5.0 out of 5 stars Movies to watch again and again. Aug. 2 2011
Format:DVD
This Mummy Collection gives us two movies that are worth watching over and over. We had these movies in VHS, then when we went to a DVD player and lost the VCR we lasted about 5 months before we just HAD to buy the DVD so we can watch these movies whenever we want. The acting is supberb, the sets are wonderful and the stories are nicely involved and you can pick up something new in the movies every time you watch. We love them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure is Reborn April 9 2004
Format:DVD
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and fabulous April 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

Okay, lot of comments on this movie from others. Let me just say that one of the things I'll give them credit for is taking a lot of chances with stuff in this movie, many of which succeed, and some fail. Yes, I agree some of the special effects are downright distracting. I really dis-liked the hot-rodded air balloon. But, weigh those annoyances against the absolutely awesome dueling scene between the two woman in ancient Egypt. Buy the DVD just to watch that scene over and over. Nice to have some talented action females, not just poseurs (Charlies Angels, ugh). Also, there is some really decent non-action stuff going on - a kid actor that does a nice job, especially interacting with his captors. Lots of positives with this flic, so don't let some glaring special effect errors ruin having a good time.

1.0 out of 5 stars The movies are wonderful, this package [is weak]. Sept. 6 2003
Format:DVD
I LOVE the Mummy movies, but buy the movies separately and buy "The Mummy Ultimate Edition" instead. This set only comes with the Collector's Series of the first one, so you miss out on all the great special features of the Ultimate Edition. The Mummy Returns does not have an Ultimate Edition, so that doesn't matter. But I would definitely pass this up in order to have the Ultimate Edition of the first Mummy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Because More Movies Need Librarian Heroines Aug. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
And that is the biggest reason to buy this movie! :)
The main reason this is one of my favorite movies is that my fiance and I ARE Rick and Evelyn. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that I'm stingy with stars-- it's not like this is the greatest movie ever made or anything. It's just a WHOLE LOT OF FUN, and the only chance most moviegoers get to see how tough librarians can be!
