Product Description

Product Description

The Scorpion King Widescreen Co

Amazon.ca

There's nothing original in The Scorpion King, but this derivative action franchise gets off to a rousing start by cleverly stealing from a lot of better movies. Capitalizing on his brief cameo in The Mummy Returns, Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a. World Wrestling Federation star the Rock) stars as Mathayus, an Akkadian assassin in the age preceding Egyptian pharaohs, who vows to avenge his brother's murder by an undefeated warlord (Steven Brand) prophesied to become the desert-ruling Scorpion King. Their battle for supremacy comprises most of the film's brisk 95-minute running time, punctuated by comic relief from Mathayus's obligatory sidekick (Grant Heslov), romance with a beautiful sorceress (Kelly Hu), and alliance with a massive Nubian (Michael Clarke Duncan) on the eve of their climactic showdown. There's no rhyme or reason to the film's depiction of ancient civilization (the costuming is particularly ludicrous), but the Rock demonstrates adequate action-star potential, and director Chuck Russell (The Mask) wraps it all in a slick, professional package. --Jeff Shannon

I didn't think this movie was going to be as good as it was. I have never liked the over-the-top theactrics of pro-wrestling, and expected to see some cheesey acting by "The Rock". However, I couldn't have been more wrong; "The Rock" is a surprizingly good actor! This movie had some really great action sequeances and I thought the story played out well. I'm not saying this is a "thinking" movie, but it is great entertainment in my opinion. The only problem I had with this movie is that is did not lead into "The Mummy Returns" as I expected.

The Rock may be the next Arnold Schwartznegger! To my surprise, the Rock is charismatic, well-spoken and will probably go far as an action movie hero. My children and I, who are fans of The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, loved this movie also. The storyline wasn't too bad, the special effects were good, not too much blood and gore, the dialogue was decent, the humor was pretty good and The Rock was convincing.
