14Beating a Dead Corpse
The Mummy is a crowd-pleaser for sure, or at least it tries to be, but let's be real – it just wasn’t that exciting, overall. What's even worse is that the movie isn't much more than a mixed-up reiteration of things we’ve seen in all of the Mummy movies made
before. While under normal circumstances this would be considered homage or tribute, The Mummy is simply nothing more than a rehashing of the mummies that were unearthed before.
While remakes often have a strong market value for a reason, due to built-in audience loyalty, there is a fine line between recreating a film and lazily throwing concepts together hoping that audiences will flock to the theater.
