... the script is almost too tongue-in-cheek for its own good, but Sommers' thrill a minute cliffhanger is a tribute, a parody, and a high energy period adventure all in one.

A raucous and entertaining action horror entry with great performances, and a vicious villain.

It revels in its own retro-ness, and it's a hell of a lot of fun.

Director Stephen Sommers has a kind of soulless, leaden touch, with none of the sleek, sprightly fun this kind of movie requires.

it's easy to fall back on self-conscious humor. But if, as the author, you have to keep interrupting your story to remind the audience how dumb the material is, what's the point of telling the tale in the first place?

O roteiro de Stephen Sommers tem o bom-senso de não se levar a sério.

The Mummy is further proof that the digital world is not yet a rich, tactile one.

There are a few jump-in-your-seat moments of pure fright, but this "Mummy" has more in common with Indiana Jones than Boris Karloff.

There is hardly a thing I can say in its favor, except that I was cheered by nearly every minute of it.

We're left impressed by the effects and wondering why the filmmakers didn't even try to do anything else new and interesting.
