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

This is a film that exceeds expectations if based on the press, but it is a must see for any WWF fan. It is a high action, fighting sequence filled movie that will have anyone on he edge of their seats. The Rock is excellent as Mathayus the all action 'superhero' of the story, with his good looks for the girls and the beautiful looks of Kelly Hu. It is a definite for all people. Overall a brilliant film that i will go and see again and again. Brilliant.
