Ten years have passed after the marriage of Rick O’Connell and Evelyn. Now they are happily living in London with their son. During their trip to ancient Thebes, they discover the bracelet of Anubis. This bracelet gets stuck on the wrist of their son, Alex. They have to take Alex to the Scorpion King’s Pyramid or Alex will face death at the hands of the bracelet.
Evelyn gets kidnapped by a cult that resurrects Imhotep. This cult is lead by a woman named Meela Nais who is the reincarnated form of Anck-su-Namun. With the help of Jonathan and Ardeth Bay, Rick embarks on a dangerous journey to save the lives of his wife and son.
This movie carries the magic of almost the same level of its prequel. If you think that sequels are boring then think again because this movie failed to bore me. Every single moment of this Egyptian adventure is filled with excitement and suspense. You are going to feel terrified during many moments of this movie but at the same time you are going to love it. The scene where Imhotep comes back to life and his resurrection ritual is being performed in from of Evelyn is one of the best scenes I have ever seen. You are also going to love the scene where some goons enter the train to claim their share from Imhotep and he sucks off their skin.
The visual effects, the sound effects and the editing is just excellent. The moment when the Imhotep troop and Rick party enters the Scorpion King’s Pyramid makes this movie extremely terrifying. Who expected the horrors of pyramids to be this much horrifying but indeed they were quite chilling. The emotional aspect of this movie is something which turns it into the biggest family adventure of the year. Not only are you going to witness the emotional rollercoaster ride of Evelyn and Rick but their craving for their son Alex when he gets kidnapped by Imhotep army is unbeatable. Evelyn’s pain when she enters her previous life and witnesses her father’s death is also perfectly picturised. Overall, this movie is truly marvelous.
