"Mummy- Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" - My Review

Friday, August 29, 2008


With high expectations set by the earlier two movies of the Mummy series, the third one just destroys it being only an insufferable action movie. It displays all the modern technological magic to create super natural effects but its misses the thrill and a mesmerizing storyline which was the main hallmark of the Mummy movies. We got some continuous action, action and action - there is no time to stop for realization, to think about the scariness. Brendan Fraser and John Hannah (Jonathon) are impressive as usual. Little Alex has grown up to a muscular one. There is no acting chance left for Jet Lee (The Dragon Emperor), unfortunately. And we also missed the former cute Sarah O'Connell, Rachel Weisz who is replaced by Maria Bello in this movie and doesn't impress me much. The story (We could say at least) leads to a mission to Shangri-La where the O'Connell family confronted with the Dragon Emperor and his quest for immortality. But trust me, you will never be horrified or bite your nails with dry lips waiting for somme heart stopping matter. In fact you never feel the pulse of the movie like the former ones. Here you ill find Snowmen and tri-headed dragons but will miss the essence. There’s nothing here. More than any major franchise in a long, long time, this sequel is completely dead on arrival.
