Shaun Myburg: In the tradition of Indiana Jones, comes The Mummy. This is probably the most humorous version of the classic mummy tale, which is probably why it works so well. Brendan Fraser plays his role with enough passion for it to be believable, and with enough humour to prevent it from being another George of the Jungle role. Local legend Arnold Vosloo is eviley (spelling?) good as The mummy himself, while there is a great supporting cast to stand against possibly the best sci-fi film this year...next to Star Wars! This should be a big hit! Enjoy!
Andre Mes: A great film in the Indiana Jones tradition. Arnold 'Boetie' Vosloo is excellent as the evil Imhotep! Vat hulle, kerel!
Dion Scher: A nice swashbuckling Indiana Jones type movie. Highly enjoyable and good special effects. Recommended.
Robert Haynes: Average. If I was under 10 years old this big budget digital postcard of a 'horror' movie may have entertained me. Otherwise it was simply dead on arrival - the bandages should have stayed wrapped up !
Petro Kruger: Excellent and very scary.
Martin Wilding: Special effects and everything about the movie was excellent.
Craig Mackenzie: Absolutely brilliant! One of the best movies so far this year!
Stuart Mann: George of the Jungle in a slapstick-Horror film is the best way to describe this film. Had potential but multiple plot-flaws, terrible acting and ill-timed attempts at humour destroy what could have been a good film. The most obvious flaw in the story line occurs just after the irritating British chick gets taken away (at night) to be sacrificed and the 'goodies' jump down a convenient man-hole to escape from hordes of zombies and then appear in bright sunshine, in the desert in the next scene!? If you are under 10, have an IQ below 40 and/or rank 'George of the Jungle' in your top 10 movies of the millenium then go for it - otherwise steer well clear!
Joan Pelser: Absolutly great movie, one up for our SA Actors.
Marin Radisic: Great special effects.
Andre Swanepoel: Run of the mill action show, good special effects though.
Maya Antonella Malik: THe Mummy rules!
Diane Otis: This movie is teriffic, exciting, what more could I say, except Imhotep is gorgeous.
Maria Arias: Had great effects, but it wasn't what I exspected it to be.
Kylie McCullough: The Mummy was awesome & Brendan Fraser is so hot!!
