The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a 2008 American adventure film that follows The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. It was released on August 1, 2008 in the US.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is directed by Rob Cohen and written by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Bob Ducsay, Sean Daniel, Stephen Sommers and James Jacks produce the film.
The emperor on which this fictitious account was based was Qin Shi Huang and not the first Emperor of the Han Dynasty, Emperor Gaozu of Han.
The movie story revolves around the king who built that Great Wall of China. After great achievements and successes, the only enemy that he left was his own death. He then found out that there’s a key to eternal life, thru a beautiful witch. He ordered his most trusted General to look for that witch. After the witch was found, he was granted with eternal life. But the king betrayed the witch, that’s why the witch cursed the king and his men, and all of them turned into stones. That witch escaped and casted the eternal life magic to herself.
This movie has very poor editing, but it’s still worth a watch, even if it’s not that good compared to the Dark Knight.
