Very violent, mostly in comic-book terms.

Rotten: It's loud and chaotic, jammed with effects that don't wow us precisely because they are trying so hard to wow us.

Rotten: ...a computer generated stinker of a dud.

Rotten: I came to scream with pleasure, but all I could manage was a pitiful, 'Whoa!'

Rick and Evelyn now married with a son, find themselves amidst the second coming of Imhotep. After their Son Alex is kidnapped by Imhotep as he seeks the Scorpion King (The Rock) Rick and Evelyn must pursue their sons capture, with the aid of the clues Alex leaves along the way. Aside from some unusual revelations in Evelyn and Ricks past, the movie concentrates mainly on the action this time out and runs a little short on story. I liked the evolution of Evey's character, now she's hardened up she makes a mean adversary, and takes part in some good battles. All in all, I enjoyed the experience and once again the visuals were more than adequate. If you enjoyed the first, then watch this one, its good fun and has some fine moments.

Erm, it?s a complete copy of the first film, nearly down to every frame! Not a very good one at that! Rubbish and lazy!
