Product Description

Deep in the Egyptian desert, a handful of people searching for a long-lost treasure have just unearthed a 3,000 year old legacy of terror. Combining the thrills of a rousing adventure with the suspense of Universal's legendary 1932 horror classic, The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser, is a true nonstop action epic, filled with dazzling visual effects, top-notch talent and superb storytelling.

Amazon.com

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

    There was already a 2-disc "Ultimate" Edition of The Mummy back in 2001, but it's no longer available. The upcoming release of The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor has prompted Universal to release a new edition of The Mummy with the major special features from the Ultimate Edition plus a few new ones. It will be only in widescreen (the Ultimate Edition had both wide and full).

    The Mummy is a peculiar movie, an Indiana Jonesish adventure originally intended as a low-budget remake of a 1932 horror film called The Mummy (also being released in a new Special Edition) that got spun in several directions before Brendan Fraser and huge special effects were settled on. Fraser plays an adventurer with the French Foreign Legion in 1920s Egypt who gets into serious trouble with, among other beings, a mummy (sort of) with terrible powers. Rachel Weisz plays the beautiful Egyptologist who both causes trouble and solves it. Fraser isn't ideally suited to a Harrison Ford-type role, his natural center of gravity tending more to the comic, but it's hard not to like him. The movie is less scary than just fun, if you don't insist on everything making sense.

    Here are the new special features:

    -- "An Army To Rule The World Part 1" featurette
    -- "Unraveling The Legacy Of The Mummy" featurette
    -- a digital copy of the movie
    -- a sneak peak at The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor

    These are the features taken from the Ultimate Edition:

    -- three audio commentaries:
    . . . director Stephen Sommers and editor Bob Ducsay
    . . . star Brendan Fraser
    . . . actors Oded Fehr, Kevin J.

    Format: Blu-ray
    "The Mummy" receives a very nice look Blu-ray transfer for this new edition of the movie. Capturing the adventurous elements of films like "Indiana Jones" and injecting it into the basic story for the 1932 film "The Mummy", Stephen Sommers creates a terrific, enteraining film. For those interested in a synposis of the plot, I'll provide it at the end of the review because you've probably already seen this.

    The Blu-ray transfer looks quite good here with bold colors that more closely recall the original theatrical presentation than the DVD. The image is crisp and while there's evidently some digital noise reduction applied, Universal hasn't completely cleaned away all the film grain which is a good thing because when that's done you actually lose sharpness and clarity (it is restored with a loss of detail via Edge Enhancement like the recent reissue of "Patton" which went overboard with digitally cleaning up the film). The best thing that Universal could have done here was to leave the grain intact and dispense with the Edge Enhancement. I suspect that the same source was used for the Blu-ray as was used for the HD-DVD edition but that the Edge Enhancement is more transparent here because of higher resolution.

    What does all of that mean? The film looks extremely good but could look brilliant. Still, on the whole this looks much better than the DVD edition.

    The extras are still presented in 480p (which is standard DVD definition)so be aware those haven't been updated. However, Universal has made this a U-Control disc where you can customize the extras as you watch the film (something developed for and carried over from HD-DVD). You do get the ability to watch the visual commentary/extras while watching the film.

    "The Mummy" is one of those unique movies that really delivers in all fields. It's a rip-roaring adventure in the vein of the Indianna Jones films, while incorporating chills and humor into its story as well. It has all the basics of the 1932 original version of the movie, but this version is much peppier, much more entertaining, and takes on both a serious and a comedic approach. This, combined with the use of cutting-edge special effects and a knockout cast of actors, make the movie a prime example of typical summer fun that turns into a lot more than just that.
    Borrowing the plot of the old movie, the high priest Imhotep is condemned to forever be cursed for having a torrid love affair with the Pharaoh's mistress, Anck-Su-Namun. He is given a ritual burial, which involves being buried alive in a coffin full of flesh-eating scarabs. This gives the movie a chance to show itself off as fashionable horror, not going into the extremely graphic details while giving us slight chills in the spine. This will carry on throughout the rest of the film, which is one of its better aspects.
    Moving ahead in the film to the 1930's, Rick O'Connell, a roughneck who also has his charms, crosses paths with librarian Evelyn Carnahan and her gold-digging brother Jonathon, who has a map that leads to the ancient city of Hamunaptra. O'Connell agrees to take them there, and soon, it becomes a race of who will get there first to retrieve the treasure rumored to be hidden there. Upon investigating the interiors of the city, they come across a book, and soon they unleash Imhotep and all of his curses on the world. This is the point at which the movie becomes a race against time to stop the mummy before he completes the steps to becoming whole again.
