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.

not so muchBy whocares (40 reviews) from Birmingham , 14 Oct 2008liked the first one better still watchable
Really silly from the startBy Paul Shears from England , 19 Aug 2008This film has great special effects & nothing else.
The story line runs at maximum speed possible from the outset. It's clearly targetting young children & as such, the film makers turn up any old rubbish.

Returns? What a shame it didn't stay away!By aggie (47 reviews) from Cannock , 25 Jun 2008Oh my goodness what a dire film - a repeat of the effects, only without a story! Totally awful! I kept watching thinking,'something good will happen in a minute' and guess what! It didn't.
I couldn't figure out if it was a kids film (kids level dialogue and scenes0 or adults film (scary monster)
Sorry Brendan, you are cute, but even you didn't make this worth a watch!
