The Mummy Returns Movie Review

The Mummy Returns Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The mummys return is packed full of slammin action and more sandy grit than you can shake a sword at. Check your brain at the door and get ready to rock with the undead in The Mummy Returns.

Getting killed twice can't keep a good mummy down, especially not Im-Ho-Tep. He's back again as a supernatural menace that's ready to tear down London and bring the world to an end. Sounds like bad news, huh? Don't worry, Rick O'Connell (played by Brendan Fraser) and his lovely wife Evi (played by Rachel Weisz) are back to save the day.

It's been 10 years since their last adventure and now the two of them have a kid, Alex (played by Freddie Boath.) Alex is a brainiac who knows more about Egypt than his parents. The family is back in Egypt following a series of mysterious dreams and visions about an ancient tomb. Before you know it they're up to their eyeballs in action as the ancient mummy Im-Ho-Tep is brought back to life.

The Mummy Returns has double-decker bus chases in the streets of London, zombie midgets, not one but two armies, monsters, legends, hot air balloons, The Rock and more sand than you can shake an ankh (an Egyptian cross) at. The action is totally intense, it stops just long enough for you to use the bathroom then it's back at full power.

The best parts about The Mummy Returns are the fight scenes. Lots of movies have awesome fight scenes but when you're watching all these high-flying kicks and leaping thirteen-spoons-of-doom moves you know that only hardcore freaks can do them. The action in The Mummy Returns is way less fancy. It's basic brawling, the kind of action that you don't need a black belt to pull off. It's fun to see a different, more realistic style.

As fun as it is there are a few gripes about the film. The first problem is The Rock. Can you smell what he's cooking? Nope, he doesn't have time to microwave a burrito never mind cook. He only shows up for about 10 minutes and doesn't have any lines. I'd do that for five million dollars any day, lets hope he has more lines in his next movie The Scorpion King. The second problem is that a lot of the effects are cheesy. Leave your brain at the door and you'll have more fun.

Bottom line: It's GREAT action and tons of fun with a few stupid moments. I'm gonna go see it again.

    Your Lie in April. I'm delaying it because a) I lost my ear devices and b) have heard that it has an extremely sad ending. XD
