All You Need to Know

I.M.C.F Review
Firstly, the idea of remaking 'The Mummy' itself was not a great idea I believe. Its not uncommon, especially given to all the Marvel and DC film reboots... Where we often see a certain line of films being remade. Exp, Spider man etc. So yeah... Its not uncommon, but somehow this film couldn't deliver what it was supposed to do.

Yeah it was a bit scary for a scene or two. Yeah it had Zombies, Mummies and Tom Cruise. But it had more unanswered questions and more flaws than the connected points! All the best parts of the film are in the Trailer itself! Watch it again, and probably skip the film!

To be precise... there's no proper base to the characters. You never know whom you are watching on screen and why they are doing, what they were doing. No proper romance or friendship or connection among the characters too!

All it had is a powerful 'Mummy' myth, which comes to life on an expedition adventure and ends in a 'Somewhat' different way. But apart from that, there's no link or explanation to what is happening and why it is happening!

I.M.C.F Rating : 74/100
Direction : 6/10 : Failed to lay base to characters, give connections among them and explain his thoughts and ideas clearly. Smart enough to cut short CGI at most places though!
Production Values :7/10 : 3D effects are not at all good and the the film is not greatly made. Smart enough to film it with that low costs!
Story/Plot : 6/10 : We have seen 'Mummy' before. So we know what to expect. Nothing new in this part. Probably second part might be good!
Cast Performances : 9/10 : Tom, Annabelle and Sofia were on the screen for like 90% of the film and at least they did well!
Music : 8/10 : Suited the pace of the film.
Cinematography : 9/10 : Did well in helping avoid CGI, where not needed!
Action Sequences : 7/10 : When Zombies and Mummies are said to be powerful... They should be powerful and unbeaten... No matter if it is Tom Cruise or not! Same old mistakes!
Screenplay/Editing : 8/10 : Not boring. So counts as good!
Dialogues : 7/10 : Simple ones. And ... Felt like there were some mistakes, which is usually rare!
Awe Moment(s) : 7/10 : All those in Trailer, and maybe just the climax and the intro scene between Tom and Annabelle.
