The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power

The Scorpion King saga continues the tradition of those quasi- fantastic semi-epic pseudo-medievals (prefixes attack!) which were quite popular during the '80s. And even though The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power isn't my favorite one of the saga (I liked The Scorpion King and The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption more), I found it entertaining due its pleasant humorous tone, decent performances and the fact that director Mike Elliott made the good decision of not taking the movie very seriously. The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power imitates the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (not to mention half a dozen of similar works, from The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. to the Indiana Jones saga), and the result is positive... as long as we have the standard of '80s B cinema in our minds. That might sound condescending, but I sincerely enjoyed the light sense of humor of The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power, as well as the performances and the modest action scenes, which are nothing spectacular, but are well choreographed and competently shot. Victor Webster brings a credible and charismatic performance in the leading role (and his presence in here will be doubly amusing to the fans of the TV series Continuum -like me-, in which he plays a serious and efficient policeman). In the supporting cast, we have competent works from various cult "celebrities": Barry Bostwick, Rutger Hauer, Michael Biehn, M. Emmet Walsh, Don Wilson and Lou Ferrigno. And a special mention to Ellen Hollman as the audacious Valina, who would deserve her own spin-off thanks to her perfect combination of personality and physical development. In conclusion, I can give a moderate recommendation to The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power to those familiarized with indie action who know how to adjust their expectations (and sense of humor) to this cinematographic niche, which is better known for avoiding mistakes than its intrinsic pros. There I go again with the condescension... but I employ it with sincere affection, and I can say without any irony that I will be looking forward to a fifth The Scorpion King movie. But, if they keep imitating Hercules, the least they can do is giving a role to Kevin Sorbo. And not a cameo, but a meaty role in which he can show off. And, to keep dreaming, how busy will Lucy Lawless be? Is there any place for a "Scorpion Queen"?

Stung by the Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power

Terrible acting, cheesy dialogue, shallow characters, uninteresting plot, unrealistic fight scenes, and crappy special effects. No redeeming qualities, whatsoever. It doesn't even deserve to air as a Sci-Fi original movie.

Do you know how Hollywood tends to ignore the Laws of Physics? This movie just took it to the next level. We see our heroes engage in fist-fights, fall from great heights, and fly out of catapults and afterward walk away completely unscathed. It turns out the "dragon" is a medieval-age mechanical construct powered by geothermal steam that could never have functioned in the way the movie portrays. The same goes for the old man's steam-powered mill.

When we first see the lead female character in the dungeon, she was wearing a skimpy outfit. After escaping and deciding to join Mathyus on his possibly-dangerous quest, she changes into another skimpy outfit. That along with the cage match between her and another hot, scantily-clad woman, the scantily-clad acolytes of the female goddess, and the periodic sexual innuendos are blatant, pathetic attempts to keep the movie interesting for young male viewers.

I feel like this movie insults its viewers' intelligence and I regret watching the whole thing, even though it was for free. One couldn't pay me to watch it again.

A great film

Why did this get a 4.2. It is a great movie. It has a lot of action. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. The Scorpion King is better. The Scorpion King 2 rise of a warrior is better. The Scorpion King 3 battle of redemption is also better. But still this is a great movie. I give it 7 out of 10. 4.2 is underrating. This is an awesome movie. I do not know why would not like it. There do have to like. But if you like good fantasy movies you should see this movie. It is one of the best fantasy movie from 2015. It is a very scary movie. See it. It is a great movie. I need more line and I am running out of thing to say.
