Sound Off: The Mummy 3 - What Did You Think?

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

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?

    I walked out 30 minutes in. Got my money back.

    Well, I'll get through the bad stuff now: the editing was jumpy and made the action scenes more difficult to follow than they should have been, Jet Li hardly got to do anything, Luke Ford (who plays Alex) was bland overall, Jonathan felt unnecessary throughout the whole film, the jokes were mostly mediocre at best and painful at worst, and the whole film mostly felt rather dull. Though, something is preventing me from saying that this movie's total crap. The majority of the effects were pretty good, and Michelle Yeoh, for what little she got, was kickass. But it's Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello that really save this from completely sucking. You can see that Fraser is trying his hardest, and while at moments his boredom seems to get through, you come to appreciate his overall effort. And Maria Bello actually becomes a good replacement for Rachel Weisz, and she's probably the only person who's having fun throughout the entire film. She even has a few brief sparks of chemistry with Fraser. One last complaint: the final fight sequence was absolute garbage. The editing was some of the worst I've ever seen, and the effects work was painfully sloppy. And Jet Li is REALLY beating on Brendan Fraser, as if to get revenge for getting him involved in this movie. Overall, if you're a mummy fan, you may as well go, but keep your expectations in check. For everyone else, either wait to rent it or don't bother.

    I just watched and I think that it´s a great movie. As Brendan himself said, it´s not Shakespeare folks! Go and enjoy yourselves, empty your mind and more an hour and so, let your mind be part of something unreal and, after all, you´ll have some laughs (at least). The two firsts are the best (the first one the best of all), but this one is really cool. I totally agree with Andrew about Maria Bello being a good Evy. Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh were great. Well, I had a good time.

    until now everyone is on my first idea about this movie that chines - martial artist - Jet Lee - stone statues are not a good idea for a Mummy movie ... but there were some people who were against me in that time (month ago ) ... now let's we hear what they will say about it ;-) I may watch it tomorrow :-)
  • Tomica
    i just watched and this is movie is fighting with meet dave for the worst movie of the year. TDK must rules this weekend, and again and again and again!
  • KG(Kilogram)
    I have NEVER walked out of a movie early before. That was always my one rule. well, "I had to break my one rule last night"
  • Breach
    I havnt even seen it, but this so seems like a desperate attempt to soak up any residual dollars that may be left from the Mummy franchise.
  • Rick
    Evelyn was CRAP!! I missed Rachel W. as Evy... 1 (Best)... 2(Better)....3(Quite okay)...Not so bad.Yeah it cannot take down TDK thats for sure..lol
  • Will S. (Co. Springs)
    Brendan Frasier is just annoying to me. Drives me insane. Hated this movie with a passion. Definitely up there with Journey to the Center of the Earth as one of the worst movies of the year. I can't think of anything worse than those two.
  • Andrew
    #9, two words: Meet Dave.
  • Joel
    The acting from start to finish is limp. The filming is sloppy. The dialog is weak as well as the story and plot. Very, very, very far fetched, but in a disappointing way. C.G.I. is very unconvincing as well. It was painful to watch.
  • Phontsolo
    I usually don't fall asleep while watching a movie in the theater. But I almost did, several times. I wasn't expecting too much from this movie other than the special effects and those weren't even that great. When a big colossus is supposed to look real but looks 3D. That's not good. The first time we see Jet Lee get all muddy it is done pretty badly. Looks fake. There are some note worthy parts though. The dragon and snow big foots were pretty decent and some of the action scene were all right. And then there's the acting!! Cheesy all around. The snow big foots did a better job of acting than most of the cast. Is Brendan Frasier supposed to be funny? Because I'm not seeing it. Was the movie supposed to be funny? Because I'm not seeing that either. The actress that replaced Rachel Weiss's role was in my opinion, bad. Worst of all the movie was very predictable! One word: CHEESE.
  • Jon
    #9----Journey to the Center of the Earth was NOT a bad movie, I was pleasantly surprised simply by the fact that I enjoyed it. I expected it to be just mildly OK but I was entertained throughout and they did a great job with the 3D effects. I hope you've actually seen it. May not have been as good without the 3D, but it was FAR from being one of the worst movies of the year.
  • Spider
    I liked it! (This'll fuel the fire). Brendan was at his usual dingy best. Maria Bello stepped in as a spunky Evie. John Hannah was pretty funny. It was pretty much what I expected out of a "Mummy" flick. I know most will compare it to "The Dark Knight", but apples to oranges. Jet Li was good, although under used. The effects were good enough. Sure, many will hate the "new" Evie, others will hate Fraser, etc. But I had a good time at the movies. It's a pretty entertaining "popcorn" flick. That's my take on it!!!:)
  • Anita Surrett
    I am huge fan of The Mummy movies, especially the chemistry between RW and BF. To me having Evie replaced was too distracting and lacked that all important chemistry. Everyone just seemed to be trying to hard. It was a great movie other than that. Most importantly for me, my daughters, ages 7 & 8, LOVED it, but they too didn't like a different EVIE, and were actually excited about Peruvian Mummies. RACHEL come back.
  • Traylor
    I think this movie really kinda sucked. I wanted to leave as soon as I saw that Rachel W. was not in it. I hate sequals where the original characters are not re-cast. I also did not like the fact that "Rick" and "Alex" could have passed better as brothers, than father and son. I think it would have been better had they mad Alex a bit younger. I took my 5 year old daughter with me to see this because every time either of the other two Mummy's are on, she devotes her total attention to it. She said that she did not like this one as much as the first two. She didnt think the mummies were as good. Anyway, I think it would be best to save your money. i am dissapointed that i went out of town to a better theater than the one in my town to see this, and spent more than I would have had i stayed in town. it was really crummy. Really
  • Tak
    Should have waited till "The Dark Knight" wore off a bit. But I think that bringing "The Mummy" back was a much better idea then bringing Indiana Jones back. He's old now, and its just not the same watching your old hero OLD
  • Kyle
    I actually found this movie quite enjoyable. The special effects were limp for some parts, but the laughs were good, for what it's worth, and Michelle Yeoh was, like #2 said, very kickass. My biggest problem was that Rachel Weisz wasn't in it. Maria Bello is alright, but recasting is NEVER a good thing (Maggie Gyllenhaal is the lone exception).
  • Pickle
    'The Mummy 3' was pretty good. I enjoyed it! Maria Bello was ok. I missed Rachel Weisz. Maggie Gyllenhaal was ok too in 'Dark Knight'. I also missed Katy Holmes (believe it or not), yet no one seemed to care about the replacement. How many films have I seen where some key peeps are replaced---too many. Big deal! It worked well for the aforementioned films. The effects were quite good. I don't get why too many gripes about this. #17 As for Indiana Jones-- I disagree with you---it was damn good to see him on the big screen again(like Stallone as "Rambo")! The biggest problem with "Indy" was the weak and cheesy script. Had the right, kick-ass script been chosen and with Sean Connery in the fold, "Indy" might have been as huge as 'The Dark Knight' will be!! :D
  • Socrates
    Hey 17! How many 60 somethings do you know that still look good and can still kick ass???????????? Indy still has it...to the tune of 300+ million
  • Hyacinth
    Complete and utter crap. 'Nuff said. It had no plot. No character development. The dialogue could go back down to the toilet. And the fact that it destroyed what the past two Mummy movies tried so hard to build just makes it even worse. The effects were horrible and watching it, you would really believe that the entire budget went not into paying for the movie, but in paying for the godsend less than 2 minute action face off between Li and Yeoh. That my friends, was the only segment in the movie worth paying for. The rest, as I said, was complete crap. The 'magic' they told us to expect from the father son duo of Alex and Rick was the most misleading of all. You made the right decision Alex. Skip it.
  • Socrates
    Hey #21! "The Mummy 3 and X Files are really bad sequels due to the lengthy period between prequel and sequel" WTF?? X-Files was good, yet a smaller movie than it's predecessor, but still good. Lack of promo didn't help. Mummy 3 was everything a summer popcorn blockbuster should be; however no Rachel Weisz? Since when does time between chapters influence whether a movie is good or not? Make sense man!! (Example: Terminator(1984); Terminator 2: (1991)= 7 yrs(same as Mummy 3) Yet, Terminator 2 was AWESOME! So don't use time as a gauge! A good script+promo=HIT (Dark Knight)
  • Blue Silver
    Let the movie experts chime in with their unequivocal dissection of what makes a movie 'utter crap'. Is it that we have gotten too picky for our own good tastes? Do some of us really know when character development is needed in a movie where we already know the main characters from previous installments? Hancock sucked because character development and plot were sacrificed midway, yet most found it ok and didn't bitch about it. It's true that the media can manipulate some of us into believing what's good and what's bad--even though we get spoon fed the same rehashed plots, reboots, and sequels in various movie incarnations. One remedy to our absolute boredom and dissatisfaction at our local multiplex: Read a book!
  • Blue Silver
    By the way, there was nothing Mummy 3 could destroy when the previous 2 Mummy movies were equally engrossing special effects extravaganzas that veered off into far fetched territory. Mummy 2 was a rehashed and almost a parody of Mummy 1. Those of us buying a ticket to see this know darn well what we are about to get. Let's not get stupid and ignorant. Mummy 3 is watchable. It's the reason why we go to the movies in the first place, to escape the real world for an hour and a half or two hours.
  • James
    The Mummy 3 does not have a good plot and the actors are not very convincing either. Unlike Indiana Jones, The Mummy 3 and The X-Files: I Want to Believe are really bad sequels due to the lengthy period between the prequel and the sequel. Sadly, as we heard in the movie, the next Mummy movie will be focusing on Peru. Let's hope they have a better storyline.

