5.0 out of 5 stars "The Mummy Returns"- A fan-favorite gets a beautiful 4K release!
By TheoStix on October 1, 2020
2001's "The Mummy Returns" has long been a fan favorite for many, right along with its 1999 predecessor. They were the right movies at the right place at the right time. Two wonderful adventure romps loosely inspired by the classic Universal monster-movie that quickly found a massive worldwide audience.

Director Stephen Sommers' sequel once again follows Rick and Evelyn O'Connell, now with a young son of their own who shares in their adventures. When their old nemesis Imhotep is once again raised from the dead, it turns into a race against time as both our heroes and the dastardly villains try to make their way to a mythical golden pyramid which holds the key to commanding the deadly army of Anubis.

"The Mummy Returns" is very much a balls-to-the-wall action picture with non-stop special effects and increasingly farfetched set-pieces. It's the ultimate escapism movie- something that's just pure fun and spectacle from beginning to end. While the story is full of holes and the execution is often flimsy, that's not really the point. Sommers and his wonderful cast are just trying to entertain the audience, and in that respect the movie succeeds very well. It's a very easy movie to pop on and enjoy, and it makes for perfect rainy-day entertainment. Just like 1999's "The Mummy," it's a movie I've revisited many times over the years, and I plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

And if you're a fan of this film, the 4K release is definitely worth picking up! I'd previously owned the movie on both DVD and Blu-Ray, but this 2017 Ultra-HD disc is by far the current definitive release. The picture is a fantastic step up over the standard HD Blu-Ray, with an increased sharpness in many key sequences and some stunning HDR colors that practically pop right off of the screen. Right from the film's opening moments, you get a taste of what's to come, and it's just fantastic all around.

There is something of a tradeoff that I want to bring up though. As is sometimes the case, the increased resolution does make some of the dodgier effects stand out more. Including the infamous "Scorpion King" battle at the end of the film, which looks worse than ever. So be prepared for that.

Still, the typically beautiful image and the film's sheer fun-factor make this a must-own 4K release for me. The film typically looks better than ever, and the action comes fast and furious. It's great entertainment that is still appealing nearly twenty years later.

I'm giving "The Mummy Returns" 4K UHD release a perfect 5 out of 5. If you're a fan of the film and have a 4K TV, be sure to pick this up.
