Ratings & Reviews

  • There's much mumbo-jumbo about past lives and symbolic tattoos, but who cares when you can gaze at a sight as lovely as a dirigible floating in the night sky? show more

  • Although the sequel retains its predecessor's breezy retro spirit, The Mummy Returns is a mite darker and scarier and the effects a little spiffier.

  • This frenzied sequel has all of the clank but none of the swank of the previous version.
