The Mummy Returns

"The most powerful force on earth is about to be unleashed by the two people who should know better."

The Mummy Returns is an action movie. The movie starts around the thirty-first century BC. The Scorpion King lead his massive army to conquer the known world. After many years, his army is defeated and they are exiled to a desert. He makes a deal with Anubis, the Egyptian God of the Dead, to give his soul for the ability to seek revenge on the ones that defeated him.

Then story moves to the early twentieth century. Rick and Evelyn O’Connell are exploring a ruined structure in the ancient city of Thebes with their son. They discover several artifacts including the Bracelet of Anubis. They leave Egypt and go back to London where Alex discovers that the bracelet provides one with the directions to the place that the Scorpion King was banished. Since Alex has put on the bracelet, he has seven days to reach the pyramid before he dies.

Alex is kidnapped by a cult in London who have resurrected Imhotep. The cult’s goal is to use Imhotep’s power to defeat the Scorpion King so that Imhotep would command Anubis’ army. The O’Connells set out to save Alex and they go to their friend, Izzy for help. They follow the clues that Alex leaves for them at each place he has been taken by the cult. The O’Connells arrives at the pyramid where Alex is and Rick rescues him. Evelyn is killed by a resurrected Anck-su-namun but Alex brings her back with the Book of the Dead.

The Mummy Returns is the second of three Mummy movies. During the filming, they were able to close the London’s Tower Bridge for about ten minutes at a time to allow for traffic to get through as well. The building that was used for the British Museum was not the real one. The real one was closed for renovations at the time.
