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 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...

By Michael Sragow, The Baltimore Sun Aug. 1--(C-) Three yetis, a yak and a couple of yuks. That's all you get in the way of original entertainment in The Mummy: The Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, an extravagant and frenetic third entry in the franchise about adventurer Rick O'Connell ( Brendan Fraser) and his continuing fights with the embalmed yet undead. It's like an Indiana Jones movie without rhythm, wit or personality, just a desperate, headlong pace. It does have a sense of the...

By Soren Andersen, The News Tribune, Tacoma, Wash. Aug. 1--In a movie about ancient mysteries, about mystic spells that can reanimate the dead, about mythic creatures conjured to roaring, snarling life, the greatest mystery of "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" is this: How does a picture so obviously expensive wind up looking so cheesy and cheap? You can bet the people who made the movie spent a ton of dough on technical experts and all the other accouterments of modern-day...

By Craig D. Lindsey, The News & Observer, Raleigh, N.C. Aug. 1--In a summer that has been filled with movies and sequels nobody asked for (I'm sure many Americans are still wondering where that "X-Files" movie came from), "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" appears to be high atop the list. Heck, the last "Mummy" sequel -- that one with the big-screen debut of The Rock -- came out so long ago, I forgot it existed and thought this was the sequel to the original. Still, since...
