The Scorpion King (2002)

Written By Awir Aditya on Thursday, August 13, 2009 | 12:19 AM

Genre: Action/Adventure/Thriller/Fantasy

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Steven Brand, Kelly Hu

The Scorpion King makes a short appearance in The Mummy Returns. The movie goes back into a flashback and narrates how Mathayus (Johnson) became the Scorpion King. Mathayus and his brothers are the last of the Akkadian mercenaries. Memnon (Brand) is conquering kingdom after kingdom with the help of his sorceress Cassandra (Hu). Memnon's remaining adversaries hire Mathayus and his brothers to kill Memnon for good. At his first attempt, Mathayus loses his brothers and is about to lose his life, when his sorceress prevents Memnon from killing him, saying it was bad omen for him. Mathayus learns that Cassandra is forced to do what she has to, and she too would prefer to see Memnon dead. Being a part of The Mummy series of movies, the story has no link whatsoever to them. The movie doesn't have anything new to offer except for the Egyptian background. Dwayne Johnson though, fits the bill of a warrior and does a fine job.

Rating: 5.4/10
