Buy it... if you still long for the days of Brian Tyler's early horror achievements, that sound resurrected and merged with broad symphonic fantasy stokes among oppressive action and suspense.

Avoid it... if you demand these characters and locations be treated with appropriately dramatic romanticism or satisfying exoticism, the booming reliance on heavy weight in the orchestrations and mix damaging the score's dynamism.

The Mummy: (Brian Tyler) Good, old-fashioned monster movies are hard to screw up. Their stories usually aren't that great, their scares are cheap, and they overflow with campy silliness. But their charm rests in the suspense of all logic for the thrill of monstrous fantasy. No matter how hard audiences tried to forgive the fallacies of 2017's reboot of the "Mummy" concept on the big screen, they apparently could not overcome the total incoherence of its plot. The Alex Kurtzman film, The Mummy, barely scratched back its costs in earnings, scorned severely by critics and jeopardizing Universal's "Dark Universe" series of movies meant to resurrect the nastiest, most famous monsters of yesteryear for renewed profit-taking. Perhaps some of the blame for the frightfully poor storyline of The Mummy rests on the shoulders of star Tom Cruise, who apparently wielded an inordinate amount of influence on the post-production of the movie. A significant step behind everything from the 1932 to 1999 versions of roughly the same tale, the 2017 retelling ties plotlines together that involve ancient Egypt, the knights of old England, and modern-day Iraq and London, the titular character seeking revenge upon the contemporary world for her incarceration 2,000 years earlier. While the evil Egyptian bitch may be the glitzy showcase of The Mummy, the movie's actual purpose is to establish the now 55-year-old Cruise as an undead franchise action star, ready and willing to join with hunters of the paranormal to thwart the monsters inevitably unleashed upon the land by the studio. Film score collectors have held a soft spot for the music from the prior mummy-related movies, the more recent entries by Jerry Goldsmith and Alan Silvestri remaining fan favorites for decades. Some measure of relief was expressed when Brian Tyler was hired to handle the score for The Mummy, as he leads the younger generation of composers in championing a traditional orchestral approach (sometimes blended with electronic accompaniment) akin to Goldsmith's later style of writing. As a topic best addressed musically by a swashbuckling flavor of old-school orchestral pomp, The Mummy was treated appropriately by Tyler, who prides himself as being both cognizant and respectful of film score legends. His affinity for Goldsmith is particularly notable, though the subtle references in instrumentation and style in his music here intentionally emulate many generations of the concept's music.
