Night at The Museum: Secret of the Tomb sends off Robin Williams in style.
Review by Matt CummingsIt's not often that you see a trilogy end as well as it began - especially when the second was so awful - but in the case of Shawn Levy's Night at The Museum: Secret of the Tomb, it's not hard to like much of this mad-cap comedy. Larry (Ben Stiller) has moved up the museum ladder, ready to show off his cast of 'animatronics' to the world. But as we know, these characters are the museum's displays come to life, courtesy of a magical gilded Tablet of Akmenrah, the ancient Egyptian relic responsible for the museum’s transformation. Unfortunately during a fancy gala, the exhibits begin to malfunction, ending the career of Dr. McPhee (Ricky Gervais) and sending Larry to London to seach for a cure to the disintegrating relic. Along the way, he'll run into his British counterpart Tilly (Rebel Wilson), meet an Egyptian Pharaoh (Sir Ben Kingsley), and battle to save his friends before the Tablet is destroyed. Facebook.
