[NeoFilmShop.com] The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) – USA
All the latest Asian/Martial Arts DVD and Blu Ray in NeoFilmShop.com
With the pending release of Tom Cruise latest reboot of the highly successful Mummy series, it’s probably just in time for us to revisit the third film of the series. Adding martial art star Jet Li seems to be more like the icing on the cake than anything else. Li appears for nothing more than a glorified cameo at the beginning and end, whilst a CGI mummy face takes over for most of the movie. Fraser of course is at the end of his bankable career and seems less concern than the prequels. Hong Kong actors Anthony Wong and Isabella Leong enjoys extended screen time, while Michelle Yeoh shines as the long lasting magical lady. Not to mention, the film misses Rachel Weisz who smartly rejected the film role based on the script. All in all, this is ready an unnecessary ride for all involved.
I rated it 2/5
