The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power
21 July 2015 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The Scorpion King saga continues the tradition of those quasi- fantastic semi-epic pseudo-medievals (prefixes attack!) which were quite popular during the '80s. And even though The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power isn't my favorite one of the saga (I liked The Scorpion King and The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption more), I found it entertaining due its pleasant humorous tone, decent performances and the fact that director Mike Elliott made the good decision of not taking the movie very seriously. The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power imitates the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (not to mention half a dozen of similar works, from The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. to the Indiana Jones saga), and the result is positive... as long as we have the standard of '80s B cinema in our minds. That might sound condescending, but I sincerely enjoyed the light sense of humor of The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power, as well as the performances and the modest action scenes, which are nothing spectacular, but are well choreographed and competently shot. Victor Webster brings a credible and charismatic performance in the leading role (and his presence in here will be doubly amusing to the fans of the TV series Continuum -like me-, in which he plays a serious and efficient policeman). In the supporting cast, we have competent works from various cult "celebrities": Barry Bostwick, Rutger Hauer, Michael Biehn, M. Emmet Walsh, Don Wilson and Lou Ferrigno. And a special mention to Ellen Hollman as the audacious Valina, who would deserve her own spin-off thanks to her perfect combination of personality and physical development. In conclusion, I can give a moderate recommendation to The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power to those familiarized with indie action who know how to adjust their expectations (and sense of humor) to this cinematographic niche, which is better known for avoiding mistakes than its intrinsic pros. There I go again with the condescension... but I employ it with sincere affection, and I can say without any irony that I will be looking forward to a fifth The Scorpion King movie. But, if they keep imitating Hercules, the least they can do is giving a role to Kevin Sorbo. And not a cameo, but a meaty role in which he can show off. And, to keep dreaming, how busy will Lucy Lawless be? Is there any place for a "Scorpion Queen"?
