Mad Cow's Guide to :
A full-scale re-imagining of Universal Pictures' seminal 1932 film, The Mummy is a rousing, suspenseful and horrifying epic about an expedition of treasure-seeking explorers in the Sahara Desert in 1925. Stumbling upon an ancient tomb, the hunters unwittingly set loose a 3,000-year-old legacy of terror, which is embodied in the vengeful reincarnation of an Egyptian priest who had been sentenced to an eternity as one of the living dead.
Hype aside - all in all the film is an enjoyable action/comedy romp which does not take itself too seriously (making it all the more fun). Exceptional special effects also help to bring the story to life - just don't expect too much from the story !!
An Alphaville production, The Mummy stars Brendan Fraser (George of The Jungle), Rachel Weisz (Swept From The Sea) and John Hannah (Sliding Doors). The film was written and directed by Stephen Sommers (Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, The Adventures of Huck Finn) and produced by James Jacks and Sean Daniel (Tombstone, Michael, Dazed & Confused). Industrial Light & Magic will produce the ground-breaking visual effects necessary to bring the awe-inspiring and terrifying world of The Mummy to life on the screen.
