Dumb and forgettable

I admit that I don't hate this as much as most people, but I still think this movie is bad. The main fault is how utterly clichéd it is. It features a guy who goes on an epic quest to kill the king to avenge his father. Wow, never heard of a guy killing someone to avenge his father before. The special effects are really bad. In the latter part of the movie, we even get a giant scorpion that's horribly rendered that's mostly invisible or in the shadows all the time. I couldn't help but think that this was to hide how awful the effects are. Most of this movie is predictable.

I can't remember anyone's name because it was so clichéd. As someone who personally thought "The Mummy" to just be okay and "The Scorpion King" to be mediocre at best, I didn't have high expectations for this. This was apparently the first prequel to a prequel that was also a spin off that was also a prequel. Um, I guess it has some importance that way. TSK at least had a charismatic actor like The Rock starring and this practically has nothing to do with that or any of the mummy movies. You could just make it about any other character and no one would notice the difference. *1/2

this is a great film

This is a very good movie. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It also has great special effects. The Scorpion King is better. But still I give this movie 7 out of 10. It is a great fantasy movie. It very scary at times. It is a prequel. Do not know why it got a 3.8. That is just underrating it. It is not a 3.8. It is a great movie. It is one of the best fantasy horror movies from 2008. It is a prequel to The Scorpion King. It is also ha prequel to The Mummy. All The Scorpion king movie are prequels to The Mummy. If you like good horror movies you need to see this movie. I need more line and I am running out of things to say.

No Rock, no joy

Mathayus' father is the leader of the elite Black Scorpions but he refuses to let Mathayus enlist. Layla as a girl is also rejected. Sargon (Randy Couture) uses black magic to kill Mathayus' father and later becomes the king of Akkad. He allows Mathayus to join the Scorpions. When he orders Mathayus to kill a friend who slandered him, Mathayus revolts. With the help of Layla and others, he sets off for Egypt to steal the Spear of Osiris. The Spear is only the first step as they steal the Sword of Damocles from Astarte.

The original Scorpion King has many problems but it does have the Rock. His obvious charisma saves that movie from being what this movie turns out to be. This has a lot of weak acting from no-name actors, weak CGI, weak writing, and Randy Couture as the villain. Couture is no Rock. He is acting as one expects from an untrained actor. This is inferior in almost every respect.
