In Thebes in Egypt in 1719 BC an evil priest has an affair with the Pharoah's mistress, who later takes her own life. As punishment the priest is destined to spend eternity mummified but undead. The only way for the curse to be lifted is if his body is released...
In the 1920s, a group of archaeologists led by adventurer Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) discovers the mummified body of Imhotep, an Egyptian priest who was cursed for falling in love with the Pharoah's mistress. When they accidentally resurrect him, the battle for survival begins, as the mummy begins to use his powers to reclaim his long-lost love. Director Stephen Sommers updates this classic Universal monster for the 1990s, using a dazzling array of computer-generated special effects. Fun performances from Fraser and Rachel Weisz add to the tongue-in-cheek Saturday matinee appeal.
...[Weisz is] seductive....Fraser gooses the movie with his deft comic timing...
