A three thousand-year-old mummy, ancient curses, flesh eating beetles, and an endless sea of sand are a few of the obstacles Brendan Fraser must overcome in the movie Mummy. In this Indiana Jones type film an adventurer named Rick, played by Brendan Fraser, travels to an Egyptian city on an archeological dig. Rick and his entourage are competing against a group of grave robbers to be the first to discover the City of the Dead. While Rick’s group is looking for the Book of Amon-Re , the grave robbers find a sarcophagus, open it and awaken the mummy. The bad guys start running and one of them falls down so hard his glasses fly off. As he gropes in the dirt searching for his glasses, the mummy grabs him, plucks out his eyeballs and puts them in his own skull. So much for the wisdom of the ages – he took the eyes from the guy with the worst vision! In continuing his search for spare body parts the mummy finds Evelyn, a member of Rick’s group and kidn aps her with hopes of using her to revive his forbidden lover. (No, this isn’t a love story.) Rick finally locates the book that will put an end to the curse of the mummy. This is a fun movie full of adventure, action, thrills, horror, and even some funny one-liners. My only complaint is that the plot is so predictable both the mummy and I could see where it was going. I give Mummy a B rating – That’s a wrap.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
