Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
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
Although the story is introduced and referenced in The Mummy Returns (2001) the storyline presented has nothing to do with this movie. See more »

We have killed Babylonians!
[the barbarians cheer, he holds up another]
We have killed Mesopotamians!

But we have never had the pleasure of killing... an Akkadian.
May the gods have pity on you, for my brother will not.

There are no opening credits, only with the Universal logo and the title for the film at the beginning. See more »
In the UK the distributor, UIP, removed a headbutt in the final fight sequence between Mathayus and Memnon after advice given to them by the BBFC. This was done to obtain a more commercial '12' rating. See more »

This is a great movie. It is a prequel to The Mummy. It is a great movie. It has a great story line. It also has great acting. It is very fast past. It is a great film. See it. It is one of the beast fantasy movies of all time. 5.5 is a good ratting. But this is such a great movie that 5.5 is underrating it. This is a very scary movie. It is one of the scariest movies of all time. It is scarier then The Silence of the lambs could ever be. This a great movie. See it. If it does not scary you then no movie will. I give it 9 out of 10 because it is a great movie. I need more lines and I am running out of thing to say. Great movie. See it.
