Synopsis


The Mummy Returns
This big-budget sequel from writer/director Stephen Sommers navigates much of the same cliffhanger territory as George Lucas and Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones franchise. It is 1933, eight years after the events of The Mummy (1999). Legionnaire Rick O'Connell Brendan Fraser has married his Egyptologist girlfriend Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) and the couple has settled in London, where they're raising their young son Alex (Freddie Boath). The family's domestic tranquility is shattered when the 3,000-year-old mummified corpse of Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), which has been shipped to the British Museum, is resurrected once again to resume his evil quest for immortality. In the meantime, another ancient threat emerges in the form of the Scorpion King (professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson, aka. the Rock), a mighty warrior frozen in time with his supernatural army. In order to save his family, Rick is forced to seek a mythical pyramid of gold, facing marauding bands of pygmy skeletons, among other hazards. The Mummy Returns co-stars John Hannah, Oded Fehr, and Patricia Velasquez. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    A Worthy Followup to an Excellent Reboot now in 4K

    While The Mummy Returns does not quite hit all of the high notes achieved by its predecessor, the film still remains as an excellent addition to the action adventure genre and a fun popcorn flick for the whole family. Being released in 2001, the film was a smash hit with audiences. Later, when the film was released during the initial rollout of the Bluray medium, some of the flaws of the visual effects began to show; the same issue remains with this new 4K transfer. While the audio/visual presentation is rather fantastic and the vast majority of the visual effects are enhanced by this new transfer, there is one example in the third act surrounding the reincarnation of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson that could have used some more rendering time by the team at Industrial Light & Magic. That all being said, the film is a worthy upgrade for fans of the film, for the right price, and comes Highly Recommended from this reviewer.

    The 1999 Mummy film became a hit so this sequel was basically inevitable. All the major players from the first are back, this time with The Rock as the Scorpion King. Brandan Fraser & Rachel Weisz are back and, while their characters are now married with a son, they are still no different than the last time. Likewise, the CGI (yes, including those stupid bugs) is just as headache-inducing.

    Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) O'Connell are settled in 1935 London, where they are raising their son. The O'Connells go on a desperate race to save the world from unspeakable evil and to rescue their son before it is too late. The movie is filled with action, fight scenes and comedy. An entertaining movie for the entire family.

    I love this movie. It is one of those movies that you can watch over and over with your family. The story line continues with another action packed thrilling roller coaster ride that leaves you feeling like you can do anything. This is a great movie and it is great for kids, inspiring them to get out and adventure. Great movie.

    As I indicated from my review of The Mummy in 4K this too improved with the 4K version. DTS-X sound track envelops you and makes you feel like the scarab beetles are in the room.
