In THE MUMMY RETURNS, Rick and Evelyn O’Connell our have an eight-year old son (Alex). The archaeological duo, Rick and Evelyn O’Connell, are now investigating as parents. They have an eight-year-old son, Alex.
They discover the Barcelet of Anubis.
Other, less scrupulous, archeologists have awakened the High Priest Imhopet… and of course, he wants to rule the world.
In order to do so, Imhopet must possess the Bracelet of Anubis. The person with the Bracelet can control the armies of the Scorpion King.
Reflections: Mummy 2 is enjoyable, but not as good as its predecessor.
The character that I enjoyed the most was the adventurous, mischievous son, Alex.
A love affair goes wrong between the high priest, Imhotep, and the mistress of Seti, Anck-su-Namun. When the affair is discovered, Anck-su-Namun kils herself and Seti condemns Imhotep with an eternal curse.
Rick O’Connell discovers Hamunaptra, the City of the Dead, with an archaeological group. Evil spirits are disturbed, but he escapes with his life.
Evelyn Carnahan, a librarian wishing to become a renowned Egyptologist, is gifted by her brother, Jonathan, with a trinket he had stolen from Rick. Surprisingly, it contains a map to Hamunaptra.
Evelyn seeks the release of Rick from an Egyptian prison with his promise of leading them to Hamunaptra.
Then, as they say….
The rest is….
I truly enjoyed this movie!!
The one-liners throughout the movie left me enjoyably amused. (So much different than the innuendo-filled movies of today!)
The upstanding citizen of the year, the county’s snowplow driver- Nels Coxman, sees his life turn to its most sinister side when he discovers a drug lord has killed his son. He becomes a merciless vigilante to make right all the wrongs brought into his life.
Imagine the unimaginable happening in your life, and then trusting on your darkest of angels…
Miss Congeniality II has gathered the same characters for its sequel plus one new one, an FBI agent, Sam Fuller, in need of much anger management training.
As an overnight celebrity, Grace, Miss Congeniality, has to be removed from field work- the world recognizes her and is now interfering with the ability to do her job.
She is tasked with becoming the face of the FBI to improve its human relations’ face.
Sam Fuller is given the duty of being Grace’s bodyguard.
The drama takes off as Cheryl (Miss USA) gets kidnapped and Gracie and Sam are sent as the point men to the press. Grace, of course, has to be move involved in solving the kidnapping than the Bureau thinks she should.
Miss Congeniality II is an OK watch. Its humor is far more stilted than in Congeniality I.
I will enjoy watching Miss Congeniality I again in a year or two. If I remember, I will not follow it up by watching Miss Congeniality II.
