Product Description

Fraser/Weisz/Hannah/Vosloo/Feh ~ Mummy Returns

Special Features

Fans of the special edition of the original Mummy will find just as satisfying a treasure room in this sequel DVD. Director Stephen Sommers and executive producer-editor Bob Ducsay are back with an animated play-by-play commentary, complementing the movie with technical tidbits and entertaining production stories. The "Spotlight on Location" featurette is the usual promotional puff piece, but the Visual and Special Effects Formation galleries dig deep into four key effects scenes (including the pygmy mummy attack), each broken down into four stages of development and illustrated with work-in-progress footage, raw animation, and production sketches. In addition to the historical factoids, production notes, games, and promotions for The Scorpion King is a five-minute collection of outtakes cleverly cut together like a mock movie trailer. --Sean Axmaker

3.0 out of 5 stars All I'm saying is... May 24 2004
Format:DVD
...this could have been much better. Three years after the fact, I know many of us are in agreement that this sequel did not live up to the original, so instead of just bashing it, I thought I'd do a take on what NOT to do with a sequel:
1.) Do not sacrifice plot for action. After so many sequels that bombed because of this, the producers still fell for it anyway. Do you know what made "The Mummy" so awesome? The lure of all the ancient Egyptian lore and myth, which, when interspersed with action, brought the entire movie alive. We don't need more brawls and swordfights and self-consuming cities--we need more of the MAGIC.
2.) Don't reference the original more than twice. It's not as if we don't remember the books and the plagues and the happy romance. If anything, constant reflections insult us as an audience. It's another bad trap that sequel-makers fall into, and again, it happened here too.
3.) Don't wreck the memory of a beloved setting. Hamunaptra was chock-full of all that we as Americans want from ancient Egypt: vast treasures, sarcophogi, curses, booby traps, juicy mummies. And what did we see of it in the second film? Sand, teeming with people who couldn't even find it eight years before. Huge electric lights illuminating what once could only be seen by torchlight. Trucks, instead of camels! And some really strangely reincarnated Anck-su-namun. The moviemakers effectively ruined the magic of Hamunaptra, and they didn't have to. Shame!
4.) Never, ever, ever pull a stunt like a CGI Rock again. Could they not afford to pay him for the final scenes? Just imagine the heroic fight between Rick, Imhotep, and the Scorpion King--only all three are in the flesh! People would have been cheering in the theatre watching the Rock fight with Brendan Fraser and Arnold Vosloo.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hit Sequel - But the First was Still Better! April 3 2004
By Litwolf
Format:DVD
The mummy is back! So is the original cast from the first hit movie! Many movies have terrible sequels, but that does not apply to this movie!
Summary: Years after Imhotep has been destroyed, Evy and Rick have settled down, married, and had a son, Alex. However, the whole family still loves to go to digs. After coming back from a succsesful trip, where they found a bracklet that was supposed to be just a legend, Alex accidently locks the find onto his wrist and is shown the way to a mythical oasis. A strange group, led by a woman who knows where Imhotep lays, digs up the high priest and kidnaps the young O'Connell. Now Evy, Rick, and their old friends must race against time to rescue Alex before Imhotep uses the braclet to unlock an acnient army.
Sill just as funny as the first:
Evy: No harm ever came from opening a chest
Rick: Yeah, no harm ever came from reading a book either. Remember how that one went?
Rick: Where the hell is Jonathon?
(Jonathon drives up in a 2-story bus)
Rick: What's the matter with my car?
Jonathan: I was forced to choose another means of transportation.
Rick: A double-decker bus!
Jonathan: It was his idea! (points to Alex)
Alex: Was not!
Jonathan: Was too!
Alex: Was not!
Jonathan: Was too!
Rick: Just go!
Still not as good as the first, but I loved the flashback scenes. The ending will surprise you very much! Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this movie, but... Feb. 18 2004
Format:DVD
I confess that I love (and own) "The Mummy." While it is an action movie, I enjoyed the setting and the story, and having Brendan Fraser as the main star doesn't hurt. That being said, I really wanted to like the sequel, and found it painful.
Rick and Evie have married and have somehow become nauseating. I found myself actually cheering for the bad guys when they were trying to kill Evie. The shy librarian yearning for adventure was completely gone--perhaps he actually married her twin sister.
The plot had numerous flaws, which only a serious action-flick lover could overlook. First, if the mummy was defeated in the first movie by being made into a mortal, how was he able to be brought back as the same creature? How was Rick raised in an orphanage in Egypt but is an American complete with accent? If Evie was the reincarnation of an Egyptian princess, why didn't she have the same visions in the first movie?
If you can suspend belief & watch for special effects, you will probably enjoy this movie. If you are like me and cannot overlook plot gaps & impossibilities, you will probably be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair followup to spectacular first story Feb. 9 2004
By Michael
Format:DVD
The Amazon.com Editorial is correct. The special effects and grandeur of the film leave little time for character development. While the film is visually amazing to watch, I felt betrayed that the beloved characters of the first film where given so little time to show us even more about them and their personalities. Its fast-paced, but when you think it should slow down and show us a little more about the characters and their interactions, we are off again to the next segment.
The fight scene between Nefertieri and Anuck-su-namem as seen in a flashback by their modern day selves is awesome. That whole scene helps bring the plot line together, but it comes too late and is too short. We are still left with questions.
All in all, the performances are fair when compared to the previous film. Rachel Weisz is amazing, but doesnt deliver the same energetic performance as in the original, save for a few scenes. Brendan Fraser is also toned down a bit too much in this follow up. Maybe it was on purpose to show the passage of time and age, but I think the spark of the original dimmed a bit.

Such trash the movie studios insult us with. The Cringometer peaked over the red line from the opener and climaxed with some of the worst CG ever. The Rock- more like The Crock! Read more
