From Amazon.co.uk

The third film in the The Mummy series freshens the franchise up by setting the action in China. There, the discovery of an ancient emperor's elaborate tomb proves a feather in the cap of Alex O'Connell (Luke Ford), a young archaeologist and son of Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and his wife Evelyn (Maria Bello, taking over the role from Rachel Weisz). Unfortunately, a curse that turned the emperor (Jet Li) and his army into terra cotta warriors buried for centuries is lifted, and the old guy prepares for world domination by seeking immortality at Shangri La. The O'Connells barely stay a step ahead of him (climbing through the Himalaya mountains with apparent ease), but the action inevitably leads to a showdown between two armies of mummies in a Chinese desert. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor has a lot to offer: a supporting cast that includes the elegant Michelle Yeoh, Russell Wong, and Liam Cunningham, the unexpected appearance of several Yeti, and a climactic battle sequence that is nightmarishly weird but compelling. On the downside, the charm so desperately sought in romantic relationships, as well as comic turns by John Hannah (as Evelyn's rascal brother), is not only absent but often annoying. Rarely have witty asides in the thick of battle been more unwelcome in a movie. Rob Cohen's direction is largely crisp if sometimes curious (a fight between Fraser and Jet Li keeps varying in speed for some reason), but his vision of Shangri La, in the Hollywood tradition, is certainly attractive. --Tom Keogh

2.0 out of 5 stars Curse of The Mummy! 28 July 2009
Format:DVD
The Mummy and The Mummy Returns were no masterpieces but they were fun movies. Filled with great action sequences, humor and brilliant characters/actors they were a joy to watch. Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is nothing like the first 2 films. It's not fun anymore it has just become silly. The main distraction for me was the departure of Rachel Weisz and her awful replacement Maria Bello. Weisz and Fraser had great chemistry but now with Bello on the scene that chemistry has disappeared. Luke Ford plays Alex (Fraser and Bello's son) and is also miscasted! Alex now has an American accent but was British in Mummy Returns plus he looks as old as Fraser! He lacks likability and to be honest is a bore! Rob Cohan takes over as Director and does a poor job. The film isn't as dark as the previous films and has now turned into a cheesy, dumb action flick with dire dialogue, poor acting and lazy direction. However visually on blu-ray it looks great! Let's just hope they leave the mummy to rest now!

2.0 out of 5 stars No story line - don't waste your time 15 Sep 2009
By sparkie
Format:DVD
If I could I would have given this film just 1 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed the first two Mummy films and was really disappointed in this one. Not only is there barely a story line, it never becomes clear why the two Chinese soldiers wanted to reawaken the emperor in the first place. There are no emotional bonds between any of the characters preventing the viewer totally from diving into the story. Maria Bello who replaces Rachel Weisz as Evie tries too hart to talk like Weisz' Evie but rarely succeeds. Instead she overacts most of the time. And for the chemistry between Evie and O'Connell - forget it! And it's nothing to do with the fact that they've been married 20 years and are in a bit of a rut professionally. It's just not there. Don't waste your time on this one, just the first two films again and enjoy. My copy of this DVD is going straight to the next charity shop.

1.0 out of 5 stars Abominable Snowmen!!!? Abominable movie!!! 30 Sep 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sensational visual effects but one of the worst movies I've ever seen. They seem to be making movies which are just visual effects. No plot complexity, sub plot or script. Brendan Fraser is truly awful. The plot is a derivative, monolinear thing with the same old same old... though there is a feeble attempt at a sub plot involving familial tension and love. The love interest is poorly developed and cringeworthy. In fact the scene with the most impact (and it lasts just two seconds) is where the classic 'evil asian woman' refuses to let go of her love even when he's being dragged into a grinder. Most scenarios were tired a long time ago. The bad guys can't shoot straight even though they're regular soldiers and did you ever wonder what happened to all those Star Trek extras who you just knew were there solely to get bumped off? Well they got work with this director. This is a childish movie but not for children. Save your money. I won't be giving my copy shelf room.

1.0 out of 5 stars a disgraceful adition to the series 13 Sep 2011
By Dhuw156
Format:DVD
i can't recall a film as bad as this, hugely disappointing
a lot of people will say this is good kid's movie or family flim well guess what theses films Aren't for families or kids they horror's FOR ADULTS! the first two were brilliant with horror/action/adventure with a bit of comedy mixed in but this fails on every level with it's kiddish humour
what I loved about first two is it horrors with skin being ripped off sort of stuff and brilliant action definitely for adults or older age group anyway to make the third one a kid's film is the ultimate Betrayal
the mummies wouldn't scare a five year old
the script is like something out of a children's TV show
terrible on every level compared to first two this is some sort of kids film don't waste your hard-earnt money on this it's not worthy to be in any box set near the other two.
maria belo is a good actress but isn't right for this bring back rachel weisz!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible, but doesn't live up to its promise 13 Nov 2008
By H VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I loved the original Mummy movie -it was rip roaring, silly entertainment that didn't take itself seriously and was all the more fun for it. I was excited for this one and approved the move from Egypt to China/the choice to create a new Mummy to keep the franchise getting stale.

Shame the end result IS stale. The dialogue's cheesier than ever but less witty and self aware, the fabulous John Hannah is demoted by the writers to the poor and unfunny comic relief with a set of really atrocious gags that are unworthy of him, and gamely as Maria Bello tries Rachel Weisz is missed. You no longer care about these characters as you did in the first movies - Rick and Evie are now just nauseating, their son has zero charisma and the new characters have no charm. The first Mummy, Imhotep, was tragic as well as evil, there was some depth to his story - this Emperor's just a one note villain. The much touted big fight between Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh is a let down, and their talents both acting and in martial arts are criminally underused. And don't get me started on the abominable snowmen.

There was so much potential in this story and with these characters/actors but I feel like the script and dialogue really let them down. It's a dandy enough way to pass an hour or two but it lacks the joie de vivre and self deprecating charm of the first Mummy movie.
