In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
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 are 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 Scorpion 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
In The Mummy, Imhotep calls Evelyn Anck-Su-Namun. But in The Mummy Returns, we learn that Evelyn is Nefertiti reincarnated. The first movie was a retelling of the story from Boris Karloff's The Mummy, in which the resurrected priest Imhotep believes the girlfriend of the hero is the reincarnation of his lost princess. Apparently, the makers of The Mummy didn't anticipate its tremendous success and had to plan a sequel quickly, and the writers overlooked that aspect of the plot when preparing The Mummy Returns (note that the name of the villain in Karloff's version is spelled "Ardath Bey", and the hero in Fraser's version is spelled "Ardeth Bay" to help separate the two).

There are no opening credits at all, save the Universal logo, so the title of the film, "The Mummy Returns" does not appear until well into the end credits. See more »
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!
