Amidst all my favorite movie dramas and Shakespearean plays, somehow, anentertainment-driving blockbuster from 1999 became my favorite movie. Icould watch it a thousand times over (which, I garuntee you, I have) andstill not tire of it.A sit-back-and-enjoy-the-ride kind of film, don't do the mindless thing asother reviewers here have and compare it to THE GODFATHER or GONE WITH THEWIND. As I've had to remind several people--IT'S MADE TO BEENJOYED!Definitely comparable to the INDIANA JONES movies (yet exceeding themimmensely), I'd recommend it to anyone who loves action, adventure, humor,romance, and/or Ancient Egypt! Set perfectly in the 1920's, THE MUMMYstarred a group of "nobody" actors who are now getting to be somebodies inHollywood.A perfect 10 for a movie night with friends, or alone on a Tuesday night.(Just don't go near the sequel!!!!!!!!)
I saw this movie ten times, my six-yeard old cousin loves it, of courseeverychildren on the planet loves seeing Brendan Fraser. But "The Mummy" wasn'tmeant to be the sequel of "Duddley do Right".If you've seen "George of the Jungle" you'll start calling this movie"Rickof the desert" even when I love Brendan Fraser's acting in movies like"Godsand Monsters" honestly in this one he plays dumb.There's a few entertaining scences on the picture, in fact in some of themyou believe you're seeing Rachel Weisz yeling to the mummy "Eat theScript... for god's sake eat the damn script" . Just joking, the specialeffects are quite good, they are probably the real stars of themovie.Rachel Weisz does a good Old fashined lady, she and BF hava a greatchemistry.John Hannah.... he's Evelyn's playboy brother, he does a good job but hischaracter has no purpose.Brendan Fraser like I've already said is a disaster about to happen. Imeanhe has some good scenes but in most of his scenes all he does is kill andremark without stile for example; "Here we go again" "Mummies!".I'll give this movie 5 stars and I am being generous.
Like Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, this movie is aclassic. This one is better than the original, because it has better specialeffects, and it's more exciting. This may not be a really scary movie but itdoes deliver thrills. The acting is superb. Brandon Fraser, and RachelWeisz's acting is superb. At times it got pretty funny. It also hadadventure. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes the originalMummy movie or who ever likes a good thrill ride.
This movie is awful. Just plain awful.The acting is ludicrous. Which leads us to the disgracefull casting. Ofcourse the best casting in the world couldn't save thescript.The effects were nice, and had the potential to be horrifying. But thismovie could never figure out what it wanted to be. Were they trying totakethemselves seriously? In some parts, yes. In others, no. Was this supposedto be horror? adventure? camp/comedy?Turns out, it was none of the above. Probably because the actors were notsure either. From the scooby-doo footprints on the ship to the"Thriller"-like mummy priests this movie reeked of camp. Except someoneforgot to to tell the Mr. Frasier. The scenes go from Indiana Jones spoofstoIndiana Jones rip-offs in the blink of an eye.If you liked Godzilla, you'll love this movie. If not- go rent BorisKarloff's mummy. Except for the effects, it is superior in everyway.
This movie was nothing like I expected it to be. Indiana Jones itain't.There are a lot of special effects in this movie. There's bugs that eatyoualive, there's skeletons that fight, there's fires aboard ships andthere'ssand storms that are alive. The best special effect, though, is thateveryone running around in the hot deserts of Egypt fighting for theirlivesDO NOT SWEAT! Nope, not one bead!Save your money and save your time. See something else.
The Mummy. A remake of the 1932 Boris Karloff classic. Times have changed.Nearly all of the scenes in this film are enhanced with astonishingcomputergraphics. Whole scenes are just computer generated - and this was welldone.It's hard to say if it's real or if it's just an imagination from a highspeeded 'calculator'.The movie itself has a good story, based on the original. Some'treasure-hunters' (some are lookign for gold, others for the 'Golden Bookof Amun-Ra') found a lost city. They enter it and find the 'Book of theDead'. During reading it, they awake the mummy of 'Imhotep' - a highpriestwho was burried alive, because of his evil living. The war between small'earth# powers and the inmortral mummy begins.A surprise for everyone was, that they put lots of jokes in the movie, soyou also have to laugh a lot.Over all the movie was excellent. The technices used, the story and eventheactors.My Tip: This is a film to see, and even if it's over 120 minutes - it'snever boring...
