This was my first ever scary film, age 10 and on a monochrome TV set. The mummy always scared me the most of all the other horror characters. I had this on VHS years ago and promised my self a DVD copy one day. It has all the old classic plus points and good plot well acted as well as all the nostalgia. I am very happy with my purchase.

Stephen Sommer's 1999 action-adventure flick The Mummy is a loose remake of the 1932 film starring Boris Karloff.

The year is 1926 and we follow American treasure hunter Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) who leads librarian and amateur Egyptologist Evelyn "Evy" Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) and her con-man brother Jonathan (John Hannah) to find the mythical City of the Dead, Hamunaptra. What they don't know is that high priest Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo)'s corpse is buried there. Due to his sacrilege he was cursed and buried alive 3000 years ago. When Evy accidentally resurrects him he is endowed with supernatural abilities and craves only to resurrect his love Anck-su-namun (Patricia Velasquez) even though it could destroy the world.
Unlike its 1932 counterpart, this film is a wacky summer blockbuster with a mix of action, horror and humor. In the original Imhotep was a tragic character while here he's a loud, bombastic villain portrayed menacingly by Vosloo (though he does lack the immense presence of Karloff). Rick is essentially Indiana Jones without the books (think Nathan Drake from the Uncharted game series) and pulls off his bits well - humor, charm and action.
Score: 4/5

Video quality is high and even though you hardly see any grain the detail is still unbelievable. The colors are vibrant and the shots of the Sahara desert are breathtaking. The visual effects still work - especially Imhotep's CGI rotten-corpse form.
Score: 5/5

Audio quality is something I can't really judge properly since I don't have the right sound system but on a stereo HD-TV it all sounds great - especially Jerry Goldsmith's beautiful score.
Score: 5/5

Extras are aplenty. You have a documentary about the 1932 original, another about the visual effects and many more. You have a "Visual Effects Breakdown" feature which shows the development of VFX for several key scenes. Then there are three commentaries: First is by Director/writer Stephen Sommers and Editor Bob Duscay; the second is by cast member Brendan Fraser and the third is by cast members Arnold Vosloo, Kevin J. O'Connor and Oded Fehr.
Score: 5/5

I highly recommend this to fans of the film and action-adventure films in general. Even if you already have the DVD this is a repurchase that you must own if you have a Blu-ray player.

This film is brilliant and doesn't really loose its appeal over time. I had the original on VHS so wanted the DVD to replace this. Amazon are brilliant with delivery and this was no exception. I have enjoyed this film many times since and it is an amazing price and easy to find on Amazon

A classic! Good fun to watch shame it's again part of amazon video which is an absulote bump. Pay for prime but half the movies aren't included.

Great Vid. Opted for pre-owned ( a smart way to build a very cheap but huge DVD collection). Mine came from my preferred supplier Zoverstocks - very fast, efficient and reliable. High adventure and fun (if you have a couch to hid behind!) Highly recommended.
