    Hands-down one of my top five favorite adventure films of all time, "The Mummy Returns" takes all the fun from the first movie - action and humor - and launches it off on a far more epic platform as Rick O' Connell and Evie find themselves trying to track down their young son and the reincarnated Imhotep before he can kill the Scorpion King and unleash hell upon the world. Yeah, I knowHands-down one of my top five favorite adventure films of all time, "The Mummy Returns" takes all the fun from the first movie - action and humor - and launches it off on a far more epic platform as Rick O' Connell and Evie find themselves trying to track down their young son and the reincarnated Imhotep before he can kill the Scorpion King and unleash hell upon the world. Yeah, I know it's all kinda corny and over-the-top, but this movie is just so friggin' entertaining you can't help but love it. Brendan Fraser was the star of the first film for his charm and charisma, and here he delivers more of the same. The chemistry between him and Rachel Weisz is as palpable as ever, the brother is still a good bit of fun, and the son - God, the scenes with the son and Ockna (or whatever his name is) are just hilarious! How can anyone not enjoy this? I never get tired of watching it - "The Mummy Returns" is simply awesome. Expand

    What matters is that the movie's a blast, right up until its protracted climax.

    Many of the visual effects are stunning, but others are downright cheesy -- especially an attempt to fuse the Rock's head onto a scorpion's body.
