Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo, Patricia Velásquez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
Rick and Evelyn (Fraser and Weisz) return, now married with a son, as does her brother, Jonathan (Hannah), and the mummy. The plot hurdles along, involving the villainous mummy’s attempt to bring back The Scorpion King in order to slay him, and gain control of his army. Typical sequel in which the filmmakers pile on more action and more special effects. Of course, less is often more, as is the case here, still, a very entertaining action adventure, striking the right tone for the picture. The special effects are badly dated, but somehow still thrilling at times.
