Better than I remember !!

Pros:Everything about it.

Cons:None really.

The Bottom Line: A well done movie that I feel people of most ages groups should enjoy.


Being pretty much ten years old I had not seen the first of the mummy movies for a while, and I had forgotten how good it was. Yes it is a little chessy in places, but all in all it is a pretty good movie. It in my opinion is scary in places if you beleive in people being brought back from the dead, and I can understand why some Egyption people would find some of its history scary. I know I wouldn't want the life sucked out of my by some guy who was brought back from the dead.

Brendon Frasier was appropriatly cast as Rick O'Connell, and obviously acts more than well enough to give him 2 sequals to this the first of three, and of which the scorpian king movies (of which there are two) are stemed from.

I liked Rachel Weisz as Evelyn, and she portrayed a youngish English lady wanting adventure very well. John Hannah plays her brother Johnathan well also as the kind of cowardly lion form the wizard of oz. He is a little braver than he really thinks he ofcourse has an eye for shiny things that are worth money that is played on in pretty much all three movies espchily the first and second.

There is lots of action, and for younger people it will give them some suspense. But for us older people a lot of the movie is predictable such as Rick, and Evelyn's falling in love. Although in saying that the movie still give us a lot of fun. Beni the squrimy, creepy guy who befriends the movies bad guy Imhotep so he can gain from working for him kept me waiting for him to be killed as he was really that annoyingly selfish, and nasty to everyone who entered his life.

I watched this last ngiht for the first time in about three years, and glad I did as I had forgotten so much of the movie. Like how Evelyn, Johnathan, and Rick met just before Rick is going to be hanged. A little wierd way of meeting, but thier meeting saved Rick from death.

I have seen every single movie that the Mummy/the scorpion king franchise have brought out. The first is by far the best in my book, even though I like Jet Li, and Michelle Yeoh who feature in the third Mummy movie. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed after watching this, and I may even watch it again tonight it is that good.

It does have its similarities to the Indiana Jones movies, but I don't really care as I find this is all together a much better all round movie. The special effects are very good, and who ever did the effects should be pretty proud of themselves.

I am very happy to have seen this movie again after a few years of not watching it, and recently seeing the third of the three Mummy movies I am glad to say the first was by far ther better of the three. In saying that though both the second and the third are good, so I would suggest you watch them to.
