Maria Bello is a much better Eve.

I'm so glad Maria will be back as Eve in The Mummy 4.

When Rachel turned down the part, in The Mummy 3, because she did not want to play the "older" Eve, then Maria came right in and did a great job.

In My opinion she would have been fantastic in the first two movies.

Bring Back Rachael Weisz

Maria Bello's "British" accent was so put on you could cut it with a knife. Racheal Weisz was so much better. Please, movie people, bring back Rachael.

Never will she be as good as Rachel. She is good actress but not this movi... she won't ever be Eavy not in any of the fans heart!!. That's just the way it is!!

Oh shut up rachel weisz can put on a way better british accent than maria! Plus she's the original, starred in the first two movies, maria was just plan B, and she had no chemistry whatsoever with Brendan. Looked so pretentious with her fake stuck up british accent so...

Rachel- 10 Maria- (-10)

Umm Rachel declined the part purely on scheduling conflicts.....Maria Bello while a great actress, does not fit the part on any level........

Re: Maria Bello is a much better Eve.

Its always hard for one actor to replace another because their performance is forever compared to that of the actor who originally played the role. The first time I saw the "Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" I too judged Bello negatively solely because she was not Rachel Weisz. I realized that I was being unfair and watched the movie again with an open mind and found that I enjoyed Bello's performance. Yes, Weisz's British accent was better, but it should be because she's actually British in real life!!! The accent of a native will always be better than someone trying to imitate it. That being said, Bello's accent was fine given that she is not British. I agree with the original poster and think Bello would have been fine in the first two movies also.

i disagree

Im sorry to say that i COMPLETELY disagree with you. Rachel weisz was awesome and unreplacable. without her the 3rd movie was a FLOP AND A FAIL. yes maria bello is a good actress but she is NOT fit to replace rachel in the role of evi o'connel. especially because rachel did AWESOMELY in the first two movies. can you really say she didn't?

Maria Bello sucks

Maria Bello sucks as Evie. I mean, the older Evie is much better cause she's more fun, whereas, the new Evie is more serious and has better fighting skills, whereas, the older Evie was funnier when she had to fight!!!!!! Plus I think the third movie was a bit rubbish cause of the quick Lin/Alex romance, I mean, it was so mushy and so quick.

I loved Jonathon and Rick though, they're as great as always.

I totally disagree

They had no chemistry her "british" accent was terrible and she looked like a grandma compared to Brendan the movie wouldn't have been so terrible if they would have killed Evy off or something instead of have some amateur.
