Soundtrack for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Compared to the first couple Mummy movies, the Tomb of the Dragon Emperor was pretty crappy. First and foremost, Maria Bello just isn’t the same as Rachel Weisz – to the point that I don’t think they should have made the movie at all without her. The first movies also had a better calibrated sense of humor (e.g., mummies juggling their own heads). But this time, the antics seemed a bit forced.
On the bright side, the music from the Dragon Emperor was a bit better – nothing extraordinary – but pretty good. I enjoyed the Forties period music, particularly the closing song: “My Sweet Eternal Love” by Helen Feng. There were three other songs in the movie as well. You can find them on the ReelSoundtrack Web site.
Here’s the preview for the movie:
