The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Movie Review (No Spoilers) – Fun and Carefree


I just watched The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor with my wife.

If you don’t take the film seriously, and just sit back and enjoy the rollicking non-stop action and comedy, then The Mummy will be a good watch.

It keeps the good-fun spirit, over-the-top sequences and visual candy of its predecessors. You start to realize the director didn’t intend for you to suspend your disbelief – he wants you to chuck it out the window entirely – when you see the kungfu monsters, shape-shifting antics, and undead battles.

If you’re looking for an original, un-cliched movie… Ha ha ha! Too bad for you. There’s even a tribute to/rip-off of Raiders of the Lost Ark in there.

If you’re watching it just to see Michelle Yeoh or Jet Li… You’ll get quite a bit, but they aren’t really the focus of the show (you’ll see what I mean despite Jet Li playing the main villain). But you will have some Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon reunion nostalgia.

If you want seriousness, drama and realistic action, you’re in the wrong cinema – Batman is over that-a-way. Otherwise, welcome to 2 hours of unthinking adventure!
