On the silly popcorn scale, it works pretty well.

Not that violent, in which it is. But it's too sensual and has a lot of nudity.

The sexual content was sort of graphic. In many scenes you can almost see her breasts.

Great spin-off with nice acting

This was a great addition to the Mummy franchise. It might not compare to the first film, but it's definitely better than the second, and it was good enough to start a franchise of it's own sequels (which were not as good). It's acting is very nice and the humor is well-balanced. But it seems not to fit the Scorpion King's description shown in The Mummy Returns: in that film, he was said to be evil and power-hungry, but here he is a hero and a good role model. I guess I like him better this way. It's not The Rock's type of movie, but he is nonetheless very dedicated and proves to turn the movie into a thrill ride of fun.

Bad mainstream flick aims at money and lacks... everything.

"The Mummy" was not something great, but at least it was funny. Then "The Mummy Returns" followed and was also funny. Then they decided to make a prequel/spinoff from TMR. The movie is boring, thinking it is original and epic, but fails at everything. The Rock acts like he is a robot, the effects are pretty average, the plot is somewhat familiar, the script features no memorable quotes and it is just a bad movie. That is all i can say. But at least it is better than "Scorpion King 2" which was literally the worst movie i have ever seen. But still, this is just bad. The violence in this movie is not that strong. You briefly see a decapitated head, of which i think, that children under the age of 12 will not handle. But it is not a bloody movie or something.
