We gave it a C+

Big movies mean big budgets, especially when it’s a moneymaking franchise like The Mummy. The third installment of the action-thriller series (starring The Rock as a legendary Egyptian warrior) is no exception: Its souped-up official site flaunts such stock elements as cast bios and behind-the-scenes tidbits. But maneuver past all that and lose yourself in the Gomorrah Bazaar to face off in a Scorpion King videogame. And while you’re trying your luck, you might as well enter the Universal Studios sweepstakes. For some, it’s the closest they’ll get to Egypt.
