This collection is basically just the three individual Bluray Mummy movies shoved into a slipcase. And therein lies the problem for me. As The Mummy trilogy like Aliens is one of those movie collections where the first couple of movies were great and then the rest just slid into well......, not so great!
If you haven't seen The Mummy, then you're in for a wonderful ride as Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz just do a suberb job. It starts out strong and just keeps getting stronger. A perfect action interspersed with comedy movie! It reminded me a lot of the first time I saw Raider's of the Lost Ark. It's that type of movie!
Then came the sequel, The Mummy Returns. And surprise, surprise. It was one of those sadly very rare Hollywood occasions where the sequel actually lived up to the original. Once again, highly recommended!
And then came the third. Different girl, different continent, poorer storyline and great sadness. The kids will probably love it but for hard-core Mummy fans it was like the third Alien movie, a big big disappointment!
If you haven't seen the first two Mummy movies and you like action/comedy movies like Raider's of the Lost Ark; then I highly recommend this. But I suggest you check out the price of the first two individual movies first and only buy the collection if it's cheaper or near the same price. In which case you could do what I did, keep the first two, throw away the slipcase and give away the third! Unless of course, you're one of those folks who actually like the third movie, in which case my sincere apologies!
So overall, my rating for the collection is based on the first movie which is definitely 5 stars, the second around 4 stars and the last 2 stars.
