I like this plot to this movie.

My thoughts on this movie are unforgettable.   

What was your favourite bit & why?

Good Bits: A short fight scene between Nick and Dr. Jekyll, THE air jet fallen scene and the London church.       

Bad Bits:  the design looks so meh, everything was so rushed, the characters are unlikeable and nothing to add to this shared universe.    

 Tom Cruise as Nick Morton
A former U.S. Military officer, who unintentionally unearths the tomb of Princess Ahmanet, unleashing an unspeakable evil. Nick becomes haunted, fused with and possessed by Set after Ahmanet puts a curse on him.

 Annabelle Wallis as Jennifer “Jenny” Halsey
A feisty, kind, stubborn, and intelligent archeologist who has a past with Nick. She secretly works for the monster-hunting organization known as Prodigium.

 Sofia Boutella as Princess Ahmanet
She is loosely based on the ancient Egyptian goddess, Amunet. Once in line to be the queen of Ancient Egypt, Ahmanet murdered her father and his family in order to resurrect Set, an act for which she was cursed for all eternity and buried alive, until she is accidentally freed as the titular Mummy.

 Jake Johnson as Sergeant Chris Vail
Nick’s friend and closest ally.                    

Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde
A brilliant scientist who leads Prodigium, an organization dedicated to locating, containing, and when necessary, destroying monsters. Due to a failed experiment intended to purge his soul of darkness, he must regularly inject himself with a serum to prevent himself from transforming into his evil and monstrous alter-ego, Mr. Edward Hyde.                                                         

I can’t till you to go and see it because this is one of these film at you at to see for yourself.

Rating: 1½ out of 5 stars – Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes.
