QUICK TAKE:
Horror: Two military looters, an archaeologist and others must contend with the accidental release of an ancient Egyptian princess from her long-forgotten tomb.
PLOT:
When U.S. soldiers Sgt. Nick Morton (TOM CRUISE) and Cpl. Chris Vail (JAKE JOHNSON) aren't patrolling volatile parts of Iraq, they're working as "liberators of precious antiquities," meaning they plunder archaeological sites to sell items on the black market. While on such a mission, they encounter a number of hostile locals and the airstrike they call in results in the unearthing of a long-buried and long-forgotten Egyptian tomb. Enter British archaeologist Jenny Halsey (ANNABELLE WALLIS) who's excited by the find but peeved at Nick for stealing a map to the location after their one-night stand. Nonetheless, Col. Greenway (COURTNEY B. VANCE) orders him and Chris to join Jenny in a quick examination of the find.

Once down inside there, Jenny is amazed by the discovery, while Nick and Chris are solely interested in what they might snatch up for a later sale. During this, Nick shoots a cable that releases a sarcophagus from a pit of mercury designed to keep the mummy inside and any evil from getting in. With hostiles and a sandstorm approaching, they remove the sarcophagus and take flight, only to face evil that possesses Chris and then sends the cargo plane plummeting toward Earth. Jenny gets out via parachute before the impact that Nick somehow survives, although he now has visions of Egyptian princess Ahmanet (SOFIA BOUTELLA) who was released by the crash and is now transforming from mummy back to human form.

All of which draws the interest of Jenny's boss, Dr. Henry Jekyll (RUSSELL CROWE), who's the split personality head of Prodigium, an organization that's involved in finding, studying and destroying monsters and evil around the world. From that point on, Nick tries to wrap his head around what's happening, all of which includes Ahmanet wanting to use his body as the physical host for the ancient Egyptian god of evil.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of Cruise, anyone else in the cast, or classic horror movie characters.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
