Storyline

Many years ago, in Ancient Egypt, the Scorpion King led a menacing army, but when he sold his soul to Anubis, he was erased from history. Now he is only a myth...or is he? Rick and Evelyn O'Connell is still discovering new artifacts, along with their 8 year old son Alex. They discover the Bracelet of Anubis. But someone else is after the bracelet. High Priest Imhotep has been brought back from the dead once again and wants the bracelet, to control the Scorpian King's army. That's not the only problem. Imhotep now has Alex and with the bracelet attached to him, doesn't have long to live. Written by Film_Fan

The pygmy mummies, as explained in the novel of the film, were said to be brought back to Thebes in ancient times by pharaohs as ill-tempered jesters. See more »

Goofs

When Imothep's followers are bringing Evy into the ritual area, before she is set down you can see her turn her head to the right in the long shot. Immediately afterward there's a close-up of her being set down and her head's turned to the left. After she sits up, all close-ups show her sitting up. But when we see the table she's on from Rick and Ardeth's point of view from a balcony, sometimes she's laying down flat and other times the table appears empty. See more »

Quotes

Jonathan: Pull me up. Pull me up.
[he sees the huge diamond on top of the pyramid]
Jonathan: Wait, wait. Let me down. Let me down.
Rick: It's not worth your life, you idiot.
Jonathan: Yes, it is. Yes, it is.

Crazy Credits

The end credits feature objects in the background such as embalming cloth and walls with hieroglyphics. Some of the backgrounds relate to the character. When Arnold Vosloo's and Patricia Velasquez's credits appear, a mummy is seen in the background. When The Rock's credit appears, a scorpion crawls in the background. When John Hannah's credits appear, gold statues can be seen in the background (for his obsession of all things gold). See more »

A good Sequel
25 January 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Rick and Evelyn now married with a son, find themselves amidst the second coming of Imhotep. After their Son Alex is kidnapped by Imhotep as he seeks the Scorpion King (The Rock) Rick and Evelyn must pursue their sons capture, with the aid of the clues Alex leaves along the way.

Aside from some unusual revelations in Evelyn and Ricks past, the movie concentrates mainly on the action this time out and runs a little short on story.

I Liked the evolution of Evey's character, now she's hardened up she makes a mean adversary, and takes part in some good battles.

All in all, i enjoyed the experience and once again the Visuals were more than adequate.

If you enjoyed the first, then watch this one, its good fun and has some fine moments.

7/10
