Episode Recaps

Brendan Fraser is back, and everyone else from the 1999 cash machine The Mummy is too, behaving like impertinent moderns trapped in a venerable cinematic genre they’re not sure is worth their serious attention. This is a souped-up engine of action, noise and more-ness — more change-ups, more battle scenes, more elaborate mummy awakenings, and more visual references that recycle the familiar and recent, from Home Alone to Crouching Tiger. There’s also a piece of The Rock, who plays a resurrected warrior. C+
