Brendan Fraser is King of the late late 80's to mid 90's type of action/adventure film for the whole family to enjoy. There's no blood, no real violence but good clean enjoyable fun with great special FX.
The story makes fun of itself by aknowledging the orginal book and by saying that he was documenting real facts and so off go our trio of adventurers to find out. From there its non stop action and some cheesey dialogue but that's what family adventure films are all about.
The 3D glasses are fun to try but technology hasn't really came on leaps and bounds but its a worthwhile watch once or twice just to say you've done it and some of the 3d moments are very well done - if not the best 3d effects I've seen.
Overall its silly but its fun and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Fans of The Mummy films and the latest Indy film will feel right at home.
