The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen continues the tale set into motion by director Stephen Sommers with this globe-trotting adventure that finds explorer Rick O'Connell and son attempting to thwart a resurrected emperor's (Jet Li) plan to enslave the entire human race. It's been 2,000 years since China's merciless Emperor Han and his formidable army were entombed in terra cotta clay by a double-dealing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh), but now, after centuries in suspended animation, an ancient curse is about to be broken.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Making the farcical tenor of the recent Indiana Jones film feel like a paragon of dramatic and archaeological integrity, this phoned-in action threequel doesn't even have the good grace to deliver on its title and feature any mummies"
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"The best news about this clangorous clunker is that it may well have vanquished the Mummy franchise."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Pray that this is a franchise that's dead for good this time."
‑ Ali Gray,
"It's a deafening, blinding department store Blu-ray demo reel that's spun wildly out of control...Tomb takes the franchise to a stunning new low.""
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"...this thing is cursed."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"I was never a fan of the first two, but those are masterpieces compared to this clunk 'o junk."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Remarkably, the plot has much in common with Hellboy II: The Golden Army, yet that bundle of fun has enough vision to make even its Barry Manilow interlude seem appropriate."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"A movie series called The Mummy is naturally going to have a limited focus. Universal might have been better off focusing on the various adventures of Rick and Evelyn to give them a wider range of material. But they haven't, so mummies it is."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"I too wish this Mummy stayed dead and buried."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"How anyone ever thought there was more than one movie in the Mummy concept, I don't know."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"For a movie about the undead, this lacks any supernatural chills, and by the time its obligatory final showdown arrives, it seems as hollow as the terra cotta soldiers brought to life by CGI."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"The story is no more than a thread stitching set pieces of increasing implausibility and ineptitude."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"The makers of the wildly lucrative Mummy franchise are flogging a dead corpse ... the adventure that's been disinterred is more than a little whiffy."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"obviously the low-grade stuff: users will get their fix but recognize it's been cut too thin, no matter how many bells and whistles were crammed into the mainframe."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Another enjoyable bit of high adventure and malarkey."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