    # Nel ... where are you ? and you too # Sean who said : ( tomb of the dragon emperor movie, will be the best movie of the summer ) !!!!!! read your great expectation in Jun 30, 2008 till Jul 8, 2008 : http://www.firstshowing.net/2008/06/20/papa-johns-presents-the-mummy-tomb-of-the-dragon-emperor-trailer/ Now you are wrong .... I told you guys ...I said this movie will not be good ...and as you see 95% of the people who saw it are saying the same .... Now # Nel do you remember learning me English because I made a small mistake by using O in place of U ? do you know now that this movie was not mummy but a mommy !!!!? HHHHHHHHHHH Now you must continue to dream by Mommy to become the best movie of the summer..but the real thing you must do now ... to go in the street and scream : Long live The Dark Knight :-) By the way I still Love the previews mummies ;-) and again I still didn't watch this Mommy :-)
  • Stephanie
    This movie was awful! There was no chemistry between Ricky & Evy like in the previous 2 Mummy movies! Actually, there wasn't any chemistry between of the actors like the previous 2! Whatever the lady's name who replaced Rachel was terrible. She did not portray the Evy character well at all in my opinion. The son lost his accent, which was definitely in the 2nd movie. The father-son relationship in this movie was horrible. The beginning of the movie was very slow unlike the other two! I'm sorry, but this movie was a real let down, especially since I loved the first two movies which I can look at over and over again. This one will not even grace my movie collection due to the terrible acting, the "no kind of sense" plot, and the lost of chemistry between the actors. If you are a true Mummy fan, you will be greatly disappointed. In my opinion, save your money and go see Batman instead! I wish I did! I want my money back!

    Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler .......................... Are you kidding me ? Jet Lee transform in to a Dragon ? is it a Mummy or Harry Potter movie ? I saw that he can breath Fire but to transform into a Dragon !!!! I thought that he will ride his Dragon as in Eragon or something like that but Jet Lee is the Dragon with 3 heads !!!??????? we will change the name to Jet Potter or Harry Lee ...and the movie to : The MOmmy: Harry Potter and the Dragon Emperor
  • http://www.entertainmenttodayandbeyond.com entertainmenttodayandbeyond.com
    I thought the 1st 45 minutes was both entertaining and involving but after that the whole thing falls out of bed with an uninspired storyline and to much ok to bad CGI!
  • http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=137086138 Shero
    Sean ...here you are .. Now you are protecting this movie just because you don't want to say I was wrong when you said : This movie will be the best movie of this summer !!!! And why all these CAPITAL words ??? is that mean you are angry ??? and why is that ? because all these people are wrong and you are right ? Look this is not a way to run from the fact you was wrong ...and there is no shame in that .... But if you continue to put your opinion over everyone then you are mistaking and it is shame ... As we all know this MOmmy ;-) is not the best movie of this summer ... and as I made a research in other sites ...they are all agree that this one was the worst one of the trilogy ... Look I am not saying I am a psychological doctor or the god of movie making .... but at least I know enough about the audience demand and the movie abilities and of course the life we live in ...and all these together can't accept a movie with Jet Lee transforming into a Dragon and of course a Mummy movie with stone statues waking up and breathing fire .... Now let's we be real ... the story of this movie is a big mistake .... having China and Jet Lee in Mummy movie is another mistake ... I am not sure still about the CGI in the movie because I couldn't watch the movie today it will be tomorrow for sure ;-) By the way do you know where is Nel ???? ;-)
  • http://www.skonmovies.com/ Sean Kelly
    My answer is that it is actually entertaining despite it being unnecessary. Enough said.
  • Pickle
    I second that #31. This was an entertaining film. All three Mummy movies were implausible, far-fetched, special effects popcorn films. All three were good in their own way!! And this is my point of view.
  • Garrett.king
    I haven't even seen TDK yet...And am I the only one that always found Rachel Weisz annoying as shit in the first 2 Mummy movies? I was happy to see someone replaced her, and I love the movies for their cheap old Hollywood goofy antics. So I'll probably love this movie.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    This movie has got to be the best movie of the summer and the best movie of the year!, with out any disbelief either!, and reason i'm saying this is because, i went to go and see this movie and all i'm gonna say is that, every single scene in the entire movie itself is absolutely awesome and amazing and breath-taking!, all ways possible!. i'd quite honestly give this one movie a 5 star rating and even say it's even the best movie ever made!, at least until pirates of the caribbean 4 comes out in may 2011 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=)............................................................................................ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • gina
    It's a freaking Mummy movie - and most of all, a sequel! What the hell do people expect? It's stupid to even talk about TDK and the Mummy in the same SENTENCE. Beyond that - I liked it for what it was: dumb escapist entertainment. It's fast, its entertaining [so all of it sounds really lame - let me say it again: it was MUMMY and DRAGON in the same damn title - again, what do you expect?], it looks great, and the acting is servicable. Anyone expecting more than that shouldn't go, and instead go see TDK again. As a Mummy fan, I will stand behind this one and defend it. It is most definitely not the shitfest people make it out to be. That's for sure.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    gina!, i agree with on most of what you said!, except for the part about going to see the dark knight!, i quite honestly will never go and see the dark knight again after i had seen the the mummy 3 !, because the mummy 3 is a definately better movie anyways, dare i say it!, yes i do!. So you know what?!, we all have got to give the mummy: tomb of dragon emperor some short period time anyways!, to beat the dark knight anyways!, because it's been since 1999 and 2001, that the mummy and the mummy returns came out and so now people are gonna wanna see what happens in the rest of the mummy trilogy anyways!, and dare i spoil some of you!, reading this, that there is a scene at the end of theis movie where they mention that they will be going to puru where the amazon is and will find cursed tomb and mummies there too, along with there definitely being a new super-natral being enemy in human form!, like the first three movies!. The reason i know this is because maria bello''evelyn o'connel'', mentioned that in a interview video over at either mtv.com or vh1.com!, one of those websites!, this all what i've said is absolutely 100% no lie what so ever!, just incase you don't believe what your reading what i typed on here and don't believe me!............ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Sorry!, i forgot to mention that the mummy 4: end of time is coming to movie theaters in 2010 !. Check out this website below for proof of what i previously said on here! =)..................... http://www.beyondhollywod.com/category/the-mummy-4-2010-movie/ . ENJOY! =)..........