This remains, even after 5 years, solidly at the top of my "worst filmsever" list. It is simply the absolute worst film I have ever seen. If itwasmeant to be irritatingly laughable then it is extremely successful, but ifso it still isn't up my street. The money went, quite clearly, on specialeffects. That is, a calamitous jumble of humorous 'spirits' and the likes.I.e. pure garbage.The remaining 1% of the budget probably (if they were lucky) went on thecast and the script writer. This had the best collection of the nation's(Ireally mean planet's) worst actors/actresses. They were painfully bad andifI'm being honest, it's probably this that distracts you from the 99% thatwas spent on the effects. Maybe that is a slight alleviation for Sommersfrom delivering the worst film of all time, but he's pushingit.The dialect and script is so bad you feel embarrassed for the cast thattheyhave to further relinquish their barely existent reputations by nearlyenacting them.Now that I have slated this awful, awful movie, I will advise anyone whohasn't seen it never to even pick up the box and read it. The fact thatthiswas so popular (admittedly among kids) is unlikely to be beaten as thebiggest mystery on the face of the earth
The Mummy has a preposterous plot and even some logical continuityproblems,yet is pure eye candy. Great special effects and about half a dozen trulystartling scenes that make you relive those days when you were a kid,hidingyour eyes and peeking between your fingers! A must see for the wholefamily (except for the faint of heart).
First off, I was never bored with this movie. There's almost nonstopactionand great special effects, but I can't recommend it. The story isooooollllllddddd. Expedition looking for a lost city and find the mummy'stomb---wow, how original. The dialogue is pathetic; the acting--well, whocares about acting in a summer movie (by the way, it's lousy); and nonstopspecial effects. That's the problem. It's way too special effects heavy.You're constantly being bombarded with reanimated corpses, sand storms,locusts, flesh-eating beetles, etc. etc. etc. It just wears you downafterawhile. At a few points I just prayed for the effects to stop and have aplot take over. But then when people DID stop and talk the dialogue wassomindbogglingly awful, I prayed for the special effects! So, if you don'tmind a plot as old as the mummy itself, lousy acting and special effectsbombarding you constantly, this is your movie. Otherwise stay far, faraway.
Stephen Sommers' "The Mummy" (1999) is exactly what a summeraction-adventure flick should be. "The Mummy" begins in ancient Egyptwhen the Pharaoh's choice concubine, Anck Su Namun (Patricia Velasquez)and High Priest Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), kill the Pharaoh and Anck SuNamun kills herself. Heartbroken, Imhotep attempts to raise her fromthe dead, but is stopped by the Pharaoh's guards. For his crime,Imhotep is mummified alive and cursed, never to enter the after life.But in 1923, an archaeological dig awakens the Mummy. Rick O'Connell(Brendan Fraser), Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) and her brother,Jonathon (John Hannah), vow to destroy the Mummy. They are aided by themysterious Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr), a man who's people have guarded theMummy for centuries. When I first saw the cast list for "The Mummy", Iwas skeptic; Brendan Fraser as an action hero? But he pulls it off andis exactly what the character of Rick requires- a goofy guy who somehowmanages to save the world. Weisz is wonderful as well. Surprisingly,Evelyn Carnahan is a dimensional character, rather than just somefloozy stuck into the film as a romantic interest for our hero. But thebest performance has to go to John Hannah. Whenever he is on screen, Ican't take my eyes off of him and I laugh at almost every line heutters. As it is a Stephen Sommers film, the special effects are ofcourse amazing Â for 1999 at least, and are quite good even now. I liketo call the mummy a "pre-Pirates of the Caribbean creature". But it'sgreat despite the major advancements since then. The script is alsowell done (it was written by Sommers as well), containing someincredibly entertaining dialogue and plot twists. If you are like meand enjoy action-adventure films, than "The Mummy" is another film youmust see. Definitely in my top 10 films.
The Karl Freund classic has been remade as a movie that is more IndianaJones than horror. A distinctly juvenile approach definitely ruins this forfans of horror movies. What is left is just an average adventure film.Excellent Jerry Goldsmith score, though. The state-of-the-art sound mix andspecial effects make it enjoyable for Dolby Surround addicts and sfxfans.
