About the Movie

The year's biggest action-adventure is coming home with a vengeance! Brendan Fraser and an all-star cast reunite with Stephen Sommers for explosive, non-stop thrills in "the ultimate rollercoaster movie ride!" (Seattle Post Intelligencer) An ancient legacy of terror is unleashed when the accursed mummy, Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), is resurrected - along with a force even more powerful: The Scorpion King (The Rock). Now, as the fate of all mankind hangs in the balance, Rick O'Connell (Fraser) and his wife Evie (Rachel Weisz) embark on a daring, desperate race to save their son - and the world - from unspeakable evil. Supercharged with pulse-pounding action and spectacular special effects that'll blow you away, The Mummy Returns is "the best adventure movie of the year!" (MTV Radio)

Definitely Fun... But Seriously Flawed...

I'm a fan of The Mummy franchise -- I will see the threequel -- and as such when this film was released I was very excited to see it. Now, that being said, it isn't without its flaws. The acting is pretty good, though sometimes things become a little hammy. The writing and directing are also well done, this is like the mini-version of what Indiana Jones could be -- though that may be too big a compliment. The special-effects are TERRIBLE! The Scorpion King looks so fake! The army of Anubis looks fake! Everything that had to be inserted digitally comes out terrible. Overall, The Mummy Returns is a pretty fun film and though it's basically B-movie material, you shouldn't go in expecting too much. Worth a rent, maybe a buy.

One of my favorite movies

This movie I think is one of those good movies tha is fun to watch over and over. I like the fighting styles that are key parts to the intensety of this series of movies. The Rock plays a bad guy in this movie. It's a mix of action, comedy, and thriller that will get your heart pounding. If you don't see this movie, its your loss.


A great movie with lots of good action, many twists and turns in the plot line and a definatly must see. A good sequel.
