See how the legend of The Scorpion King began! When a young Mathayus witnesses his father’s death at the hands of the king (UFC Champion Randy Couture), his quest for vengeance transforms him into the most feared warrior of the ancient world. From the director of Resident Evil: Extinction and Highlander comes a heroic adventure filled with heart-stopping action and thrilling visual effects!
Ah, the Scorpion King, here’s where it all began, he’s a young warrior with stick arms and a heart of gold in a nation of assassin warriors, none of them with the ability to act or appropriately emote. There’s some hints of interesting stuff going on here but the poor script and special effects far outweigh the good.
Case in point, there’s a guy that turns into a monster at the end of the film (naturally), but golly, it’s an invisible monster, so they didn’t even have to spend much on that CG budget, just some air cannons and a stage hand to throw dust into the wind. There was also a scene with some oil and a fire that I think was supposed to be suspenseful, but it was more hilariously confusing than anything else.
