Brendan Fraser and Jet Li star in the action-packed adventure The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor! When a 2,000-year-old curse is broken, a ruthless dragon emperor (Li) comes back to life with a diabolical plan to enslave the world. Mankind’s only hope against him and his legions of undead warriors lies with the courageous O’Connell family, who chase him from the dangerous catacombs of China, to the icy Himalayas and beyond. Featuring intense battle sequences, breathtaking visual effects and extraordinary creatures, it’s a thrilling journey that Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times calls “the best in the series!”

Like the same years Indiana Jones movie, this three-quel feels like its trying to pass the torch to Alex, in order to restart the franchise for a new audience, and it just tries too hard. Fraser is as good as ever, Bello is a wonderful replacement for Wiesz, but the chemistry is lacking between the leads.
Hannah goes full bonkers as Jonathan, cranking up the hilarious sidekick knob to eleven, and spoiling the charm he had in the previous entries, and the biggest mistake is that Li is totally wasted in his role. Had he not been CGI for the majority, it could have been a lot more tense, but it's a special effects movie, so what can you do.
But it's still fun, it's just missing a the chemistry between the cast that the first two had.
BUT Eve is a different women in this, which to you mummy fans like myself i found heartbreaking it just isnt the same without her. so it takes a few watches to be ok with it. its probably why its set in a different country also, because having a new eve in egypt would have deffinately been to much to handle as even this takes a while.
yet with all that i would still recommend this film because brilliant even with new characters ...
The cast also suffers a bit of a blow, though not as much as the direction. Fraser returns in a somewhat weaker role than before, and Rachael Weisz is unfortunately absent being replaced by Maria Bello who, whilst beautiful and talented, can't match Weisz's acting skills and her undeniable beauty. Arnold Vosoloo is not the eponymous mummy here and the legend is changed to be a chinese warlord who awakens to bring about the end of the world. Jet Li takes the role of the mummy here, and whilst his martial arts skills are brilliant he is vastly underused and at times looks like he doesn't want to be there. Another dissapointment is John Hannah's role that has been reduced to nothing more than comic relief, and because he has been saddled with some cheesy one liners and poor jokes he is underused and at times rather pointless.
As for the special effects, they have improved upon the Mummy and The Mummy Returns, but even then they appear too glossy and perfect, not gritty or realistic enough and the yeti's were not a good choice of creature to include.
Desite the problems i have listed above, this film is very entertaining. There is plenty of action and adventure, far off locations and some interesting sets. The final battle between a zombie army and terracota warriors is thrilling and a great climax.
See this if you enjoyed the first two but don't expect it to be as good as them. This 1 disc edition, for those interested, is not a good choice if you are looking for special features, they are extremelt poor. The steelbook edition is the choice for those wanting featurettes and the like and the luxury box set is even better if you're a die hard fan. If you're only interested in the film, get this.
This film could have been so much better than it was. The move to China is interesting and opens up a new range of mythology to draw upon but they barely scratch the surface with only Shangri-La, Yetis and the imperial quest for immortality being touched upon. As well as this, Rachel Weisz has been replaced by Maria Bello who despite a decent performance, doesn't really live up to her predecessor. The major problem with this film though is that Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh are terribly underused and barely get to live up to their usual great performances.
The film isn't totally without its plus points though as it does have some good special effects and the humour, although somewhat silly and unnecessary in places, still has a sense of fun about it. I should have given this film a lower mark than I did but the film is just too light hearted and entertaining to give it less than three and I would probably give it three and a half if I could. Overall, although the film isn't as good as the original Mummy film it is definitely better than The Mummy Returns or The Scorpion King.
bought a copy of the third movie to see where it took us.It's not necessarily a bad movie but nowhere near as good as the first two
although my daughter enjoyed it so all was not lost.
All sealed perfect
