"Oh, I REALLY hate mummies."
- Rick O'Connell
After cutting his teeth on family friendly adventures like Disney's Huck Finn and The Jungle Book, writer/director Steven Sommers was given the task of remaking The Mummy for a new generation of moviegoers. Taking pages from Raiders of the Lost Ark and drawing on his own experience from previous movies, Sommers crafted a fun supernatural adventure that plays like a true matinee. And it is a true wonder.
It is the 1920's. Rick O'Connell, adventurer and mercanary, is sprung from jail by a beautiful British librarian and her questionable brother in the hopes that he will lead them to the lost city of Hamunaptra, City of the Dead, said to contain the wealth of Egypt. However, there is a twist. 3000 years ago, the High Priest Imhotep was imprisoned in the Hamunaptra for his part in murdering the Pharoh. Cursed with the Hom-dai, he would become incredibly powerful should he ever be awakened. Guess what happens.
The plot is fairly cliched and predictable, but enjoyable nontheless. Imhotep is, while rather evil, a person whose actions can be at least understood as he tries to ressurect his true love. The main cast is equally entertaining and impressive, with Brendan Frasier doing a fantastic Harrison Ford impersonation as O'Connell, Racheal Weis showing depth in her female lead character, and John Hannah providing some great physical comedy. Special note goes to Oded Fehr as the Med-jai warrior, Ardeth Bay. There are some great one-liners and some fantastic banter.
Like Raiders, The Mummy is an action movie, and the action delivers. Sommers has a specific style of directing that is equally reminiscent of Spielberg and Micheal Curtiz, and he knows how to do GOOD adventure.

I'm certainly no fan of Brendan Frasier, but in these two movies, well, he sort of grew on me. I actually didn't like the first movie originally, but after seeing the second one I gave the first another try, and now I almost like it better than the sequel. What draws me to these is the atmosphere - everything dealing with the ancient Egyptian ruins is wonderfully portrayed. I really felt as if I was in some fabulous, lost civilization. And when they do flashbacks to ancient times, the imagery is breathtaking. The special effects - which are either as subtle or spectacular as the scene calls for - are blended so seamlessly with the live-action stuff that you don't even notice they're special effects.
The action in both movies moves along nicely, and the characters are likable and sympathetic. I found myself rooting for them - yes, even Frasier's character. In the second movie the bad guys (Imhotep and Anck Su Namun) steal the show, but it's just the sort of release from the goody-goody lead characters that is needed to keep the movie from getting too sugary sweet.
I've watched these movies every time they'e been on TV, so I've seen both probably five times, but still feel the need to buy the DVD's. They're just that good. If you want to forget all about reality for a couple of hours and travel to an exotic place for an exciting adventure, check these out.

The Mummy Returns is pretty much a disaster on every front.

Unlike the first picture, which made generous but sensible use of computer-generated animations, this one seems dominated and finally over-powered by its effects. As a result, while the first movie was always anchored in the real world, this one feels strangely adrift.

It also has too many expendable characters--none of them with the goofy appeal of cowardly bad guy Benny from the first movie--and, critically, it lacks any clear exposition to explain the whys and wherefores. I often had trouble keeping track of who was doing what and why. We have no sense of why the O'Connells are exploring the ruins at the outset. (They should have started the story at home with one of the wife's dreams). The movie backs into its story.

The principals have acquired a roughly 10-year-old son, but O'Connell looks exactly as he did in the first movie and Evie actually looks more movie-star-ish and glamorous. There's also NO sense of attachment to the little boy, except when the script forces it down our throats. I never got the sense that they were part of the same family.

And, very often, there is no sense of moment in this movie. As often hapens in movies these days, the fillmmakers seem to know what they want to do in individual scenes but not how to fit it all together. For instance, Evie has this huge past-life fight in her head while aboard the balloon in the movie's later stages, and then matter of factly lets the rest of the party in on it. Their blithe acceptance works to negate the entire prior scene. The Mummy's lover's spirit enters its reincarnated body--an oherwordly scene in the first movie--and the Mummy here reacts as though she'd just turned up late for a date. Just sad.
