In 1999, director Stephen Sommers began a partnership with Universal Studios to develop their long-dormant Universal Monsters franchise and reboot one of its least memorable installments; The Mummy. Gone is the suspense and dread and replaced with action adventure as we follow an Egyptologist, her troublesome brother, and the roguish hero who shows her the way to a cursed tomb. Few audiences and critics were looking forward to this film and even fewer could have forseen how successful it became, spawning two sequels along with spinoffs. But does the film still hold up or should it be long forgotten in the sands of nostalgia? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Christian Lee (The Internet's Dad) grabs some shovels to find out.
