Known Trivia

  • The tomb of the Dragon Emperor, with its terracotta warriors, is inspired by the real-life tomb of the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, in Xi’an, China.
  • Brendan Fraser and John Hannah are the only actors to appear in all three Mummy movies.
  • Brendan Fraser, who plays Rick, was born in 1968. Maria Bello who plays Evelyn, was born in 1967. Luke Ford, who plays their son Alex, was born in 1981, making him 13 years younger than Fraser and 14 years younger than Bello.
  • The small device that triggers a trap by dropping a bronze marble from a dragon’s mouth to a frog’s mouth is inspired by an ancient instrument that could predict the direction of a coming earthquake. It is considered the first seismograph.
  • The crossbow traps in the tomb scene are based in reality. According to Chinese archaeologists, the excavation of the Terracotta Army is progressing so slowly partly because the site is filled with similar traps.
  • After the emperor has been awakened, the heroes ride in a cart containing fireworks. The box has “Tse Kar Wai” written on it. This is an alternate name for Doris Tse, a co-producer on the film.
  • This marks the Hollywood debut for Chinese martial arts sensation Wu Jing (Jacky Wu), who has a cameo as one of the assassins having a brief but furious battle with fellow Wu Shu expert Jet Li at the beginning of the film.
  • The airplane used to fly to Shangri-La, based on the Bristol Beaufighter widely used by Britain and Australia in World War II, might reasonably be expected to be available in China. Built as a two-seat fighter-bomber, it was never converted into a passenger-carrying aircraft, but such a conversion might have been theoretically possible. The aircraft shown is based on a real one, completed on 04/02/45 and assigned to 93 Sqn based st Kingaroy. It carried the code SK-N, and was nicknamed “Babs.” On the rudder was a large gremlin, “pistol pakin’ gremlin.” She was crewed by WOFF L.W. Mutton (pilot) and FLTSGT C.G. Curthoys (navigator/radio operator/rear gunner.) On 09/11/45 she suffered a forced landing at Neomfoor after the starboard engine seized. She went into storage on 09/02/46 and was struck off on 08/08/49. 93 Sqn was formed on 22 Jan 1945 without an official name or motto but unofficially became the “Green Ghost Squadron” with the unofficial motto “Spookus Sneakinus”. Mid 1945 the squadron transferred to Labuan, an island off Borneowith the mission to disrupt Japanese shipping and airfields. In August 1945 the squadron was sent to destroy a Japanese oil tanker; the ship was sunk but turned out to be the 800 ton private yacht of the Rajah of Sarawak. 93rd Squadron was disbanded on 22 Aug 1946.
  • The box of explosives read “Voeten Dynamite”. This is a nod to First Assistant Director P.J. Voeten.
  • The plot element of Jonathan Carnehan as the owner of a casino attacked by the bad guys, was planned for The Mummy Returns, but was cut due to budget constraints and brought back for this film.

Goofs: Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When Evelyn discovers the bullet in the trout, she pulls it out of her mouth. In the next shot of the left side of her face, she pulls the bullet out again. However, given Rick's personality, it is quite possible that he shot it twice.

Plot: In the Far East, Alex O'Connell, the son of famed mummy fighters Rick and Evy O'Connell, unearths the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin — a shape-shifting entity cursed by a witch centuries ago. Full summary »  »

Story: Centuries ago, the evil Emperor Han was cursed by the sorceress Zi Yuan who transformed him and his army into mummies. In 1946, the explorer Rick O'Connell and his wife Evelyn O'Connell are invited by the British government to take a relic, the diamond "The Eye of Shangri-La" to China. The ancient stone is capable of resurrecting the Emperor Han and of pointing the way to Shangri-La and the eternal pool of life. When the couple reaches China, they meet their son Alex O'Connell, who has discovered the tomb of Han, and Evelyn's brother Jonathan Carnahan. The O'Connells are betrayed by their friend Prof. Roger Wilson, who is associated with General Yang. Yang wants to serve Emperor Han, so he resurrects the mummy and they head for Shangri-La. The guardian of Han's tomb (and Zi's daughter) Lin tells them that the only ways to destroy Han is to prevent him from reaching Shangri-La or by stabbing his heart with a cursed dagger.Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  

Synopsis

Synopsis: 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 O’Connell to combat the resurrected Qin 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 O’Connells 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, China’s ruthless Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have lain forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. But when dashing adventurer Alex O’Connell 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 O’Connells can stop him first.