    Ok ... as I see it looks like one person write more than one comment here but of course from another computer and different names ... but however ..that is not the point ...I want to ask some question and hope I get some answers from everyone : 1- Can you call this MOmmy the best movie of the summer ? 2- Is MOmmy 3 better than Mummy 1-2 ? 3- Did you think you was watching a Mummy movie or a Harry Potter mixed with some old chines stuff like the Forbidden Kingdoms ? and bye the way this one for Alex Billington : What about a Sound off or review for X files ??? ;-) was it so bad that no one want to mention it ? hhhhhhhhhhhhh I am just kidding ... for your information I like the 1-2 Mummy movies but this one I am still not sure because this evening I will be watching it :-) and for the X files I always said : there is nothing can make me pay to see this movie ( the same thoughts I had for Sex and the city )
  • Omega728
    Haven't seen the movie yet, but by reading the reviews on RT and most of the reviews on here. Sounds like the movie was exactly as I thought it would be, not Good! When I first heard that Jet Li was going to be in it, that did it for me. Pretty much all of his US films sucks!!! Don't get me wrong, I love Jet Li and his Chinese films, but most of his US films are corny, cheesy, and bad scripts. Too bad cause I rather enjoyed the Mummy series too. Looks like a rental, or i'll wait until someone I know buys it on DVD or Blu Ray.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Yes!, we can call this the best movie of the summer and of the year too, because man o man!, have you not seen it or something!, i mean gosh!, all the excellent action and special effects and visual effect and storyline too!, i mean come on now!. Yeah!, of course the mummy 3 is definately way beeter then the mummy and the mummy returns!, we all know that!, but just don't want to admit it!, do we?!?!?. And last!, NO!, of course i didn't think i was watching something different!, i'm not freakin' stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=/.................... As for Omega728!, DO NOT LISTEN TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAY THIS MOVIE IS BAD!, THEY ARE COMPLETELY AND ENTIRELY FULL OF TOTAL CRAP AS FREAKIN' USUALLY ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=/, I'M NOT KIDDING ABOUT THAT EITHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!............ By the way!, i assuming that probably half of you all on here are giving this movie bad reviews, when you still have not even seen this movie yet!, now haven't you?!?!, well let me just re-assure you most of you, that it's actually a heck of alot smarter to go and see the movie first and then decide if the movie was or not!, AFTER YOU'VE ALREADY SEEN IT!!!.
  • tina
    Don't listen to the fools that did not like this movie or walked out in the first 30 minutes. What? You will not waste your money if you go to see Mummy 3, it's as good as the first two. There is so much action and so many laughs. Now if you didn't like the first two movies, than this isn't your genre and why are you wasting your time seeing and reviewing this movies. We are going during the week to see this a second time. I can't wait for more installments of this franchise.
  • Moviegimp
    After this movie and Journey to the Center of the Earth I declare Brendan Fraiser critic proof. Mummy only got a 9 on Rotten Tomatoes and it still is only a few hundred grand behind DK overall and is beating it per screen. I liked the movie. I do think it had trouble with so many characters and not giving anyone enough screen time but it was still fun.
  • Obiwopkenobi
    I thought it was a great popcorn movie. At least it made up for the time I lost with Indiana Jone and the Kingdom of the Crystal SKUNK......
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Tina!, yeah!, your absolutely right!, the mummy 3 is definately a great movie!, people just don't want to except it!, and darn it!, they know it!, and just want to except it or even admit it either!. I don't know moviegimp!, i think it's way better of a movie then your saying it is! i saw it and enjoyed it 100% percent!=). Obiwopkenobi!, yes!, it is very much so a great popcorn movie, most definately!, but it is also a great movie otherwise too!. I know indiana jones was a bad movie too because i watched the trailers from it and absolutely hated everything i saw and heard, in the movie trailers from it!=/. I have no doubt in my mind that the mummy: tomb of the dragon emperor will at least stay somewhere in the top five at the box office!, for a while because it's like a late summer movie surprise to many of us and it's also been since 1999 and 2001 since we all saw the the mummy and the mummy returns in the movie theaters!. By the way!, keep an eye out for the mummy 4: end of time, coming to theaters in 2010 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=). I already know about it!, because maria bello, the actress who plays evelyn o'connel in the mummy 3: tomb of the dragon emperor, admitted about it's upcoming excistance and so there for , the mummy 3: tomb of the dragon emperor will have a sequel !!!. The fourth one will be where they go and discover mummys and curses in the amazon, in puru!, they bring that whole subject up at the end of the mummy 3: tomb of the dragon emperor!!!!!!!!!!!!!..................................................................................................................... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • Jeep-Fu
    I really miss Rachel Weisz. She's much hotter than Maria Bello (no offense, lol) and it is her role. She did the sexy librarian thing sooooo well. The effects were very good (the Yeti were awesome and provided the best laugh of the movie) and I loved what they did with the Dragon Emperor. I've always liked Brendan Fraser and I think there isn't anything he can do to mess up a role he plays. I've never seen him in anything I didn't like, he is really, really underrated. I admit the story was kinda "blech" , but the movie was amusing and I liked it. I might have to buy this on DVD, just to complete my "Mummy" collection.
  • http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=137086138 Shero
    OK after watching the movie I must admit that : 1- There were a lot of CGI in this movie ...but it doesn't mean it was great ...they were funny ... but it make the movie to be : 2- Entertaining for teenagers ;-) But : 1- I was right this movie was not better than the first and the second one ... and the reason that at least n the previews mummies there were new stuff that we didn't saw before ... like the stormy face from the dust and the face of the Mummy that transform to human being ..and stuff like that ... 2- This movie is not the best movie of the summer or the best movie of the year ... I even can't say that this was better than Iron Man or Incredible Hulk and for sure that Cloverfield was better than this... and let's we do not speak about The Dark Knight ;-) 3- The mix between Chines statues and Mummy name is a big mistake ... I mean Jet Lee being the Mummy who breath fire and became not just a Dragon but every creature you may imagine ..that was really not good ... and idiotic ..even for a teenagers ... 4- All the movie was about CGI : A- As I said there were a lot of CGI but 95% of them were not realistic ... and that is why this movie with all these CGI can't get nomination for any Visual Effect award ... B- Let's we do not forget mixing stone statues with the fire ( Volcano ) inside them was not good either .... C- all the transforming that Jet Lee did into dragon or another creatures were not clean and so blurry ( Blurry mean have no details that could be seen ) or hidden by smoke or fire ... and I am sure they were made in 2D programs not 3D ... D- even the Mattpaintings were not real ...and covers in smoke or clouds ... And that what surprise me how they make a movie that contain such a mount of CGI and they don't make it look real ... I think that both Digital Domain and Rainmaker ( Companies who made the visual Effect for the movie + some other companies too ) wanted to do the same strategy as they did in The Golden Compass because it win the Oscar for the best CGI ...and the first reason was because they got a lot of CGI shots and of course a lot of realistic animal ( organic ) modeling and animation ...but in this movie almost nothing were realistic ... even the snow too ;-) 5- and please do not push me to speak about the directing and the acting stuff ... :-) we all know how bad they were ... but because it is a comedy we do not want to speak about it but the truth that they were not funny either ... 6- believe it or not my opinion : Harry Potter movies are much better than this movie ....because at least there are a lot of surprises and new stuff in the story or in the CGI in them ... but in this movie I couldn't find one .... Now answering some of you : ( Even I don't answer some one who have a real profile ;-) ) Gina : you wrote : It's stupid to even talk about TDK and the Mummy in the same SENTENCE !!! You must say that to the person who bring the sentence ( best movie of the summer ) ...because from there we can understand that he mean that this MOmmy is better than all the other movies in this summer .... and that is why I mentioned The Dark Knight ... and there is a link that get you to the person who wrote that ...Up ... Tina : Do not make that mistake again by putting this MOmmy in the same level of the previews Mummies at least not to the first Mommy ...because there is a big difference between them both ... and we all know it ... Sean or I must call you Seana !!!! ;-) because the Gina and Tina stuff looks a bit funny and of course you are the only one who reply to there comments but however it is not your mistake it is the mistake of the site that can't control stuff like that .... As I said before that I liked the both previews Mummies ... but this one was not a Mummy movie ...it was a chines + Dragon + flying king + martial artist story this movie has nothing to do with Mummies by any sense... and I will give you an idea I watched The Dark Knight 3 times until now ... and I know they are different movies but believe me I don't want to watch this MOmmy again and I even don't want to have it in DVD ( I got the previews 2 - 2 disc edition ) but The Dark Knight I am ready to watch it again and of course I will have it on DVD too ... That is the different when you like a movie or not ...is it that good to watch it again ... and have it in DVD ? that is the point that make movies different ... of course there is difference between audience too and we know that but do you really want to say that this movie was the best movie of this summer ..because when you say that it mean it is better than The Dark Knight ....!!! and for me it was not and it can't be ... Again this movie was not bad it was good but not great ... I gave 6/10 By the way : Mummy 1999 9/10 The Mummy Returns 2001 7/10 " and I want to give it 8/10 but the CGI in the end ( Scorpion king ) just ruin everything ;-)

