Re: Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor - Review&Discussion **SPOILERS**

Just saw it. IMO, it's much better than M2, which I really loathe. The comedy is so broad (especially with Rick and Evy in England) that it often plays more like a parody of the first two than a serious sequel, but anything's better than "Evy's a reincarnated princess". Ugh.

Because of the reviews, I was ready for it to be worse than it was, and it certainly wasn't great. "Decent" is my verdict.

It moves so quickly, with so little regard for characters or story, that it has an oddly small feel to it in a way even Temple of Doom doesn't have.

And the sequel tease was probably the cheesiest and laziest movie ending I've ever seen. Text, superimposed on the last shot?! You've gotta be kidding me!
