In this post we will examine the ways in which Imhotep upholds gender stereotypes near the end of the first film.

Before the climax of the film we see Imhotep corner Rick and Evelyn. He tricks Evelyn into going with him. Imhotep lies to Evelyn saying he will spare those in her group if she simply comes with him. He’s manipulative of the only female character present and dominant of the male protagonists.

Imhotep upholds gender stereotypes by being dominant over the other characters as well as intellectually manipulative of the female protagonist.
