In Thebes, Egypt, 1290 BC, high priest Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) has an affair with Anck-su-namun (Patricia Velásquez), the mistress of Pharaoh Seti I (Oded Fehr). They kill the Pharaoh after he discovers their relationship. Imhotep flees, while Anck-su-namun kills herself. Believing he can resurrect her, Imhotep and his priests steal her corpse and travel to Hamunaptra, the City of the Dead. The resurrection ritual is stopped by Pharaoh's bodyguards, the Medjai. Imhotep's priests are mummified alive, while Imhotep himself is tortured, cursed and buried alive with flesh-eating scarabs at the feet of a statue of the god Anubis. The Medjai are sworn to prevent Imhotep's return.

1925 AD, in Cairo, Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) is discharged from the French Foreign Legion after he steals the Book of the Dead, a powerful artifact used to raise the dead. He is joined by librarian Evelyn Carnahan (Rachel Weisz) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah), who are searching for the lost city of Hamunaptra.

The group travels to Hamunaptra, where they accidentally awaken Imhotep. Imhotep seeks to regain his power and resurrect Anck-su-namun, and he will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.
