A spin-off that didn't work at all. The Scorpion King is about a warrior captures the sorcerer in Egyptian times - showing us how the scorpion king became a legend. This is back when Dwayne Johnson wasn't such a good actor and it really shows his early mistakes. The set in this movie I thought was well done and the other cast did a fine job of what there got. They are some really big problems in this movie like the villain is so bland and boring, the characters are forgettable.

Dumb, lame spinoff of the Mummy series. I'm just glad the Rock was able to make better movies after this.

I was a moderate fan of the original "Mummy" film. The second one was OK and the Scorpion king was a pretty cool new addition. So you would think getting his own spin off movie would be awesome wouldn't you? Well, sadly this film is very underwhelming for anyone who was a fan of the character.

Good entertaining action flick with The Rock. It was a good start for his acting career.

"The Scorpion King" by Yojimbo

The Rock plays an assassin who is hired to kill a sorceress whose guidance aids the tyrant his people are attempting to overthrow. Conan The Barbarian meets The Arabian Nights in this spin off to Steven Sommers' Mummy franchise, The Rock showing a very similar screen presence to Arnie in his early days. This is basically purely formulaic popcorn film-making; the plot is entirely predictable and the usual catalogue of characters (brave lone warrior, sexy princess in distress, cowardly sidekick, streetwise kid, old eccentric, grudging ally) are all present and correct. But Dwayne's background as a pro-wrestler holds him in good stead for some energetic fights sequences, there's enough tongue in cheek humour to maintain the interest and it's cheerfully unpretentious. Completely forgettable b...