    Sounds like Tomb of the Dragon Emperor met everyone's expectations... Brendan Frasier tries too hard to act, so you can tell he's acting
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Well !, what the in the world was he suppost to do then?!?!, i mean hey now!, think about it!, it's not a real live situation that hes in, in the movie!, it's a movie!, and in a movie, you act!, not be serious like if you where catching something on camra!, that's life threatening or anything like that!, right???. That's why movies are called movies anyway!!!=/. And it's an awesome movie and was done extremely well by rob cohen the director!. No one should ever question his great work on this new movie!!!, sorry!=/.
  • Colin (brother of Mike) Hunt
    "Yep, it definitely is that bad!"- "I personally decided to skip seeing this movie at all" Rrrright. I mean, sure, there's no need to actually watch a film to declare it bad.
  • Colin (brother of Mike) Hunt
    #50: "And it's an awesome movie and was done extremely well by rob cohen the director!. No one should ever question his great work on this new movie!!!" Rob, is that you?
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    No Colin!, i'm sean!, this is not rob cohen sneaking on here with a different name!, if that's what you thought?!?!. I'm just trying to make a point everybody on here that, no!, this movie is actually not bad at all !, if you really think about it!!!. Theres no way to tell if the movie is good or bad with out even watching it!, i mean duhh!. So no!, theres no reason to act so sarcasic thinking that, that was rob cohen him self!, because no it wasn't. I'm sorry to disapoint you on that one!!!. By the way!, for those of you on here who think that this movie is actually bad!, probably didn't even see the movie or even acted immaturely by leaving the theaters early when the movie is still playing!, i mean come on now!, how stupid of people to leave a movie theater, that they paid for to go and see it!, in the first place and still leave, how much more stupid can people now adays get!!!. Thi movie is not bad like that total failer of a movie that came out a few years ago, called a sound of thunder!, remember that on?!?!, well that's the point i'm basically trying to make to you here!, o.k.?!?!.
  • Kay
    My family and I really liked the Mummy 3. We also liked Journey to the Center of the Earth. Oh yeah, maybe its because we didn't expect either one of them to be Oscar material, just fun for the family to watch. And we hope there is a Mummy 4 because we will go see it, too!
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Yeah!, i saw the mummy 3 also and thought it was the best movie i've seen this summer!. I have not seen journey to the center of the earth yet!, is it a good movie???. The mummy 4: end of time, will be released to movie theaters in the summer of 2010 !=). I bet the mummy 3 will be awesome to watch when it comes to dvd and blu ray disc in january 2009 !!!!!!!!!!!=)....................................

    Pass. Not the real eve.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    I like this movie for it's main character!, and visual and special effects and storyline!, not for it's secondary main character that you've complained about!, the fact that rachel weisz is not in this movie but, maria bello is!, does not bother me at all!!!. Sorry!, but, to be quite honest with you!, that one little mishaps of her taking rachels place is NO BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!!, i mean so what!, who cares if shes not in it!, the movie is awesome otherwise anyways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. That's quite honestly how i see it so far!, i went to go and see it!, i enjoyed 100% and there you have it!, it was the best movie i saw all summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
  • taylor
    awesome movie!! <3 loved me some brendan fraser
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Taylor!, I loved everything about this movie, after i had seen it in the movie theaters!. Yes!, brendan fraser is an awesome actor!=). Can't wait to see him in the mummy 4: end of time, which comes out in summer 2010 !!!!!!!!!!=)...

