In an ancient time, predating the pyramids, the evil king Memnon is using the psychic powers of his sorceress Cassandra to fortell his great victories. In a last ditch effort to stop Memnon from taking over the world, the leaders of the remaining free tribes hire the assassin Mathayus to kill the sorceress. But Mathayus ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now with the help of the trixter Arpid, tribal leader Balthazar and an unexpected ally, it's up to Mathayus to fufill his destiny and become the great Scorpion King.


Amusing in it's action, horrible in it's acting, a bit of a below par B-movie The Scorpion King stars the Rock, the wrestler (real name Dwayne Johnson doesn't appear around the credits part, pay it no mind), takes on the spin off movie of his character from the Mummy 2.Here, he shows his acting skills are formidable (er, pretty uninspired and lame) for a action movie of this sort.And by this sort I mean where the action is non-stop until the point when you give up and give in to the amusing aspects of the action scenes- like when the Rock gets thrown into a room full of women in one fight scene (I'm not making this up) and then is surrounded by cooing ladies and what does the Rock do, he gives the People's eyebrow.This is also back when that was the past time I take it. Only die hard fans of Johnson, or those looking depserately for a exciting movie, should vide this, those not interested in the first place should steer clear.B-
