The Mummy Collection - The Mummy / The Mummy Returns 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I never saw these movies in the theater, nor did I see them on TV first. I heard from friends how good they were so when the boxed set showed up at Costco I purchased it. On my first available weekend I popped both movies and watched non stop for over four hours.
I wasn’t a Brendan Fraser until I watched his portrayal of Rick O’Connell the adventurer. His mixture of bravery, bravado and comedy was great . Rachel Weisz plays Evee, the perfect intelligent air head to perfection. John Hannah’s self centered character Jonathan, who always bumbles into to doing the right thing is timeless. Jonathan is someone you want to choke and hug at the same time.
I haven’t seen any mention of Oded Fehr in the reviews. I throughly enjoyed his character Ardeth Bay as leader of the Magi. His shift in attitude toward Rich, Evee and Jonathan in the first movie is slow and grudgingly given. Ardeth’s timely entrance to help the O’Connell’s in the second installment, The Mummy Returns is expected and welcome. These are two movies that will remain enjoyable entertainment for years to come.
