Review: 'The Mummy' not as good as previous outings

2008-08-10 00:00

Brendan Fraser returns as Rick O’Connel in the latest instalment of the popular Mummy franchise, and this time around his exploits lead to Asia where he is assisted by wife Evelyn (Maria Bello), son Alex (Luke Ford), guide Lin (Isabella Leong) and three computer-generated abominable snowmen.

The first half-hour of the film is a touch drab and drawn out as the history of both the Dragon Emperor and our characters is established, and while it may take some time to build steam, when the mummy does get going the viewer is continuously bombarded with relentless action that doesn’t cease until the closing credits. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
