Deep in the Egyptian desert, a handful of people searching for a long-lost treasure have just unearthed a 3,000 year old legacy of terror. Combining the thrills of a rousing adventure with the suspense of Universal's legendary 1932 horror classic, The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser, is a true nonstop action epic, filled with dazzling visual effects, top-notch talent and superb storytelling.
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 BrownSee all Product description

This version comes with a single disc. The DVD menu is simple enough to navigate. I haven't watched the special features yet, but I see that there is a director's commentary which is always nice to see. Personally, I wasn't terribly invested in the special features.
One issue I have with the dvd is this: their is a digital copy available for download on your computer. Normally, I am used to DVDs that provide an extra disc for the digital copy but, here everything is on one disc. Now this wouldn't be a problem except that it makes it a bit counter-intuitive to figure out how to even get your digital copy. First, you have to actually open up the folder of the DVD contents in order to find a ReadMe.txt that will give you instructions on how to install the digital copy. Then, of course, it turns out that the digital copy is actually not compatible with 64-bit windows systems (Windows 7, Windows 8, sometimes Vista or XP). There's also an expiry date on the digital copy set for the end of this year but it doesn't matter since it's not compatible with my computer anyways.
As an extra result, none of the other DVD-ROM features are compatible with my computer either.
I was also a little annoyed that there was a sticker on the front of the slip cover whose adhesive was not easily removable. It left a bunch of residue on the cover but I was able to remove that by dabbing at it with painter's tape. (If you're wondering, the sticker indicated that there is a French audio option).
For those interested, you can get audio in both English and French but captions are only in English. For some reason I couldn't just switch the audio with my remote, but in the Main Menu there's a languages option if you wish to do so.
Anyway, none of these are really deciding factors for me personally but I thought I'd mention them in case someone was particularly interested in a digital copy or something.
