Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Movie Review:

night at the museumBe prepared to be laughing non-stop with the third and final instalment of the museum trilogy. There are more comedians joining in the fun this time, as the usual characters go from New York to London to visit the British Museum to find the secret of restoring the corroding magic tablet so that the magic will never end.

If you love the slapstick and gags from the first two films, this will be equally hilarious.

night-at-the-museum-secret-of-the-tomb-DF-00579R_rgbSome new characters you should keep a look out for:
– Laa, the Larry Daley-lookalike Neanderthal (Ben Stiller)- you can’t help but fall in love with this action-copying machine.
– Tilly, the security guard for the British museum (Rebel Wilson)- she might be just a supporting role, but her romance with Laa is simply memorable. I really don’t mind if she’s replacing Larry Daley to be the next museum night guard!
– Sir Lancelot (Dan Stevens)- it’s always fun to listen to a pompous know-it-all knight thinking that he is still in the quest to find Guinevere.
– Hugh Jackman/ King Arthur- This is one of the biggest surprise of the film, to see Hugh Jackman acting as himself (a cameo), and the staged character King Arthur in the Camelot production. Watching him do the Wolverine roar without the special effects was almost priceless.

night-at-the-museum-secret-of-the-tomb-NATM3-185R_rgbBut of course, some audience might find the jokes and tricks in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb a tad stale and overused. And if you realised, we have to give credit to the film for gathering all the best comedians together in this film, getting them to interact with one another and including social media in the film. LOL.

Go watch it for 2 hours of brainless laughter, it will be worth your money. Have fun!

Do You Know?

jedidiah-and-octaviusOwen Wilson and Steve Coogan were going to star as the same two characters Jedediah and Octavius once again in their own spinoff from Night At The Museum somewhere in 2015 before the passing of Robin Williams.

Jake Cherry_Skyler GisondoLarry Daley’s son Nick Daley was played by Jake Cherry in the previous films. Here he is played by Skyler Gisondo.

Mickey Rooney_Robin WilliamsThe film is dedicated to the late actors Mickey Rooney (April 6, 2014 at the age of 93.) and Robin Williams (August 11, 2014 at the age of 63).

Pompeii_Night_at_the_Museum_SecreThere were quite a number of exhibits featured in the movie that were not from the museum.
– There was no lava at Pompeii – Vesuvius erupted and buried the ancient Roman town in the deadly explosion of ash and pumice.
– The museum doesn’t hold a triceratops skeleton, nor dinosaur skeletons or caveman (Laaa)
– The two beautifully glazed porcelain ornaments, known as the Kakiemon elephants from 17th Century Japan are only 14 inches tall in reality.
– Although the museum has an incredible 120 human mummies, it does not hold the Egyptian pharaoh Ahkmenrah’s tomb as scenes suggest.
– The museum does not hold a ‘nine-headed demon snake cast in bronze’, nor a medieval gallery containing Sir Lancelot

  2. Skinny B says:

    When is this? I wish I could watch it!

  3. FX777 Classified Articles says:

    I’m a big fan of Robin Williams even since my college days. He can act with ease and very versatile. Here in the museum, he can give Ben Stiller of his acting process. Fernando Lachica

    Great review! I haven’t watched this movie but now I’m watch it today.

  5. eliz frank says:

    I’ve never seen the trilogy but will make sure to catch this one, mainly because of Robin Williams. I do give them credit for bringing an impressive cast of comedians together.

  6. Ace Paragoyo says:

    Haven’t watch the new series of the Night of Museum movie, I enjoyed the last movie before this one, but based from your review I think it was so enjoyable and funny.

  7. sikat101 says:

    Awww, Robin Williams is still alive. Is this his last movie? Those info from dailymail: somebody really took time to compare the difference from the real museum! -katrina centeno

  8. 3xhcch says:

    I know you have read my review of this film. It is charming but not as fresh anymore. I enjoyed the Hugh Jackman cameo very much as well. I was very surprised that he was there, no one spoiled me about it. Haha!

  9. phyliciamarie says:

    I love the NATM series because of the endless laughter scene after scene. A plus factor for watching this would definitely be Robin Williams. I’m sooo happy Fat Amy is in it too!

  10. sinyee0504 says:

    I watched the sequel. Still, it is entertaining! Love this movie much..

  11. leybainpublic says:

    Robin Williams (RIP) is a fine comedian indeed. This is surely one heck of a movie.Me and my family will watch this film.

  12. Kelly Chin says:

    I watched it too. Not bad, its quite entertaining and hilarious. I like Ben Stiller.

  13. Elana Khong says:

    Haha… funny movie. Great review, looking forward to watch this.

  14. Kylie says:

    I watched night of museum movies and definately not going to miss the latest one.. Great review…

  15. Mia Foo says:

    IMO, this is the worst of the NATM series. The first one was epic. And then it sort of went downhill. But I guess it’s still a must watch for all Robbin Williams fans.

  16. nonstopdestination says:

    I enjoyed the latest Night at the Museum. I thought it was quite entertaining, however, like you pointed out, there are a few things in the movie, you don’t find in the British Museum.

  17. Franc Ramon says:

    I’ve watched the first previous night of the museum movies. This one looks really good plus I think this should be Robin Williams last movie.

  18. Tom says:

    I liked all the Night In The Museum movies so far (I haven’t seen this one yet though). Loved your review. And of course, it will be nice to see Robin Williams in one of his last movies.

  19. Lauren says:

    Good movie review! Since you didn’t rate it that highly either, I’m not sure if I’ll go out and see it! Maybe on a rainy day 🙂

Tell me what you think!