    My 11 year old son dragged us to see this. I don't spend as much timewith the kid as I ought to. So, I happily paid the $40 for admissionand gold-plated popcorn bucket. I didn't know Rachael W. wasn't in thisone, and I can now say she rocks. Looks, talent, AND brains to avoid acelluloid crap-fest when she sees it. Anyway:

    15 minutes into the film, the kid turns to me and says "I'm sorry Imade you see this". I say "Oh, it's okay. We're at the movies together,having fun!"; he didn't believe my acting any more than he did thatawful woman who's trying her best, apparently, to fake 3 differentEnglish accents (or was one of them Australian) and pretend she'senjoying being on screen in this TURD.

    30 minutes into the film: I'm wishing I had a cellphone, so I couldcall in a bomb threat and get the theater emptied.

    45 minutes into the film: I go to the bathroom. Theatre-hop into themiddle of Mamma Mia. No kidding. Stay there for about 5 minutes (duringthe "Does Your Mama Know" number. Seen it twice; love it.

    60 minutes into the film: Discover the kid has fallen asleep. We're ata 5 pm showing, by the way.

    75 minutes into the film: I have the worst luck in theatres; if there'sa crying baby, his parents will sit immediately behind me. If there's aperson whose hearing was damaged by too much disco, he'll sit beside meand shout questions at his wife or boyfriend through the whole thing.You know; things like this have made me spend the money and buy a hometheater with 9' screen. I still love going to the theater, however.Anyway, when the 4 year old that sits near us starts talking in his"outside voice" to his obviously deaf Grandma and Pa (or is itGreat-Grandma and Pa), instead of yelling "Shut UP!" like I normallydo, I start listening to HIM; it's actually more entertaining.

    90-something minutes into the film: Now, I'm no longer wishing for thecellphone and have gone straight to wishing I had an actual bomb, so Icould get the theater emptied out.

    The End of the Film: the bedraggled audience weakly applauds the factthat it's over. No kidding. I hear people leaving, saying things like"maybe we can get our money back", and "That SUCKED". I've never heardthings like that on exit from a movie like this before, and I see a LOTof movies. The kid apologizes again. I say "You OWE me. Big Time." Hesays "I'm soooo sorry this sucked so bad".

    Did you get that, moviemaker sellouts? An 11 year old kid! Loves StarWars, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. YOURTARGET AUDIENCE. And your movie is SO bad, he feels GUILTY about mespending our money to see it! Where can I send this bill I've createdfor having my intelligence insulted by Mario Bello, a beautiful womanwho's apparently never even HEARD of England? Maybe it's not her fault.Maybe her family has B-S'd her all her life, telling her how she sounds"just like those Harry Potter movies" or something. Pathetic is not aword that comes close. I'll have to create a new one:Skantasticalistically Snarxious. Trust me. Burn your money. Don't evengo to it thinking you'll be able to make fun of it, like Rocky Horror.Let's all pitch in and bury this deep, like you're supposed to do withrotting corpses.

    Geez. BTW< I would not suggest calling in a bomb threat. Nope, never doTHAT. It's bad. And stay in school. Drugs are for losers. Vote. Tipyour waiters.

    I was able to catch this movie at a test screening in California whilei was on vacation and its not much of a film. Its the same story as theprevious ones and most of the stuff in the movie were taken from themas well. I love Brendan Fraser but he didn't look happy to be there andwith how the story was set up, you can't blame him for lookingmiserable. He has no chemistry with Maria Bello, who was just awful(She's no Rachel Weisz, that's for damn sure.) and he has even lesschemistry with his own son played by Luke Ford, who has the charismaand the charm of a brick, not to mention the fact that he looks just asold as both Fraser and Bello. Fraser has more chemistry with JohnHannah, who is a welcome distraction from the lousiness of the film.The movie itself is just a flat headed mess of bad visual effects withno soul. Jet Li lacks the menacing presence of Arnold Vosloo from theprevious films but that problem is more than less on the shoulders ofthe director, who was in my opinion more concern with the style of thefilm than any substance it could have had and because of that, Jet Liand most of the cast got the short end of the stick and it shows.

