Excerpt: Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser) and Evie (Rachel Weisz) have defeated the powerful Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) once, but the old bones don’t want to remain buried it seems. After ten years of marriage and a young son Alex, Rick and Evie have moved on to other things, but the memories of their past...
Excerpt: With the success of the first film, a sequel was sure to follow. Fraser and Weisz continue their onscreen chemistry, and John Hannah is as funny as ever as Rachel's brother, Jonathan. The introduction of the Scorpion King sets up the franchise spinoff (also available on Blu-ray).
Conclusion: The Mummy Returns is a solid sequel that doesn't retain the magic and charm of the first film, but is entertaining enough in its own right. Perhaps the movie's biggest downfall is the lack of polish on the appearance of the Scorpion King.
Conclusion: 'The Mummy Returns' is a fun sequel, and for my money, more enjoyable than the first 'Mummy.' This Blu-ray is very strong, with excellent video on par with the previous HD DVD release, and audio and extras that exceed it.
Excerpt: An ancient legacy of terror is unleashed when the accursed mummy, Imhotep, is resurrected - along with a force even more powerful: The Scorpion King. Now, as the fate of all mankind hangs in the balance, Rick O'Connell and his wife Evie embark on a daring, desperate race to save their son - and the...
Excerpt: The general maxim for Hollywood sequels is "Give us more, and make it bigger." Usually, applying said maxim makes for a picture that seems better at first, but in the end tends to pale in comparison to the original. However, The Mummy Returns manages to follow the formula and make it work.
Summary: Writer-Director Stephen Sommers continues to set back the cause of Egyptology with a sequel that resurrects his 1999 hit, never straying far from his formula. As long as he keeps the action going - and he does - you can almost forgive the glaring idiocy that runs rampant through the film.
Excerpt: Shouldn't a film called The Mummy Returns star the Mummy? You might think so, but despite this small oversight, The Mummy Returns is indeed a worthy successor to its namesake. The Hobbit for one, is damn sick and tired of wasting cash on these death and life, life and death, birth and rebirth, love...
Excerpt: Natuurlijk veel over gelezen in de pers
en normaal gesproken zou ik niet echt naar een vervolg gaan. De eerste film 'The Mummy' heb ik een paar maanden geleden aangeschaft, dus leek het wel gaaf om
het vervolg in de bios te gaan zien.
