Review of film: “THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR” -- Daddy & Mommy fight the MUMMIES again!

Review of film:  “THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR  --   Daddy & Mommy fight the MUMMIES again! =   

                                       [ RATING:  8 of 10 stars ] 

Date Rated: Aug 6, 2008 | Rel. Date: Aug 1, 2008 =

BRENDAN FRASER has had a good (& profitable) time fighting MUMMIES (in 1999 & 2001). He’s back at it again (with his wife played by MARIA BELLO & his son by LUKE FORD) in this 3rd installment, based on artifacts found in the tomb of a powerful Chinese emperor (played by JET LI)...

...  MICHELLE YEOH plays an immortal who (assisted by her daughter) works with our heroes to try to stop the resurrected Emperor from gaining his full powers...

...  The plot is somewhat thin overall, and yes, there’s a lot that’s fairly silly & unbelievable— but, this is about mummies after all, & the sets & SPECIAL EFFECTS and action scenes are often TERRIFIC, making the film a quite enjoyable popcorn-infused experience for me.
