Trivia

In the film The Scorpion King (2002), the main antagonist Memnon says "The assassin and the sorceress. How romantic!", which was written as a nod to this film. In "The Scorpion King", the main protagonist Mathayus (Dwayne Johnson) is a desert warrior and assassin that is hired to kill the sorceress Cassandra (Kelly Hu), whom serves Memnon (Steven Brand), the evil King that killed his brother. In this film, Kain (David Carradine), a warrior and mercenary living on the desert planet Ura, is caught up in a feud between two rival warlords Zeg (Luke Askew) and Bal Caz (Guillermo Marín), and falls in love with the captive sorceress Naja (Maria Socas).

Quite silly, yet enjoyable
21 July 2005 | by Jade WinterSee all my reviews

This movie was not great by any means. The plot was acceptable, and sometimes comical. The characters were fairly one-dimensional and relatively easy to predict. The movie was more for laughs than anything else, as there are quite a number of random things. If you ever watch the movie, be on the lookout for: a talking lizard, pointless nudity, and David Carradine pulling down his eye socket (which was completely bizarre). This movie was not the best 'worst' movie ever, but it was fairly decent for mindless entertainment. The swordplay was tolerable too, but the sets were awful. I enjoyed it though, as David Carradine is just so cool in his own right.
