The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008)

MTD_Sneak1Sht_7 (Page 1)

In the Far East, Alex O’Connell, the son of famed mummy fighters Rick and Evy O’Connell, unearths the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin — a shape-shifting entity cursed by a witch centuries ago. (IMDb)
Looks better than the last one, but the little humour from before is now completely gone (“You guys are like mummy magnets!” *crickets*), the plot is a complete rehash (just substitute a terracotta army for the dog army, and add in some yetis), and the added father-son dramatic thread falls flat on its face just like it did in Die Hard 5 (newcomer Bello isn’t great either). Some good fight choreography and one badass “revenge for the oppressed” speech at the climax are the only positives here.
5/10 (Poor)
