Since his triumphant rise to power in the original blockbuster The Scorpion King, Mathayus’ kingdom has fallen and he’s lost his queen to plague. Now an assassin for hire, he must defend a kingdom from an evil tyrant and his ghost warriors for the chance to regain the power and glory he once knew. Starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Billy Zane (Titanic), and featuring 6-time WWE champion Dave Bautista and UFC star Kimbo Slice, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption takes The Mummy phenomenon to an all-new level of epic action and non-stop adventure!

I’ll note too that Victor Webster, who is the lead actor playing The Scorpion King in this third movie (direct to video, as to be expected) reminds me greatly of of Jason Mantzoukas, both his voice and some of his mannerisms are similar.
This wasn’t a great film, but it wasn’t a terrible one either, just as long as you completely throw out the mythos that was set in the previous Mummy/Scorpion films, as the Scorpion King is back to being a puckish rogue assassin and not an evil king that would eventually become a man/scorpion hybrid demon monster.
