Review of: The Mummy Returns Overall Rating: 9 The Mummy Returns, sequel to The Mummy, is also an adventure tale in the vein of the 40's 50's swashbuckler movie. They really strike a nice balance between the action, comedy, and thriller moments. I absolutely loved the character Izzy Buttons. In this sequel they fill in the rest of the story between Anck-Su-Namun, Imhotep, Pharaoh Seti I, Princess Nefertiri, and the Madji warriors. They really do a great job with the Scorpion King which in turn left me wanting to know more about the story of that character. This is a delightful sequel film and a wonderful follow up to The Mummy.
