Synopsis / Plot
In an ancient time, predating the pyramids, the evil king Memnon is using the psychic powers of his sorceress Cassandra to fortell his great victories. In a last ditch effort to stop Memnon from taking over the world, the leaders of the remaining free tribes hire the assassin Mathayus to kill the sorceress. But Mathayus ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now with the help of the trickster Arpid, tribal leader Balthazar and an unexpected ally, it's up to Mathayus to fufill his destiny and become the great Scorpion King.
Critics' reviews
  • "Like every other action movie, it's designed for a 14-year-old boy's mentality, but it's enjoyable enough to turn most people into 14-year-old boys."
  • "The best way (maybe the only way) to enjoy the movie, directed by Chuck Russell, is to turn off your mind, surrender all expectations of logic and wallow in an accumulating mess that finds you waist deep in trash by the end of the movie."