    sean : OK maybe you are not Rob but you look like one of the Producers or Distributor of the movie ;-) Read and answer the # 46 by me ... because as I see you have no answer for the things I wrote :-) and even you look like kind a running from the truth ;-)
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Yes!, that's right!, i'm not rob cohen and No!, i'm also not even one of the producers or distributor either from the movie, so no you your wrong about that!. Yeah!, i have read what you asked me to read on #46, but yeah the way you had made this movie sound on that reply was not entirely accurate because!, the movie itself has much more in it then you had said it had!, are you even sure you had seen the movie or at least the movie in it's entirety?!?!. I quite honestly enjoyed it when i saw it!, this movie does make sense and does have a great storyline, and awesome special effects and visual effects and great actors and actresses!, and the movie itself is not just all about the special and visual effects, because yes!, there is a story in it and a plotline!. Also it does not bother me like it might bother some other people, about the fact that it takes place in china!, i mean who cares that it does, it's actually just as good as the first two movies anyways!!!!!, and i'm beginning to wonder when people will accept that and get over it!, and just go and see it, without having such low exceptations for it, just because it does not even meet there exceptations before they've even seen it in the movie theaters!!!, i mean come on now. If i where anyone out there thinking about going to possibly going to see this movie, i'd go and see it first, and then decide if it was a good or bad movie after i'd have seen it anyways, so there you have it!!!=/.
  • http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=137086138 Shero
    Sean look again you are doing the same thing ...motivating people to see the movie ... I never said to any one do not watch this movie ...but you do why is that ? i begin my critics with good points and then bad ... and Of course I watched the movie and not just once but twice and both times I was invited by friends ... and second time I watched it just to make sure that my points in CGI was right ... Again if you think that this movie was not about CGI then sorry I think you didn't watch it carefully :-) Again you still running from answering my questions ...and it is your right I am not pushing you again to answer my points but at least when you answer you must explain the points ... I am critiquing the movie and I gave all the details ..even I have more stuff to say about it but I will not because I don't want to make is sound like I am negative .... :-) Just to remind you that I am not saying stuff because I don't like the movie ... no... no ... I am saying that because I have enough information and knowledge in the way the movie has been made ( CGI angle of view ) .. ;-) and to do not disappoint you I will let you know why I gave 95% of the CGI was not good ...do you know where is the other 5% ? in the skeleton army ( not the stone army ) in the end of the movie ...that was the only nice CGI in the movie ... By the way :-) Jet Lee and his army were stone or dust ..because some times they sound like Iron - Metal and some times they looked like a Chocolate or Biscuit !!!! ????? Do not answer this question :-) because the movie is for teenagers and children only ;-)
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    O.k.!, so your asking me why am i motivating people to see this movie???, o.k. well then my answer to you on that is that, because i enjoyed this movie through out it's whole entirety when i went to go and see it in the movie theaters!, so would would assume that other people would most definately feel the same way about it too!, and believe me !, when i know theres a bad movie coming to theaters, i'll know it and this movie is NOT one of them, and when i know about there being a new movie coming to the movie theaters, thats a GREAT movie, then i'll know about it for sure, and this is one of those GREAT MOVIES, when the subject comes to the storyline and the actors and actresses and visual and special effects and everything else that this movie contains with in it!!!, and Those two scenes that your where mentioning to me about in the movie with the skeletons army-terra cotta army, that was a perfectly fine part of the movie , and nothing was wrong with it or the rest of the movie either!, so i promise you that 100% percent for sure!!!, it'll look many times better on dvd and blu ray disc when it comes out in january 2009!!!. But!, don't get me wrong about this though, because i'm really not trying to miss anything you reply to me about when you answer to my replies to you on here, it's just that you you seem to write more and more stuff about the movie, that kinda gets me lost on how to basically reply back to you but!, of course though, no offense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=)..................................................................
  • http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=137086138 Shero
    Sean : Do you really read what you write ? Look I just want to know what will be your answer because I know from the beginning that you are not true with your self and with me and with everyone ells in this site when you said : that this movie is better than the Dark Knight !!!! from that sentence I understand that you are here just to motivate people to watch this movie nothing ells ...and what is the reason ? of course there must be a reason that you do this .... For example .. look the difference between me and you !!! I love the Mummy movies and even in this one I told you what is the truth about the movie and I never wanted to broke the name of Mummies ..even this movie was in my top 10 movies of this year but sorry now it is in my 100 top movies of the year .... I didn't say to any one don't watch this movie ...I didn't lie to them by saying this movie is the best movie of the summer ...!!!!!!!!!!!! and it is better than The Dark Knight ... You are here as a fan of Mummy facing another people who are fans of Batman .... but not with me I am not critiquing as a fan ... I am critiquing as an Artist and as a human being who saw the movie ... for example if Heath Ledger was not good in the role of Joker I will say it ... but He was the best in it ... that is the difference that you are here as a fan or as a worker for the companies who made the Mummy film but I am here as an Artist .... That is why you will never understand to argue normally with me because for you the truth have no meaning and do not make money then you must lie to everyone ... and here it come my point that I will never discuss any other review with you hope you will not enter any discussing with me too ..because there is a big thick wall between truth and making money ..and that is why you will never give up your benefits ...and I will never stop telling the truth .. it is better to end the story people will decide by them selves if they put there money on you or their trust on me ... and by the way if some one want to show the good he will not need to mention 3 times the date and the release of the DVD and Blue ray for this movie !!!!! Hope this will end our discussion ... because as I said there is a big thick wall between making money and truth ! ;-)
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    O.k.!, now you've seriously gone way to far!, all i was trying to say before was that i already know that that even thought the mummy 3 and the dark knight are in the movie theaters being watched by people at the exact same time!, i'm pretty sure that at least 50% percent of the people who go to movie theaters every day with both movies in the movie theaters, will go and see the mummy: tomb of the dragon emperor which is pretty much happening as we speak!, and the other 50% of those people will go and see the dark knight!, both movies are literally in compition at the box office and then when that's finished being the case, they will be released to dvd and blu ray disc in december and january, in december for the dark knight and then in january for the mummy tomb of the dragon emperor!. Thats all i was trying to say before!, you don't have to get so upset about someone elses replies to you when they're just talking to you about movies and not about each other!, i'm just glad that you and i both have our own favorite newly theatrically released movies in mind!, but!, i still don't understand why your replies to me are so long and always have so much to say to the other person your replying to, and why your agueing with me about it in the first place either?!?!?!. I wasn't trying to sound so out of reach with what i was saying to you before!, but if you ask me now!, i'd say you are!, sorry=/.
  • http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=137086138 Shero
    Here we go again :-) Did I mentioned that there is no reason between truth and making money to face each other or not ? because even now you changed all your opinion and became entirely a different person and that is what is all about when you care about making money ... you don't care about honor or truth ... even you step on your own words ... However ... I will not answer you anymore ...don't be mad at me ...I will just leave you to do your job ... for me it was enough to make it sure if there is any other reason behind all these blind love and DVD - Blue ray commercial you made for Mummy 3 ...but I find out that there is nothing ells than making money ... ;-)

