The Mummy
1999
**
Director: Stephen Sommers
Cast: Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo

In the 1920s an English Egyptologist and an American adventurer join forces to battle a cursed mummy who comes back to life. This archaeological adventure film (read: Indiana Jones rip-off) starts well and it looks terrific, but it turns dreadfully stupid and repetitive very fast. Followed by The Mummy Returns two years later.
