An English librarian called Evelyn Carnahan becomes interested in starting an archaeological dig at the ancient city of Hamunaptra. She gains the help of Rick O'Connell, after saving him from his death. What Evelyn, her brother Jonathan and Rick are unaware of is that another group of explorers are interested in the same dig. Unfortunately for everyone, this group ends up unleashing a curse which been laid on the dead High Priest Imhotep. Now 'The Mummy' is awake and it's going to take a lot more than guns to send him back from where he came from. Written by

The heroes use the star "key" to open three locks: Jonathan opens the sarcophagus by turning the key counterclockwise, and Evelyn turns it clockwise to open the Book of the Dead and the Book of Amon Ra. Although this inconsistency may seem strange, apparently that's how the locks work. It may also seem strange that the characters always turn the key the right way on the first try, even though they're not familiar with the locks. However, a closer look reveals that they do try to turn the key the wrong way, and after realizing that it doesn't work, change the direction. This is especially evident in the second case. Besides, there is always a 50 percent chance of guessing the right way on the first try. See more »

The title speaks for itself.This is arguably the greatest mummy movie ever made(well next to The Mummy Returns).You ask why is this the best one?Its the best one because it has a great story,good acting,beautiful sites at how it really was in acient egypt and some of the greatest visual effects ever seen by the human eye!Everything in The Mummy is fantastic!
Vosloo,Frasier,and Weisz and Fehr are very good in it.Lots of familiar faces are in this one too.
Listen to the music,buy the score,its by Jerry Goldsmith!
Oh,by the way,The Mummy Returns is coming out in a few days,the soundtrack is composed by Alan Silvestri(don`t worry,he did a terriffic job) is available now!Buy it,it is the most impressive music you will ever hear!
