Of all the CGI-ed supernatural forces slung in Alex Kurtzman's "The Mummy" (and, believe me, there are plenty), none can compete with the spectral spectacle of Tom Cruise, at 54 .So it's almost fitting that, in one of the typically bonkers scenes in "The Mummy," Cruise awakes naked and unscathed alongside cadavers in a morgue.Cruise and "The Mummy" – the opening salvo in Universal's bid to birth its "Dark Universe" monster movie franchise – are a poor fit, and not the good kind, like "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein".There's plenty of standard, cocky Tom Cruise leading man stuff here – running, swimming, daredevil airplane acrobatics, more running – but his relentless forward momentum is sapped by the convoluted monster mishmash that engulfs "The Mummy," a movie conceived and plotted like the monster version of Marvel.Increasingly, Cruise – like big-budget movies, themselves – is running in circles.
