Chinchilla News - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

A sur­prise box-of­fice mon­ster, Stephen Som­mers’ spooky sand ’n’ shovel romper owes a great debt to clas­sic Satur­day ti­nees and the In­di­ana Jones films A beau­ti­ful and rainy Egyp­tol­o­gist (Rachel Weisz z) and her cow­ardly brother (John Han­nah) make a deal with a ne’er- do-well ex­plorer (Bren­dan Fraser, left) to dig up a cursed an­ci­ient site, but they awaken an an­cient mummy (Arnold Vosloo) in the process. What makes this genre film spe­cial is he sheer sense of fun the cast ex­ude, the fan­tas­tic and well integrated ef­fects and the break­neck pace.
