Yes, there are many similar elements of Egyptian mummy mythology that features legends from the first emperor of China, a forbidden love story, sorceress, ancient world (Great Wall of China), zombies and resurrection of the soldiers from hell (the Terracotta Army of Xi'an, Shaanxi.) Connection to its prequels are the return of the Rick & Evelyn O'Connells and their son who is now 21 years old, engaging in an archaeology dig in China. The Shangri-La and its Yeti character (雪人) are good add-ons to the script. But for some reasons, the film's CGI is subpar to the its prequels.

I didn't know that this third sequel even existed (I loved the first two with Branden)! Loved the monsters that the evil emperor mummy could turn into and also the Yeti though the yeti did look cartoonish and not human enough. They should have put the part in special features about the ancient lover having the one arm because of torture in the regular movie as he being in the movie was not really explained. Very good movie but liked the first two a little better.

The comedy relief is wonderful the yak getting airsick is priceless. Watch it as a campy comedy and you'll love it.

Action, action, action. Basis in reality of remains found. Being grandmother, liked having the next generation involved.

If I could give it Negative 10, I would! DON'T ENJOY! The pitiful thing is, like THE CURSE OF THE FACELESS MAN, somewhere there's a decent horror story roaming around - BUT THIS AIN'T IT!

This movie made me very upset. My main issue was that they replaced one of the main characters with a far inferior actress. The acting seemed forced and the natural chemistry in the first two movies just was not there. I did like the fact that they dived into the Dragon Emperor a bit, but other than that it was a truly awful movie. If I could give it 0 stars I would

I thought Rogue One was like finding some old corn beef hash in the freezer from 40 yrs ago then adding a dash of MSG to it after heating in the microwave oven - a pretty bad movie - until I saw this movie.

The Mummy is like finding some split pea soup with extra ham in the bottom of the fridge six months later then parboiling it.

This is the worst movie I've ever seen. The first ones in this series were funnier as well as flowing easily while this movie crawls from one dead scene to another when it should have crawled back into the grave and pulled some dirt over itself.

Maria Bello a nice fit. Good family movie.

LONG intro followed by explosions, wielding of weapons, and lots of CGI. Teens will love it.

Accusations of pandering to Chinese audiences aside, I personally think it works as a concept. Some of the acting is a little worse, and I'm not a fan of the new Evie actress or their grown son, but Brendan remains great. Personally, I would've rathered another movie with him than Tom Cruise.

Part of the intro is in IMDb. Here is the full narrative. P1 of 2:

Long ago, a mythic battle between good and evil played out in ancient China. The country was torn by civil war, with many kingdoms struggling for land and power. But one king had a ruthless ambition to make himself emperor by the sword.
...
The other rulers hired assassins to kill the King before he could conquer them all.
...
Kingdom by kingdom, his army swept away everything in its path, and anyone who resisted met a terrible fate. The country was his. He was now Emperor of All Under Heaven. He enslaved his conquered enemies and forced them to build his Great Wall. When they were dead or useless, he had them buried beneath it. The Emperor's mystics taught him mastery over the five elements, fire, water, earth, wood and metal. His power seemed without limit.

He was master of millions, but like the lowliest peasant, he could not stop growing old.
...
I have too much to do for one lifetime. He needed to defeat his last enemy, death itself. One day, news came of a powerful witch who was rumored to know the secret to eternal life. He ordered General Ming, his oldest friend and trusted ally, to find her.

The witch was named Zi Yuan, and she was nothing like the General expected.
...
I do not possess the secret of immortality, my Lord... ...but I know where to find it.
...
General... No man is to touch her. She is mine.
...
On the western border stood the Monastery of Turfan. There was housed the greatest library
in the ancient world, and Zi Yuan was sure the secret to eternal life was here. This is a key. It was the long lost oracle bones, a collection of all the mystical secrets of the ancient world. The Emperor's answer was here along with other magic beyond imagining.
