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.

The whole thing, despite its decent start and $100 million, looks a bit of a mess to me. An entertaining one, no doubt, for those who love the franchise, but a bore for those who don't much care but would have preferred a more well organised film

The Mummy franchise now really is dead, dead, dead. It is so dead, it could win gold at the Dead Olympics, establishing a new British and Commonwealth record in the 400m decomposition event.

It's no masterpiece, but for good-natured escapism, the latest Mummy adventure gives Indiana a run for his money.
August 8, 2008
Making the farcical tenor of the recent Indiana Jones film feel like a paragon of dramatic and archaeological integrity, this phoned-in action threequel doesn't even have the good grace to deliver on its title and feature any mummies

I was never a fan of the first two, but those are masterpieces compared to this clunk 'o junk.

For a movie about the undead, this lacks any supernatural chills, and by the time its obligatory final showdown arrives, it seems as hollow as the terra cotta soldiers brought to life by CGI.

The best news about this clangorous clunker is that it may well have vanquished the Mummy franchise.

Remarkably, the plot has much in common with Hellboy II: The Golden Army, yet that bundle of fun has enough vision to make even its Barry Manilow interlude seem appropriate.

The story is no more than a thread stitching set pieces of increasing implausibility and ineptitude.

This Mummy movie is really two movies: a good adventure epic, with all the Chinese people, and a wan one, with O'Connells and the other the Westerners.

If movies were people, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor would be a total bimbo: nice-looking and kind of fun sometimes, but so unbearably empty and dumb that it doesn't matter.

Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is more of the same -- and yet less.
August 1, 2008
The new Mummy is, how can I put it? Just freakin' awful.
August 1, 2008
The action beats are the same as the earlier Mummys -- with planes, guns, digital creatures and vast armies of the risen-dead having at it. The missing ingredient here seems to be the fun.

This movie wasn't so much created as calculated.
August 1, 2008
The third installment of the Mummy franchise, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, is by far the weakest.
