Tell a Friend

I spend way too much time at the theaters.
I'm a slave to the Hollywood Visionaries.  God help me.


Directed by Stephen Sommers

Written by Stephen Sommers

Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz,
John Hannah, Jonathan Hyde, Arnold Vosloo

My Advice: See it in a theater for the FX only

Rating: out of

I'm an avid Fraser fan. And, even in a movie that is all special effects and little more, he's amusing as a down on his luck adventurer, O'Connell. By chance he stumbles upon the Egyptian City of the dead, which harbors riches beyond compare. A twist of fate brings him to the beautiful librarian Evie (Weisz), who tries too hard throughout this tale, and her buffoon of a brother Jonathan (Hannah). They have in their possession what could be the final piece to the puzzle as to how to discover the aforementioned treasure. Together with O'Connell, they head for the hidden city to find their fortune, a really crappy animated corpse, and the worst dialogue you'll hear this year.

The supporting cast is distracting, but, thank the special effects Gods, you seldom notice. See this on the big screen if only to fully appreciate the CGI computer artwork that went into it. It merits little else.