    They should have ended it with the second film but instead, we have amovie that manages to make even "The Scorpion King" look as good asIron Man.

    A true honest review? Some true honest advice? Don't waste your time onthis, its terrible.

    I am a true fan of the original. I like the way it was weaved togetherwith interesting characters, hammy dialogue and breath taking actionsequences not to mention a beautiful location and some great plotdevices. Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weiz lit up the screen with hischarisma and her likability factor. They made a good screen presenceand carried the story along until its fantastic action packed finale. Ialso like the way the producers mixed up the scenes, to spoon out notonly violent and eerie scenes involving the main villain himself but towater it down to family standards with John Hannah's comical brother.It was a film of epic proportions. A fun story, likable characters andgood use of live action and cgi, for the most part. Then about 2 yearslater Universal ran out of idea's and so decided to return to thebandwagon to churn out another cash cow sequel. 'The Mummy Returns' wasreleased and whilst not as good as the original at least had thedecency to be spectacular enough for the risibility. Fraser and Weizreturned (having made an offspring) and warbled, walloped and crashedthrough the bustling busy streets in a less than original screenplaybut at least maintained their charm and kept the spark glowing from thefirst film. It was a likable sequel, and whilst no where near as goodas its ancestor still managed to be entertaining.

    So here we are folks. 2008 and yet again we are re-visiting a tiredseries. The next gruesome threesome to bring home to Hollywood is notonly the worst of the Mummy films, but quite possibly the worst sequelof the year to date. Its so bad in fact that even Rachel Weiz turned itdown, but its not surprising having listened to some of the laughablydire dialogue churned out here. I bet she took one look at the scriptand threw it in the trash can. The story goes something like this…Brendan Fraser (back as Rick O'Connell) his wife Maria Bello (yes theyreplaced her with someone with half as much talent) her brother JohnHannah (what is he doing in this?)and their son Luke Ford (who has nowaged by about 20 years) are somehow prancing around in their ordinarylives (in the Far East?) but suddenly the son awakens an evil MummyEmperor (because hey thats what your bound to do in a movie like this)who wants to use his army of the undead to take over the world and getrevenge on the sorceress who put him to sleep so many years ago. Theonly people who can stop him are the O'Connels who crash and bangthrough armies of stone beasts, supernatural winds and all sorts ofother unoriginal menaces. Of course the showdown at the end will resultin global domination or ultimate Savior. But by that time, you justwont care.

    So.. why do I hate this one? when when one of the main stars from theoriginal backs down and bails out and when the other looks boredthroughout the whole darn thing you know you have a problem on yourhands. And its sad because Brendan Fraser makes it blatantly obvioushow unhappy he is reprising the role without Weiz by his side. He isnever able to connect with Bello who tries to be chirpy but comes offlooking rather ridiculous as the smart girl. And there we have anotherproblem. Bello just cannot squeeze into Weiz's cleverly filled shoes.Its embarrassing to watch her warble on and you can really tell shefelt uncomfortable trying to live up to the characters standards. Thesame can be said for Luke Ford, who makes a very unconvincing actionhero-sidekick next to Fraser. Again they have no spark or connectionwhat so ever. It feels like a cheap decision casting Ford because henever really brings any emotion, good or bad to the screen. Theexception here is Jet Li, who whilst is not as menacing as ArnoldVosloo (the original mummy) still pulls off a good dark role. Its freshseeing him portraying an evil character and it pays off when he isactually on screen. However his presence is short lived and at timesfeels like a guest appearance. And of course John Hannah who neverdisappoints and steals the show altogether with his one liners andwitty charm. He almost makes this passable. Almost.

    The movie deserves another good kick in, this time for its overly usedCGI action sequences which feel cheap, tacky and unoriginal. Imagine aRoger Corman flick added into a Uwe Boll video game adaptation and yourhalfway there. The sets are nice to look at, but the CGI is reallydistracting and you can tell they did things all by computers. Thecharacter development is replaced with an endless array of pointlessbattle sequences. Pointless !

    Its also really degrading seeing our much loved characters from thefirst movies spout lines of almost ridicule. Brendan Fraser cringes ashe reads his lines (is he auditioning for the high school play?)andlike I said Bello looks uncomfortable. Even Hannah looks bored andwhilst trying to rescue this epic failure always looks like he wants tobe doing better things. Like the ironing for example.