  • MaryK
    I saw the movie, and really enjoyed it. I must admit, however, that I was not thrilled with the replacement for Evie. But once you get past that one little fact, the movie is action-packed, and very entertaining. I don't know what some of these other people are talking about, and why so serious. Most people go to the movies for fun and entertainment, not to critique something which I rather doubt they know much about to begin with. And this movie is both. It is definitely worth it.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    MaryK!, you are absolutly 100% right!, the mummy 3 movie is very entertaining and action-packed!, and thats definately a very good thing to for this movies case!. This movie is ment to be good and so there we have it!, it is!,and thats that!. And for those of us who don't like that!, well face it!, it's the fact in this case and it's also reality!, thank you very much!=). I mean besides the mummy tomb of the dragon emperor is a really realy awesome movie anyways!, so for all you dark knight fans out there, dare i say this!, think again!, yeah!, thats right!, i said it!, whos laughing now!!! =). And as for shero!, please!, i give up already!, lighten up!!!=/=), i was just trying to make a point to you before and you basically didn't get it at all, did you???!=/, sorry!................................
  • Samuel
    People walked out on the mummy? Why it was good I was entertained and I've seen worst (the happening just saw it at the dollar show) the mummy 3 was fun I didn't like that Evie was replaced but I still liked it. I wouldn't call it better then the first mummy and need to watch 2 again but would definitely enjoy another installment this probably rates number 4 on my action movie list under Dark Knight iron man incredible Hulk the mummy 3 (hellboy and Hancock were ok )
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Samuel!, No!, people aren't walking out on the mummy 3!, what made you think that!?!?. Yeah!, that happening movie sucks!, no kidding!. I actually didn't care that rachel weisz was not in the mummy 3, i didn't bother me at all !!!, and i also still like the movi too after i saw it in the movie theaters!. Well i would call this movie better then first because of everything this movie contain with in anyways!. I saw all the other movies you mentioned too, in the movie theates except for hellboy 2 and hancock!, those two, seem kinda suckish!, if you get my dirft?!?!?.
  • Grimalda Factori
    What happened to Evie? Why was she replaced with the all-teeth Maria Bello? Evie was supposed to be English. No English gal in the 40s had HUGE perfect teeth like MB's. Couldn't concentrate on anything when those teeth were on the screen. They're mesmerizing. Jonathon was less of a drip than he was previously portrayed and therefore lost something of his endearing stupid cowardice. The original three, in the first two movies, were good. Why mess with that? I was a bit disappointed about there being no Mummy, but the terra cotta army was good. All in all, I shoulda saved my money to do a 7-day DVD rental later on.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Jet li was the mummy in the mummy 3 !!!.
  • Richard Geer
    Wow! Some of you guys are just brutal. Step back once in awhile and watch some of the cheesy monster and sci fi flicks of the fifties and especially the early 60's when I was growing up and you will see how good you really have it. Even Harryhausen's much lauded films (which I still have a warm feeling for) have some pretty ham fisted acting and the effects can't hold a candle to what is done these days. Story--what story? Lets just get on with the monsters! Now I realize that folks like Lucas, Spielberg, Jackson, and now Christopher Nolan have raised the bar still can't we take each film as its own unique offering and take pleasure for a couple of hours. No M3 was not a great film but still a lot of fun and I think actually better than the second one in the franchise. The whole concept is so far over the top to begin with that folks need to get a life. Have any of you actually seen the original Karloff vehicle. I really love that one, but it would probably appear much too creaky to most of the ADD generation that looks at movies these days. (By the way I was raised on peanut butter and Ritalin so I can identify).Yet I think it actually is much creepier than the first Mummy film in this franchise. Still I enjoyed that one for what it brought to the table and I enjoyed this last one as well. In some respects I felt the acting was superior though there were some lapses. Also I actually liked the first Batman movie better than TDK, though Heath Ledger was pure genius. The film was a bit too long and seemed to drift in a few spots whereas the first one had one surprise and revelation after another. Still this seems like a lot of quibbling to me. and I have actually seen TDK three times as well as getting to be a cop as an extra in this film so I am trying to be as objective as possible. I am not really sure why we have to trash one film to elevate another one anyway. So now just go out and get some popcorn, enjoy, and I will still be curious to see those Peruvian mummies.

And to the other person after you who left his or her comment after yours!, NO!, it was not horrible at all !, sorry to birst your all you peoples bubbles "sorta speak", but NO!, this movie absolutely does not suck at all !!!!!!!!!!!!. It's just that you all don't like the fact that it's set in china instead of egypt!!!!!!!!!!!!=/, i mean so what!, who gives a "you know what"!?!?!. It's not big freakin' deal!, for god sakes!=/. Also!, who the heck cares that it does not have the original actress rachael weisz!, to those of you whom mentioned that before?!?!?!. Maria bello!, did an outstanding job!, in this movie!. I'm gonna definately buy this movie one blu ray disc for my blu ray disc movie collection!, when it comes out on december 2nd, 2008 tuesday!=). I found out that, thats it's dvd/bl ray disc release date on a "special hard to find webpage", on amazon.com there is a dvd/blu ray disc release date list on there!, that i've discovered!=, that's how i know of it's true dvd/blu ray disc release date!!!=).

    sean / Do you remember what you wrote to me last time ? let me remind you : ( O.k.!, shero!, fare enough! ) But again you mentioned my name !!!! Why ? Do not answer me because I don't need to get in discussion with you again ..I knew you long time ago .... Again you didn't can't keep your word...that is shame ... really There is a great writer who said : If there is something right and true you don't need to mention it again and again ... Example : Dictators always say : ( we believe in democracy !!!! We believe in Freedom ) .... again and again and again ...but in real they don't that is why they repeat it ...and they don't keep their words either ;-) Now you are doing the same .... DVDs buy the DVD ... Buy the Blue ray too !!!!!! I will not ask you anything about that it is your job to make money or make people buy the DVD ... the problem is people don't need you to tell them that ..... they already know if they will buy it or not...just be a man and keep your words and do not mention my name again ... One more thing the same writer said : Do not critic or hate anything until you know everything about it ...and that was the only reason I watched Mommy-3 ;-) two times .... ;-) Now be a man and keep your word ....and do not mention my name again ? Ok ?

