There’s plenty of action in this film for those who enjoy their movies moving along at the speed of light. And yet it slows down long enough here and there to concentrate on the troubles brewing between explorer Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser) and his son Alex, played by Luke Ford. Alex is a chip off the old block, which means he is headstrong and stubborn just like his father. Wife and mother Evelyn (Maria Bello) helps keep them communicating, if only a little at times. The story opens in England in 1946.