    There is just so much to bash this movie about. Its an obvious cash in,but even fails at being entertaining. It doesn't live up to the firstor even the second. It is boring, confusing and the characters arebland. The action is over the top and don't get me started on thescreenplay. Its just an all round failure and should be buried in theTomb of the title, never to be re-awakened.

    I really like the Mummy series for its epic action, sense of humor andgreat special effects. I was very excited when I started seeing teasersfor this sequel to be shown in July, mostly because it was quiteunexpected.

    This movie has all the required elements of epic action, sense of humorand great special effects. Of course there is still the swashbucklinghero Rick O'Connell played in grand style by Brendan Fraser. Heundoubtedly has this action-comedy genre sewn up right in his alley.John Hannah is still around playing his brother-in-law, Jonathan, inhis old annoying manner.

    For the new stuff, the setting shift to China as the titular "Mummy"now refers to an ancient Chinese emperor who desired immortality,played by Jet Li (who really personified his anti-hero role with relishhere). The emperor sought the help of a "witch" (played with muchbravado by Michelle Yeoh), with whom he gets attracted to. However, thewitch fell in love with his main general (played by Russell Wong, whomyou'd wonder why he isn't getting more breaks in Hollywood). From hencestarts the conflict and the resultant curse on which the movie stands.

    The requisite martial arts you would expect in a movie set in China areof course in full play. Very well choreographed, especially thatthrilling sword fight between Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh. The excitingaction sequences inside the booby-trapped lost tomb, the truck andchariot (!) chase in the streets of Shanghai and the final fightsequence with the "Mummy" are all executed very well as in the twoprevious installments.

    But then there are the drawbacks that for me pulls this one down to afive star rating. The quality of the spoken Mandarin is at timesunintelligible. However, the major beef involves what for me areseverely miscast actors.

    The actor who plays the now college-aged son of the O'Connells, Alex,looks too mature to be the son of Brendan Fraser. I just checked to seethat the actor Luke Ford was born in 1981, but he looked older thanthat, so it was a bit of a stretch to believe that he is Brendan's son.Furthermore, he also does not act like a son, but more like Brendan'syounger brother.

    But the worst and damaging mistake was the decision to cast Maria Belloin the beloved role of Evelyn O'Connell, which is wholly owned by themore beautiful and credible Rachel Weisz. I felt absolutely NOchemistry between Maria and Brendan. Her acting was also quite wretchedwhen compared to Ms. Weisz, who was able to maintain herintellectuality, demureness and gentility on top of her topnotchfighting skills. Ms. Bello fails miserably in this regard to recapturethe unique character of Evie we have loved before, in my opinion.

    I do have a question, what ever happened to the slow walking lameEgyptian mummies? I mean, as silly as they are, they're stillentertaining. Now we have The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Iloved The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, it was watchable, but this one wasjust an excuse to make some quick cash. I was actually looking forwardto seeing this movie, I got the opportunity to see it today, I wasexcited, but unfortunately, we now have Chinese mummies that can doanything that will fit into the CGI budget. Another disappointment wasthe recasting of Evelyn, I know Rachel Weisz turned this script down,but she was seriously needed, Maria Bella, who is a decent actress,actually made Evie a very flat character and not as enjoyable. Then notonly that, but we have Brendan and Maria who do look incredibly goodfor their age, they have a 20 year old son in the movie? This story wasa waste of time and money.

    The Emperor of China wanted to rule the entire world, but when aChinese witch curses him and his army, he is put to sleep for thousandsof years. Rick and Evie are now retired and have lost the spark intheir relationship, but when they are asked to go to Shanghai todeliver a small little ball, they bump into their son who hasdiscovered the Emperor. Rick and Evie are forced to wake the mummy byhis followers. Now the whole family with Jonathan and the protector whowas supposed to keep the emperor from rising, must destroy the Emperoror he will take over the entire world.

