Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - This is a movie sure to please anyone who enjoyed the original Mummy. The effects are outstanding and nearly constant throughout the movie. I doubt I need to say it, but DON'T come to this movie expecting a great in depth story and character development. What you get is action and LOTS OF IT!

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times  Full Review
POOR "The mistake of "The Mummy Returns" is to abandon the characters, and to use the plot only as a clothesline for special effects and action sequences."

Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY  Full Review
GOOD "Sure, the adventure fantasy has more than the occasional leap in logic, but it's easy to overlook plot holes when your eyes are being boggled."

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
AVERAGE "It's hollow, lightweight entertainment - not unpleasant, but far from the summer's definitive action/adventure flick."

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some of the highest moviegoer opinions I've seen in some time. Nearly everyone loved the Mummy. I would highly recommend it to everyone that enjoys this type of movie.

As always, there were a few who didn't care for it. Based on their negative comments, they apparently didn't see the first one. Sure, it's a little hokey and silly at times, but that's half the fun.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
An INCREDIBLE movie for what it is. Keep in mind, this is strictly a "turn off your mind and enjoy" type of movie. If you go expecting a compelling story and in depth characterizations, you're in the wrong movie :-) This one is strictly action and special effects with just a little story to pull it together.I predict everyone that enjoyed the first Mummy will LOVE this one!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Deep within a shadowy chamber in the British Museum of London, an ancient force of terror is about to be reborn.

It is 1933, the Year of the Scorpion. Eight years have passed since dashing legionnaire Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and fearless Egyptologist Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) fought for their lives against a 3000-year-old enemy named Lmhotep (Arnold Vosloo).

Rick and Evelyn are married now and have settled in London where they are raising their son Alex (Freddie Boath). When a chain of events finds the corpse of Imhotep resurrected in the British Museum, the mummy Imhotep walks the earth once more, determined to fulfill his quest for immortality. But another force has also been set loose in the world ... one born of the darkest rituals of ancient Egyptian mysticism, and even more powerful than Imhotep. When these two forces clash, the fate of the world will hang in the balance, sending the O'Connells on a desperate race to save the world from unspeakable evil and rescue their son before it is too late.

Their quest will take them back to Egypt, into the realm of The Scorpion King (The Rock). This fierce warrior promised his soul to the god Anubis in exchange for military might long ago. He and his army have been frozen in time, suspended between life and death and ready to kill again, through five millenia. The Scorpion King possesses powers, secrets and strengths beyond even the dreaded Imhotep. He is angry, deadly — and should not be disturbed.
