DAY OF THE MUMMY’s artwork looks cool. It’s got a badass dude with a huge sword, some guys on horseback with machine guns, an Indiana Jones type guy with a machine gun, and a cool looking mummy head towering above everything. Sound pretty good yeah. To bad the movie doesn’t feature any swords, any guys on horse back with guns (or horses for that matter), nor any machine guns, and it’s especially missing a cool looking mummy. I don’t understand why distributors do this, falsely suckering one in by depicting that the movie will have elements in it that it clearly doesn’t.
Instead of the high action advertised on the artwork, we get a poorly written, deathly boring, and horrible performances, in this cheesestick of a film. There is Danny Glover though, whose reactions on a picture-in-picture type performance, is laughable. I can’t even express the true letdown I felt for this film. It’s one of the most boring, waste of time films I have seen in the last decade. There is absolutely nothing entertaining in the film. The actors might as well have been sock puppets spewing out this poorly written and unnatural dialogue.
Here’s the synopsis by an anonymous user on IMDB, which sums up the movie. Frankly, I don’t want to waste my time writing one for this stinker…
In hope of getting his hands on the famed diamond known as the Codix Stone, Jack Wells joins a group of archaeologists out to explore a newly discovered tomb in Egypt, that of the cursed king Neferu. When the Mummy of the king returns from the dead seeking human victims, Jack is in for the most horrifying experience of his life.
This isn’t a “found footage film” but Wells is wearing a pair of glasses with a camera built in and is able to broadcast what he’s doing to Danny Glover’s character, we are just unlucky enough to be able to see the footage too.
The picture-in-picture element with the lead character being able to interact with another character throughout the film is innovative and different, every single other element in the film is just dreadful. From the horrible looking mummy, character development that makes you hate each and every character (not to mention the pitiful acting, or lack thereof), as well as plot development, this film suffers and suffers badly.
Stay away from this stinker at all costs, unless you really like wasting minutes of your life. I guarantee you’ll want to turn this off way before the halfway mark.
