The most poignant moment is the farewell to Roosevelt, played one final time by Robin Williams. Otherwise, Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb is an instance of an idea stretched far beyond its potential.

Unfortunately even these innocent franchises can strain the tenuous chord of likability they have and I'm afraid that is what Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb has done.

Proving a third visit isn't always a good thing, "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" is a film that feels like it is stuck in idle.

Not only are a large proportion of the gags repetitive, but they're also delivered by actors who are simply phoning it in.

If only we cared more, this might still be OK, but we don't, thanks largely to a noticeable decline in the writing.

Despite its change of venue, "Secret" covers all the ground trod in the original but loses any sense of wonder.

Secret of the Tomb feels a little lightweight on the story end. Most of the narrative is pretty linear, and it feels even thinner than its 90-minute run time.

The feeling upon the closing credits is one of relief; with the plot nicely tied up, hopefully Shawn Levy gets the hint and finally moves on to try new things with his career.

If you keep it busy enough, people won't notice how slapdash the plot is.
January 24, 2015
...sporadically entertaining yet ultimately disappointing...

It's hard to imagine a more wearied looking ensemble this year than these folks.

The movie is dedicated to Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney (who also makes a return appearance), which isn't a bad way for a franchise to go out.
December 25, 2014
A tepid, sedate, snoozy affair, giving none of its famous people in the supporting cast much to do at all.
December 24, 2014
Given the themes explored, and the potential in the enchantment coming to an abrupt end - this picture should be more poignant and heartfelt than what transpires.
December 22, 2014
"Night at the Museum" was always the best when it was closest to complete anarchy, tapping into the zippy, good-natured malevolence of filmmakers like Joe Dante, but here that energy is gone, replaced by a kind of sleepy noncommittal attitude.
December 22, 2014
Send-off for an uber-bland family franchise that has never really embraced the anarchic spirit of its Toy Story-riffing high-concept.
December 21, 2014
Unfortunately, the Lancelot scenes are few and far between, leaving the rest of the picture to CGI displays, arcing streams of monkey urine, and false sentiment.
December 21, 2014
Somewhere amid the rictus grins of this cynical seasonal offering there lurks the spectre of the old-school variety show in which tradition demands that you applaud a string of famous people for simply turning up, rather than actually being any good.
December 19, 2014
What began as a fun and unique high-concept comedy with 2006's Night at the Museum is by this third installment bereft of life and creativity.
December 19, 2014
This really is a hopeless project that makes little of the original film's few good ideas and adds no new ones worth enduring.
