Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The first official movie of August, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, arrives in theaters today and it's not off to a good start. It's been 7 years since we saw The Mummy Returns and now most people are saying this Mummy should've never been revived. Is it as bad as everyone is saying? Does it actually have any redeeming value? How is Brendan Fraser on his third time around? Is this the worst action movie all summer or is it actually entertaining? With The Dark Knight's brilliance still looming, I'm guessing that this is doomed, but we'll let the fans decide that. Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of The Mummy 3.
To fuel the fire, since I personally decided to skip seeing this movie at all, I'll leave you with this fitting excerpt from Brad Brevet's review on Rope of Silicon. "This film is inspired by the idea that a group of people should get in trouble over and over again and the only goal of the project is to get them out of said trouble until we all live happily ever after... A lot of Tomb of the Dragon Emperor could have been fun, but it all seems so uninspired... Rob Cohen may have finally proven he hit his niche with The Fast and the Furious and anything outside of fast neon painted Hondas is beyond his limits. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor should have never been made. It adds nothing to a franchise that was dead several years ago and should have stayed that way." Yep, it definitely is that bad!
What did you think of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor? Good or terrible?
