A sarcophagus discovered in Iraq contains the mummified body of an Egyptian Princess. Soldier of fortune Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) seeks to capitalise on the finding only to be entangled in an ancient prophesy and imponderable terrors.
'The Mummy' passes through three phases. The first phase is pure adventure in the style of old Saturday afternoon at 'the flicks' serials. The second phase is an off the planet series of adventures. Finally the movie ends on a note of so many loose ends that sequels are clearly planned should box office returns justify.
