It has one of the laughably worse cg effects ever, but does The Mummy Returns entertain on the same level as the first one? Nostalgia Critic looks at the laughable insanity.

    • 15:46 So this device on the boy's arm is the key to succeeding in the goal of the movie/plot and if he doesnt do something soon, it will explode. I know this movie came out in 2001, but this feels like some Ben 10 stuff but instead of aliens and kid centered, it's mummies and basic stuff

  • This movie is pretty dumb, but I think that actually works in its favor. If you're after a good action movie, a good horror movie, a good comedy, or a good romance, you won't find it here. If you're looking for dumb b-movie cheese about on par with Freddy Vs Jason, Batman and Robin, Independence Day, Ice Pirates, or pretty much any given Tremors movie, this is exactly that. It's a great movie for when you've had a mentally exhausting day and just want to completely turn your brain off. Plus the soundtrack is actually really good.

  • honestly i enjoyed the sequel, even if it was a bit too outlandish, my only real gripe was that CGI Scorpion King, they could've just had The Rock fight them both and it would've been a fantastic battle. edit: scratch my only gripe, i now see what your problem is with it, it's like they felt the first movie was enough for you to know the main characters and they didnt even feel like we needed to know the new ones.

  • Yeah. They were not sisters, in the movie it clearly states that Evie was the Pharaoh's daughter and the other was the Pharaoh's wife/mistress(plus Imotep's Lover). I don't know why Doug is saying that they were sisters. But people make mistakes.

  • Unlike The Mummy review, where I disagreed at points vehemently but I'm not a child so I disagreed amiably, I completely agree with this review. I saw this movie in theaters opening weekend and even as a dumb 14 year old, I KNEW this movie sucked. It just didn't have the spirit, commitment or charm the first Sommers The Mummy film had. I mean... The Mummy wasn't high art- I don't care about that anyways, because I watch movies to be entertained, not to get some deeper meaning out of them- but it was a fun pre-9/11 "every goddamn big-budget film is now a stupid superhero shitshow" romp and I enjoyed it for what it was, a big dumb action film. This? Yeah no, it was absolutely terrible.

  • i just realized. They kept the romance between the two main chars but in doing so the kid became superfluous. (i know it's obvious but bare with me a sec) I think that if you take away the kid (so they're still childless. You know, maybe it's for waiting, maybe it's because it didnt happen yet, etc etc) then it works not only ok but better because the kid seems to offer a "free kidnapping card" and thats' it. (the train scene was funny tho) So you still have the drama/romance between the two without having a "oh yeah, we're parents" in the way of the mood and having the kid being a constant third wheel (and not in a "oh, kids kill the mood for parents when they wanna get frisky" way but in a "this is awkward, maybe i shouldve stayed home instead of joining a couple's date" way)

  • First render of a bad video game with a couple classic-ish moments (I confess I actually do really like that fight scene between the ladies in the past, I thought the choreography was pretty cool, even if it is purely for the purpose of having two hot chicks fight)

  • Actually. The first thing Evelyn said in this movie is "go away", which was towards a snake that was passing by. This was to show how much she's changed since the first movie. She went from a bookworm who needs to be saved to a fighter trying to protect her son. Yes she still got kidnapped in this movie, but she went down fighting in the process.
