Movie Review - The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Last Friday went to Cathay Ang Mo Kio HUB with Hubby, Rina and Victor to catch the show (Although I am freaking tired and still have to work @ KFC the next day).

Cast: Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh

Director: Rob CohenGenre:Action/ Adventure

Language: English

Release Date:31 July 2008

Running Time:113 minutes


The blockbuster global Mummy franchise takes a spellbinding turn as the action shifts to Asia for the next chapter in the adventure series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

Brendan Fraser returns as explorer Rick OConnell to combat the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Rick is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex (newcomer Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). And this time, the OConnells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse who threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service.

Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh) to spend eternity in suspended animation, Chinas ruthless Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have laid forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. But when dashing adventurer Alex OConnell is tricked into awakening the ruler from eternal slumber, the reckless young archaeologist must seek the help of the only people who know more than he does about taking down the undead: his parents. As the monarch roars back to life, our heroes find his quest for world domination has only intensified over the millennia. Striding the Far East with unimaginable supernatural powers, the Emperor Mummy will rouse his legion as an unstoppable, otherworldly force...unless the OConnells can stop him first.

Now, in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the trademark thrills and visually spectacular action of the Mummy series will be redefined for a new generation.

Errmmm.. I should say this show is not that kinda "VERY NICE" or "MUST WATCH SHOW". But I should say it's rather a break through with so many Chinese acting in English show.. Hahaha... At times I was wondering if I am watching a Chinese movie or English movie.. Anyhow, do watch the show if you have the time. With their funny dialogue and creatures, I think it's still worthwhile..
