Hero Love: Rick

Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell in
'The Mummy Trilogy'
Rick O'Connell. I fell in love with this character because despite the fact he can knock the heck out of someone and fight off mummies, he is kinda goofy. Which I think is really amusing and sweet. He's not your typical badass alpha man, and he is sooo cute with Evie.

The conversations between him and pretty much everyone are just funny because of the way he sees things and acts upon them. And I personally think the chemistry between Brendan and Rachael Weisz was perfect, which is why I was so dissapointed when I learnt Rachael wasn't in the third film. I know in the third film Rick and Evie are experiencing chemistry problems in their marriage but something was just off for me. I think it is all due to the fact that I just loved Rachael so much as Evie, because I am a fan of Maria Bello but something just didn't click. But The third mummy film is good. Johnathan is hilarious as always and Jet Li is awesome, so definitely worth the watch.

  1. I love the mummy movies and I have always liked Brendan Fraser ever since I saw him in Bedazzled with Elizabeth Hurley. If you haven't seen it, its very funny. Hav not yet seen the 3rd one yet, was bummed that they replaced Rachel Weiz, but now will have to try it.
