Classic Sequel

on 3/21/2013

All the effects and vistas look absolutely vivid and stunning in the movie. I was really impressed with how the movie appeared in this format. Every grain of sand as well as all the detail present in the Scorpion King, the wall of water, and of course the Army of Annubis were all realistic looking. This is a very good buy.

Product Overview

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 (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson). 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)

Review The story for The Mummy Returns is a meager and muddled affair peppered with deus ex machina contrivances...Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz rekindle the cute chemistry that existed between their characters in The Mummy. Freddie Boath makes an effective addition to the cast, primarily because he's not as annoying as most movie kids. John Hannah is back as the fatuous Jonathan. Arnold Vosloo's Im-Ho-Tep is subtly diminished, perhaps because he now has to share the spotlight with two other villains. Patricia Velazquez has an expanded role here from the one she essayed in the first film. And the part of The Scorpion King doesn't challenge The Rock's thespian abilities - all he has to do is snarl and look tough - things he is familiar with from his day job...The Mummy Returns offers one surprise - an unexpectedly poignant dramatic moment in which we feel a surge of sympathy for one of the characters. Unfortunately, it's for one of the bad guys, which makes the ending a downer. Overall, the film probably offers what fans of The Mummy are expecting. The thinner, unnecessarily long storyline notwithstanding, this is essentially more of the same. It's hollow, lightweight entertaininment - not unpleasant, but far from the summer's definitive action/adventure flick.

Review Two years ago "The Mummy" breathed new life into an old form. "The Mummy Returns" does the opposite. It takes a lively premise, kills it and wraps it in tight bandages. It will take a future generation to unwrap this tradition and make it live again...This is not to say the new movie is all bad. It has many of the same elements that made the first film charming -- except charm..."The Mummy Returns" suffers from the bloat common to sequels. Like a guilty parent showering his child with gifts, writer-director Stephen Sommers tries to compensate for a palpable lack of inspiration with generosity. Everything's big: The special effects (armies of dog-men marching); the soundtrack (like a biblical epic); the picture's length; and even Weisz's hair extensions...One thing is unforgivably big, and that's the plot. The picture has two villains, as in one too many. There is Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), who wants to take over the world. And there's the Scorpion King, who also wants to take over the world. The Scorpion King is played by wrestling superstar the Rock, convincing in his film debut as a big guy with muscles...It's all computer-generated nonsense, and when the film isn't nonsensical and violent, it's just violent. For a movie aimed at young teenagers, "The Mummy Returns" has a surprising amount of machine-gun fire and dead bodies.

Jeffrey Lyons, WNBC-TV A must-see adventure!
Jonathan Foreman, New York Post Perfectly enjoyable swashbuckling, eye-catching entertainment.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times Both pleasantly old-fashioned and packed with up-to-date computer-generated special effects...
New York Daily News Breathlessly action-packed!
Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer ...a mite darker and scarier and the effects a little spiffier [than The Mummy].
Todd McCarthy, Variety ...bursts with visual goodies...[and] nonstop action...
Tor Thorsen, Reel.com ...a fast pace, plenty of self-mocking humor, and a sarcophagus-full of majestic special effects.
