The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon EmperorDirected byRob Cohen
While there was no way a journeyman director like Rob Cohen was ever going to summon the Hollywood classicism of a true believer like Stephen Sommers, "Dragon Emperor" is better than it has any right to be. The action setpieces come fast and plentiful, Mario Bello is a perfectly suitable replacement as Evelyn, and it'd be difficult for me to outright hate any movie with martial arts-practicing abominable snowmen.
