THE PLOT:


When Rick OConnell escapes the desert and the city of the dead, he is hired to lead a team back to the location. For there are countless treasures hidden in the city of the dead. Plus the remains of the evil Imhotep. Evy accidentally reads the book of the dead discovered by their rivals and releases Imhotep from death. Now he is on a quest to revive his dead love and rule the earth forever. For as the mummy he has the powers of the ten plagues of Egypt.

THE OPINION:

A very good remake of the 1933 classic, with updated effects and story. But I think it was wrong that the Madjai just attacked without even explaining what they were guarding. Then when Evy said they were crazy they should attack.
