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.
"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.
Moviegoers who knowingly buy a ticket for "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" are going to get exactly what they expect: There is a mummy, a tomb, a dragon and an emperor. And the movie about them is all that it could be. If you think "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" sounds like a waste of time, don't waste yours.
I, as it happens, have time to waste and cannot do better than to quote from my review of "The Mummy" (1999): "There is hardly a thing I can say in its favor, except that I was cheered by nearly every minute of it. I cannot argue for the script, the direction, the acting or even the…
I wholeheartedly admit to being one of the very few who kind of enjoyed the third MUMMY film. For me, changing the setting from Egypt to China was pretty cool as it brought in a new and fresh story, some entertaining action sequences and delightful humor. Yes, not seeing Rachel Weisz is a real shame, the vast majority of the effects look laughably bad and it certainly lacks the quality and wit of the first film. I just thought it worked well for a safe and cheesy adventure flick. I prefer it more to THE MUMMY RETURNS honestly.
This film is SLIGHTLY better than The Mummy Returns, which is not saying much.
Probably deserves even less, if only not for the love of the first two films..
I finally caught up with this movie a full six years after its release.
I had put it off because frankly although I liked the first movie in this trilogy I didn't like the second.
Ropey CGI is one thing when used sparingly where necessary and while the first movie got away with it the sequel got too big for its britches and delivered an appalling final sequence with a plastic looking Scorpion creature and some ridiculously poorly executed effects leading up to it.
Still- visual effects were not its biggest problem - merely one of them.
I was put off the trilogy even more when Rachel Weisz was replaced in the third movie.
Still- Maria Bello is a fine,…
Swing and a miss.
I hate you Rob Cohen.
The opposite of The Mummy. Just really, really shit.
Excessive in everything except it's quality The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor single-handedly has already ruined 2014 for me. No point living the rest of it, I've watched this again. Might as well just kill myself here and now to stop myself watching anymore pieces of mummified shit.
