The Mummy Returns

The Mummy Returns had everything the first one had, but it had something at the end that killed its chances of being better than the first. The end’s computer animation lost something that the rest of the film had, realism. I’m not saying that the rest of the movie was realistic, but what I am saying is that the computer animation in the beginning and middle of the film was actually half way decent. Then the end of the film, and the Rock’s character in particular, fell apart. The story is your typical Three Stooges meets Indiana Jones that you had in the first film. Is this film worth seeing? Well, that depends. If you can see it for free, definitely. If you liked the first one, yes. If you didn’t see the first one, see the first one first. Trust me, it should be on sale at Blockbuster. Then go see the matinee.
