Quote:
The Mummy Returns is a 2001 American adventure film written and directed by Stephen Sommers, starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo, Oded Fehr, Patricia Velásquez and Freddie Boath. The film is a sequel to the 1999 film The Mummy. Filming took place in London, Morocco, and Jordan.

The Mummy Returns inspired the 2002 spin-off film The Scorpion King which is set 5,000 years prior and whose titular character, played by Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), was introduced in this film. It was followed by the 2008 sequel The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.


Great fun. I like the original a little more, but still, an entertaining sequel.

Great movie. I enjoy this one just a little more then the first one, but just by a little. I probably need to rewatch both of them to make sure. But great movie. A

Boring, and hardly any of the charm of the previous one. Big disappointment for me.

Boring, stupid and nowhere near as fun as the original. In fact, I'd just as soon never see this movie again, it was that bad. D+

The first one is a better movie, but this one is more entertaining, for me.

No where near as good as the first. If it didnt get too rediculous and effects heavy, I'd say it would be on par. But where I'd give the first an A, I'd give this one a B/B+ I'm not that enthused for the third.

A disgusting farce, much worse than the original, which was barely decent. A (very) weak plot, stupid dialogues and characters and some scenes that are just the carbon copy of those seen in the first movie. Not even the special effects help this flick, as the ridiculously fake Scorpion King clearly shows.

It's very imaginative and entertaining. Not as good as the first, but still a solid adventure film.

Big drop-off from the first, which had that loose, fun adventure thing going for it. This just feels like too much. And the part where they outrun the sun..... :grrr:

This is good and the actions set pieces are as good as the first movie but its the story this time which fails to bring anything new or the reason for reviving Imphotep. I loved Alex's work in this movie as well but the end (specially after they enter the Scorpion King) is so rushed which brings the movie down.

I honestly enjoy this sequel just as much as the first one even though I do think the first movie is a bit better overall. I just love the fact that it felt bigger in terms of scope and the cast is still a lot of fun in it as well. I liked the addition of The Rock too even though the CGI for The Scorpion King doesn't hold up well at all and I honestly don't think it ever did.
