Starring: Tom Cruise
I’d say this one was just “alright.” I like Tom Cruise, but anyone could have played the character he did and there wasn’t really anything special about him in this one. He’s in the Egyptian desert looking for treasures when an ancient princess named Ahmanet is awakened from her crypt that she’d been trapped in for 5,000 years. His character, Nick, spends the rest of the movie “channeling” her as she sucks the life out of others to gain strength and try to avenge losing her rightful place as heir to her father’s throne. She lost that place when the king fathered a son and she felt completely betrayed. I guess it’s all meant to be a battle of good vs. evil and the power that each can have over our lives. I just didn’t buy it. The characters could have had more depth, more actual story to them, better acting, and better writing. This movie had it’s moments, but they were definitely few and far between!
