Storyline Heading

An expedition of treasure-seeking explorers in the Sahara Desert in 1925. Stumbling upon an ancient tomb, the hunters unwittingly set loose a 3,000-year-old legacy of terror, which is embodied in the vengeful reincarnation of an Egyptian priest who had been sentenced to an eternity as one of the living dead.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Sci-Fi Thriller - The Mummy is a special effects-driven action adventure with lots of supernatural violence and action. Younger viewers are most likely to enjoy the unique visual effects and the frequent battle sequences, with hints of the daredevil adventures of Indiana Jones. Many older viewers could find the film too violent, or consider the script both overly convoluted and underdeveloped in terms of character. A movie in which a lot happens, but not much of it matters.
Cast and Crew Heading
Brendan Fraser (George of The Jungle)
Rachel Weisz (Swept From The Sea)
John Hannah (Sliding Doors)
Wri/Dir: Stephen Sommers (Deep Rising)

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
When it comes to genre film-making, there's an easy way to get the audience to respond the way you want them to respond, and there's the way writer/director Stephen Sommers chooses to craft his remake of THE MUMMY. This version is more action-adventure than horror, and delivers a few rousing sequences combining unique visual effects with narrow escapes. The goals of a film like THE MUMMY should be fairly simple, yet Sommers overburdens the film with too much exposition and a lumbering pace between effects sequences. Groan if you must, but THE MUMMY needed to be wrapped up much more tightly.

Dashing legionnaire Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and Beni (Kevin J. O'Connor), his weasel of a companion, stumble upon the hidden ruins of Hamunaptra while in the midst of a battle in 1923-3,000 years after Imhotep has suffered a fate worse than death. Some years later, as O'Connell languishes in prison awaiting an almost certain execution, he finds that his knowledge of the exact location of Hamunaptra becomes a bargaining tool to save his life. The legendary riches buried beneath the sands of Hamunaptra have become an obsession with both treasure-hunters and archaeologists, and O'Connell finds himself in an unlikely alliance with the beautiful, yet clumsy Egyptologist Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) and her ne'er-do-well brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). The trio leave Cairo for a journey which will take them down the Nile, across the treacherous expanse of the Sahara and to an encounter with a malevolent force with power beyond imagination....

But they are not alone in their search for Hamunaptra. Along the way, they discover that a group of American scavengers are on the same mission. Not even Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr), the leader of a group of mysterious warriors sworn to protect the sacred burial grounds from the rebirth of Imhotep into the modern day world, can stand in their way, and the Americans greedy search for hidden riches leads to the unearthing of the curse. As foretold, Imhotep's awesome power is manifested in corporeal form as the Mummy. His strength is inhuman. He has the power to release the ten plagues of Egypt over all the land. And one by one, the explorers fall victim to the creature's horrifying curse.

Those remaining are forced to make one desperate, final attempt to prevent the Mummy's total regeneration into an invincible force of evil and to keep Evelyn from becoming the human host for the tortured soul of Imhotep's long-lost love, Anck-Su-Namun.
