THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR DIRECTOR: Rob Cohen CAST: Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello, Luke Ford, John Hannah, Michelle Yeoh, Isabella Leong, Liam Cunningham. RATING: 12A .*** THE MUMMY franchise is in a pretty poor state for this, its third resurrection. It trails lacklustre lines like loose bandages and plotlines from other hit films have clearly been dusted off and hopefully attached. Rob Cohen picks up where original writer director Stephen Sommers left off...

By Nicholas Barber Film 2 The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Rob Cohen 113 MINS, 12A Elegy Isabel Coixet 108 MINS, 15 The 1999 fun adventure yarn, The Mummy, and its terrible 2001 sequel, The Mummy Returns, were inspired - to put it delicately - by Indiana Jones, so it was a curious move of the producers to bring their franchise back from the grave at the very moment when Harrison Ford and co decided to do the same. But that's not their only curious move. They've lumbered the...

DURING the past ten years, Maria Bello has been known more for her serious dramatic roles in critically-acclaimed indie hits such as The History Of Violence and The Cooler. So to see her in a sword- wielding, kickass action role in the third Mummy film is something of a surprise. But not for the 41-year-old actress herself. The US star, who takes on the role of Evelyn alongside Brendan Fraser in the film, has long dreamed of starring in an action flick. "It was a blast," she says. "I...

U.S.-Canadian action movie star Brendan Fraser says he thinks he is getting pretty good at dodging and fighting, if need be, computer-generated creatures. Fraser had two films in the Top 10 at the U.S. box office this weekend -- Journey to the Center of the Earth at No. 5 and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, his third Mummy outing, at No. 2. Am I an expert (at running from and fighting computer-animated adversaries)? Fraser said with a laugh, while talking to reporters in New York...

By JAMES VERNIERE "THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR" Rated PG-13. At AMC Loews Boston Common, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters. Grade: B- "Mummy" mia, indeed - when it comes to "Mummy" sequels, there is no such thing as too much CGI or enough yak vomit. There is also no such thing as lifting too many plot points and action tropes from the "Indiana Jones" series. "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" is the latest in the amiable series that has satisfied our - ahem -...

By Rick Bentley, The Fresno Bee, Calif. Aug. 1--The third offering in the "Mummy" series, "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor," is the kind of fast-moving, mummy-butt-kicking action that is so much fun to watch in the summer. It's light entertainment. It just could have been better. The action takes place in 1946. Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) and his wife, Evelyn, have settled into a life of stuffy retirement. The role of Rick's spunky better half has been taken over by Maria...
