Not the best movie, but ok. for 10 and up.

The only concern I would consider is the violence and scary scenes. No bad language to speak of. As far as quality, nothing like the first two Mummy movies. Has gone down hill

Mummy Overkill

I am a huge fan of the Mummy films from the early 2000s, and those were well-made and wrapped up the story just fine. I loved the acting and characters. I don't think this movie should've been made. Sure, it's great to add onto a classic series, but not with a completely different cast with terrible acting ability. It has nothing to do with the previous films, and well, let's face it- the storyline sucks. There is random humor thrown in everywhere, the only of which is funny are Jonathan's lines. The script is just as bad as the acting. I think the film would've worked and be less of a corny spinoff if Rachel Weisz was still in it, but it's still a mummy overkill...this one should've stayed dead.

Thankfuly, it's much beter than the second

This is a much better movie than the second one, has some isues though:
1. violence including guns, swords, and hand to hand combat, some blood, chacters killed.
2. sexual inuendo and kissing
3. LAnguage includes: Ba--ard, son of a B--ch, and H--l
4. drinking
So this is a much better movie than the second one, (witch if you saw may god have mercy on your soul) o.k for teens

A failure of epic proportions

Such a bad movie considering the other two were pretty reasonable.

Action-Packed, Funny, and Completely Enjoyable!

The only things keeping THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRANGON EMPORER from being a 5-star movie are the length of a couple sequences that run too long and a couple of parts that are just too implausible. Other than that, it is an awesome film. Now, I haven't seen the second MUMMY film (just this and the first), but I can say that this is probably the best in the franchise. A witty script, perfectly timed action, impeccable humor and acting, and pervasive edge-of-your seat suspense make this film perfectly enjoyable.
However, it is very violent. The violence is almost constant, and, while most of it isn't graphic, some of it it. People disintegrate into mud while burning alive, a man explodes in a pool of blood while melting, and people and mummies alike are shot, stabbed, and blown to high heaven. Language is frequent but mild: "a*s", "d**n", "h*ll", and "SOB". There are a few playful, harmless sexual innuendos between a husband and wife.

Not good!!

I think the first mistake they made was recasting the leading female. If for some reason the actress/actor who carried the roll in the first two movies can't or won't come back for a third....get rid of that character and introduce a new one. Death, divorce, whatever, but don't recast. We viewers aren't that dumb. Mind you, the actress is a great actress, so it's not her fault.

Second, um, he wasn't even a mummy.

Ok, it had it's violence, but if you saw the first two, it wouldn't be a surprise. Most of the special effects were very well done and always Jet Li is fantastic.

The Mummy 3 is incoherent and poorly made

“The 3rd mummy movie has a good action set piece at the very end and a reasonably fast pace; But ultimately the movie is painfully clichéd and awful. Character development is lacking (a lot), the characters themselves are one dimensional, the script is predictable and cliché, the CGI is awful (though it is an improvement from the first two mummy films); the climax is awful (ends on a blink and you’ll miss ending). In the end I would not recommend this movie.” The movie is violent and there is a little bit of language as well. In the end, this is how you Should NOT make a movie.

perfectly made action flick is gorier than the first 2

this great 3rd installment in the Mummy series is very violent and heavily packed with gore. a man melts, coughing up mud, a man is pulled in 2 by horses. there are sword, gun, and fist fights, along with severed limbs, decapitation, and scary creatures. the Dragon Emperor turns into scary monsters.
