    Mummy Revisited

    Forget what you learnt in school. Mummies are now also found in China. Leave your brains at the popkorn counter and enjoy the ride. Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Evelyn (Maria Bello) O'Connell are leading their normal lives in English countryside, when their adventure Value Added Services are summoned to take a precious consignment to China, where their son is on a secret mission to unearth a Chinese Emperor, who was cursed by a witch, Zi Juan (Michelle Yeoh) to rise only when the O'Connell family comes their way. Their is a Chinese General, too...who for some unknown reason trusts in the Emperor long dead to bring back glory to China and rule the world. While the Emperor himself was wronged by one of his Generals (General Ming), who dared to love the witch, he wanted for himself. The witch went into hiding, guarding the pool of eternal youth, along with her daughter Lin for 2,000 odd years, which will give the Emperor immortality. So, from the graves, the Emperor races to the Himalayas and the O'Connells follow with Lin, the daughter of Zi Juan as the guide. In the end, the Emperor goes back to his grave and young 2,000 yr old Lin falls in love with twenty something Alex.

    Though, parts of the film could have come from any of the other similar Hollywood flicks, it will still keep you interested for different reasons. Obviously, I missed Rachel Weisz and my friend kept wondering how could Brendan Fraser have such a grown up son. Some of the scenes, where dead soldiers (read skeletons) are summoned to war, and their body parts keep falling and they try to assemble them also reminds you on Pirates of the Carribbean and are not really funny, except for the age group, who are watching these kind of movies for the first time.

    Watch it for mindless fun and just to keep your record intact, if you watched the other two Mummy movies and are curious to know, what happens next. Though, even if you haven't watched those two, you won't find any problems adjusting with the weak story line, where CGI fights CGI. Obviously, the movie could have done without the Yeti's, who looked like King Kong in white and joined the good to fight the evil in a well concerted effort. Hmmm...after all, Mummys don't follow any script
