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 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 Film_Fan

Trivia

In the technical commentaries for the deluxe edition of the film, it is mentioned that in the battle, 32,000 animated warriors were present. But according to other sources, 64,000 warriors were present in their second appearance in the film. If these statements are accurate, the total amount of warriors is brought to 96,000. A far cry from Ardeth Bey's (most likely hyperbole-laden) assertion that the army had as many members as the Sahara Desert had grains of sand, but still not a force to underestimate. See more »

Goofs

At 1:05:50 when Ihmotep shames Alex for attempting to escape, he performs the Tsk Tsk Tsk gesture. Tsk Tsk Tsk didn't start until the 1940s to shame the boy from running off and The Mummy movies are based in the 1920s, 1930s, and in the BCE era. Long before he would have known how to shame the boy politely. See more »

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 »

Alternate Versions

Early UK releases removed a headbutt during the Rachel Weisz/Patricia Velasquez fight scene, in order to qualify for a '12' rating. The 2008 DVD release is fully uncut. See more »

Loved this sequel! Amazing work by everybody
20 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

The Mummy Returns is a film that, I think, you need to see the first film of the saga because otherwise you don't understand some little details. That film is a film like Indiana Jones with the same plot and the same characters. But the kid is an exception. The cinema show us the kids like boys and girls insufferable, but Alex O'Conell is a boy that "pass more time in the museum that in house". One difference this film have respect Indiana Jone's films are the sobrenatural characters than appears like The Scorpión King or Imhotep. If you like Indiana Jones and Egyptian mithology, I recomend you that film
