Watch The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) Online

After popular but predecessors—1999’s “The Mummy” and 2001’s “The Mummy Returns”—fails to even fulfill this minimal expectation, there was never much chance that THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR was turn out to be a great film in Chinese, just enough to make this pleasant popcorn movie for viewers seeking action and adventure without too many chills and thrills. As before, the last thing this MUMMY movie wants to do is actually scare anybody; it’s all good clean fun obviously patterned on the INDIANA JONES movies, but without the gung-ho pro-American jingoism.

THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR (2008). Directed by Rob Cohen. Written by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on character created by Stephen Sommers (uncredited) inspired by the 1932 screenplay by John L. Balderston (uncredited). Cast: Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello, John Hannah, Michelle Yeoh, Luke Ford, Isabella Leong, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Russell Wong, Liam Cunnimgham, David Calder, Jessey Meng, Tian Liang, Albert Kwan. Color me old-fashioned, but when I think of mummies depicted throughout the cinematic ages, a solitary image comes to mind: that of the undead, draped head to toe in strips of white linen, staggering around in dark passageways ready to pounce.

FOOTNOTES:

  1. Terra Cotta Warriors have been found in archeological digs, so it is easy to understand why the screenwriters included them here. Nevertheless, they should have realized that the phrase “Terra Cotta Warriors” is slightly inadequate when it comes to striking fear and awe in the human heart. One wonders if they will be confronted by Wicker Soldiers and Garden Gnome Battalions. 
  2. The film makes a good joke about this. Evenly is first seen from behind, face hidden, at a book store where she is reading from her latest ”novel,” which is obviously a thinly disguised version of the adventures she and her husband went through in the previous films. When asked by a fan if her literary heroine is based on herself, Bello reveals her face to the camera for the first time and say that was a “completely different” person altogether.
