  • Summary: Still fun, but adding annoying, bratty children is never a good addition to a series.

More Enjoyable than the First.

  • Excerpt: The Mummy back in 1999 got the concept and execution right when it reinvented the classic Boris Karloff film, and made it fresh, visceral and vastly entertaining for the modern day audiences. Does the sequel, The Mummy Returns, meet the expectation left by its predecessor? I think that it does just that but I actually found it to be more enjoyable. ’The Mummy Returns', like the original, is a lot of fun, although that doesn't necessarily make it a great sequel.

"The Mummy Returns" by Yojimbo

19 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Brendan Fraser and co are once again terrorised by cartoon mummies in this typical Hollywood sequel; it tries so hard to outdo the first that the ingredients that made it work get lost in the flabby, overblown excess. The Mummy worked because it had fun interplay between hugely likeable characters, only marred by the over-reliance on cartoony CGI. So what did Sommers do? Cut out all the characterisation and dialogue, and put in loads more CGI..

The Mummy Returns (Deluxe Edition) review.

  • Excerpt: Movie: The story takes place about 8 years after the first movie as an Egyptian cult brings Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) back to life. Imhotep still seeks to resurrect his love Anck-Su-Namun (Patricia Velasquez), but he also wants to find the lair of the Scorpion King (The Rock) so he can kill him and once he does, he will have control of the army of Anubis.

  • Summary: I could have done without all the cheesy one-liners and over-acting performances, but some of the action scenes are a lot of old-school fun, a la Indiana Jones.

Second of the Mummy triolgy

  • Excerpt: The Mummy Returns was just a slight notch below the story line quality of the first one for me but still very good. The AQ and PQ were the same as the first which is excellent. More great special effects are included which is a good thing. The Rock as a CG Scorpion King however looks freaky. Just over an hour in extra content but mostly SD begs for more and better extras.

Non-stop action

  • Summary: The success of "The Mummy" in 1999 surprised everyone, and on the day that it opened, Universal Studios greenlit another sequel. The original (the 1999 one) was a lot of fun because it mixed creepy scares with awesome action and goofy humor. The sequel does more or less the same thing, except that the action sequences come pretty much one after another from beginning to end.
