The mummy 2008 reviews


I just saw the movie " the mummy" last week. I've always wanted to see this movie because i like the first two mummy movies. and it was really funny. Bu i don't think it was hell of a ride this time. This is just my opinion.

Honestly speaking, I was kind of disappointed, Maybe because i expected too much. Well i just like the first two ones that's all. First, it wasn't Rachel Weisz who play Mrs. Evie O'connel anymore. Although Maria Bello's acting was OK for me. I just thought that Ms. Weisz would've played the character better, The special effects is still spectacular but the story is just too light for me, i was looking for something else like i always do in other mummy movies, but i didn't find it this time. It seems like the movie started nicely but ended up with a lot of questions in my mind.

But there still one thing that made me like this movie after all. Its the Humor and Jonathan is still funny although i still think they should add more funny lines or parts to balance adventure comedy. I thought the movie still has story to tell but it ended so fast. The characters needed more connection. I dunno maybe it's just me.

The one star I plopped on this clunky bore-athon is due to the presence of the great Jet Li as the evil Dragon Emperor of the subtitle and the gorgeous Michelle Yeoh as Zi Yuan, a witch who's been on the Emperor¹s ass for over 2000 years.

martial-arts superstar Jet Li triumphs as the mostly wordless evil Emperor Han of ancient China, a glowing magma spirit locked in a terra cotta shell.

Still, Li makes a great villain, using his powers to create fire, ice and other elements.

Toward the end of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh launch into a vigorous sword fight — and what a grand pleasure it is to watch these two world-class stars in action again...Their duel atop the Great Wall of China is a reunion of titans, an Old Timers' Day for two actor-athletes still in their sinuous prime. Forgive the effusions of an alter-kocker fanboy, but the flinty glamour of Li and Yeoh — buttressed by the stolid, sneering presence of top Hong Kong villain Anthony Wong Chau-sang (who in 1993 appeared in 15 films!) — is the best reason to catch this third in the series of Indiana Jones knockoffs.

A memorably badass Jet Li.