  • Ohio Knight
    The preview was better than the movie
  • Shibsy
    It was terrible.. I loved the other two movies, but this was one of the worst movies I've ever seen, I must say!
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Ohio Knight!, yeah!, maybe they decided to just show the best scenes from the movie in the trailer!. Shibsy!, i don't know about that for sure!, i presonally thought the movie was the best one this whole entire summer!, all of the other ones where kinda sorta dumb anyways!. There has not been a mummy movie added to this franchise for a while anyways so, it was time for there to be another one added regardles whether if it was going to end up being a good or bad movie at all in the first place!!!. That's quite honestly how i pretty much already see where this trilogy is going!, if you ask me!!!. O!, and i know i've said this before but!, Keep an eye out for the mummy 4 coming out to theaters in 2010 !!!=). Maybe the fourth one coming out in 2010, will be better then the third one that came out august 1st this year!. Do you any of you think that could be a possiblity???, i'm just curious!!!.
  • Kath
    Well, having just seen the Tomb of the dragon emperor I have to say my feelings were mixed! I loved the 1st two mummy movies, but this one seemed to take an awful long time to get going. Later on though, things livened up and we got some terrific action scenes. Maria Bello as Evie was ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL!! who on earth cast this pitiful "actress" as Evie needs their head testing. Unconvincing performance, her sword play was clumsy and amateur compared to what we saw Evie doing in mummy two, she forgot she was supposed to be English and let her accent slip into american more than once and she was just soooooooooooooo BORING!!!!!!!!!!!! Likewise Alex; I seem to remember he had an accent more English than American in m2, what happened? did he get sent to university in America? and how did his supposed dad managed to look more like his brother despite the passing of years? It would have been nice too to actually have a mummy putting in an appearance give the frequent references towards mummies. The action scenes when they eventually made an appearance did save the day somewhat but on the whole I think disappointment was my main feeling having anticipated and hoped for another mummy movie so soon.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    O!, come on!, we all should give the people all involved in this movie a little more credit then that!, i mean gosh, am i the only one here who actualy enjoyed every single thing about it when i saw it!, or what???. The whole movie it self was great in all ways!, but i also know theres alot of you on here who actually disagree with me on that!, but, i will, also say that i already know that, that is the truth!, now isn't it!?!?. I mean come on now!=/. This movie is definately enjoyable and entertaining no matter what anyone says!, they just don't want to admit it for some strange unkown reason!=/.
  • Kelli
    I had to keep watching in hopes that it would get better. It didn't. I knew it was gonna be bad when Rachel Weis did not play the role of Brendan Frasier's wife.
  • tammy
    was it good as mummy 1&2,NO, but it was'nt that bad and richard gere was right about the 60's movie, it wasn't fantastic , but it was a good popcorn munching movie and i do hope the peruvian mummy movie's will have longer screen time to develop the plot better and i do hope rachel weiss will be back , but i enjoyed it and so didn't my young nephews ( ages, 15,14,&13), it certainly was not the worst movie of the summer and definitely the best, but enjoyable
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Well !, i have a gutt feeling though that, the mummy 4: rise of the aztec movie that comes to theaters in 2010 !, will definately be way much more enjoyable and entertaining to you all here then the third one because, i'm sure that by then, the people who made the third movie will, in fact try to make it even better then the third one!, and chances are, that it actually will be!, so we all here should have absolutely nothing to worry about, what so ever!, and gosh darn it!, those of you who don't even feel that way about that ordeal!, i'm telling you it's very much possible 100% percent for sure about it too!!!!!!!!!!, you've gotta realize thta already!, i mean my gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=/, come on now already!.......................................................................................................
  • Bry from Chi
    My fav part was the shirtless scene even though it was only two seconds long. One of these days folks well figure out girls need "beefcake". Shoot, what can I say, I'm a chick. :) Everything was okay...but you all are right..they did need much better writing. Oh well. :) Now..when is Wolverine coming out! ;) (beefcake at it's best)
  • anonymous
    Sucked even more than I expected. In a fit of nostalgia, I went to see the movie. Because I went with my brother, who liked the meager jokes and terrible over-the-top useless explosions enough to stay, I had to "go to the bathroom" several times in order to sneak into a TDK screening instead. Each time I came back, it wasn't getting any better. As soon as I went home I popped in the first Mummy movie to make myself feel better.
  • vegasdanny
    Ive not seen this movie (and i doubt i ever will) but it must have been better then Indy4??? Apart from The Dark Knight i thought this years "blockbusters" were all really poor! There were some good moments in both Iron man and Hulk movies....but still nothing worth seeing twice!
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    You people need to grow up!, realize what your missing out on this great movie!, go and see it!, and get over your darn selves already!, o.k.!, i'm sorry but!, i went to go and see this movie myself and saw absolutely nothing wrong with this entire movie!, what so ever!, o.k?!?!?!?!. Go and see it!, who ever has not seen it!, go and see it!, and realize that the people who say that they have, and are saying such negative things about it, are completely wrong!. So you know what!?, to those of you that are thinking that this movie is not worth seeing!, well let me just re-assure you!, you are 100% percent wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=(=/.
  • randy
    Wow--what a cross section of passion about this movie. I cant wait to get the chance to see it! That way I can make my own decision on how good or bad it is. You sure can't tell anything about it from reading here! Randy
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Well !, let me just tell you that all of us here obviously have our own little thing to say about this movie but, let me also just re-assure you that, the people on here such as myself who have actually seen this movie and are saying good-positive things about it!, are the people who know what their talking about!, but the people who either scene it and/have not scene it!, and that are still saying untrue-negative things about are wrong in all ways thinkable!. That's quite honestly just how it might as well end up being!, because of how people act about this in the very extreme firse place!. By the way!, i'd say!, go and see the movie, and then realize how hard it was for everyone involved in this movie to get this movie done and just get that yes!, it is an awesome movie anyways!, whether if we like it or not!=). Besides!, who doesn't like an entertaining movie like this anyways?!?!, i personally like every single thing about it!, if you asked me!!!. I also can't wait to finally have it on blu ray disc on december 2nd, 2008 tuesday!, which is when it'll be coming out to dvd and blu ray disc in stores to be sold at!!!=), where they sell movies on those formats!!!=)..........
  • LoveThatDoll
    I went to see the movie because of Brendan, and because I LOVED the first two of the franchise. To this day, though I own them both on DVD - if I'm channel surfing and they're on, I'm stuck watching it til' the end. So I REALLY wanted to like The Mummy 3, and I think it had definite potential, BUT OMG! Whoever cast Maria Bello as Evy should have a conversation with someone about the definition of the word CHEMISTRY. There was ZERO, ZILCH, NADA, between Maria Bello and Brendan Fraser. For the most part, he looked like he was doing a job, and wasn't really enjoying it. There were times when she looked more like his mom than his wife. AND what happened to the fact that Evy was half Egyptian? Bello's English accent was HORRIFIC to boot. You want to see CHEMISTRY - Rachel and Brendan didn't even need to speak, if they shared the scene - all they had to do was look at each other and you could feel the SIZZLE. It's funny, but there was this one thing that Brendan and Rachel used to do, where he would rub her nose with his... I think Brendan actually tried to do that in the last scene, but it JUST DID NOT WORK. Luke Ford, though handsome, looked more like his little brother than his son, and what happened to Alex's BEAUTIFUL English accent from The Mummy Returns? All of a sudden he's a full fledged American? I was really disappointed. Though I'm one of those that will have to buy it on DVD, because it would ruin my collection if I don't, and because I LOVE Mr. Brendan Fraser. They should have written Evy out of the story, left her at home in England while they chased the dragon emperor by themselves. I would've enjoyed it so much more!

    I see and understand what you've said!, but i just don't see how it could be possible that, maria bello did a horrible job in the movie at all !. She did perfectly fine and i was completely saticifed by her entire performance in th mummy 3 !, and i'm not gonna complain about anything involving this movie what so ever!=). I can't wait to finally get my darn hands on the mummy 3 blu ray disc on december 2nd, 2008 tuesday!, which is when it'll be released to that format and dvd too, and reason i exactly why it will be out on that date is because a webpage on amazon that's basically got all the upcoming blu ray disc release dates, and the mummy 3 is one of them with that date for this movie!=). By the way!, i know i've said this before but!, how many of you on here are aware of the fact that there will be the mummy 4: rise of the aztec in 2010???, i had recently found out about it on imdb.com!, and they are definately a truth-worthy movie website!, so i know already that, that title and release year for the mummy 4 is no lie!, and i mean that as good thing for this franchise!!!!!!!=).

