There's no single thing about this movie that ruins it, it's everything put together. One never gets the feeling that they're anywhere but on a Hollywood set - you're not transported back in time to an exotic, lawless time. The characters have no depth at all - instead of a feared assasin, The Rock comes off as a really nice guy, good with children, wouldn't hurt a fly. Forced to do battle, but he certainly wouldn't otherwise. And the whole thing is just so silly and cheesy. There's a comic relief character, but there's absolutely no need for him as there's nothing to "relieve" us from - the whole movie is little more than comic relief. It's just so unrealistic - it's obviously made for "the whole family", but that just points out it's major flaw - making a movie set in a time where people hacked each other up with swords to settle disputes, but do it in a way that the kiddies will be able to watch and think it's fun. It comes off as extremely watered down. As if it's a pilot for a Saturday morning cartoon or something.
Needless to say, you don't care about any of these generic Hollywood do-gooders, and there's never any doubt that they'll all come out okay in the end. Even the action sequences leave you with the feeling that that you're watching the World Wrestling Federation, where one guy might lose the fight, but he'll be back in the next episode good as new. It's not like anyone's getting gruesomely dismembered like in a real barbarian movie.
Basically, if you want to see an adventure movie, but it has to be something the kids can watch as well, you might get stuck with this. If you're looking for a real, involving adventure, get something else.

Format: DVD
this film is a prequel to both of "The Mummy"films and stars "The
Rock"(Dwayne Johnson)in the title role.i don't think this film measures
up to either of the two "Mummy" films,but it's still pretty good.the
fight scenes are quite good,there is some humour,tons of action and
good acting.The Rock actually impressed me with his acting ability.he
showed a lot of potential in this film and didn't stink up the
theatre,as i thought he would.this movie doesn't have a lot to do with
the previous entries.the story is quite a bit different.there is a lot
more mysticism and romance and none of the main characters from the
first two have returned for this movie.this is really The Rock's
movie,and he has to carry it.he does a pretty good job for his first
big starring feature.though not as good as the two "Mummy" films,it
still rates high in my book.for me,"The Scorpion King"is a solid 4/5

Waste of time?! Not! That was the opinion of one reviewer and I disagree. This is a fun ancient-times action - sword movie. Born of the MUMMY duology, the Rock delivers a strong performance in his fight against a powerful, well crafted opponent. This movie is to much fun to be a waste of time. As my 8 year old son always, there are two things that make a movie great: Swords. Sword Fighting. there you go! This movie is also reasonably family friendly, as we don't recall any Spurting blood, nudity or simulated sex.

Here's a real brain teaser for you: The Scorpion King is the prequel to the sequel to the remake of The Mummy. Confused yet? Let's hope not but if so then let's break it down for you. The Scorpion King is the new star vehicle for former WWE star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The Rock played a small role in The Mummy Returns, which was a sequel to The Mummy. The Mummy was a remake of the original mummy movie series from the 1950's. Got it? With that cleared up, a new question of why they would make a spin-off to The Rock's character emerges. The Rock has become a very popular "actor" in recent years, coming a far way from his early years in the wrestling ring, and Universal Pictures believe a good mint could be made off that popularity. If Dwayne Johnson plays his cards correctly, he could be the next Bruce Willis, Sly Stallone, or even Arnold Schwarzenegger of action films.
The story centers on a leader of a band of assassins, who is hired to kill an important royal figure but gets more in this job then anybody bargained for. Mathayus, the last of a fleeting group of assassins, is hired by the leaders of rebel tribes to kill a sorcerer they believe their enemy is using to help him conquer the lands of Egypt. He accepts the job and arrives in the city of Gomorrah but when he realizes that the sorcerer is a beautiful woman, plans change quickly. He chooses to kidnap her instead of an assassination thus forcing the evil tyrant to bring everything he's got into a final confrontation between the remaining rebel tribes and ruling forces. Stephen Sommer was the director of the previous Mummy films but choose not to direct this spin-off feature and the pacing of this film showcases that.

I'm a pretty big fan of the Mummy Movies, so when I heard this was comming out I was soo excited!
The whole storyboard in this movie is really good, and the acting is pretty good, but not great.
Still a great prologue to the Mummy!