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor has some OK moments, I loved thebeginning story and the ending battle scene is held pretty strong, it'sworth the look for that, but I would say this is more of a rental. It'sjust a sad disappointment, considering how much better it could havebeen. The one liners were too cheesy and we have three headed dragons,karate kicking abdominal snow men, why not just go all the way and haveleprechauns with machine guns? That's how out of control the CGIeffects are. Luke Ford makes Brandon Fraiser look like Marlon Brandowith his acting and the love story between him and the protector girlwas useless. Like I said, wait for the rental, not the worst movie ofthis year, but a huge let down for sure.

    I was able to see this film about a month ago in a preview screeningand to put it in kind words, its terrible. Jet Li is about the onlygood thing about the film but he's hardly in it. Brendan Fraser wasphoning in his performance and looked if he was waiting from a callfrom his agent to get him out of the movie. Maria Bello looked goofyand miscast and the actor who plays their son makes Hayden Christensenfrom the Star Wars films look like an Oscar winner. John Hannah managesto bring some laughs to the table but his stick is not as fresh as itwas before and Michelle Yeoh does not really do much with her role.This movie lacks the creepiness of the first two Mummy movies and thestone warriors of this movie don't hold a candle to the ghouls of thefirst two films at all. Not to mention the fact that the visual effectsin this film look even worse than the second film(The Mummy Returns).The film itself seemed toned down in the fun and thrills department andjust feels tired in certain scenes not to mention the dialogue, whichseems like it was written by a five year old. This film seemed like aquick payday from all involved and sadly with the little effort spentin giving the audience something to root for and care for, its justfeels like no one even cared about what they were making.

    This movie is painful to watch.

    The special effects are decent, but everything else is an absolutemess. The first half of the movie is a series of cringeworthy jokes andatrocious dialog. Once the action picks up, it doesn't get much betterbecause of how campy and cheesy the action really is.

    There is a big final battle at the end, but even that's prettydisappointing.

    At one point, a Yeti throws a dude through another Yeti's arms,simulating a goal.

    This movie is bad… Really bad.

    Like so many great movies that became dragged-out trilogies, the newestMummy falls right in. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved the firstmovie. But like so many sequels, this story line becomes repetitive.The first rule of sequels is to keep the cast. Rachel and Brendan andan amazing chemistry, but Maria Bello was abysmal as the new Evelyn.Her fake British accent and melodramatic acting was inexcusable. Thesets looked like they were built by 3rd graders, the effects wereoverwhelming, the scenes were disjointed and the cheesy one-liners gotold fast. Sure, Brendan Fraser still looks hot in a tux, but he stilllooks 35 even though his son is in his young 20s. Overall, I wasterribly disappointed. I wouldn't even bother seeing it intheaters…and please tell me this series is finally over.

    I was really disappointed by this movie. Seeing as I really enjoyed thefirst two Mummy movies, I thought that this one would be decent atleast. Anyway, let me explain why I thought this movie was terrible.This movie is nothing like previous Mummy films. At least the firstMummy, which was excellent because it combined drama with comedysuccessfully and had a good storyline. This one does a horrible job ofcombining drama with comedy. Whenever the Mummy 3 tries to be funny,which is most of the time(there is a bad joke every 30 seconds), itfails miserably, you end up trying to figure out a reason to laugh butcan't find one. Another thing was that the story was terrible, it feltboring and that it had no point(at one point in the movie I almost fellasleep from boredom). The action and effects are no good either. Thecreatures all look fake and are not convincing. The one thing that mademe laugh was how fake the effects were. In my opinion, I think that thestudio wanted to make big money and decided that a lot of people wouldgo see this movie out of curiostiy based on the success of the firsttwo. Then pulled a story out of nowhere and made this catastrophe. Allin all a disappointing movie that is only successful in boring itsaudience trying to be funny. The only funny thing is how bad this movieis.

    Since we saw Mummy III and Hellboy II as a drive-in double bill we'redoing sort of a twofer – reviewing both movies simultaneously andposting under both titles – because we discovered that we were actuallywatching the same movie twice. It was a fascinating way to see thesefilms; giving us the opportunity to directly compare and contrast themand analyze why one succeeded and the other failed.

