They started with a bad idea - turning the classic monsters into some sort of modern action franchise and made it worse

I know a lot of people don't like movie critics or trust their opinions but when everyone says a movie stinks it generally does - like THE MUMMY 2017 version.

This sounded completely misguided from the first reports that it was in the works. And then the first trailer made it look like Mission:Impossible part 6.

The Mission Impossible movies at least make some sense- this is just an incoherent mess jumping between tired action scenes and non scary horror bits.  They do nothing interesting with the Mummy mythology

A really BAD movie in every way- an action- monster movie mishmash that works as neither
