The Mummy Returns

VIOLENCE-5/5. Scarab beetles crawl under a man's skin, and burst out of his mouth. This is the most graphic scene of the movie. Some intense battles between sides. (Swords clashing). Some sword fights. A man's hand is reduced to bones after it is eaten by a scorpion. He is later torn apart. This is not as bad as it sounds. Miniature skeleton creatures (pygmies) attack a group of people, not too graphic but just plain frightening. Some gun shootings. A group of mummies are pretty scary, but they are killed by the good guys. Overall great sequel.

Good but not as good as first one less gory and less scary too.

Return if the mummy is ok. The movie is about the same characters but this time they have a son and this group of people unleash the mummy. Apparently after the mummy is u leashed and sucks people's bodies to get human form (like the first one) there is a time of seven days before the mummies enemy the scorpion king is unleashed and rules the world (the mummy is the scorpion kings enemy cuz he wants to rule). So it's up to the main charterers to save the world again. The movie is less gory and more boring he first but it is still good. The beetles that crawl in the skins are only in a few scenes unlike the first one. That's why I gave the movie 3/5 and say the movie is great for most Pre-teens. This is your common sence media reviewer. :D

Dumb, stupid, confusing, porley explained...

One thing, WHO THE HECK IS THE SCORPION KING?????? He is just some guy they made up because they couldn't think of a better plot!!! why cant the mummy just return? why dose this scorpion king guy have to be there too? Just read on for the issues: 1. Gunplay, hand to hand duels, and killing, many things, such as the mummy, may scare kids. 2. Mild language including: A-s, D--n, and H--l. 3. revaling outfits and kissing. The only reason to wach this is if you A: are a die hard movie fan, B: a die hard mummy fan, or C: some one who has to watch every movie in a siries so he can see al the new and old charecters, otherwise, don't watch this.

Less scariness + Unnecessary humor = Crap

The first Mummy movie was so good that I just watched this on impluse, and it was a BIG disappointment. When it comes to sequels, I expect more violence and scariness, and while this film has a bigger budget, it loses itself with increased humor and a complete lack of scariness. There is action, but the spine-tingling chills of the first film are not to be found here. We have here one of those times where the sequel ruins itself in an attempt to top the first. Go watch the original.

Violent, disappointing sequel not as good as first

I thought the first Mummy, although scary and gross, was great. This time around, we get a little campier, and it just doesn't work. Maybe for some people who didn't like the first, much scarier one, they would prefer this campier, more comic-book-esque adventure, but not me. Parents: although this one is campier, that doesn't mean that there isn't plenty of peril, violence and action, plus several scary images. There's some suggestive content and salty language. Bottom Line: Rent the first one if you're looking for a good movie. Rent this one if you want to take it easy. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man

The Mummy Returns

A nice sequel to The Mummy series. Way less creepy than the first, but really entertaining.
Teen, 14 years old Written byKayKayD September 20, 2009

Great Movie

The Mummy Returns is an outstanding sequel to an equally outstanding movie. The scenes are well-thought-out, the action-y parts are well-coordinated, the dialouge is great (no cheese) and the characters are well-done. There is definatly some graphic gun-fighting, and the scene where Anck-su-namun stabs Evelyn is a bit disturbing, although it lacks blood. The violence might bother some younger children. There is light profanity. Light. The role models are good because they fight for what's right. Take Rick for example; he fights to save his son's life and later to avenge his wife. Dedicated husband and father, Take Ardeth; he fights for the duty he was charged with. He has determination and ambition; two great human qualities. My absolute favorite movie.

Decent Adventure Monster Film

Some may even say it's a Horror movie
Teen, 15 years old Written bybubbo April 9, 2008

Pretty Lame

Don't listen to what CSM is saying, The Mummy Returns is a dumb, brainless, laughable flick nowhere near the quality of Indiana Jones. It's entertaining, but the acting, script, and plot are terribly cheesy and poor. Stay away unless you think monkey mummies are really frightening. Good for kids:10+

The Mummy Returns is a so-so sequel

“Although there is some funny dialogue, a couple of good action scenes and a solid pace, ultimately the Mummy Returns just can’t overcome its awful CGI (almost looks like a videogame), clichéd storyline, terrible anticlimactic ending, poor character development and the movie as a whole is very forgettable. I do NOT recommend this film.”

Very Violent and Frightening...Not for Kids!

I saw THE MUMMY first, and then the third, since this one wasn't at my local library. The first was more of a horror film, and the third was more like Indiana Jones (which made me like it more). Well, I have just remembered the heavenly gifts of Blockbuster, and I rented this one to watch last night. It falls more in vein with the spirit of the first, and is filled with frightening images that will be too horrific for kids. Lets start by saying that any kids who find half-decomposed people scary should not watch this film. The movie is filled with them, and they stalk the main characters everywhere and kill many people (in one such scene, a mummy sucks the flesh off a man's face into his mouth, leaving the man a skeleton). Little skeleton pygmie-monkeys (think Jack the monkey in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) impale and slice people with spears. Also, people are shot and stabbed by other people, not just mummies. A woman is almost burned to death. There are some mild revealing outfits and some passionate kissing, that's all. Language consists of one or two "d**n"s and one "go to h*ll". Though several of the characters are evil and self-serving, the main characters are kind, loyal, and sacrifice for each other.

This was a good movie, but not near as good as the first. Slightly more confusing and a little slower. Less violence, though, but still some swearing. Not much gruesome imagery, though.

Not as good as the first and stupid.

The Mummy 2 is exciting the but the visual are bad and in one scene the director mixes up the Rock and a scoripian which is very funny.
