Product Description

Product Description

Swashbuckling Egyptian adventure. Brendan Fraser plays Rick O'Connell, an American who discovers Hamunaptra, the city of the dead. He is driven away by locals and arrested. Three years later, Englishman Jonathan (John Hannah) discovers an ancient artefact which he gives to his sister Evelyn (Rachel Weisz). In turn, she trades the artefact for Rick's release from prison and the trio set off for Hamunaptra, hoping to arrive there before Beni (Kevin J. O'Connor), Rick's crooked former associate. However Beni has already invoked a curse which frees Imhotep, a supernaturally-gifted mummy. He pursues the adventurers across the land, feeding upon the flesh of unfortunate explorers. He aims to sacrifice Evelyn, hoping to resurrect another evil mummy...

From Amazon.co.uk

If you're expecting bandaged-wrapped corpses and a lurching Boris Karloff-type villain, then you've come to the wrong movie. But if outrageous effects, a hunky hero, and some hearty laughs are what you're looking for, the 1999 version of The Mummy is spectacularly good fun. Yes, the critics called it "hokey," "cheesy," and "pallid." Well, the critics are unjust. Granted, the plot tends to stray, the acting is a bit of a stretch, and the characters occasionally slip into cliché, but who cares? When that action gets going, hold tight--those two hours just fly by.

The premise of the movie isn't that far off from the original. Egyptologist and general mess Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) discovers a map to the lost city of Hamunaptra, and so she hires rogue Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) to lead her there. Once there, Evelyn accidentally unlocks the tomb of Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), a man who had been buried alive a couple of millennia ago with flesh-eating bugs as punishment for sleeping with the pharaoh's girlfriend. The ancient mummy is revived, and he is determined to bring his old love back to life, which of course means much mayhem (including the unleashing of the 10 plagues) and human sacrifice. Despite the rather gory premise, this movie is fairly tame in terms of violence; most of the magic and surprise come from the special effects, which are glorious to watch, although Imhotep, before being fully reconstituted, is, as one explorer puts it, rather "juicy." Keep in mind this film is as much comedy as it is adventure--those looking for a straightforward horror pic will be disappointed. But for those who want good old-fashioned eye-candy kind of fun, The Mummy ranks as one of choicest flicks of 1999. --Jenny Brown

This new 'Augmented Reality' edition is essentially the previous Blu-ray transfer on a new disc, and so on first inspection, is not really noteworthy. However, like all the latest Universal 100 products, this is a damn fine release that works out excellent value. What you're getting for under eight quid (at the time of writing) is the film in a stunning transfer, brand new HD documentaries and a great selection of special features from the previous releases - both DVD and Blu-ray.

Both 'The Mummy' and it's sequel are the two gems of the saga that, in time, started to falter with some poor productions. I'm delighted that Universal have selected this original film as part of it's centenary celebrations as it has clearly become a modern day classic. The juxtaposition of the swashbuckling but ultimately careless Brendan Frasier and focus on historical themes is absolutely spot on, and makes for a hugely entertaining movie. I know many people that have watched this film who normally wouldn't touch anything with such a combination, but they loved it. And as a deep lover of Ancient Egypt myself, I get a great sense of release* from watching Rachel Weisz battle with history! Boy, she's beautiful and deadly...

... In short however, this release of The Mummy is flawless and I'll certainly be flicking through Universal's other '100' titles as they're all the same price. In case you're wondering what the 'Augmented Reality' deal is, you're given the opportunity to hold an Apple iOS device (iPhone/Pad) and point the built-in camera at the slipcover of this product. The Universal App (which you must download) then creates a 3D image on your screen of... well, I won't spoil it, but it's fun if you want to pass a minute or two.

*The release I refer to is PURELY cognitive.

'The Mummy' was a box office smash hit back in 1999 with an all-star cast of Brendan Fraser, Rachael Weisz and John Hannah with the genius of Steven Sommers behind it 100%. The tale of Evelyn a somewhat misunderstood librarian with a fascination of Egypt and Rick O'Connell the man who's life she saved to lead her to Hamunaptra, lost city of the dead. Where the three accidently release an undead curse and then battle to put it back where it came from. This film with shocking computer graphics and brilliant slick comic style is ideal for every type of film lover, as too is the sequel 'The Mummy Returns'. Set 9 years later the married couple and thier son Alex are once again united with Egypt and their curiousity of exploration. Evelyn's dreams come into collision with the Egyptian new year and with that bring flashbacks of past lives, leading her to discover her fate planned hundereds of years before her existence. Once again Rick and Evelyn along with Alex and Jonathon must battle to save the world from Imhotep and the Scorpian King. Featuring WWF's The Rock this is a well-planned and perfect sequel to 'The Mummy'. This box set will give both the brilliant masterpieces a chance to shine true. A must have for all film-lovers, no matter your preference.

It's a good enough film, it wont be appearing on any top 100 lists any time soon(including mine), but it doesn't try to be. It doesn't take itself too seriously, is very entertaining and it is quite cheap to buy. So overall a film worth buying, but maybe not worth watching more than 2 or 3 times.

This movie is so much fun to watch.

It never set out to be a classic or cinematic masterpiece. It just provides a couple of hours of entertainment and as it cost less than £1 delivered, I easily got my money's worth.

These films are two films that should not be missed by any. The Mummy is romance, comedy and adventure all rolled into one, with The Mummy Returns packing in the same kind of stuff. In The Mummy, you see how the characters meet, and you are taken on a whirlwind adventure, with surprises on the way. This film is what inspires you to see the next one. The Mummy Returns is how the characters are 10 years later, all related with a few new ones, and it provides the same laughs and adventure that the first one did. Both storylines were carefully thought out, and produced in an amazing way!
With strong characters like Brendan Fraser as Rick and Rachel Weisz as Evy, they bring both films together. The special effects for both are also amazing. Creatures that you know are not real, look like they are and some amazing scenes are done that you would hardly believe are not reality. These films are a must see for everyone, and a collection that is needed for all!

I think we always try looking to deeply into movie meanings. I believe that these two films, (for a good example), are mean't for pure enjoyment, no deep meaning, no subliminal messages etc. Just sit back and relax and let the special effects, pretty people and Ancient Eygptian sets take over. No disrespect intended, cause I personally love anything to do with Eygpt, AND I think both movies are great! Thankyou Mr Sommers

As far as films made for pure entertainement go this is one of the best. Below, more of my impressions with some limited SPOILERS.

In Thebes, Egypt, 1,290 BC, high priest Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo), a handsome man well versed in the arts of occult and black magic, engaged in an affair with Anck-su-Namun (Patricia Velasquez, sculptural), the favourite concubine of Pharaoh Seti I. When the affair was discovered, Imhotep and Anck-su-Namun murdered the monarch but when Seti's guards arrived, Imhotep fled while Anck-su-Namun killed herself. In her last words she implored Imhotep to bring her back to life with his dark magic... Those are the first two minutes and about the rest I will just say that quite fast after this introduction we are transported to Egypt in Year of Grace 1926 and then the film really begins.

This film is based mostly on a gallery of endearing or amusing characters, fast moving action and clever, witty dialogs. The main male character is an American adventurer Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser), about whom we just know that he used to serve in French Foreign Legion and that he is currently rotting in an Egyptian jail awaiting his execution. The main female character is Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz), a young British lady currently working as librarian but who is also an amateur Egyptologist.

Important secondary characters are:

- Jonathan Carnahan (John Hannah), Evelyn's brother, a kind of ne'er-do-well guy and the black sheep of his family
- Beni Gabor (Kevin J.
