Hi hot cute girly (and boy) geeks of mine. Here is my opinion on the Mummy returns, part 2 of the mummy trilogy, enjoy.
It’s nine years later when we meet up with Evy and Rick, they are married and have a kid, a most obnoxious little brat called Alex. The family now lives in London but Evy and Rick still like to dig for old stuff in Egypt. After some strange dreams Rick and Alex follow Evy back to Egypt where they find the scorpion bracelet. According to legend, ones every 5000 years, the scorpion king can be summoned along with the army of the god Anubis to rule the world. And the bracelet leads the way where to find the scorpion king in a legendary place called Ahm Shere.
Of course there are bad guys, who want to bring back Imhotep so he can defeat the scorpion king and gain control over the army of Anubis, to try and take over the world (what are we doing to night Brain, same as we do every night Pinky, we try to take over the world). The bad guys are lead by Meela Nais (played by Patricia Velasquez) who is, in body, the reincarnation of Anck Su Namun. And they succeed in bringing back Imhotep and getting him also back in the flesh, while killing some of their minions.
Well, the little brat Alex tries on the bracelet which was found by Evy, who turns out also to be a reincarnation from princess Nefertiti, and of course shuts on his arm and won’t come off. The bad guys find out and kidnap him. And a wild race commence. The bad guys leading the way with Alex and the bracelet and Imhotep. Followed by Evy, Rick, Evy’s brother Jonathan and of course our old friend Ardeth Bay, who still looks hot.
Alex leaves clues around for his family where to follow him and Imhotep is putting his sweeties soul into Meela’s body, so she is truly Anck Su Namun’s reincarnation.
We also get a really weird scene where, when they are almost at the golden pyramid of Ahm Shere and they have to go true the jungle everybody is hunted down by cannibalistic mummified pygmies. Why? Hell if I know, they look funny but add nothing to the story what so ever.
Needles to say, they find the scorpion king, defeat him and Imhotep, drag his soul back to oblivion, bring back Evy from the death and go home with a kick-ass huge diamond, the end.
Although the story is fun and entertaining, Brendan Fraser funny as hell, some of the men very cute to look at, it’s not so great as the first one. I like the whole reincarnation sideline. But the kid Alex is annoying, I wanna dump him in the Nile and leave him there. The pygmies add nothing to the story and the CGI on the scorpion king is sooooo bad! Why can’t they just use the real upper body of Dwayne Johnson aka the Rock and CGI some scorpion body parts on him instead of a complete CGI scorpion beastie. CGI people do not look great and I hate them.
I for one will rate this movie with a 6.5 out of 10. Still fun to watch but not necessarily a must see.
Love, your hot cute girly geek.
