A capable and highly watchable action adventure flick.

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.

Although the formula remains much the same tanna leave concoction as before, there are a indeed few new wrinkles on the dessicated old corpse, just enough to make this pleasant popcorn movie for viewers seeking action and adventure.

...passable popcorn entertainment, it's just disappointing that they couldn't find anything new or original.

A crazy-quilt comic book with Michelle Yeoh as a sorceress, a tribe of Abominable Snowmen, a visit to Shangri-La, a three-headed dragon, and Hong Kong's most honored actor, Anthony Wong, as a nutcase general. Kids should love it
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

I can think of almost nothing good to say about the film, except that I enjoyed it immensely.

It's no masterpiece, but for good-natured escapism, the latest Mummy adventure gives Indiana a run for his money.

Where is Meryl Streep? After all, 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor' seems to have everything else in its mix, including a three-headed dragon (and) Abominable SnowMEN.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a cheeseball film that's hard to love but impossible to hate.

You don't believe it for a minute, but you may find yourself having too much fun to care.

Director Rob Cohen breathlessly paces his film with non stop action and the whole thing turns out to be some seriously cheesy B movie fun.

It doesn't take itself too seriously but it takes the action scenes seriously and there are some great ones.

Dragon Emperor doesn't exactly beg for a sequel (neither did The Mummy Returns, for that matter), but it'd be fun to watch the filmmakers try to outdo this dizzy spectacle in the arena of sheer ridiculousness.

The film's best quality is that it continues the Mummy tradition of mocking its own big-budget gratuitousness.

If you're willing to accept its flights of fancy and leaps of logic, it's a pleasant enough summer adventure with its heart more or less in the right place.

Now why did I like this movie? It was just plain dumb fun, is why. It is absurd and preposterous, and proud of it.
