Poster for The Mummy Returns

Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz and writer-director Stephen Sommers all return to their posts in the follow-up to 1999's supernatural action-adventure, The Mummy. New to the cast is Dwayne Johnson as The Scorpion King. More

Rick (Fraser) and Evelyn O'Connell (Weisz), along with their 8 year old son Alex (Freddie Boath), discover the key to the legendary Scorpion King's (Johnson) might, the fabled Bracelet of Anubis. Unfortunately, a newly resurrected Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) has designs on the bracelet as well, and isn't above kidnapping its new bearer, Alex, to gain control of Anubis's otherworldly army.

...this follow-up still lacks the wit and elan that would have made this burgeoning series more than a popcorn-picture franchise.

May be the least original motion picture ever.

Forget trying to follow the plot ... It's just a convenient peg on which Sommers hangs a chain of action set pieces (desert battle, jungle shootout, British Museum blow-out) that soon blur into monotony.

A piss-poor mummy movie indeed that doesn't deliver a damn thing worth preserving.

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.

The Mummy Returns learns from the past to produce a film that is bigger, better and more tightly wound than the '99 original.

As escapist, noisy popcorn entertainment, it certainly delivers.
