Loosely adapted from the classic 1932 horror film starring Boris Karloff, The Mummy is set in Egypt, where over 3,000 years ago the high priest Imhotep (played by Arnold Vosloo) was given the all-important assignment of preparing the recently dead for their journey into the afterlife. However, Imhotep made one terrible mistake - he became smitten with Anck-Su-Namun, the mistress of the Pharaoh himself. Driven mad by jealousy and love, Imhotep murdered the Pharaoh, and his punishment was to be buried alive and suffer the torment of an eternal life in his wretched tomb. In 1925, a band of adventurers seeking fame and fortune - led by Rick O'Connel (Brendan Fraser), an American expatriate who has joined the foreign legion, and Evelyn Carnarvon (Rachel Weisz), an amateur archeologist - find a previously unknown burial site in Egypt. The team starts to dig, hoping to find lost riches, but instead they disturb the tomb of Imhotep, and soon the cursed priest rises from his grave to wreck vengeance on humanity. The Mummy was written and directed by Stephen Sommers, whose previous cinematic journeys into the past include The Jungle Book and The Adventures Of Huck Finn.

Watched this movie and was so hilarious with Johnathan in it and action pack with Rick and Evie,Must watch if you are a mummy fan.
This movie is the best movie I have ever seen. I have it on dvd and video and I have the soundtrack. The director, Stephan Sommers is brilliant and Rachel Weiz, Brendan Fraser, and John Hannah are just so perfect for thier roles. The musical score by Jerry Goldsmith is great ( buy the sound track. The special effects that ILM created for this movie are stunning and breathtaking. They truly are unbelievable. This movie is an action packed adventure filled with thrills, chills, and romance and alot of comic relief. The story and script are perfect and I'm very glad they made a sequal. Trust me, SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!
this movie is a lot better than the second one, because it is fresh and new. when you see the second movie you think where is the action, and when is it coming. the movie is awesome and should be seen by everyone who has any interest ancient Egypt.
This movie is totally awesome! The actors, the action, the special effects are top notch. I love this movie so much I watch it almost everyday of my life! I fully recomend this movie expecially if you love Egypt, and adventure and action!
I have it memorized and have watched it 500+ times...I actually had to buy a new DVD since I WORE out the first! GREAT Movie! Lots of action and suspense yet still funny! I watch it atleast once a week!!
This a must see for all move lovers. Especially those that love action and adventure. While your at it pick the trilogy you won't be disapointed!!
I love this movie, it's the best. The special effects are the coolest. I would watch it every day if My mom would let me.
The movie ''The Mummy'' was a great movie. It had action, special effects, and horror. The movie was basically about a group of people who went to Egypt to find a long- lost treasure but, instead they found a 3,000 year old mummy, and that's where the action begins. Starring Brendan Fraser and directed by Stephan Sommers.
I LOVE this movie. It is and always will be my favorite movie of all time.
I had never seen a movie better than this movie. I see it as an action-packed movie filled with loads of special effect.
It's TRUE. The movie is a blast. The production values are very high - even the music is great. There is some darkness here, and it gets your attention. What did the ancient Egyptians believe? The movie has some truly amazing effects that will freak you out (which is intentional.) The mummy is granted the abilities to recreate the plagues of Egypt and has power over the sands of the desert itself. This is a must-buy and should be at mimimum a must-rent. WATCH IT.
I just love the way they done the movie, it was good and I love it. I can't wait to get my own copy on dvd.
A MUST-SEE MOVIE. MAGNIFICENT, EXCITING, EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY. THE CHARACTERS WERE WONDERFUL, VERY INTERESTING, AND SOME SCENES WERE VERY ENDEARING AND FUNNY. I LOVE THE SUSPENSE AND THE WHOLE MOVIE WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU SPEND TO SEE IT.
This movie was extremely exciting throughout the entire movie with great special effects and action sequences. It was funny at times and filled with surprises. It was great to see a woman who takes charge of the situation and helps out and not always rely on the man to rescue her.
A great film! I really recommend it if you like action/semi-creepy special effects. An excelent commedy...I know what I am buying myself for Christmas!
This is the first film of the best movie series. If you haven't seen this film you just have to see it. I love the whole series and have bought every movie. I love everything about this movie. It's just sad that the 2008 mummy movie replaces Evy. I hope they continue this movie series and bring the movie back to Egypt along with Rachel Weisz as the original Evy.
