Austin Chronicle by

Surprisingly well-crafted for something as aggressively dumb as this, the real surprise is the cast.


TheWrap by Alonso Duralde

It's hard to get invested in the father-son dynamic here, even it when it represents a diversion from the limp comedy bits and the flatlined suspense.


Slant Magazine by Drew Hunt

This third and supposedly final edition in the franchise is nothing more than an uncomfortably transparent contractual obligation.


The A.V. Club by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

Secret Of The Tomb plays it as a source of corny jokes, pop-culture references, and father-son bonding moments. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of film that shouldn’t be expected to engage with its assorted bizarre subtexts — but what a movie it could be if it did.


New York Daily News by Joe Neumaier

There are big special effects, of course, but refreshingly, this third (and final?) movie in the franchise is like a pleasant stroll through familiar halls.


The Hollywood Reporter by Michael Rechtshaffen

Despite relocating across the pond to the esteemed British Museum, the creaky Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb fails to capitalize on the comic potential provided by that change of venue.


McClatchy-Tribune News Service by Roger Moore

Minor moments of slapstick may tickle the kids, but anybody older, especially those who remember what Williams was like in his prime and how funny Stiller was just two “Museum” movies ago, will wish this tomb had stayed sealed.


New York Post by Sara Stewart

For piquing kids’ interest in history and nature, you could do worse than this goofy Ben Stiller franchise. But its third installment is more meh than manic, too reliant on wide shots of the ragtag Museum of Natural History cohorts striding down corridors. You get the feeling returning director Shawn Levy is ready to hang it up.


Variety by Scott Foundas

A most enjoyable capper to director Shawn Levy and producer Chris Columbus’ cheerfully silly and sneakily smart family-entertainment juggernaut.
