Like The Mummy (1999) before it, The Mummy Returns is packed full of fun, exciting action and cool special effects.

Unlike the first movie, however, the plot of The Mummy Returns was more plausible.


Furthermore, no particular scene stood out as a significant plot hole.

With that being said, while the movie had its moments, there are many action movies I'd rather watch instead of it.

Interesting. The Scorpion King (2002) is a spin-off of The Mummy Returns and takes place 5000 years earlier.
He just steps on them.

Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo)
Ha. Is that meant to be like his mom's accident in the library?
Whoa, he caught the blade and threw it back.
What!?! I was just about to ask myself. Then: "Whoa, Mom, when did you learn to do that?" "I have no idea."

Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr)
That's funny that her brother was at their house. Cause at one point I wondered if he would be in the movie.
That's a strange exchange concerning his mark. It was also never fully explained why his son saw the same mark on the wall.

Anck-Su-Namun (Patricia Velasquez)
Reincarnation. And yet, only in body? What the heck. Especially since this girl knew where everything was.
"Honey, whatcha doin? These guys don't use doors." [A moment later they come crashing through the walls]

Mr. Hafez (Alun Armstrong)
What a ridiculous chase/fight. Great, but ridiculous.
Tower Bridge in London.
"You all right?" "This was... my first bus ride."
Lol, really? They were able to catch up with the chase?

The Scorpion King (The Rock)
"Scepter of Osiris"
Damn, tricked into opening the chest. "You wanted to open the chest, open the chest."
Hahahaha. The one eye.

Izzy (Shaun Parkes)
Oh wow, the pharaoh's daughter Nefertiri.
Holy shit. That's quite an army.
Hmm. Why is this wall coming from behind them?
Out of breath. "You know. It's not easy... being... a dad."


Haha. From the first film: Amenophus.
Lol. Gets the diamond.
"O'Connell, you almost got me killed!" "At least you didn't get shot."
