  1. Unlike buying this product in retail stores, for some reason the Amazon copies of this title do not include the $7.50 free movie cash for Mummy 3. Buyer beware!

  2. This film is one in a long line of films hyped to the point where the public is brainwashed into seeing it. The premise of The Mummy seemed simple enough, remake a classic feature in the Universal Pictures archives, throw in some low budget stars, hire the guy who do effects on Star Wars and you can’t miss. Well, even that wasn’t enough to make the film flimsy.

    Brendan Fraser is Rick O’Connell, a man of adventure who pretty much has to be cajoled by John Carnohan and his sister Evelyn to help them in their quest to find the tomb of Imhotep. Upon finding the tomb, they not only break a sacred seal, but unleash the mummy who must collect various incanter beacons to return to his full flesh form.

    First of all, Brendan Fraser is not an action hero! He has about as much clout as Keanu Reeves. Not once did I believe that this guy could be an action star. It seemed that this was Brendan saying “All right! I’ll never be Indiana Jones, but here’s as close as I’ll ever get!”

    The pacing of the story and other characters also fall through, the comedy relief is tepid, as is Rachel Weisz as Evelyn. Like a character out of thet Indiana Jones series, she is the girl who is the misfit who eventually turns out beuatiful in the end, but she has a major attitude problem towards the leading man (think Willie Scott from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom).

    The only saving grace for this film that gave it 2 stars was the effects work by Industrial Light & Magic. The Mummy is about the most recognizable full-body motion capture figure since ILM created the T-1000 for Terminator 2.

  3. I thought that the movie had many interesting scenes, and the recostruction of what the pyramids would have looked like then was nice, however imhotep was a carpenter, not a priest. Anyway, that is one small error amongst several. Unfortunately I was taking egyptian history when this movie came out, which ruined the impact for me due to a few errors on the side of the movies historical accuracy. Oh well. Some of the computer effects looked downright fake as well, but some looked really good. That’s all I have to say about that ;).

  4. To call this movie funny or in any way resembling an Indiana Jones movie is a great mistake. Aside, from some impressive special effects, this movie has no redeeming qualities. I enjoy lighter cinematic fare as much as the next guy, but the script here is awful and the acting even worse. Don’t say I didn’t tell you so!

  5. Thie is definitely one of the worst pieces of cinematic trash that it has ever been my misfor- tune to see,
