    The Mummy splits Indiana Jones in two - action man Rick O'Connell and brainy archaeologist Evelyn Carnahan - to recreate a version of the pulp franchise for the 90s. It's a lot goofier than Raiders et al., even cartoony, with much of the action happening or resolving as a result of slapstick clumsiness. While still a fun enough adventure film, the tone struck often lacks tension, despite the death toll being fairly high. Of course, 90s CGI in such large quantities often takes me out of picture. I shouldn't say 90s, it's true of films made today that overuse CG, especially CG creatures, to the point where nothing looks real (though we have the capacity to create photo-real elements, too many strains the budget and reduces both quality and impact). The Mummy feels to me like the first of these over-CGed fantasy films, its success paving the way for less restrained and less watchable films. Set brain to off, fill mouth with popcorn, enjoy, repeat no more than every 15 years. 7 years ago
