A New Evil Awakens. Introduction As you can probably guessed, I thought I'd review all The Mummy films in one week as I've just watched them all from start to beginning, including The Scorpion King.

I watched this film on DVD at a friend’s house, and given that I quite enjoyed the first two films, I must admit I had high expectations of it. Story If you’ve not seen the first two films and want to see these in sequence, this review probably has spoilers. I guess the existence of the third...

ProNot much.

ConsAll of it.

The Mummy 3 I have always been a fan of the Mummy series, as you can tell from my previous two reviews and think the main reason why they were so good, wasn't because it was action filled, but because of the chemistry between Evie (Rachel Weisz) and Rick (Brendan Fraser). From the first film...

Don't get me wrong, I liked this film but what the hell was this director thinking!? This is the one film that should have been left out and for good reasons! Last that I knew when there was a mummy they were covered in bandages and all that like in the mummy and the mummy returns. It really...

ConsNothing special

It's very hard to create a good sequel movie. Not like any other movie, sequel movie has something very comparable, which are the previous volumes. People always wanna compare a sequel with it's previous, and they always want something better. From my point of view, you'll not gonna get these by...

Okay, First off I'm not here to bash the Mummy. It is one of my favorite film trilogies of all time. The first two films I felt were pretty decent attempts at action movies and I enjoyed paying to watch them. Then I heard that the Mummy 3 was being released...So I rented it...and reviewed it...

Product Information : The Mummy - Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Filled with spectacular action and sharp banter, THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR finds the dashing Rick and Evelyn O'Connell (Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello, who took over for Rachel Weisz) called upon for another world-saving adventure. The film opens in 50 B.C., when the ruthless Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) seeks to conquer one last enemy, death, and become an immortal ruler. But when the Emperor betrays an obliging sorceress (Michelle Yeoh), he and his army are cursed to spend an eternity in statuesque limbo. Fast forward to 1946, when Rick and Evelyn are struggling to adapt to their self-imposed retirement. But the fates have other plans, and soon the O'Connells are crossing paths with their somewhat estranged son, Alex (Luke Ford). While enthusiastically carrying on the family's tomb-raiding traditions, Alex has unwittingly brought the Dragon Emperor back to life. With the world in peril, the O'Connells must overcome their differences to prevent the Dragon Emperor from gaining immortality for himself and his army. Along the way they're joined by a mysterious young woman (Isabella Leong), a wily pilot, and a trio of Abominable Snowmen. Jumping from Shanghai to the Himalayas to the Chinese desert, director Rob Cohen (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY) takes audiences on a breathless adventure that continues THE MUMMY's love of quick wits, close calls and big battles. The result is a spirited romp that proves evil is no match against a family united.
