At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
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

When Evie is revealed to be Nefertiti reincarnated, viewers point out that Imhotep mistook her for Anck-su-Namun in the original movie, so why the mistake? It turns out Imhotep took the eyes of Mr. Burns, who was virtually blind without his glasses, thus he inherited Burns' blindness. However, the scene was deleted when director Stephen Sommers realized Imhotep would have to go through the entire movie as nearly blind. Instead, he let the plot revolve around him mistaking Evie for his true love. 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 »
When Rick leaves to get Evie out of the museum, he tells Jonathan and Alex to stay put in the car. When he leaves, he says, "Watch over him." Jonathan replies that he would, but in some other versions, Rick extends the scene by saying to Jonathan, "I wasn't talking to you." 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.
