Set in the 1920s, adventurer Rick leads Egyptologist Evelyn and her brother Jonathan to mysterious Hamunaptra. While Jonathan is keen on finding legendary Egyptian treasures, Evelyn wants to search for the Book of the Living, which would clarify a lot in historical knowledge about the ancient Egyptians. Unfortunately, they free Imhotep's mummy from his eternal prison. Imhotep, a former high priest to the pharoh, wants not only to use Evelyn's body to bring back his mistress Anck Su Namunut, but also to rule the world.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the definitive take on The Mummy, even if it is more of an action movie than a horror one.

Love this fun, action film which takes one on a wild ride in Egypt!! I have viewed it several times. Brendan Fraser well cast. Many favorite, entertaining actors especially Oded Fehr (Resident Evil), Rachel Weisz and Jonathan Hannah. Special effects great and some really creepy like the flesh-eating beetles. Cool that the fierce Mummy was afraid of a cat (hope that isn't a spoiler)!

A lot of fun, with good special effects, a fine choice in casting, and terrific chemistry between the two leads. Perfect kind of summer movie.

The Mummy is an awesome action flick and one of my all time favorite movies. I can watch it over and over and I never tire of it. It has all the elements of a great popcorn flick: tons of humor, plenty of action, and great special effects. It also has a touch of suspense and spookiness that makes it even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this movie to anybody, and everybody!

Beni: Hey, O'Connell! It looks to me like I've got all the horses!
Rick: Hey, Beni! Looks to me like you're on the wrong side of the river!

Evelyn: Look, I... I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, Mr. O'Connell, but I am proud of what I am.
Rick: And what is that?
Evelyn: I... am a librarian.