    Synopsis: Ancient Relic must be returned to Undead Villain so thatVillain might be reanimated in order to summon his Demon Army anddestroy the World. Hero's task is to thwart this process. In the courseof attempting to prevent Armageddon, Hero is nearly killed but is savedat the last minute by Love. Hero's power is not great enough to stopVillain, so secondary characters must make the Ultimate Sacrifice inorder to dispatch Villain and Save the World. The End. If it all soundsfamiliar it's because it's also the plot of nearly every superhero orfantasy movie made over the last umpteen years. Note to Hollywood: It'stime to come up with a new plot line, OK? Please?

    We were expecting to enjoy Mummy III. First, there was Brendan Fraserand most of the cast of the previous Mummy films. Then there was therich potential of the setting – the Terra Cotta Warriors, the mysteryand lore of China…even a trip to Shangri-La and Yetis. The table wasset for a feast of mystery, wonder and enchantment. How could they notproduce an entertaining film out of all this?

    One word: Writing. We're always amazed when megabuck films apparentlycap the writing budget at a buck ninety-seven. Early on, didn't anyoneinvolved in this say, "Hey, the script we're working from reallystinks!"? The rich mythology available to them was utterly wasted bythe writers. Shangri-La was a cheesy set that served only as a platformfor one of the progressive plot elements. The Yeti, though well done,performed their little shtick and left the scene. One appearance by theshape-shifting villain as a three-headed dragon and so much for thefascinating potential of Chinese dragon lore. The hero's skeletal armycould have offered another little tribute to Ray Harryhausen (as wasdone so well in the first Mummy), but no, why bother? And the dialoguewas uniformly clumsy, blunt and contributed nothing to either characterdevelopment or plot movement.

    The writers in Mummy III were obviously in video game mode. Video gamesneed progressive plot tasks. So the Relic is returned to the Villain.But wait – now the Villain must carry a jewel to the mountains thatwill reveal the location of Shangri-La. But wait – now the Villain mustenter the waters of Shangri-La to be fully restored. But wait – now theVillain must return to his tomb and summon his Terra Cotta Army. Butwait – now the Army must make it over the Great Wall in order toachieve immortality. And so it goes. Played out like the levels of avideo game, and with even less explanation of the rationale than you'dget in a video game. These are game levels rather than story elements,and since the audience's need to be informed isn't fulfilled, it windsup not understanding – and consequently not caring about – what's goingon.

    In Hellboy II director/writer del Toro had the more difficult task.Without a wealth of Chinese mythology to squander, he had to invent hisown…but he does it so very well (to see what we mean, watch Pan'sLabyrinth – please!). Del Toro is an imaginative story teller and mythmaker and proves it in Hellboy II. He also appreciates something thewriters of Mummy III don't – the wonder of small magic. The singlemoment in Mummy III that made my wife "Ooooh!" was the transformationof the egg-thing that awakened the emperor. Beautifully done – but theonly thing of its kind in the movie. Everything else was bigger thanlife, overblown. In contrast, del Toro is full of small magic. Fromtooth fairies to troll markets to wheels within wheels, he understandsthat an audience can be just as enchanted by the small wonder as by thehuge spectacle. It's the difference between stage and close-up magic.Make an airliner disappear and I will only wonder about the mechanicsof how you did it. Make a coin float in mid-air before my eyes and Iwill be mystified.

    A hallmark of both the Mummy and the Hellboy franchises is theeffective use of humor. Mummy fell flat at every attempt. thanks toinept writing. Hellboy pulled it off very well – two love stricken,clueless guys getting plastered to Barry Manilow's "Can't Smile WithoutYou" was delightful. We also have to mention del Toro's mastery oflighting, set design and mood. His movies are consistently visuallyevocative, which makes a good movie even better.

    The movies shared one flaw with several other recent movies: climacticaction scenes that go into visual and auditory overload, causing theeyes to glaze over and reducing the ability to comprehend what's goingon. When we lose the ability to take in what you're showing us this isa bad thing. Please don't toss everything at us at once just becauseyou can – let us absorb your work so we can fully appreciate it. Hadthe intense action not drenched us a few times in Hellboy II it wouldhave another star.

    In summary, both movies had capable casts and premises with wonderfulpotential. Mummy III failed, sadly, to capitalize while Hellboy IIsucceeded very well. The difference was the quality of the writing andthe talent of the directing. We only wish the Mummy III crew could takea mulligan, sit down and take a few lessons from del Toro and tryagain. It's a shame that can't happen.
