Soldier of fortune Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) accidentally discovers the tomb of a female pharaoh of ancient Egypt named Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) during a firefight in the Middle East. But when he and a British Egyptologist (Annabelle Wallis) try to excavate the findings, the resurrected Ahmanet emerges from her sarcophagus with a plot to enslave humanity. Russell Crowe, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance co-star in this action-horror hybrid from director Alex Kurtzman, which is the first entry in a shared cinematic universe based on the iconic Universal monsters.~Jack Rodgers
I bought this though I had read bad reviews on it. I’m glad I went ahead and got it. I enjoyed it, and thought it was very entertaining. Is it perfect? No. I think they would have done better with it, if they played more straight forward and took out the comedy elements. The 4K transfer is really good. Very sharp and detailed. Overall, a pretty descent movie with a great video presentation.
I recenty got a 4K UHD TV and a 4K/Blu-ray player. Although I have a huge library of blu-ray and DVD films, I didn't have any 4K discs. So I purchsed this film on 4K (which incides a blu-ray and a digital code) to watch on my new player. The film quality is mond-blowing and the sound is amazing as well. It almost made up for the film itself being not the best IMO.
