My shortish review of The Mummy.

Short version: it’s not bad, but it’s not the Brendan Fraser / Rachel Weiss (and John Hannah!*) The Mummy. Russell Crowe did everything I expected him to. I don’t think that this is going to be a mega-hit, but they might still try to bring off the Frankenstein flick.

Longer version: …pretty much the same thing, really.  The film gets credit for harking back to the old-style special effects and makeup (while using CGI to reproduce them). It’s not a horrible film, but it’s uneven and the timing is a little rushed. I dunno if this franchise is going to have legs, sorry. Not that many of you are in fact sorry to hear that.

*Because of this one scene.  You all know that this is my favorite scene of the movie.
