A Guilty Pleasure

As a person who grew up with the Brendan Fraser Mummy films I have a place in my heart for them. However this film is terrible. The CGI is horrifying, the acting is laughable, and the story is now great. But I still thing this film and the others are worth watching. Also on a side note I don't understand the hate for Brendan. Sure he isn't an amazing actor, but he's far from terrible. I haven't ever seen a film with him I disliked.

One of the better sequels

I had such anticipation when this was coming out and while I didn't see it in theaters, the fact that they showed the armies of dog-men made me interested. It continues the saga of the O'Connells (from the first movie) and brings back many of the original cast members. My reasons for liking this movie are as follows:

1) It has Oded Fehr, one of my favorite actors 2) It's about Egypt with action, adventure and humor 3) It's got Anubis, my favorite Egyptian god

I admit that it's not as good as the first one, but this is one of the better sequels out there. It's no Empire Strikes Back or Dark Knight, and it's no Oscar contender either, but it carried its weight well. It's a popcorn movie. Just relax and enjoy it without thinking.

The Mummy Sunks

It's sad to see what could have been an excellent sequel turned into just another stupid movie of stupid action. The bases for a great story are there, but it was very poorly delivered. The adorable heroes seem to have another personality, causing them to lose the chemistry between them from the first movie, much because of the script and the dialogues, especially Evelyn who in this film discovers - see the stupidity - to be the reincarnation of the princess "warrior" Nefertiri, which makes her a woman of guns instead of the charming half-snobbish girl of the first movie, the purpose of this so she can have some fight sequences with Anksunamun, the lover Imotep wants to resurrect.

What really irritates me is that in the end Anksunamun turns her back on Imotep by betraying him to death. Why?!? Does not make sense. Why would she have killed the Pharaoh and committed suicide for Imotep's sake now to turn her back on him? That was part of the charm of these villains: even though they were evil, they had this human spark - they loved each other. But I also have to admit that from the entire movie - from the WHOLE movie - that was the only scene that really messed with me so cruel it was. If they had to die then it should be together: she would try to save him but she would fail, both falling into the abyss with the souls pushing them away and taking them to the bottom as they try in vain to hold hands. Would not this end be more beautiful and even more tragic and appropriate?

Alex, the son, is funny in the role of "smart kid" but unnecessary to the plot, and the sequence in which he leaves the clues to his parents in plain sight for all to see is very badly thought so much in terms of writing as accomplishment. The whole film is exaggerated: the action is exaggerated (now the mummies run along walls and ceilings), comedy and goofiness and animation are exaggerated, too many special effects obviously unfinished that do not mix well at all with the rest of the background unlike the first movie. This is one of those cases where LESS would be MORE. And it makes me sad that the fantastic first movie does not have a better reputation because of these horrible sequels.
