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

Quotes

Evelyn: [Evie is trying to bribe Rick into checking out the Oasis of Ahm Shere] I think the bracelet is some sort of guide to the lost oasis of Ahm Shere.
Rick: Evy, I know what you're thinking and the answer is no. We just got home.
Evelyn: That's the beauty of it, we're already packed.
Rick: Why don't you just give me one good reason.
Evelyn: It's just an oasis. Darling. A beautiful, exciting, romantic oasis.
Rick: The kind with the white, sandy beach and the palm trees and the cool, clear, blue water and - we could have some of those...

Crazy Credits

At the end credits of the film, the main cast and crews' names are first presented in hieroglyphics, then change into Roman (English) fonts that have a hieroglyphic-like look to them. (The rest of the credits are also in this font). After the main cast and crew is named, the rest of the credits, instead of scrolling down in traditional straight lines, are staggered in snake-like patterns, while hieroglyphics are placed in various areas of the credits and on the screen.

AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!
29 September 2001 | by (AUSTRALIA) – See all my reviews

I liked the original, but I love this! A rollercoaster ride from start to finish, and a brilliant cameo performance by the most electrifying man in sporting entertainment, the brahma bull, the great one, the people's champion and my favorite sporting entertainer; THE ROCK! Stunts galore, thrills, spills, action, adventure, deception, romance, and the list goes on. To all of those who mock this film for being pointless or anything else, SHUT THE F#CK UP BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST AND PROBABLY THE ONLY POPCORN MOVIE AROUND THAT DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP 250! OK, so I may be going overboard there a little bit, but it's way better than any of Adam Sandler's sh!t! That'll be all about my favorite film, which deserves a supersonic 10!
