This review is from: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
Other reviews have compared this to Indiana Jones but that really only applies to the first part. Adele Blanc-Sec is a beautiful young French reporter who has gone to Egypt to bring back A mummy. The reason? He may be an ancient doctor to the Pharaoh and may be able to cure her sister the victim of a tragic accident. There is also a strange subplot involving a pterodactyl. My issue was with the video. This is French film so the English was in subtitles but a syncing error caused two sets of captions to appear. One was current with events on the screen, the other was from the beginning of the movie. The movie was fun though and the heroine was like Indiana Jones in that she doesn't take any crap and rarely gets fazed by anything. A good rental.
