Ok, straight to the point…. Why? What on earth was Russell Mulcahy thinking when he decided that this was ever going to work? Aside from an all too brief appearance from Christopher Lee (though easy enough to explain if he’d actually been sent the entire screenplay) the thing is an ensemble of some seriously C-rated British bit-part actors who support eye-candy Jason Scott Lee as the visiting detective “Riley” on a desperate mission to thwart a curse that will release “Talos” (a Greek bronze man, methinks – but, hey ho!) and bring devastation to all mankind. The special effects seem to consist of lots of bits of bandage blowing about in an attempt to create some semblance of peril, or menace – or maybe just a draft? The dialogue is just silly and what Honor Blackman is doing here is anyone’s guess. Sorry this is just dross – and fans of mummy films (that’s me, too) ought to consign this to a place where even the book of the dead can’t help it.
Better than Brandon Fraser’s!
I’m absolutely surprised at all the negativity that this film is getting. My question is, what are they basing it on? Dimension Films, you made a big, big mistake not releasing this to theaters. You guys probably thought that you could use this to cash in on the success of “The Mummy,” with Brandon Fraser. Well, it would have been a good idea if this had ANYTHING whatsoever to do with that movie, but it’s completely different and stands alone. You guys were acting foolishly.
I actually found this film to be much better than “The Mummy.” While I immensely enjoyed the summer movie, I feel that it was more of an action/adventure than horror. This movie goes back to its roots: pure horror, and that’s what really makes it work.
Set in London, the film follows an American detective and an assortment of other characters as they battle Talos, a banished Egyptian sorcerer who whose body was never found in the days of Pharaohs. His wrappings must collect body parts and the heart of his reincarnated love in order to create it’s body and begin the Armageddon. He has to do it before the first five planets all align, and it’s a desperate race to stop him before he can.
First of all, how can anyone say the special effects in this film is disappointing? They are absolutely incredible…. The wrappings come to life and attack people, shaping into humam form sometimes and other times crawling on the ceiling like an overgrown spider. They are some of the finest special effects I think I’ve ever seen in a horror thriller. How in the world can someone say that these fx are bad? They are absolutely real and astounding….much more real than in the Brandon Fraser flick. And, unlike the former film, this one doesn’t use them to show them off, but they actually fit into the story and are not overused.
The storyline is great, too…. It manages to keep it down packed so it is easy to understand, and at the same time, it is very complex and it has many different angles to it. The ending is also a fine twist that nicely wraps the film up (no pun intended). Well anyway, I shuddered, and that doesn’t happen much.
The cast and direction are also high-grade. Jason Scott Lee is good as the detective Riley, who’s not sure whether or not to believe in Talos. Sean Pertwee is also fantastic as the odd cult-member who walks the thin line between paranoid and psychotic. I’m thinking Best Supporting Actor nomination for him. For the direction, while Fraser’s “The Mummy” relied on heavy stunts and over-the-top action stunts, Russell Mulcahy focuses more on the dark style, so it is a slow-moving, moody thriller with slick timing. He winged this one much like he did “The Shadow,” another greatly underrated film. Someone better keep their eyes on this guy….he’s likely to hit something big one day and get a lot of recognition. But anyway, that’s my prediction.
All in all, see “Tale of the Mummy.” It is superb and much better then the Brandon Fraser film. And even if you might disagree….it’s certainly worth spending 88 minutes of your life watching it.
