One of the most successful fantasy films of 2001, The Mummy Returns gets the deluxe treatment on DVD, with a sharp transfer and a bevy of bonus features. This edition of the film has been given a letterboxed transfer at 2.35:1 (it's also enhanced for widescreen monitors), as well as a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack in both English and French (sorry, but no subtitles). Director Stephen Sommers adds a commentary track, and there's also a bonus featurette on the making of the film. An interview with famed professional wrestler the Rock (who appears in a supporting role) is included, as well as short features on Egyptian lore and legend and the creation of the film's elaborate special effects. The rock group Live appears in a music video for the song "Forever May Not Be Long Enough," featured in the film's soundtrack, and consumers whose computers have DVD-ROM drives can access additional online information on the movie and how it was made. There's also a pan-and-scan DVD available of The Mummy Returns with most of the same bonus features, but true fans of the film will want the widescreen edition, which truly makes the most of the film's striking visual effects.

The Mummy Returns is amazing and thrilling! It's better than the first, which was pretty good, too. The Mummy Returns has it all: action (lots and lots of it), special effects, superb acting, great solid storyline and plot, adventure, comedy, romance, drama, and even history all rolled into one giant larger-than-life epic film! Brendan Fraser is hot in this movie, as well as an excellent actor. I saw this movie opening weekend with my best friend and we both loved it! The fighting sceens are awesome, too. The special effects kick butt! I definitely recommend this movie. You must buy it on DVD 'cause it rocks - there are lots of good special features on this DVD, too. One of the best movies ever!
Writer-director Stephen Sommers succeeds in creating a sequel that is even worse than its predecessor. Another example of how outdated Hollywood cliches such as mummy stories should be left in their tomb undisturbed. With even less character development and plot than the original, this movie puts all its stakes on the dazzling special effects that are too absurd if not comically bizarre to be credible. The story now focuses on the Scorpion King (The Rock) who, after being dead for 5,000 years, comes to life again in the '30s to defend his newly discovered oasis from evildoers. Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are back but married with a young son named Alex (Freddie Boath) to find the oasis before the antagonists. Bad acting and character development are as numerous as grains of sand in a desert storm; suffocating the audience with forced expressions and bad dialogue. The Rock seems more interested in embellishing himself in his first feeble attempts at acting outside of a WWF match than actually playing the role of his character. The movie reaches the absurd in how the characters go off on their 'epic' adventure. A flying carpet discovered in a tomb or souk by accident would have been more credible than the ridiculous flying contraption used by the characters to reach their destination. If you want to laugh at how bad a movie can be, by all means, rent this movie. Again, a perfect demonstration on how long-dead story concepts should be kept in their Hollywood sarcophagi never to rise again. To bring them back to life and torment an audience ad nauseam is a curse indeed.
This is an amazing movie series. I hope they continue creating these films. The characters, scenery, even theme is amazing. I'm actually sad that the new 2008 mummy film wasn't about Egypt or conquering the same mummy again. This movie is really action packed and spills more facts and info about the characters. It takes place years after the first film and adds a new twist to the adventure.
I loved it. The special effects were awsome andi love egypt so this was perfect.I have watched ''The Mummy'' many timesand will still watche it some more. I hope that I can do the same with ''The Mummy Return
If you love Brendan Fraser movies, or just enjoy movies with alot of Action, Adventure, and Suspense, this movie is for you!The ''Mummmy Returns'' continues fron where ''The Mummy'' left off (about 10 years later). Rick is Married now and has a child who is kidnapped after he puts on the bracelet of Anubis (Egyptian god of the dead) and starts a chain of events leading to the resurrection of Imhotep and eventually the scorpian king (played by the rock). Even if you thought the first movie of ''The Mummy'' was lame or you didn't see it yet, go out today and rent ''The Mummy Returns'' today!
Very good, just like the first one.
tHIS FILM WAS BETTER THAN THE FIRST MOVIE. It had more charters. I loved this movie.
If you like action adventure movies you will really enjoy this movie. Before this movie I didn't really like action adventure. Once I saw this I had to go and watch the first one. I really enjoyed that one also. The script is very well written and you never get lost on whats going on. This is a movie that will amaze you time and time again.
The movie is not melodramatic or anything like that therefore it is a good movie. It is a movie that you prefer to other movies for its pure action.
I enjoyed this movie a lot more than the first Mummy even though I didn't see this one in theaters. I rarely buy DVD's. I only buy them if they have loads of extra features and this one is WELL worth your money. It includes deleted scenes and games and everything to keep you busy for hours. The special effects are great and okay the acting isn't exactly 'Gone With The Wind' but it's an adventure movie OK? I love Egyptian stuff so of course I love this movie. Highly reccomended to any history/action movie lover!
Brendan Fraser was just absolutely hott, hott, hott! I loved this movie!
this really is one of my most favourite films of all time and i like a lot of films! other people i have talked to also agree. it will change your view of the first film quite a lot, it made me think of it in a completely different way! it is more action packed than the mummy and there is more of the past involved. i wouldn't say it was better than The Mummy, i think they are both as good, but they are good in different ways. This is definately one of the best films ever made.
The Mummy Returns is one of the most spectacular movies of it's time.
There aren't too many sequals that are better than the original, but The Mummy Returns is one of them. While The Mummy took about an hour to really get some action going, The Mummy Returns is action packed right from the beginning. It's good old-fashioned adventure entertainment that will keep any action fan glued to their seats. The massive battle scene towards the end is amazing.
The Mummy Returns was a good movie; it had its moments. The comedy was a little too slap stick, some of the events a little unbelievable - I felt like I was watching a very hurried sequel to the original; as if they'd just thrown it together and hoped people would like it again. A nice try, but not nearly as impressive as the first.
I think The Mummy Returns is such a good movie. I saw it in thearters and it was cool but even coller on video.
