Mister Mummy: Review
The film, despite its interesting concept, did not impress the critics and the audience. Reviewers gave a mediocre response to the film stating that the makers did not explore the subject much, and in an attempt to entertain the audience, they failed to make them laugh at the supposed slapstick comedy. Some called this a lost opportunity where despite good material and good actors, not much has been done throughout the film.
