The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
A New Evil Awakens.
The third installment in the Mummy franchise takes archaeologist Rick O'Connell to China, pitting him against an emperor from the 2,000-year-old Han dynasty who's returned from the dead to pursue a quest for world domination. This time, O'Connell enlists the help of his family -- including his wife and son -- to quash the so-called Dragon Emperor and his abuse of supernatural power.
The only film that has ever made me walk out of the cinema. It almost made me walk out of my own house..
Brendan Fraser's Rick O'Connell had a charm about him in the two previous "Mummy" films but this was quickly dispensed with and descended into a CGI fest, not a particularly good one at that.
Another tomb,another mummy, but no Rachel Weisz. Boo hiss. It's overblown and a little too predictable and even with Maria Bello taking over from our Rach it's boring beyond belief. Dodgy CGI aside the thrills just aren't there. And their son is as annoying as he was as a kid in the second film. Rob Cohen should have stuck to producing as his directorial cv reads like a car crash. Unlikely there'll be more of these films and they should have stuck with just the two.
The Mummy doesn’t return in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor but Jet Li’s Emperor, more specifically, you guessed it, Dragon Emperor serves as the big bad in this final (?) instalment.
To be honest this wasn’t less entertaining than The Mummy Returns, the utterly confusing thing is that the filmmakers decided to repeat the mistakes that made the initial sequel less compelling than The Mummy though.
I’m fine with the story being relocated to China and names like Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Wong and Jet Li (well the last one not that much) brighten up my mood, but the now adult son of Rick and Evelyn gets more annoying and the fuckers just couldn’t resist to make some CGI…
"Here we go again..."
Who needs Rachel Weisz?
Who needs decent special effects?
Who needs an engaging plot?
Hell, who even needs a fucking mummy?!
I kept waiting for Nicolas Cage to make an appearance but even he didn't want to appear in a film this bad.
I hate you Rob Cohen.
The first Mummy was good. This was terrible. Hardly any of the original cast appeared and it felt like a totally different film series.
When one of the actors doesn't return to reprise a role it must mean something. That's what I thought when I first saw it and felt the same again. Boy, they didn't bother with the plot, did they? They just thought "let's just make all things convenient, keep them moving and throw some action scenes". For me it is the worst of the 3 movies.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Cuando la ví con 15 años, me resultó entretenida, y ahora que la he vuelto a ver, me he dado cuenta de lo equivocado que estaba.
Las película no es que solamente lastre unos efectos especiales y CGI cutres (superando al escorpión de la segunda parte), sino que encima el actoraje en general es deficiente, sobre todo Jet li (que incluso para ser un actor pésimo, lo hace aún peor en esta película), que está ahí para hacer bulto y poco más, dice cuatro cosas, se convierte en yeti, dragón, luego explota, y se acabó (y todo en el mismo ratio de cutrez), y eso que es el villano principal en el que se desarrolla toda la película. El ritmo…
It isn't funny. It isn't good. It isn't anything.
It didn't have any of the spirit of the first film. The second film, flawed as it was, at least felt like a fun movie. The third film was just really, really forced and repetitive.
To top it all off, I sincerely think I liked Alex better as a little kid in The Mummy Returns than I did as an "adult." And it wasn't even just that the character was an idiot, it was that the actor really seemed like he had no idea what the hell he was doing.
I had extremely low expectations for this film and it couldn't even meet those.
Besides the fact that the movie lacks a deeper and more original plot, the abscence of Rachel Weisz's presence sank it even more.
En ganske fin og underholdende action/eventyrfilm. Den er bedre end sin forgænger, og denne film rummer flere både sjove og actionmættede scener, og man keder sig ikke undervejs. Brendan Fraser gør det godt som hovedrolle!
Along with the loss of Rachel Weisz, the series seems to have lost it's level of entertainment and quality (and the son character somehow lost the British accent from the second film to become strongly American, and thus more strongly O'Connell's son as opposed to Evie's). Maria Bello tries her best as advice but her Evie is somehow more bright than Weisz's Evie and this Bello ultimately does not succeed; ultimately neither does movie.
Like Indiana Jones Meets the Crystal Skull, this film is really weighed down with its obligation to give screen time to every member of the family (much like the last Mummy film I guess). Not only does it stop its central hero from doing all the cool stuff, it also stops you, the audience from enjoying the film because you're forced to follow five characters running about kicking ass with such co-ordination it almost plays out like ballet.
Can you imagine Raiders of the Lost Ark with Marion playing a more hands-on role, Mutt the son doing half of the stunts, and John Hurt cracking funnies at strategic moments? The problem with this and Crystal Skull is they no longer…
The movie that really didn't need to happen. Has one fun sequence and a whole lot of face-palming.
