THE MUMMY RETURNS (Theater Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

The Mummy Returns serves at the same or slightly better level as its parent film, The Mummy, due to its fight scenes. The movie cleverly interweaves the theme of Imhotep returning to get his lover back while the Scorpion King (Dwayne Johnson) fights for his right to rule Thebes. Add to that the involvement of the modern day O’Connell family and the viewer has a movie that completely involves and entertains. Director Stephen Sommer did it again. It’s worth both time and money investment and gives good tribute to Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. John Hannah, just as fun as his character demanded in the last mummy movie, provides the comic relief. Bravo! Encore! for all involved in making this film.

Storyline

The son of two adventurers finds himself and his family propelled into an otherworldly escapade involving powerful, ancient Egyptian entities.
