Archeologists Daniella (Brittany Goodwin) and Noah (Carter) have
accepted the employ of rich businessman Sager (David E. Cazares) to find a
lost city and within it a sacred stone, and apparently were too blinded by
the opportunities this seemed to offer to ever question Sager's motives.
Because while trying to get to the lost city, Daniella and Noah awaken the
mummies of Sebek (Shamel Hashish) and Reheema (Taylor Carter), eternal
lovers in ancient Egyptian mythology, who are reborn again and again -
only this time, Sebek comes back and wants to destroy the world. Thing is,
Sager knew about this, and knows the sacred stone will play a part in
this, and he plans to snatch the sacred stone, as it grants immortality.
Now Daniella and Noah are not as sure if that's a good idea, and they want
to stop Sebek from finishing the ritual that will trigger the apocalypse -
which puts them in the crossfire, on one hand there's Sebek, who has
supernatural powers and summons monster after monster to destroy the
world, on the other there's Sager and his goons who try to keep them from
sabotaging Sebek's ritual, and the only ace up their sleeve is that
Daniella has actually come into possession of the sacred stone - but that
works in their favour only as long as the others find out ...
all else, this is a fun adventure yarn. Sure, in scale it's several steps
below big budget stuff like the Indiana Jones movies which
more likely than not have been an inspiration, but taking this (and the
film's limited budget) into account, The Mummy Rebirth surely has
much to offer in terms of monsters, shocks, chases, shoot-outs, fights and
whatnot, and it does so at a pretty breathtaking pace, keeping the
audience well-entertained and at the edges of their seats throughout.
