The Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
I never saw the first Mummy... but you really don't need to, Mummy 3 can act as a great stand-alone movie, you don't need to watch any previous movies and you don't need to watch any more to come to enjoy this movie.
Following in Hellboy 2's footsteps, to create a beutiful movie, this certainly makes a good try, perhaps not quite as spectacular as Hellboy 2, but still a cut above the rest...
Doesn't have a perfect story line, and doesn't delve into your emotions so much... but it doesn't particularly need that... Each film has it's specific qualities... with this film, just sit back and enjoy the ride... you'll really enjoy this... action packed and exciting!
For all you Mummy fans, I'm sure if you liked the second film, you will certainly love this one too, it is not a disgrace to the series!
Starring 2 great actors: Brendan Fraser and Jet Li, and with Rob Cohen at the helm, I'm sure you will have been expecting something good from this film... I'm sure you'll love it! I must say that I do miss Rachel Weisz as the heroine... not sure that the new girl quite reaches her standards...
Not quite as good as Indiana, but a nice alternative!
Movie rating: 8.75/10
