Is critical lambasting and moderate attendance by bored audiences who already saw Batman considered "reponding well"? Because if it is, director Rob Cohen warns there will be a fourth Mummy, and that would be terrible. From MTV (Mummy 3 spoiler alert!):

"Rick, because he was treated by the pool of eternal life, Rick is now immortal. I'd love to explore how that plays out for him," Cohen said.
