China. There, the discovery of an ancient
emperor's elaborate tomb proves a feather in the

archaeologist and son of Rick O'Connell (Brendan
Fraser) and his wife Evelyn (Maria Bello, taking
over the role from Rachel Weisz). Unfortunately, a
curse that turned the emperor (Jet Li) and his
army into terra cotta warriors buried for
centuries is lifted, and the old guy prepares for
world domination by seeking immortality at Shangri

a showdown between two armies of mummies in a
Chinese desert. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon
Emperor has a lot to offer: a supporting cast that
includes the elegant Michelle Yeoh, Russell Wong,

several Yeti, and a climactic battle sequence that

romantic relationships, as well as comic turns by
John Hannah (as Evelyn's rascal brother), is not

asides in the thick of battle been more unwelcome

if sometimes curious (a fight between Fraser and
Jet Li keeps varying in speed for some reason),
but his vision of Shangri La, in the Hollywood
tradition, is certainly attractive. --Tom Keogh

A New Evil Awakens

AdvantagesGreat storyline and excellent fighting scenes

DisadvantagesNo chemistry between any of the actors, doesn't have the real Evy in it

"...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. If you've read my two previous reviews you'll know that I watched the first two Mummys in order to go and see this at the movies with my girlfriend and her parents, so I was expecting quite a bit from it. I knew this wouldn't be nearly as good as the first two movies, mainly because Evy's character wasn't played ..." Read review

Time to put this one to rest?

AdvantagesDecent effects

DisadvantagesShould not have been done - see review

"...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 film counts as a spoiler anyhow! The film is a sequel to two previous films, The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. Unlike those two films, however, it takes on a new angle and has some significant ..." Read review

A New Evil Awakens

AdvantagesNot much.

DisadvantagesAll of it.

"...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, they managed to bring you into the film and the chemistry was just magic, as well as the added bonus of Jonathan (John Hannah). However this is where this film failed. Rachel ..." Read review

More of A Dummy

AdvantagesIt proves Stephen Sommers isn't as big a hack as previously thought.

DisadvantagesThe direction, the writing, the acting, the effects...

"...Chinese catacombs, he inadvertently unearths the dreaded Dragon Emperor and his army of ten thousand warriors. The fearsome tyrant had once laid waste to the eastern world but sorceress Zi Juan bound him and his soldiers with a powerful curse. But when he is awoken he again plots world domination with his undead army. These infernal fighters cannot be stopped by conventional means so Alex enlists his father Rick, his mother Evelyn and his Uncle Jonathan ..." Read review

Mummy 3: A new generation of trouble seeking!

AdvantagesFun action and adventure

DisadvantagesSome poor acting

"...be forgiven for momentarily overlooking the adventure rolic from director Rob Cohen: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. It is the third film in the Mummy series, and it has been a long 7 years waiting for this one to be made. Popular demand a high success rate for films revisiting past successes (Rambo, Rocky, etc) has pushed Brendan Fraser's Rick O'Connell to find more trouble in the mid-20th Century, and Cohen was only too happy to take a seat ..."

DVD 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.

Review [...]exotic locations, epic cinematography, and much spectacular crash and bang (Boston Globe, 29/10/2008)

[...]for good-natured escapism, the latest Mummy adventure gives Indiana a run for his money (The Times, 29/10/2008)
