Universal Pictures The Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor WS (Blu-Ray)Filled with spectacular action and sharp banter, THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR finds the dashing Rick and Evelyn O’Connell (Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello, who took over for Rachel Weisz) called upon for another world-saving adventure. Thefilm opens in 50 B.C., when the ruthless Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) seeks to conquer one last enemy, death, and become an immortal ruler. But when the Emperor betrays an obliging sorceress (Michelle Yeoh), he and his army are cursed to spend an eternity in statuesque limbo. Fast forward to 1946, when Rick and Evelyn are struggling to adapt to their self-imposed retirement. But the fates have other plans, and soon the O’Connells are crossing paths with their somewhat estranged son, Alex (Luke Ford). While enthusiastically carrying on the family’s tomb-raiding traditions, Alex has unwittingly brought the Dragon Emperor back to life. With the world in peril, the O’Connells must overcome their differences to prevent the Dragon Emperor from gaining immortality for himself and his army. Along the way they’re joined by a mysterious young woman (Isabella Leong), a wily pilot, and a trio of Abominable Snowmen. Jumping from Shanghai to the Himalayas to the Chinese desert, director Rob Cohen (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) takes audiences on a breathless adventure that continues THE MUMMY’s love of quick wits, close calls and big battles. The result is a spirited romp that proves evil is no match against a family united.
