British actress Rachel Weisz says people facing hard times need entertainment to help them escape from their stressful lives. The 39-year-old actress can now be seen on screen in the film, The Brothers Bloom, which she describes as a lighthearted film about a con artist job, Parade magazine reported online Saturday. It's such hard times right now, people need to escape, Weisz said. People have to be able to forget their bank accounts and their worries -- all the stress on their minds. They...

By Hallie Woodward Archaeological adventurers Rick and Evelyn O'Connell are home at their estate. Rick is rambling around to pass the time. Evelyn is trying to write another book on the subject of mummies, but she's suffering from writer's block. Fortunately, before total boredom sets in during "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor," the duo is distracted by a foreign government's call. Together, they are to deliver the "Eye of Shangri- La," a magnificent diamond, to China....

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...

By Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot, Norfolk, Va. Aug. 1--Show me the Mummy! It seems a reasonable request. Yet, amid the outrageous excess that characterizes the modern sequel, we get more mumbo jumbo than mummy here. Visually, this third edition has all that computers and huge Chinese sets can produce. Lots to see, but none of it is even remotely involving or dangerous. We need danger. And, while you're at it, give us back Rachel Weisz, the fetching, feisty British rose who...

By Chris Hewitt, Pioneer Press, St. Paul, Minn. Aug. 1--The actor who comes off best in "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" is the one who opted out: Rachel Weisz. Everyone else flounders in the incompetently directed third "Mummy" movie, and poor Maria Bello, who steps into Weisz's role as the adventure-loving wife of heroic Brendan Fraser, fares the worst. Director Rob Cohen allowed her to play her role at an energy level about 50 percent peppier than everyone else's, so she sounds...

By Stephanie Schomer We probably could have done without this resurrection. "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor," the third installment in the franchise, may satisfy your need to see Brendan Fraser once again crush the corpses of evil rulers and their soldiers, but the movie is too aspirational, too showy, and has lost most of the charm that caused moviegoers to fall in love with the first two films. Let's be honest: The first two "Mummy" movies offered little more than fun,...
