The Mummy Returns - REVIEW

Film of the Day #148/ 300

The success of The Mummy in 1999 surprised everyone, and on the day that it opened, Universal Studios greenlit a sequel. The Mummy Returns does more or less the same thing; Stephen Sommers big-budget follow-up continues eight years after the events of the original and retains its predecessor’s breezy retro spirit. However, The Mummy Returns learns from the past and produces a film that is bigger, better and more tightly wound than the original. The Mummy Returns is a delightful romp, overflowing with wild action sequences and stunning special effects.
