John C. Reilly,
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. Written by
More scenes had to be shot due to the movie being around 70 minutes long after being edited See more »
Mathayus throws a rope from the top of the wall down to his camel. We see the rope hit the camel but after he has climbed down, the rope is a few feet shorter. See more »
[the barbarian chieftain is holding up a skull]
We have killed Babylonians!
[the barbarians cheer, he holds up another]
We have killed Mesopotamians!
[the barbarians cheer]
But we have never had the pleasure of killing... an Akkadian.
May the gods have pity on you, for my brother will not.

In the '80s and '90s, Arnold Scharzennegar was the King of Hollywood action films. But nothing is forever. With the The Scorpion King, there seems to be a new pretender to the throne ...The ROCK! More charismatic and certainly a better actor (but then again, who isn't?) Than "AHNULD" was 20 years ago, The Rock, here appearing in his first title role, has had the good fortune that the film, and his participation in it, seems to have been relatively successful in every sense of the word!
"Scorpion" from beginning to end, is a roller coaster of action, adventure, intrigue, romance, magic and beautiful women. A Hollywood capsule of pure adrenaline. If there is anyone in the family who does not like movies of this genre, hard not to be entertained by this minor gem. But Be forewarned! Scorpian may not be the most suitable of films for kids under 9 or 10..... 7.5*STARS* ....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!
