Mummy, The (1999)

1999 | PG-13 | Action, Fantasy, Adventure

User Score: 73/100


An American serving in the French Foreign Legion on an archaeological dig at the ancient city of Hamunaptra accidentally awakens a Mummy.

On its own merits THE MUMMY is entertaining enough , there`s lot of action , a few rare scary bits but far too much humour which threatens to sink the film . I guess this is down to the producers trying to attract a younger audience and boost their profits but this all leads to a silly film . And I got the distinct impression that he script was written around the FX . For example there`s a special effects packed meteor shower but there`s no explanation for it , it adds nothing to plot and is never referred to again even though it kills a lot of people . Obviously the scene was written to show off some CGI.
