Many people thought that when poor old Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) met with the 'warm liquid goo phase at the end of The Mummy, that his career as a rampaging monster intent on ruling the world was over. Well, let me tell you that not since Bobby Ewings return to Dallas have we seen a bigger comeback.
Unearthed by a party of treasure hunters with more than treasure on their minds, the body of Imhotep is back, and this time things are worse.
In the ten years that have passed since the original film, Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) have married, had a child, and set up camp in London. Unfortunately, their desire to look for ancient Egyptian relics has strengthened, and we find them getting into deep water while on the hunt for The Scorpion King.
Movie Poster, Mummy Returns
Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) compares dental work with an old friend.
Where The Mummy was an action/adventure with comic elements thrown in, The Mummy Returns has far more comedy in both the dialogue and the special effects, some of it (especially in the air) is very funny indeed. This input of more humour makes the film very light-hearted whilst still containing a suitable number of Mummy-induced frights.
