Editorial Reviews

The third film in the The Mummy series freshens the franchise up by setting the action in China. There, the discovery of an ancient emperor's elaborate tomb proves a feather in the cap of Alex O'Connell (Luke Ford), a young 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 La. The O'Connells barely stay a step ahead of him (climbing through the Himalaya mountains with apparent ease), but the action inevitably leads to 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, and Liam Cunningham, the unexpected appearance of several Yeti, and a climactic battle sequence that is nightmarishly weird but compelling. On the downside, the charm so desperately sought in romantic relationships, as well as comic turns by John Hannah (as Evelyn's rascal brother), is not only absent but often annoying. Rarely have witty asides in the thick of battle been more unwelcome in a movie. Rob Cohen's direction is largely crisp 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 Keoghbr>

Product Description

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!”

2.0 out of 5 stars I love the series, but..... January 5, 2009
...the ball was dropped on this film. Someone in Hollywood believed Brendon Fraiser and Jet Li in the same film would miraculously make this a winner. That someone should lose his job.

Synopsis: Ancient Chinese warlord is reawakened (along with 10,000 Terra Cotta warriors) to conquer the world. And there are Yetis....

The first two movies in the series were fantastically entertaining. You had action, emotion, love, despair, and discoveries of a linked past that made the movies engrossing. They had excellent scripts, beautiful effects, and acting that made it look real. I watch them over and over. This dog...well, at least I watched until the end.

Whoever cast this movie screwed the pooch. Fraser, as Rick O'Connell is, of course, excellent. I love the gung ho balls ahead character. He IS the character. In fact, he is the franchise.

Rachael Weisz declined to return citing problems with the script. Boy did she make the right call. So Maria Bello is cast as Evy. Dear God In Heaven. what where they thinking! Where Weisz played Evuy with emotion, perfect timing, and a boatload of sex appeal, Bello is a block of freaking wood who phones in her part. She has NO fluidity, no sense of timing, and not a trace of sex appeal. In fact, a block of wood could have done a much better job.

In the 2nd film, The Mummy Returns, the son, Alex, has a very strong `proper' English accent and typical `Brit' attitude. In this movie, Alex (Luke Ford) has NO trace of accent or his English upbringing. He plays the role like a young John Wayne, as if he was raised in Arizona. It totally fails.

Jet Li as Emperor Han...well, I loved him in Lethal Weapon 4, Unleashed, and The One.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (Widescreen) January 6, 2009
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (Widescreen) is the third movie in the series and it is painfully bad. The plot is a joke. Bredan Fraser phones in a lame performance and the replacement actress for his wife try as she might the chemistry is just not there. The first two movies were full of fun, wit and good adventure. This move is nothing short of a travesty. Pointless violence, a plot written by Dr Nick Riviera from the Simpsons or maybe even Homer himself, shoddy acting. I was so disapointed considering that the first two movies are good enough to watch again and again. This one I will avoid att all costs. 1/5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing November 12, 2008
By Matt W.
This movie was a big let-down. I LOVED the first two Mummy movies in the series and could watch them over and over. This one was written so bad that the lines could be laughed at throughout the entire thing (and I don't mean the comedic lines). The wife is a different person and is awful, son talks like John Wayne and is too old compared to the years that went by, and Jet Li was barely in the movie/had any lines. The special effects in this movie were mediocre in 1995 and that's saying something. The story of it completely broke off from what it was in the first two. The wife has no connection to her past like in the second one whatsoever. I would not recommend this to anyone that loves the first two. If you don't want to ruin the series and have not seen this movie, then don't even think about watching this. I have never been so disappointed in a movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't have been made. March 30, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Without Rachael Weisz, this movie shouldn't have been made period. I was so disappointed. It's completely obvious to me that if Weisz refused the script, you either change it to her satifaction, or don't make the stupid movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Retread; The Mummy Series Deserves Better March 13, 2009
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor / B001HQZJMU


I love The Mummy series, but this addition is simply terrible - a lazy retread of of its predecessors in hopes of wringing a few more dollars out of this franchise.

Tomb of the Dragon Emperor seems one of those Hollywood movies devoted to making marriage look as pleasant as a root canal. Rick and Evie have stopped being passionate soul-mates who carefully balance their exploratory endeavors with less dangerous, but no less interesting pursuits (as in the second Mummy movie) and have, instead, been turned into the stereotypical empty-nest drudgery marriage. Evie no longer manages museums and attracts the praise of the historical community - she writes historical romances where she (disturbingly) has re-envisioned the most horrifying moments of her life as sexually exciting events. Really, my gorge rose when Evie tried to make the scene where she had been tied down next to a writhing, rotting mummy with a dagger poised over her heart as an erotic game to entice her tired husband to bed. Evie doesn't need an adventure - she needs counseling.

(Or perhaps it is the director who needs the counseling - the odd sexual connotations keep coming over and over through the course of this movie. Alex (a grown man now) confesses to his mother that he is not a virgin and she brightens in relief and asks chirpily "How many?" partners he has had, and seems positively panting for details. And Alex and his dad, Rick, spend far too much time arguing that "size matters" when it comes to...guns.)

Once the marital bickering is over and the action starts, we are treated to a lame, lazy retread of the first two movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars really like the mummy movies
This is another great Mummy movie. I like the whole series. Family-friendly, fun action films. They aren't Oscar winners or classics, but they are enjoyable. Get some popcorn.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, it is campy
It is just as bad or good as the others of the Mummy series depending on your taste. As of the date of this review the digital copy code still works.
