Never trust a movie in which a character exclaims "here we go again", just as Brendan Fraser does 30 minutes into the third instalment of The Mummy franchise.

Pray that this is a franchise that's dead for good this time.

A movie series called The Mummy is naturally going to have a limited focus. Universal might have been better off focusing on the various adventures of Rick and Evelyn to give them a wider range of material. But they haven't, so mummies it is.

The makers of the wildly lucrative Mummy franchise are flogging a dead corpse ... the adventure that's been disinterred is more than a little whiffy.

It's a deafening, blinding department store Blu-ray demo reel that's spun wildly out of control...Tomb takes the franchise to a stunning new low."

obviously the low-grade stuff: users will get their fix but recognize it's been cut too thin, no matter how many bells and whistles were crammed into the mainframe.

How anyone ever thought there was more than one movie in the Mummy concept, I don't know.

Another enjoyable bit of high adventure and malarkey.

Not groundbreaking, but good fun.

A capable and highly watchable action adventure flick.

The possibility of a fourth film is alluded to in the screenplay, but let's hope the filmmakers decide to leave that one where it belongs -- in the crypt.

As we move from city to desert to mountains, the action gets more frenetic and increasingly silly, which is no bad thing in a Mummy movie.

It's usually advisable to arrive for a film before it starts, but if you happen to be running late for this enjoyably brainless blockbuster, do not worry.

Miscast, fumbled action sequences, flat humor, and one of the most disjointed and problematic scripts of a major movie this year

The often silly elements of the plot dilute the majesty of the Chinese culture which it traverses, and the childish nature of the magical elements dilute the film's appeal outside a narrow target audience of undemanding kids

I've really enjoyed The Mummy Franchise. Until now. By the end, even the most amazing stunt becomes a bit of a yawn

Dear fictional character Rick O'Connell, you can't roll your eyes about a magic knife being the only thing to kill a raised-from-the-dead emperor if you've already lived through two other unreal adventures.

If you are looking for mixed martial arts with a little magic thrown in, then this is the film for you. Otherwise, let me say I hope this Mummy is a wrap.
