Movie review of The Mummy 3: Tomb of the dragon emperor

The Mummy 3: Tomb of the dragon emperor - 2.5/10
Directed by Rob CohenCast - Brendan Fraser,Maria Bello,Michelle Yeoh,Jet Li

Plot Summary
In the Far East, trouble-seeking father-and-son duo Rick and Alex O'Connell unearth the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin -- a shape-shifting entity who was cursed by a wizard centuries ago.

This is by far definitely the worst movie of the mummy series.Everything went wrong,from plot to script to special effects to acting.why on earth did they do this movie?The first 2 mummy movies was based in egypt which was good.why they had to change location let alone an entire different folklore...I have no idea.what's next?? doing a movie in india?? aka the mummy 4:rise of the maharajah?
As an action movie director,Rob Cohen is next to shit.The fella's direction is horrible,all the action sequences are boring and ridiculous.The CGI for this movie was rubbish as well.I hated it when Jet Li's character rejuvenates himself with fire whenever his face starts to fall off.That was god awful.To make matters worse,terrible editing did not help this movie one bit.
I wouldnt be surprised if the story was written by a retard cause one moment you have chinese mummies,then suddenly you have chinese communist armies and at one point of time you have abdominable snowmen...yes you would probably be saying that in a question mark..just as exactly as Brandon fraser would phrase it into this movie.What the fuck happened there?And there are so many obvious mistakes in this movie.Like for an example,Jet Li's character was turned into mummy he was in the palace,and when he awakes the motherfucker is sitting on a chariot with stone horses.and thats not all.2000 years ago,he had a moustache and when he awoke,he was clean shaven...WHO THE FUCK SHAVED OFF HIS MOUSTACHE????
As for acting wise,nothing good as well.It was a good thing that Rachel Weiss did not want to be part of this movie cause she knew it was gonna be shit.To replace a british actress,you get an american actress with a fake shitty british accent is what I would call a really stupid move.I love Maria Bello,she is an outstanding actress(The Cooler) but the way she acted in this movie was bad.Brandon Fraser..well he acted as a caveman(The Encino Man) for god's sake.The son,Luke Ford can fuck off and die and so can his lovebird,Isabella Leong.Michelle Yeoh's character is a 2000 year old immortal witch living in a cave in china and wears exuberant clothes and speaks english...Nuff said.Like I said before in my previous reviews,Jet Li is great when he is the baddie and shouldnt be speaking english which is what he did for the mummy 3.but unfortunately for the bad script and plot,it didnt help one single bit.check this out,Jet Li's character is a dragon emperor who has control of five elements and can also turn into a 3 headed dragon and a really big doglike thingy.Need I say more?

Do not bother wasting your money on this horse shit they call The Mummy 3.

Sounds like Tomb of the Dragon Emperor was a lot of what most people expected... Brendan Frasier tries too hard to act, so you can tell he's acting
