Not particularly enjoying either Mummy flick, one might think that I wasn't looking forward to this. It's actually the other way around; with Sommers out of the director's chair, there was hope for something good. And really, as long as you don't think that this is more than it is, you may enjoy it. Think of Conan. Yes, this is a sword-and-sorcery adventure picture. No, it's not that compelling of one, but it can be entertaining. If you wondered where the titular character of this came from, well, here is... uh... some of that story. They do say that the first step of any journey is the hardest, so perhaps it is fitting that this isn't that great of a movie. The Rock has zero charisma(he needs to assign experience points to that), and while there are one or two talented actors(Michael Clarke Duncan... why?) in this, there is no impressive performances. Steven Bland... sorry, Brand... makes a decent enough villain. The kids are nearly the worst of the bunch, second only to the never chuckle-worthy, always irritating comic relief(thankfully, he gets bashed in the head a few times). While I don't understand why they went for so much Jackie Chan(meaning, with props) martial arts, I gotta say, the fighting is pretty cool and can be exciting. Director Chuck Russell(of The Mask and Eraser) gets about all that he can out of the extremely clichéd script, and makes a film that can be fun, if you're in the mood for it. Also, it deserves mention that he, probably realizing that it wasn't going to turn out that excellent, peppered it with hot chicks, many of them showing off cleavage. My god, Kelly Hu spends what appears to the majority of her screen-time with her legs entirely uncovered(well, as close as she could possibly get without this losing its PG-13 rating)! There is sensuality and mild violence, as well as a bit of potentially disturbing content in this. I recommend this to any fan of this sub-genre. 6/10
