superbBy williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 01 May 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]this sequel film to 'The Mummy' is superb. The story is set in 1933, approximately 10 years after the events of the first film.
Rick O'Connell is now married to Evelyn, and the couple have settled in London,where they are raising their 8-year-old son Alex. The Benbridge Scholars who in the first film had no time for Evie, now want her to run the London British Museum of Antiquities.
When a chain of events, finds the resurrected corpse of Imhotep, by a mysterious woman called Meela, who is armed with the knowledge of centuries, in the British Museum, the mummy Imhotep walks the earth once more, determined to fulfill his quest for immortality.
But another force has also been set loose in the world. one born of the darkest rituals, of ancient Egyptian mysticism, and even more powerful than Imhotep.
Imhotep and Meela have one goal: to defeat the scorpion king played by The Rock, and use his army to destroy mankind.
During the Egyptian New Year, Evie begins having dreams about ancient Egypt, which lead her straight to the Bracelet of Anubis.
Meela's henchmen come for the bracelet, but Ardeth Bey reappears as well, and joins the O'Connell's and Jonathan, in the battle ahead.
Ardeth explains about the legend, the mythos, and the problem of the scorpion king.
Alex puts on the bracelet, and is kidnapped by Imhotep's henchmen.
Now it becomes a race against time, to get to the oasis of Ahm Shere, because when these two evil forces clash, the fate of the world will hang in the balance, sending the O'Connells on a desperate race to save the world from unspeakable evil, and to rescue their son before it is too late.
well worth watching.

Bit ConfusedBy a customer , 02 Jun 2013One of the best films but have read that reincarnation is when after you die your soul goes into another living body, so should have had different actress's for the before and after death for Evie's and the mummy's love. I might be wrong let us know but one of the best franchises ever

8 out of 10By a customer , 17 Jan 2012This movie was not bad, there is plenty of action.
I am glad that they keeped all the same cast from the first film ( which i think was much better ).
I hope that the next one is better than this one though.
Rollicking good funBy a customer , 01 Jan 2012Despite having watched the third in the trilogy after the first and before this one, this still a cracking yarn. As indicated in other reviews, this is Indiana Jones with knobs on.
The scenes are great, the interaction between the characters light-hearted and plausible, there is comic interest in the John Hannah and the son's character and Rachel Weisz is as gorgeous as ever. (As an aside, it is a pity that she wasn't able to do the third instalment but the actress picked for that one (Maria Bello) is equally as good and continues the part of to a 'T')
