Surprisingly, this was pretty good.
17 July 2019 | by ofpsmithSee all my reviews

You wouldn't expect a story like this to work as well as it does. Three friends in middle school named Marshall (Mario Yedidia), Gilbert (Adam Wylie), and Amy (Clara Bryant) find, and accidently reanimate a mummy they dub Harold (Bill Fagerbakke). Harold breaks loose and runs around their small California town and the kids have to find him before Harold is caught by these mobster type villains who want to sell him on the black market. My describing the plot makes it seem like a really lazy set up but it's done surpringly pretty well. It's actually a pretty fun movie. The three main characters were all really enjoyable to watch, almost reminding me of E.T. or The Goonies. They don't swear or do anything like that but they act snarky to each other, they call each other loser, they act like real kids. It's obviously aimed for a child audience but (personally) I think there are things that can appeal to adults as well.
