The Mummy by Max Allan CollinsBased on the Universal Studios major motion picture starring Brendan Fraser!
Rick OConnell, dashing American and legionnaire, is in Egypt looking for a good time. His discovery of the Lost City of the Dead is a fluke--but to British librarian Evelyn Carnarvon its the archaeological find of the century. The city contains all the treasures of Egypt and possibly the secrets of life and death. Leading Evelyns expedition deep into the Sahara isnt exactly easy money, though, as Rick must dodge death traps, escape the jaws of man-eating beetles, and even duel a hook-handed mercenary. And just when hes caught his breath, a long ago evil returns from the grave--with a taste for human flesh...

Now, there are plenty of legitimate reasons for this, ranging from franchise fatigue on the part of audiences fed up with overblown shared-universe spectacles to lackluster direction from a man better known for writing and producing terrible movies than helming them. But by the end of The Mummy , I found myself harboring the sneaking suspicion that the critical derision heaped upon this film might have more to do with trying to teach the studios a lesson about ambition and avarice than with what actually takes place on screen — a Sisyphean task if ever there was one. To be clear, my assertion is not that The Mummy is a great film. But is it as bad as the outrage would suggest? There are also some very evident problems with the script, perhaps most notably its regressive gender politics.
A less scary  example. Dying is rough. All a pharaoh wants is a nice place to rest, surrounded by his millions of dollars in loot and valuable ancient artifacts, but there's always some joker that wants his stuff. So, the Mummy's gotta get out of his cozy sarcophagus and open a can of curse-ass in his shambling, arms-straight-out , wrapped-in-bandages, way. He doesn't really care if he's attacking genuine graverobbers or archaeologists who want to put him in a museum. He just knows that they are defiling his tomb.
