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
Early in the production the villain role was written for Yun-Fat Chow. But Chow's manager Terence Chang vetoed this saying that Chow never plays villains and that doing so would betray his fans. See more »
When Mathayus escapes from the harem he cuts the gong and rolls it away for cover, he does not have time to return it to his sheath yet when he drops into Cassandra's chamber he immediately draws his sword. See more »

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.

Just bring it. This movie was fantastic. It had everything about "The Rock" that I love. The eyebrow the campy humor, his kick-ass in your face dont mess with me or I'll shine my boot turn it sideways and shove it straight up your candy-ass mentality. I thought the fight scene he had with Michael Clarke Duncan rates up there among the best. Ok so "The Rock" isnt winning the Best Actor Oscar for this one, but give me a break it was his first starring role. Even Tom Hanks & Nicolas Cage weren't brillant in their first movies either. And speaking of Tom Hanks, he has the unfortunate distinction of being in "the burbs". I loved this movie and hope to see more in the future. I would also like to see "The Rock" take on some other roles. "The Rock" the action adventure superstar of the 21st century. Oh on a side note the breathtakingly gorgeous Kelly Hu was the sorceress in this movie and shows an ample amount of flesh always a bonus if you ask me. Well folks thats the end of this review "IF YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK, THE SCORPION KING & CRAZYC24 ARE COOKING!!", A perfect 10 out of 10
