Movies => The Mummy - Tomb of The Dragon Emperor

Today is the grand opening of The Mummy 3.. and since I started gymming at Calif Fitness in Sunway, I may as well watch the movie at TGV here.. so many people queueing for the movie.. but what I found out and kind of dissatisfied is the fact that TGV seats, which is so small and so uncomfortable.. and with no head rest too.. GSC and Cathay are far leaving them behind in terms of comfort and space.. so except for KLCC, the seats in TGV isn't that good.. may be it's time for TGV to upgrade.. Anyway.. let's check out what the movie is all about.. Synopsis:
Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex (newcomer Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah) to combat the resurrected Qin Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. This time, the O'Connells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse that threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service.
( *** Another series of Mummy after the previous 2.. Lots of CGI effects.. cool one! but I think the movie is just so-so.. which lacks of the WOW factor this time.. Personally, I do think that Brendan Fraser is too young to play a father character of the adult Alex.. in fact they look about the same age.. don't you agree with me? and another factor that I found distracting about the movie is that somehow it's turning into another Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh's Chinese epic movie rather than The Mummy. At some point, Brendan as the main character has been overshadowed by those 2.. doesn't seem like the main character anymore.. but overall, I still enjoyed the movie.. but really prefer the previous two Mummy movies, which I enjoyed better. Go watch the movie!
