My friend Silvia reminded me this morning of this movie:
This is the last film I remember that put me to sleep halfway through.
And I know it sounds crazy.
C’mon, it’s a high-octane action-adventure flick, it features Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh, it uses Chinese history and folklore, there is a snowbound monastery with yetis in it…
Yes, it’s more or less when the yetis arrived that I was completely knocked out. I only hope I did not snore. My brother was with me, but he would not tell me – probably because he fell asleep, too.
What did me in, I think, was the over-abundance of … everything.
There’s too much stuff going on, too many characters, too many subplots.
And they talk too much.
I liked the first Mummy franchise movie a lot.
The second was all right and it featured at least a scene with cannibal zombie pygmies, so it’s OK.
The third, for me, is a complete blank.
Heck, I don’t even remember the bit with the three-headed dragon you see in the trailer!
I guess I’ll have to re-watch it one of these nights.
