Synopsis


The Mummy
Loosely adapted from the classic 1932 horror film starring Boris Karloff, The Mummy is set in Egypt, where over 3,000 years ago the high priest Imhotep (played by Arnold Vosloo) was given the all-important assignment of preparing the recently dead for their journey into the afterlife. However, Imhotep made one terrible mistake - he became smitten with Anck-Su-Namun, the mistress of the Pharaoh himself. Driven mad by jealousy and love, Imhotep murdered the Pharaoh, and his punishment was to be buried alive and suffer the torment of an eternal life in his wretched tomb. In 1925, a band of adventurers seeking fame and fortune - led by Rick O'Connel (Brendan Fraser), an American expatriate who has joined the foreign legion, and Evelyn Carnarvon (Rachel Weisz), an amateur archeologist - find a previously unknown burial site in Egypt. The team starts to dig, hoping to find lost riches, but instead they disturb the tomb of Imhotep, and soon the cursed priest rises from his grave to wreck vengeance on humanity. The Mummy was written and directed by Stephen Sommers, whose previous cinematic journeys into the past include The Jungle Book and The Adventures Of Huck Finn. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    This is an awesome movie albeit a little old. My only problem was I ordered my item online. When I picked it up at the store, there was this big gigantic sticker that Best Buy placed on the box. I wouldn't want to put this box in my collection with that big sticker. Also it has a lot of adhesive so it would be very hard to remove without ruining the box. Find better procedures to confirm that the item has been obtained.

    I bought this because it was on sale as a promotion for the new "Mummy" movie. I'm not sure what there is to say about this purchase.. It's a favorite movie of mine. Plenty of action and humor. The story is interesting enough and all of the actors performances are great. Honestly, I haven't messed around with any special features. There's some deleted scenes. A few commentaries but I don't use those.

    A 2008 disc in a 2017 package

    Universal created a new disc for the release of the new Cruise reboot and a stellar remaster for 4k home video. Unlike that disc, the blu-ray here remains the same as it did in 2008. The picture may be to the liking of most but Universal saved some money but reprinting the same master as from about a decade ago. If you want to see the film at it's best you'll need the 4k version to do so.

    Fun nonsense.

    The Mummy is two hours of absolute machismo fueled nonsense. Everything about it is silly and doesn't work as much as it thinks it does (Brendan Fraiser's character for example), and yet all of it feels timeless. Like an unearthed adventure film from the 40's. And somehow I feel that's the tone they were going for, and it worked.

    This Mummy still holds the fun adventure and nice comedic touches even in today's time. I remember watching this in the cinema when it first came out and thoroughly enjoying it. It never gets old. Aside from the classic Mummy, this was a cool retailing of it; Tom Cruise's version... not so much. Worth owning for the adventure!

    I saw this movie in the theater back in the 90s. It's still really good, and the special effects hold up really well in this Blu-ray copy. I was watching on a 4k tv, so any problems with the effects are far more noticeable. It was good to rewatch this and be drawn into the story once again.

    I bought this copy of the movie for the digital version and the movie rewards for the new mummy movie. The movie was great and the digital copy worked well. I had some issues with the movie reward redemption process, but this was an issue with Fandango, not Best Buy.

    The Mummy is such a great movie. Once I saw it was on Blu-Ray, I have to add it to my collection. Also included is a digital copy of the movie, allowing you to stream it anywhere. The price is well worth getting a quality film in two formats.
