The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Rick O’Donnell (Brendan Fraser) returns for third Mummy movie. This time he’s in mystical China, facing the resurrected Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) and his undead army. Joining him again is his wife Evelyn (Maria Bello, replacing Rachel Weisz), her brother Jonathan (John Hannah), and Rick’s son Alex (Luke Ford).

Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh) to spend eternity in suspended animation, the Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have been entombed in clay, and have otherwise become known as the Terra Cotta Army. But then Alex unwittingly unleashes them again upon the world.

Criticising The Mummy films for being overblown effects-drowned nonsense is pointless. It's like slamming fish for smelling fishy. They are what they are. But within that remit there's scope for genius and potential for myth-making. Remember, Raiders Of The Lost Ark could easily have been an exercise in throwaway crap.

Strange how dreary it all is, and how tired Fraser seems.

The new Mummy is, how can I put it? Just freakin' awful.

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

Though the new film has some good things, it does not have enough of them to make the third time the charm.

Too much of the proceedings are silly rather than horrifying, with the nadir being the appearance of some particularly athletic Yetis who briefly pitch in to lend a hand.

It's a damn shame when the dreaded third leg in the franchise feels like a pale imitation of an already pale imitator.

Competent, but so utterly bereft of any memorable moments that it becomes a bit of a bore. Perhaps it's time for a reboot – guy wrapped in bandages, shuffling around a pyramid, scaring people. You never know, it might just work.
