Movie Review: ‘The Mummy Rebirth’

Review by Caitlin Zeigler

Noah (Carter) and Daniella (Brittany Goodwin) are treasure hunters who team up with Sager (David E. Cazares), where they discover a tomb and unintentionally awaken Sebek (Shamel Hashish). Noah and Daniella realize this is bad and work on trying to stop Sebek, while Sager and his team want the treasure. Sebek gives Daniella a stone that can resurrect and defeat the dead, except him. He gives it to her because he sees her as the love of his life that he lost. Daniella uses the stone to fight the other monsters Sebek brings forth, but she and Noah still have to figure out how to stop Sebek. It is up to Noah and Daniella to stop Sebek from ending the world.

This film is bad. It’s not a guilty pleasure or campy or so bad, it’s good. It’s just an all-around terrible movie. There are about four decent actors, but then there is a guy who sounds like he’s reading his script carefully. There’s another guy who is probably supposed to have some type of Egyptian accent and he sounds southern and country. People wearing headwraps and the face tattoos that are supposed to be symbols are wearing them wrong. The symbols don’t even look like symbols. They look like made up squiggly lines.

The CGI is The Scorpion King level terrible. The plot was boring and practically ended on a cliffhanger and the mummy was the actor playing him in a really thick rubber costume. He didn’t look like a skeleton, but rather a man in a costume. He also had really gigantic fake hands. You should avoid watching this movie if you don’t want to waste your time. There’s bad and then there’s this film. Just go watch the other mummy movies. Those were good. This is not.