I wish I was bribed to this movie, because it wasn't worthadmission. Every film cliche doesn't describe The Mummy. Toeventry and explain it's sad existence is tiring. Let me beginwiththe previews: they show the best parts! Yes the effects are nice, for thefew minutes they really spend showing them. The rest of the film is filledwith Brendan Fraser and a chick and Arabs making one-liners and mumblingnon-sense. I felt like I had seen Stargate, Godzilla, Independance Day,Diehard 3, and the Matrix, all pulled into one un-inspired motion picturethat didn't even try to use originality. I wish the screenwriter had atleast read some of the dialogue they used from a P.C. script writingsoftware because it's boring. I think audiences would have enjoyed cuttingout the romance scenes and all the rest of the filler and just showed anhour and a half of the mummy killing people, I mean that's why they makethese types of generic recycled films after all. I would like to ask thereviewers who enjoy this film why they enjoyed this film, because you'veseenthis film dozens of times. Be it a lizard, an alien, a stereotypicalforeignassasin, or a mummy, it's the same thing,over and over and every summer. I'd like to spoil the endingbut I was too interested in picking my toe lint by thattimeto care.
The Mummy is a decent action movie with great special fx. While the plot isa bore, the visual tapestry unfolding before you will be worth your while. It wasn't as good as Congo (which is by no means a great movie) but wasbetter than the Matrix. My big problem with the film is Hollywood'spenchant for demeaning people of Arab and Middle Eastern descent. It seemslike they are the only group of people (besides the Nazis) that it is safeto ridicule.
As one of the other reviewers noted -- it frightens me that so many others thought so highly of this movie. Acting and story were terrible, pacing was worse -- even the FX weren't that great.
This remake of the studio's 1932 film starring Boris Karloff (fresh offhis success as the Creature in "Frankenstein" the previous year;Kenneth Branagh's 1994 film version, starring Robert DeNiro as theCreature and Branagh as Victor Frankenstein, is more faithful to MaryShelley's Gothic story, written in 1818) is a fresh and fun-filled rideyou'll want to take again and again. Brendan Fraser ("George Of TheJungle") is an Indiana Jones-type soldier-turned archaeologist when alibrarian (Rachel W.), due to her brother's (John Hannah) greed,accidentally stumbles upon a map revealing the location of an ancientcity. The trail leads them to Egypt, where...I won't say anymore. Thesequel is just as entertaining, as well as the prequel (which Sommersdidn't direct, but stayed on as producer). All three films should havebeen rated PG for action-violence.
This movie is not original. It's the basic save the world type movie, but what makes it so good is the special effects done with the mummy and numerous others. It's got it's funny parts played mostly by Rick and others. This movie also contain true facts about Egyptian life and afterlife. I personaly like the special effects and the comedy.
Okay, so the critics didn't really enjoy The Mummy. I can understand why. Not all of the acting is so great, the plot is very simular to Bram Stoker's Dracula, and some of the humor is a little cheesy. But that doesn't make it a bad flick. I thought that the humor and horror elements played well off of each other, the special effects were amazing, and the action sequences were flawless. To tell the truth, I would have given it five stars, except for my one small complaint. I really wish that at the end of the flick, The Mummy had actually won.
This is a great movie. The special effects are unbelievable. I don't see how you could not like this movie. If you are human and like movies just buy this movie.
I've no idea how people rate this movie more than a single star. I heard about the special effects before I seen the movie and expected something impressive. What I got however, was terrible special effects that I could have produced on an Amiga 10 years ago (the beetles floating on top of the ground for example). OK the face in the sand was quite good, but that was it. It has none of the pace or humour of the Indiana Jones series. Anyone who's looking for a '90s Indiana Jones should wait for the fabled Fate of Atlantis.
this a very entertaining and funny "Indian Jones" type of movie.it'salso very fast paced with some great visual effects.the acting is nothalf bad either.this movie is no Academy Award winner, but for sheerentertainment value,it ranks pretty high.their'e not a lot to dislikeabout this movie.sure it's not realistic,but who cares,it's notsupposed to be.i liked the sword fights a lot.i thought they wereexciting and well done.there's some funny lines as well and some greatsexual tension and chemistry between the two lead characters RickO'Connell(Brendan Frasier) and Evie Carnahan(Rachel Weisz).also JohnHannah is very funny as Evie's lazy,cowardly brother Johnathon.all inall,a very entertaining experience."The Mummy" gets a 9/10 from me
