What a FUN movie
Horror movies are not my thing, so when a friend invited me to see "The Mummy", there was a great reluctance on my part.<br><br>But once the movie got going, it was like an Indiana Jones movie: well acted, well paced, well written, filmed well, and just a whole lot of FUN!<br><br>Brendan Fraser is wonderful as O'Connor, the been-there/done-that soldier who fought at Hamunaptra, the fabled lost city of the dead.<br><br>Rachel Weiz turns head as an innocent but smart librarian of ancient Egyptian antiquities, including the Book of the Dead.<br><br>All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable family movie although some very young children may find the mummy intimidating and scarey. For those viewers 13 and older, it's just FUN!

Fun for the whole family
A fun entertaining movie. Reminds me of the swashbuckler films of long ago. The story line can be a bit confusing but still great fun.

The "Ultimate" Way to Watch The Mummy
The Ultimate Edition of the The Mummy is great. I also never saw the movie, because I thought that it would be scary and graphic. I was so amazed when I finally saw it. The Mummy is not graphic with the special effects at all. It is a great story with great characters. The main characters, Rick and Evelyn, have this instand bond which only gets stronger throughout the movie. And John Hannah is fantastic as Evelyn's brothers Jonathan. He is great at comedy. The cast is excellent. You will be laughing and on the edge of your seat the whole time. What is so great about this dvd is the three choices of commentary: Brendan Frasier; Stephen Sommers & Bob Duscay; and Oded Fehr, Kevin J. O'Connor, and Arnold Vosloo. Stephen & Boby Duscay and Oded, Kevin, and Arnold give the most insightful commentary. You will find out lots of great tidbits and information on the movie. The Mummy was the first time I have ever watched a movie with commentary before. After seeing The Mummy and The Mummy Returns at least 5-6 times each, I wanted to listen to the Commentary. The commentary gives great insite into the making of the movie and the story of the movie. Another wonderful feature is the photo gallery full of great photos from the movie. One of the main reasons I made this purchase was because I liked the multiple commentaries and the additional special features. This dvd is definitely the "Ultimate" way to watch The Mummy, an exciting, funny, and adventerous movie. It is worth the price you pay. Enjoy!Read full review

I Love This Movie!
I absolutely adored this movie in the theater and bought the DVD when it first came out. However a couple of moves later and my copy was lost. I never owned the Ultimate Edition and cannot find The Mummy anymore on its own; it's always paired up with The Mummy Returns. The extra features on the Ultimate Edition made it well worth the purchase; I'm glad I lost my original copy because this one is even better. This should be on the shelf of every household. It's a great movie with drama and comedy mixed in with adventure and even a little history. Love it!
