So how does a movie overcome a case of the been-there-done-thats? By throwing lots more of the same-old-same-old at its audience, that's how.

Feels like treading of the same old ground. And that's likely because no one here has really evolved.

Very violent, mostly in comic-book terms.

More or less a wholesale recycling of the 1999 original.

...a computer generated stinker of a dud.

The whole two-hours-plus affair just soars along, brainlessly and breathlessly.

The film's bloated ambition seems of a piece with its panting, happy-dog charm. [Blu-Ray]

The mummy may, but the audience shouldn't.

The Mummy Returns isn't concerned with character development or plot; it exists simply to please the audience with massive amounts of eye-candy.

With a few extra zeros on the budget this time around, Sommers runs riot.

Feels like so much scrap metal picked up off the factory floor at the place where they made the first one.

There's really just not much to say about this movie. What you expect is what you get.

An old-fashioned adventure yarn accelerated for a video-game era, an H. Rider Haggard novel rocketing by at 150 MPH.

Sommers showers us with noise and color, but the film rarely generates much in the way of real excitement. There's a freeze-dried feel to much of the movie...

Um filme que diverte a platéia durante cerca de duas horas, mas que é prontamente esquecido no momento em que as luzes se acendem.

The problem with The Mummy Returns is that it tries to qualify the need for a sequel with an extraordinarily unnecessary amount of plot.

Funnier -- and scarier -- than "Gone with the Wind"!

The Mummy Returns has everything a sugar-addled twelve-year-old could possibly want. I'll leave it to you to decide if that's a good or a bad thing.

The Mummy Returns is all but a patchwork quilt made up of, if not leftover scenes, then scrap ideas.
