Peter Bradshaw Guardian The Mummy is cheerful, good-natured and entertaining and its cast did engagingly silly things like ride camels through the desert; though the film relies on some dodgy stereotypes, not really palatable despite the 1920s setting. Rated: 4/5 Jul 5, 2024 Full Review David Hunter Hollywood Reporter Far more ambitious than its predecessors but a notch or two below the unique event-movie experience it might have been. May 12, 2020 Full Review Keith Phipps AV Club It's passable entertainment, but it'll likely leave you wanting more. Rated: A- Feb 27, 2020 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast A perfect blend of action, adventure, romance, horror and comedy. Rated: 5/5 May 7, 2024 Full Review Howard Waldstein CBR The Brendan Fraser-led film The Mummy is a joyous ode to old Hollywood adventures packed with wit and charm. Rated: 7/10 Apr 30, 2024 Full Review Alan Jones Radio Times It's all here: ancient curses, an embalmed high priest, two rival parties searching for archaeological treasure and dashing legionnaire Brendan Fraser romancing prim librarian Rachel Weisz.
