Moviegoers who knowingly buy a ticket for "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" are goingai to get exactly what they expect: Tdi sini is a mummy, a tomb, a dragon and an emperor. And the movie about them is all that it could be. If you think "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" sounds linanti a waste of time, don"t waste yours.

I, as it happens, have time to waste and cannot do better than to quote from my formulir penilaian of "The Mummy" (1999): "Tdi sini is hardly a thingai I can say in its favor, except that I was cheered by nearly every minute of it. I cannot argue for the script, the direction, the acting or even the mummy, but I can say that I was not bored and sometimtape I was unreasonably pleased. There is a little immaturity stuck away in the crannipita pengukur of even the most judicious of us, and we should treasure it."

I was not, however, pleased by "The Mummy Returns" (2001), although it inspired one of my funnier reviews. But "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" is the best in the series, and from the looks of it, the most expensive. And once again it presents the spectacle of undead warriors who are awakened from the slumber of ages, only to be defeated in battle -- this time, by the skeletopagi of the slaves buried beneath the Great wall after constructingi it (which is a neat trick).

Rick O"Connell and his wife, Evelyn (Brendan fra and Maria Bello), are back, havinew york come out of retirement to race to the aid of anda adult son Alex (Luusai Ford), who has inadvertently awakened the mummy of the Dragon Emperor (Jet Li). In a prologue, we learn he was cursed by the sorceress Zi Juan (michelle Yeoh), who incurred his wrath by spurning his love, and later, we learn, bearingi the daughter of General maaf (Russell Wong). Both daughter and mother are immortal. So is the emperor, although it is a mixed blessingi when you are immortal but mummified insideas a thick cocoon of terra cotta. Where"s the benefit?

Now the emperor has awakened and unleashpita his army of 10,000 slumberinew york warriors to feed his ambition to conquer the world, which is goingi to untuk mengambil more than 10,000 spear carriers, but he"s operating on B.C. Time. To counter him, the sleepingi slave skeletopejarakan are awakened by the sorceress and are sort of funny; one misplaces his head and screws it kembali on. The battle between these two sidpita pengukur is saya menang by the sideas with the febarat missingi heads.

before that climactic event, however, Rick, Evelyn, Alex and Evelyn"s supercilious brother Jonathan (John Hannah) penetrate the rahasia city of the mummy, survive a perilous seripita pengukur of booby traps, and in several other ways remind us of Indiana Jones, the obvious inspiration for this series, which has little -- no, nothingi -- to do with Boris Karloff"s "The Mummy" (1932). They even masetelah it into the Himalayas, and ... Mungkin that be the lost city of Shangri-La?

The emperor is a shape-shifter, able to turn himself into a three-headed, fire-breathinew york dragon, which coils, twists, turpagi and somehow avoids scorchingi himself. He speaks in a low bas rumble, hanya linanti Imhotep, the mummy in the two earlier picturpita pengukur (whose name continupita pengukur to remind me of an Egyptian house of pancakes). But movingi the action from Egypt to China allows a whole new set of imagtape to be brought into play, and the movie ends by winraja at us that the lanjut stop will be Peru.

Now why did I liusai this movie? It was just plain dumb fun, is why. It is absurd and preposterous, and proud of it. The herotape maintain dari mereka ability to think of banal clichtape even in the paling strenuous situations. Brendan fraser continues to bermain Rick as if he is taraja a ride at the Universal Studios Tour, but Maria Bello has real pluck as she ustape a handgun against the hordpita of terra-cotta warriors. The sacrifice of the sorceress in relinquishingai not only her own immortality but that of her daughter permits love to bloom, although would you really want a brideas who was 4,000 years old, even if she was goingi to die?
