I don't know what I feel about this one. I like Tom Cruise movies but I'm not sure I want to see a Mummy remake movie.

The original still holds up. Not too many people like Brenden but i think it was a great movie. Very hard to follow the 1st Mummy. Especially after reading that this one will be some dumb US Navy Seal in a cave in Iraq or some crap like that. It needs to be set in the 20s to 40s. That era had that archeological wonder to it as well as the belief in the curses. Setting it in modern times just doesn't wouldn't be the same. Still gonna give it a shot though.

Well this mummy is going suck. I liked brandon in the series and the guy that played is brother in law.
