The Mummy Movie
The Mummy: There are many things that are new in this movie; a new character is introduced and a long-buried princess is made the Mummy
The Mummy is the age story told again and again but in different flavors. In 2017, Ahmanet disturbed from her resting place will by American army will seek vengeance for her untimely and unceremonious death. This time it is Tom Cruise (Nick Morton) that is leading the expedition to ancient treasure buried under Egyptian Desert that brings the classic-bandage-wrapped-monster out from her cave and tries to transport her to the London Museum that has already many stories of curses from ancient elements.
Ahmanet is a long dead princess and there is a story behind her burial. She’s buried live in the sand and it was thought that she’ll never come out. But she’s alive and waiting for the time to come back to reclaim her throne. This time it is American army that digs her out of the sand and faces the curse that she brings with her. This time, she’ll be moving with more corpses that are more powerful that you can think of.
The army is doing its duty but they are also worried about uncovering a dead corpse. There is anxiety among the soldiers involved in the project but there is a scientist who can see the science behind mummies. Annabelle Wallis (Jenny Halsey) is the scientist with the army and she’s certain that there is no curse in bringing the dead mummies out of their caves. She takes the responsibility of safe transportation of the mummy to British Museum.
Another interesting character in the movie is Dr. Henry Jekyll played by Russel Crowe. He seems to be an ally of Ahmanet or he pretends to be her trusted companion and he knows about her evil motives. And he’s there to communicate with other monsters to help the long-dead princess establish her rule over the world. Sofia Boutella is playing Ahmanet, the mummy in the movie.
