- Mummy Returns, The on Blu-ray ReviewNote: The following review contains portions from the previous HD-DVD review of "The Mummy." The technical sections for Video, Audio and Extras have been updated to reflect the differences between the two formats´ releases. The entire review has been re-edited and updated, but the majority of the text is simply recycled from the earlier review.
The 1999 film "The Mummy" was quite successful and a sequel was quickly developed and rushed into production, arriving two years later.

The franchise continuation I had surmised would have been to have Rick O´Connell (Brendan Fraser) set out on all new adventures and face different foes and circumstances, but "The Mummy Returns" is a sequel for its heroes and its villains.
The events of the film take place roughly eight years after the first film. Rick O´Connell and Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) married just after the defeated Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) and now have a son, Alex (Freddie Boath). Alex is a smart and curious boy who works with his parents on their archeological digs and is inventive and poised to continue in his father´s footsteps. One night, at the O´Connell manor, Alex takes a shiny gold bracelet and replaces it with a candlestick to emulate it weight. He puts on the bracelet, and is shown a holographic image of ...Read full review
