As if he didn't dig up enough trouble in the last two Mummy movies, Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) is getting his hands dirty again! This time he's in China with his wife (Maria Bello) and son (Luke Ford), where a terra cotta army has been unearthed. When they accidentally awaken these clay warriors, their tyrannical Emperor (Jet Li) resumes his 2000 year-old quest to conquer the world.
Why Is The Mummy - Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Rated PG-13?
The Mummy - Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is rated PG-13 for adventure action and violence.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Mummy - Tomb of the Dragon Emperor...
This story about a resurrected ancient Chinese warrior is nearly non-stop confrontation and violence, yet it falls short of including explicit and grotesque images. Many scenes portray humans in hand-to-hand combat using a variety of weapons, such as knives, swords and other devices. Guns are also involved with some human shootings and many digitally animated terra cotta soldiers and skeletons being blown apart by bullets. These creatures are depicted in various states of dismemberment (many are missing arms, legs or heads) and some are seen with arrows and swords sticking through their “bodies.” Sexual content includes a chorus line of scantily clad nightclub dancers, two instances of veiled verbal innuendo, and romantic talk between a married couple. Language is limited to a few mild profanities and terms of deity. Social drinking is depicted and one character quickly downs a drink after a stressful experience.
