I rather enjoyed this sequel. It was very much a lot of the same from the first film, with the same characters, but it managed to add in other characters pretty successfully. Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are in this film accompanied by their child, played by Freddie Boath, who unfortunately becomes unwittingly becomes a target in this film.

Imhotep, played by Arnold Vosloo, is again seeking to return to the mortal world, but his performance is overshadowed by one of the side characters, Ardeth Bay, played by Oded Fehr. His role will become clear as you watch the movie, and he is a highly moral and ethical warrior.

While the writers have done well to come up with a viable plot, they have unfortunately relied too much on computer generated images. The merging of the story lines with the 'Scorpion King' was a touch of brilliance, but visually it came out looking tacky, and fake. Despite being a member of the cast, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, never appeared in the film, only his CGI counterpart did.

I will admit, some of the CGI worked great, and the battles were exciting but despite this, they struggled to make the movie 'believable', because of the scene with the 'Scorpion King'. All-in-all, it was an okay sequel. I'd certainly watch it again, but it was ultimately let down by the quality of CGI.

Rick and Evelyn are back. It's been 7 years since the events of The Mummy and they are now happily married with a young son, Alex, who has learnt well from his parents and following them around the world. When the mummified remains of Imhotep are brought to London and awakened, and Alex puts on a bracelet believed to have belonged to the Scorpion King and adventure starts that will involve the whole family.

There's some great special effects in this movie, and some very convincing creatures (that you really wouldn't want to meet in real life). Imhotep is even creepier this time around. The only character that wasn't flawless was the Scorpion King right at the end of the movie.

The characters are fantastic. You really feel for Rick and Evelyn as the have their son taken away from them and must try to follow him, hoping that he doesn't get harmed. The young boy playing Alex does a fantastic boy, alternating well between niave and scared to cocky and sure of himself.

All in all this is a great sequel to a good movie.
