Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First, we would like to thank 20th Century Fox PH for inviting us to the advance screening of the film last Tuesday at SM Megamall. Larry Daley is back one last time to mingle with the hidden secrets inside the museum which comes alive during nightfall. 

Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) faces a major crisis when the magical Egyptian tablet threatens to lose its magic that brings everyone to life. Together with his gang, Larry needs to travel all the way to the British Museum to find the answers on how to recapture the magic and save his museum friends from turning into wax figures forever.

The film managed to bring fresh new characters in the screen while the returnees still do the best they can in providing energy into the last entry of this franchise. It is also one of the final performance of both Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney, who will surely be missed. As for the story, it still pretty much the same and a bit tired in giving fresh new ideas. However, enjoying it isn't hard as the film had its terrific moments that will surely make you laugh like what the first two films have offered. 

The whole cast made their presence felt with Ben Stiller providing some good laughs, especially in portraying Laaa. Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan delivered a one-two punch bromance comedy while Rebel Wilson is a nice addition to its already talented roster. We all bid farewell to Robin Williams with a touchy line when Teddy Roosevelt finally turned into wax at the end of the night saying good-bye not only to Larry Daley but to everyone that would watch this film. 

Overall, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is an entertaining closure to the successful series that manage to captivate the kids with magic of ancient artifacts and characters that comes alive during night time. If you loved the first two films, there is no reason for you to miss this one. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 7.5 out of 10 stars

One element to this film series that has always worked for me is the special effects.  Sure, these films are not big budget superhero spectaculars or summer popcorn action films about aliens invading or something like that but bad special effects definitely would have hurt the overall magic of the film.
