Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb – Five Reasons You’ll Love It

Ben Stiller and his faithful living band of museum exhibits return for a third time in this new blockbuster. We caught an early screening and have rounded up five reasons you’ll love it…

 

The move to London gives the franchise new life…

This time around the Tablet of Ahkmenrah, the tablet that gives all the museum’s exhibit the ability to come to life, sees its power begin to die out. In order to solve it, the gang head across the Atlantic to London. This means we get introduced to a whole new cast of characters, new exhibits and new peril. It does the film a power of good.

 

Rebel Wilson brings her own zany charm…

The Pitch Perfect star plays hapless security guard Mindy and brings her typical mix of zany humour and slapstick. In between all the running around, she’s a welcome distraction.

 

Dan Stevens is a total revelation…

We can’t think of any actor who’s made the transition from the small screen to the big with such ease and aplomb. Here, as the larger than life Sir Lancelot, Stevens is in his element, camping it right up and delivering a performance that’s pure bluster. He’s the best thing in the movie, aside from…

 

Dexter The Monkey deserves an Oscar…

Every time that monkey was on screen, the cinema we were in rocked with laughter, you’ll probably have exactly the same reaction…

 

If this is the final chapter in the saga, it’s worthy one…

This film ties everything up neatly. Beloved characters get the appropriate send-off, Ben Stiller’s Larry gets a dignified ending and the museum gets a new night guard. The only heartbreaking moment, however, is the dedications, which are to the late Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney. Giants of the screen who will be sorely missed.

If this is the last we see of these guys, then they get a nice goodbye. Of course, if this one performs well at the box office, it’s unlikely to be the end…
