In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to the 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
Evy and Rick's conversation in the tomb regarding what happened the last time Evy disregarded an ancient "Do Not Disturb" sign. The columns crashing into each other in the catacombs calls back to the shelves in Evy's library falling in a similar fashion in The Mummy. After briefly wondering how she was able to pull off an expert combat move (ultimately due to her past life as an Egyptian princess,) Evy slugs a mook with a headbutt and says to Alex, "That, I learned from your father." It calls back to Rick teaching Evy how to throw a punch in the first film. And this gets its own Call-Back later when Evy uses the same move against Anck-su-Namun See more »
The dirigible is equipped with a period brass carbon tetrachloride fire extinguisher, yet when Izzy Buttons is trying to put the fires out after Imhotep causes it to crash, he is clearly using a modern dry chemical extinguisher (resprayed so as not to be obviously modern) - this extinguisher was not invented for over 30 years after the film was set. In fact, the model used dates to 50+ years after the film is set. See more »

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 »
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.
