THE MUMMY**

DRUM - - Good Laughs - DEN­NIS CAVERNELIS

AC­TION HOR­ROR. 2017. 111 MIN. 13HV.

This is cer­tainly a first: a dull TOM CRUISE movie. Tom plays Nick, an Amer­i­can sol­dier who is cursed by an an­cient Egyp­tian princess to be­come her un­dead hus­band and help her take over the world – or some­thing.

The ac­tion se­quences are just okay, but the film buck­les un­der the weight of dreary ex­po­si­tion, doled out by Rus­sell Crowe as Dr Jekyll and ANNABELLE WAL­LIS, who plays an ar­chae­ol­o­gist. –
