Chinese Mummy Is All Greek to Me

Brendan Fraser looks much too young to have a grown son! Otherwise, it's business as usual in mummy land. The plot remains the same, only now it's in Chinese. Formula fiction, like a thriller by Clive Cussler (the guy who's been writing the same book over and over again for twenty years now).

Apart from that, if you enjoy totally mindless action movies as much as I do, you'll love The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Well, maybe not totally mindless. I guess "Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!" and "Welcome to the twentieth century!" is about as close as you get to getting ideas into this sort of movie.

In the end, Evy's brother Jonathan (John Hannah) flees in despair to what he believes is mummy-free territory: "Goodbye Shanghai. Peru, here I come!"

Wanna guess where the next Mummy movie will be set?
