The year’s biggest action-adventure is coming home… with a vengeance! Brendan Fraser and an all-star cast reunite with Stephen Sommers for explosive, non-stop thrills in “the ultimate rollercoaster movie ride!” (Seattle Post Intelligencer) An ancient legacy of terror is unleashed when the accursed mummy, Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), is resurrected – along with a force even more powerful: The Scorpion King (The Rock). Now, as the fate of all mankind hangs in the balance, Rick O’Connell (Fraser) and his wife Evie (Rachel Weisz) embark on a daring, desperate race to save their son – and the world – from unspeakable evil. Supercharged with pulse-pounding action and spectacular special effects that’ll blow you away, The Mummy Returns is “the best adventure movie of the year!” (MTV Radio)

Critics Consensus: In The Mummy Returns, the special effects are impressive, but the characters seem secondary to the computer generated imagery.

A piss-poor mummy movie indeed that doesn't deliver a damn thing worth preserving.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Mummy Returns is the 2001 sequel to the 1999 movie The Mummy. There is frequent battle violence -- fights with swords, bows and arrows, thrown knives, kicks and punches. A woman stabs herself to death with a sword. Frequent demonic imagery: demon dogs, small skeleton demons shoot arrows, scorpions bite soldiers to death, and kill one by eating him from within before exploding out of his skin. A boy of about 10 says "goddamn" and "ass." After being taken prisoner, he uses an extremely filthy train rest room in which the walls are covered in hand-smeared excrement.
