PG-13
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a 2008 adventure film and the third installment in The Mummy film franchise. Brendan Fraser reprises his role as the sarcastic mercenary Rick O'Connell, and this time around he's traveling to the Far East, where a resurrected Emperor from ancient times is raising a powerful and magical army that could take over the world. Centuries ago, the First Emperor of China, Emperor Han (Jet Li), learned how to control the five elements and became a mystical force. The Emperor was cursed and imprisoned in a tomb, where he would have remained trapped if an evil present-day General hadn't resurrected Han. Meanwhile, Rick and his wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) travel to China where their son, Alex (Luke Ford) has made some impressive discoveries. Once there, the family of adventurers once again become the world's only hope as Emperor Han begins to resurrect his imprisoned army, bent on world domination. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is an exciting film full of fantastic action and colorful characters.moreless
