The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Given that Randy Edelman's reputation as a Hollywood composer rests on his work on romantic comedies and family-friendly fare, he's an unlikely choice to score an effects-driven, popcorn adventure like The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, but while his signature playfulness and sentimentality occasionally bubble to the surface, this is nevertheless a solid, often exciting effort that manages to fulfill the mandates of the genre in question.
