A disappointment ! I own and love the other two Mummy movies but this one was a disappointment. I didn't care for the guy who played the son. I found his monotone thru out the movie to be very distracting. I would have loved seeing more of Brendan Fraser. It seemed that their hearts just weren't into the making of this movie.
Another Fun Romp with Legions of Mummies Mummy 3, as any good sequel should be, tops the previous films. Yes, the script is not as strong, but the entirely new mythology (Chinese instead of Egyptian) was a welcome change. The best entry in this genre for awhile, topping the new Indy and the last National Treasure. Great effects, as usual, and the required epic battle plus the long-awaited showdown between Li and Yoeh. Here Li is finally featured in an expensive American film. Yes, it's always annoying when actors change (Evie), but Bello wasn't bad (they should have given her more action). The new characters are a welcome addition, especially Isabella Leong. Hopefully part 4 will be made.action snoozefest My wife got this movie for christmas,along with other recent releases and a few classics.I would not put this title with the classics,but as a cure for insomnia,it's near the top of my list.There is virtually non-stop action,but not entertaining,rather mechanical and uninspired,like watching cars being built(or destroyed)on an assembly line with never an iota of human emotion.Brendan Fraser's character and his movie-wife (a wasted Maria Bello)are now rich and bored and their son is in his early twenties.That's how you figure out brendan and his new(old) wife are about twenty years older! When you consider how much was spent on sets,costumes,effects,etc; it's curious the lead man wasn't aged a day.The relationship between brendan and his wife was superficial,and the father-son dynamic didn't exist.There are lame archeology jokes to remind you this movie is aping Indiana Jones,Yetis thrown in for those with adhd,and the icing on this steaming pile of fluff is the ending ripped right from the Lord of the Rings.It was a difficult film for me to get through,because of the constant use of uninspired cgi,boring fight scenes,and bland characters.I enjoyed it as a bit of light and silly fun If I were to judge this movie according to the standards of serious movies it would get a non-rating, but it isn't meant to be a serious movie. This is just a big budget light entertainment that has more to do with Hollywood serials from the early days of the movie industry than anything resembling an approach to art, originality, or meaning. It is just supposed to be silly fun. Do you like mummies? If so, then you get to see it all again here, but on the other side of the world. Like the old serials, the plot follows the same general trend and climaxes in a huge battle where good wins and evil is given the defeat it deserves.
Brendan Fraser is still Rick O'Connell, but Maria Bello replaces Rachel Weisz. While I thought Bello played Evelyn O'Connell just fine, the rest of my family disliked the change intensely. They probably should not have made the change. While Jet Li's character has a big role in the movie, he has a small part, because most of the time Emperor Han is a computer generated monster. But Jet Li's name was supposed to sell tickets. While the movie cost $175 million to make, it only brought in $102 million in the U.S. market, but did $290 million overseas. So, maybe it worked well for the producers when seen from a global perspective. $392 million total box office (before DVD sales and other licensing rights) is pretty solid even with the disappointing domestic take. I thought the plot point of having the son all grown up and a bit troubled was a nice addition and Luke Ford does a good job as Alex.
Whether or not you should see this movie is entirely based on how well you tolerate light sweets with no nutritional value. Sometimes you feel like a candy bar instead of a salad. I enjoyed it for what it aimed to be, but won't make any effort at all to remember it or think about what the movie "was about". Really, it is just a bit of fun.

I Think I Have Seen This Before How many times can you make the same movie. The first one was ok cause it was different. Then they made it two more times. This time with the nakedest woman in movie history, Maria Belo (sp?) (not naked) playing the Rachel Weisz part. And like every other franchise that goes on too long that add either a young side kick or a kid of one of the moron main characters or both and usually it is Shia Labeouf or some Shia wanna be ya. This movie is stOOpid and unorigional. It is like watching a rerun of the same movie for the third time. I would rather see Brendan Frazier do George of the Jungle 10 at this point.
