Egyptian history continues to inspire Hollywood directors. We have been entertained
with great movies like The Sphinx and Raiders of the Lost Ark in
the past, and keeping with the standards of these films is The Mummy.
Set in the 1920s with breath-taking visuals of the Sahara desert and the great
pyramids as the backdrop, this is one movie that will stay in your memory for
a long time. The story line is fast paced and the cinematography is excellent.
A semi-horror flick, this is definitely worth a watch.
In the quest for the tombs of the great Egyptian pharaohs, archeologists unsuspectingly
enter the tomb of an evil Egyptian priest, and release the 3000-year-old evil
spirit from its captivity. All hell breaks loose as the evil spirit goes about
rejuvenating itself with the blood of helpless victims. The only person who can
save the day is Brendan Fraser, who plays a World War II veteran and has a fair
knowledge of the spiritual phenomenon of Egypt. In the end, good triumphs over
Yes, the story seems all too familiar and simple - it's the narration and the
special effects of this movie that are bound to keep you glued to your seat. One
particular scene where the desert comes alive will have you spellbound and wowed.
Definitely worth a watch.
