The Mummy 3: Dragon Emperor

Went to see the Mummy. Hadn't really paid attention to the reviews too much. But agree with most of what I read. It wasn't as good as the previous ones but was still a good movie. One of the main critiques of the movie was the age gap/issue between the main male protagonist (Fraser) and his "son", who was aged on purpose. But he looks too old to be 22. Plus the fact that Weisz was not the mother did not help the continuation of storyline. Bello did well as the mother, but when one has learned to associate a particular actor/actress with a franchise, it is hard to let a new face in. That would like having someone else play Harry Potter. (Half Blood prince is coming out this year by the way.. looking forward to that as it was the first book of the series that I read.)

The special effects, the far-fetched plot, all of that .. gotta love it. but still not a rave review from me.. maybe 3 out of 5 or 2 1/2.