    The three-headed dragon and the yetis were cool but the rest of the film is just a corny, forgettable action flick.
  • NotSoFast
    I agree with LoveThatDoll, Maria Bello was terrible as Evie, no spark whatsoever with Brendan Fraser. I hope they bring back Rachel Weisz for the fourth movie, I feel it'll be a big mistake if they don't. I saw The Mummy on cable this weekend, and noticed the nose rubbing between Brendan and Rachel, too cute! The scene where they see each other for the first time is amazing. Funny what you pick up on when someone points things out to you.

    SlashBeast!, i disagree!, there was definately way more to it then that!. And the movie is way better then that!, we just have to give it some time in the box office world wide!, and then we'll all see how good it'll do!, it's just that nobody realizes that just yet, but we'll see!, how it truely does at it's very end of being in theaters!, then it'll be released to dvd and blu ray disc on december 2nd, so in other words it'll basically be in total limbo for about 3 to 4 months, more or less!, and then by the time it comes to dvd and blu ray disc disc, there may be more people who will want to buy it, then see it in theaters!. NotSoFast!, who left his or her comment after SlashBeast!, I'm very sorry to have to inform you this!, but now after they've involved rob cohen as the director and maria bello as the main actress!, theres actually absolutely no chance what so ever that she'll be able to return now, because maria bello and director rob cohen from the mummy 3 might not let that happen at all !, so theres a good chance that it's just to late for that to now be the case!, i'm sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=/.......

    SEAN: You're saying that a film is great purely because of the amount of money it makes which is not true. The film is probably worth at least one watch but it's nothing memorable or even close to being considered a "great film". The dialogue and the plot were in general just corny and this franchise has really gotten stale.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    Well SlashBleast!, i guess we all have our own thoughts on how this movie really is!, but!, you know what!?, i quite honestly feel alot more satisfied and happy with how the movie turned out to be in the movie theaters once i went to go and see it!, better then how it seemed at first with the teaser and theatrical movie trailers!, that were released before it came to theaters!!!. I liked it enough to want to go and definately buy it on blu ray disc, once it comes out on that format and dvd, on december 2nd, 2008 tuesday!, and so there for, i will !!!.......................................................

    Ok i recently saw the film and i came out happy. Lets start by saying for those who loved the mummy series will actually remember there is always cheasy humour in it so its nothing new but why are people giving so much stick when its always been there, is it that with recent films like batman is it our fault for expecting so much from films these days. Overly i enjoyed it apart from parts that seemed to cut story short and the ice bear monster things were a awful move but the idea of it all was good fun oh and i did not like the new evy as she was not good for the part. It's not a great film but a enjoyable one for the family.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    That's o.k.!, adam!, when all that dumb hype for the dark knight movie goes away!, well all appreciate the fact that mummy 3 movie was even made along with its "made to be for fun" special effects and far feched storyline!. I'm just glad that that they didn't change rick o-connells character and i enjyed seeing jet li as the new bad guy!=). But do keep in mind that the fourth mummy will be released to theaters in 2010, and will take place in puru "the amazon", "amazon mummys!", sounds cool to me!!!=). the mummy 4 wil be called the mummy: rise of the aztec, if you don't believe me at all!, then check it out on imdb.com!!!!!!!!!!!!=).......................................................................... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I went to see this movie for two reasons. 1. Isabella Leong, who plays Lin, who wasn't that great. She is much better in Asian films... 2. Isabella Leong speaking with Yetis. I got what I went for, therefore I am happy. Although, I hate to admit, Ford cound't keep is accent straight, that drove me up the wall...
  • Mike
    Please Take out the cornyness its horrible, ruins the movie. what in the beginning she was dancing around and sliding on her furniture.sliding on the piano, because she was bored. ...stupid

    soooo bad
  • werdnafaz
    Mummy!!!!!!!
  • adam
    mummy 4...good news and i think they will take note not to go too far with the cheesy things so its gonna be good, and aztecs are very interestng and scary...just look into the human sacrifices they made....that would worry you if you were in aztec land.
  • jmoney
    I liked Mummy 3. If i expected more than a mindless, over-the-top popcorn flick then I was fooling myself. It was fun if you let it be. Not as good as the first two, but fun and fast-paced.
  • Steve
    i dont know why so many people hated it, it was an alright movie, not as good as the Egyptian ones, but still a good movie to watch
  • http://bellsouth.net SEAN
    O.k.!, steve, yeah!, that's fare enough!. I totally agree!!!....
  • Jerry
    A total waste of time. Expected something better in this movie. They should have ended the series with Mummy 2.
  • http://bellsouth.net SEAN
    Nope!. Jerry!, i totally disagree!. Sorry!=/...
  • Kyle
    I didn't think it was that bad. I mean it isn't the best in the series but its an interesting entry.
  • The Awsome Dude With Sunglasses
    It was a lot of fun, not as good as the two first movies, but whatever. I'd give it a 8/10.
  • Celeste
    I was SOOOO Dissapointed watching this movie. There was too much on love triangles, not enough on action. AND EVE WAS NOT EVE! That ruined the entire movie for me to begin with because i completely thought Rachel Weisz was going to be back. It was just too long of a Gap I think. THe mummy returns should have just stopped on good terms. I still enjoy brendan fraiser.... but it made me mad the way JEt Li was very little shown. Just a flash back and a few little fight scenes. Not even no real fight scenes. THEY DIDNT EVEN SHOW HIS MARTIAL ART SKILLS. Which I always look forward to seeing in a movie. His wushu is excellent! Im a big fan. But this movie blowed. I was so tempted to walk out and take my money back within the first 30 minutes but i had a friend there whowas semi enjoying herself so we stayed. Bleh.
  • Lauren
    I think the movie would have been awesome if all the original characters were in it. Fair enough the Boy (Alex) was older and they would have needed another other guy to play him, but it just wasn’t the same with the different wife (Evelyn). It just didnt seem like we were watching the same movie!!!! Sequels and Prequels never make it big when they chop and swap the characters... Have we not learned this yet film directors!!!???
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    O.k. look!, as far as i'm pretty much aware of!, i went to go and see the movie when it first came out!, and i will say that, i enjoyed it 100%percent through it's it's whole entirety or in other words whole length in time playing at the movie heater where i went to go and see it and had not one complant about the movie it self at all, what so ever!, so i am definately planning on buying it on blu ray disc when it's released to that format!!!.
  • http://bellsouth.net sean
    I have just found out on darkhorizons.com, which is theatrical and dvd release dates website, that the mummy: tomb of the dragon emperor dvd/blu rya disc release date has unfortunately been changed from december 2nd, 2008 tuesday, to december 16th, 2008 tuesday, which is two weeks later in december 2008 for this movie, then originally planned!. So for those of us who really were planning on getting it on that original date, will know have unfortunately wait an extra two unnessessary weeks to buy it!!!=( =/...............
  • maria
    yes!! this is a total crap movie... iwish mummy 4 bring back the chemistry in it in the viewers.... rachel weisz should do the Eve part again, her son is big by now.... and will appreciate her mother to be a action super hero fighting egyptian mummies and so....
  • Stef
    Right look! this movie maybe escapism but that doesn't mean i want to escape into shit. I have watched this movie and it lost all the greatness of the first two. witty one liners from brendan fraser. the stupidty of jonathan and the great intensity of evie and rick!!!! don't try and make this movie sound good. it is just not. which is why Brendan Fraser may not even return and i don't blame him!!!!

    sean, you're a whore, shut the hell up and rape your mom.
