If you're expecting bandaged-wrapped corpses and a lurching Boris Karloff-type villain, then you've come to the wrong movie. But if outrageous effects, a hunky hero, and some hearty laughs are what you're looking for, the 1999 version of The Mummy is spectacularly good fun. Yes, the critics called it "hokey," "cheesy," and "pallid." Well, the critics are unjust. Granted, the plot tends to stray, the acting is a bit of a stretch, and the characters occasionally slip into cliché, but who cares? When that action gets going, hold tight--those two hours just fly by.

The premise of the movie isn't that far off from the original. Egyptologist and general mess Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) discovers a map to the lost city of Hamunaptra, and so she hires rogue Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) to lead her there. Once there, Evelyn accidentally unlocks the tomb of Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), a man who had been buried alive a couple of millennia ago with flesh-eating bugs as punishment for sleeping with the pharaoh's girlfriend. The ancient mummy is revived, and he is determined to bring his old love back to life, which of course means much mayhem (including the unleashing of the 10 plagues) and human sacrifice. Despite the rather gory premise, this movie is fairly tame in terms of violence; most of the magic and surprise come from the special effects, which are glorious to watch, although Imhotep, before being fully reconstituted, is, as one explorer puts it, rather "juicy." Keep in mind this film is as much comedy as it is adventure--those looking for a straightforward horror pic will be disappointed. But for those who want good old-fashioned eye-candy kind of fun, The Mummy ranks as one of choicest flicks of 1999. --Jenny Brown

4.0 out of 5 stars A wild and entertaining romp in the desert May 5 2004
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
1999's The Mummy is the equivalent of a B movie produced on an epic scale. It's only real aim is to entertain, and it certainly does that. The campy nature of the dialogue works because the filmmakers have no shame: what, you say we've already used up our quota of clichés and really cheesy jokes? Well, find more of them. And get me some stereotypical Egyptians - we're not making this movie without some stereotypical Egyptian comic relief. If you're going to go, go for broke, I always say. The special effects also make things interesting. Some of them are quite good, but every so often you will see something that just looks rather silly - but that's okay. Hey, they already dropped a ton of money on special effects; you can't expect everything to be perfect. Those of us fascinated by ancient Egypt pretty much will ourselves to be drawn into the story: after all, this thing starts out as a mission to find the legendary city of Hamunaptra, aka the City of the Dead, complete with nifty little codices, hieroglyphics, and ancient books. Then of course you have the mummy; this guy is not content to just sneak around and say Boo in an effort to frighten everyone he meets; no, good old Imhotep has the plagues of Egypt as his calling card, and he possesses supernatural powers that make him all but invulnerable.
I know this story raises questions in the mind of the viewer. Take, for example, the whole curse thing inflicted upon Imhotep. I have to admit he had it coming; messing around with the Pharaoh's mistress, even when she is as attractive as Anck Su Namun, is a bad idea; murdering the pharaoh himself probably crosses the line into the land of major boo-boo. What do you do to a high priest who has committed such sins?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mummy May 3 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Before there was ''The Scorpion King'', or ''The Mummy Returns'', there was the Mummy.
The Mummy by Universal Pictures, is probably the best remake of an original horror film I have seen. It's not just a remake, but it's a completely new story that is scary, entertaining, fun and suspenseful. Now this great movie has been released on a DVD and it comes with a couple of nice features and presents this film in great form.
The movie stars Brendan Frasier as a French soldier fighting in the Middle East who is captured and about to be executed by enemy forces.
Rachel Weis plays Evelyn Carnahan, an archelogist who accidently saves Frasier from
execution. Evelyn loves studying and learning about Mummy Tombs, pharoas and Egyptian people. Eventually Evelyn learns of a special book called the Book of The Dead, which is all about mummies, resurrection andthe afterlife.
Evelyn and a group of other explorers,start digging into the tomb and treasures
of Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), an evil and vicious king who is killed with his
mistress in Hamunaptra, the city of the Dead.
Basically this guy and his mistress committed violent crimes and eventually got the
same punishment they inflicted on their victims. Evelyn and the other nieve explorers, eventually resurrect the dead king which leads to a chain reaction of violence, death, and imminent death to anyone who comes
into his path.
The King/Mummy isn't at full strength, and so uses his magical and deadly powers, starts absorbing his victims, until he gets full power. Once he gets full power, the Mummy not only plans to resurrect his evil mistress but plans to conquer everthing in it's path.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!!!! April 2 2004
By Litwolf
Format:DVD
This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time! It has everything you love in a movie: comdey, romance, action, adventure, special effects, hot guys (Brendan Fraser *faints*), and people with a British accent!
Summary: When Evy and her brother, Johnathan, discover the key to an ancient city, they enlist the help of a man who has actually been there, Rick. When they finally reach their destination, they accidently release a deadly mummy who was supposed to sleep forever. With only one goal in mind (to revive his dead love), the mummy will kill anyone who get in his way. Evy, Rick, and Johnathan must find a way to destory him before he kills everyone.
I loved the comedy in this movie. My favorite lines were:
Beni: Hey, O'Connell! It looks to me like I've got all the horses!
Rick: Hey, Beni! Looks to me like you're on the wrong side of the river!
Rick: *standing on a burning boat with Evy* Can you swim?
Evy: Well of course I can swim if the occasion calls for it!
Rick: Trust me! *picks up Evy* It calls for it! *throws her overboard*
I first saw this movie when I was about ten or so, and it scared me a lot! But, if you see it again when your older, thats much better. Full of laughs, fun, and adventure, this is a great movie to have!

The Mummy is maximum adventure, a rollercoaster ride of non-stop action, cliffhanger thrills, and crowdpleasing humor. Writer/director Stephen Sommers' homage of Saturday Matinee serials and past horror films is every bit as fun as the Indiana Jones movies, and even surpasses them when it comes to frenetic pacing. Not since The Last Crusade have I seen an adventure movie so enjoyable and immensely likeable.
To keep the film from ever getting boring, Sommers wisely delivers a wide variety of action sequences. There are massive gun battles (the opening is spectacular), chases (on foot, car, and even airplane), and swordfights. So much of it is so thrilling, it's hard to decide which action scene is the best (perhaps the opening gun battle or the sandstorm or the climactic sword battle against the mummies). The special effects are outstanding and Arnold Vosloo as the mummy Imhotep makes for a genuinely imposing villain.
Most importantly, though, the characters are likeable and a lot of fun. Brendan Fraser makes for a dashing action hero, Rachel Weisz is an appealing heroine, and John Hanna is hilarious as Weisz's inept brother. With characters worth caring for, the movie even builds up palpable suspense and excitement, all the way to the very end. Too bad the sequel wasn't nearly as fun.

Yep, this is one of those other misnamed films like the "Godzilla" (1998), which could have been called "Lissardus" has no relationship to "Godzilla, King of the Monsters". Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Remake.
The Mummy is full of action and adventure as well as good acting. Usually I find when films are shot in the desert the plot gets old and boring (ex. Hidalgo) but not this film. Read more
