Another tale in the Scorpion King. Despite this one being set after the original, where the 2nd was a prequel, Mathayus is not played by Dawyne Johnson, though you will notice another famous wrestler in there. Mathayus has lost his kingdom, lost his family, but once again finds another villain rising up to stand over everyone else, or kill those who won't hold him up.

This one has a certain feel to it that was more in keeping with the original but sadly like the second It's not one I could watch time and again.

Exotic looking Victor Webster has assumed the title role taking over in a mostly deadpan fashion. The Akkadian king has fallen from grace and is now on a quest from King Horus (Ron Perlman in a minor role) to go after his rival brother Talus (Billy Zane). Talus is on the march against Horus' ally in the eastern kingdom (India) in order to obtain the "Book of the Dead."

Webster is forced to work with the oafish Olaf (Bostin Christopher) from northern Germania. He has a wife Olga and 17 daughters. There are many stereotypes and if I started in on how this film is an anachronistic and historical nightmare, I would be writing a tome after the first 10 minutes. The movie takes on the aspect of a "B" comedy by adapting modern sayings to its age. For instance, a prisoner gets his ear ripped off by Talus who then holds the ear to his mouth and says, "Might you hear me now?"

The movie is dotted with this type of humor.

Dave Bautista plays Argomael the head of the Indian group. They also speak English but with an accent unlike the Akkadians, Egyptians (?), and the frequently belching Olaf. There is a fourth party in this...a person named "Cobra." Krystal Vee, a trained Thai kick boxer, plays the princess who must be rescued. Lex de Groot, who plays a messenger, is also listed as Billy Zane's stunt double, although I couldn't tell when he needed one.

There is a quest within a quest, an oriental harem, a blond Japanese warrior, and ninja style warriors complete with cg ninja action. Billy Zane was excellent as the bad guy. The movie works when it is a "B" comedy. The serious scenes highlight the bad script and acting. Some of the fight scenes had me scratching my head such as when fighters "ride" elephant tusks to propel them 2-3 feet in the air across the span of 5 feet. They had to slow-mo the scene to make it look effective. It might have been better deleted. The movie was intended for a younger audience. If you keep your expectations low, view the movie within its context, and simply want an enjoyable film without it being an epic or requiring a lot of thinking, then this would be a worthwhile teen rental.

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Use of "P" word. Urination. Krystal Vee showing off leg and midriff. Good movie for Billy Zane fans.

After having been entertained by the scorpion king 1 and 2, I made an impulse buy at an airport shop. This film is nothing like the other two scorpion king films. A flimsy story line that is bolted together with rusting bolts, it has no acting talent or even "gratutous totty factor to distinguish it. The film should win an Oscar for the worst dialogue ever.
Adefinite waste of money it only earns two stars because like a traffic accident it was too horrible not to watch. Keep your money in your pocket.

Scorpion King 1 was good/ no 2 was rubbish/ 3 (this one) goes some way to redeeming the series. Mathias is not as good as when played by The Rock but the action is pretty good- although with no real surprises along the way.all in all a pretty mediocre offering

Who wouldn't like this film, action packed full on adventure story line which is just what you would expect from this series of films. I would recommend this film to those of us who like a good action film.

I like a good sword fight now and again, and the Scorpion King delivers weather its 1,2 or 3, it's along the lines of the Mummy with more fighting.
