Although the first moments lead us to believe we are in for massive mummy action, it in fact takes a good while to get to anything fully supernatural, allusions aside. In a slight comedic tone, the characters talk about curses, artifacts, do practical magic, tricks and jokes, unaware of the terror we, the viewers, are hinted at. They come out as strong and likable, able to fear or fight.
The sets are amazing. Highly textured, they feel authentic and contribute to claustrophobia. It doesn't take much more to make us believe we are in Egypt on some archaeological research site. They create an aura of mystery and adventure. The few action scenes are innocent and fun to watch. It doesn't hurt that the two leads are bozos who converse in a ping pong dynamic.
This is not a proper sequel to the more political 1932 The Mummy and the classic mummified monster is redefined. The creature looks good, with or without bandage, and reinforces a branding and design that somewhat originated from Dracula. The film is slow but not uninteresting. It is atmospheric and earns its intense third act because it generates suspense out of foreshadowing.
