Rating: «« out of 4

Running Time: 89 minutes

There are plenty of fun things to do while vacationing in Mexico. Sunbathing on the beaches, strolling through quaint towns, swimming in the gorgeous waters, hopping into rickety old motorboat heading to the middle of nowhere, entering a rusty, dilapidated cage surrounded by hungry great white sharks more than 25 feet in length. Well, maybe not the last bit, but there’s no 47 Meters Down (or Johannes Roberts’ 47 Meters Down, as the title credit bafflingly proclaims) without some serious lapses in judgment.

Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) are sisters who find themselves in this unlikely scenario. The equipment looks about...

Running Time: 110 min.

Ever thought that the only problem with the classic Universal Monsters series was that they needed to team up and form an underground league to fight greater evil? I didn’t think so, but that is the tack that has officially been taken. The Mummy is an attempt to start a new “Dark Universe” series of films that will eventually combine characters like Frankenstein’s Monster, The Invisible Man and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. While I’ll admit to being amused by the idea of these monsters coming together (personally, I think they should fight crime while tackling their various psychological issues), based on their first attempt...
