Storyline

Double-crossed by a good friend during a dangerous quest to retrieve the Urn of Kings--a rare artefact that unleashes the ancient power of the sorcerer, Lord Alcaman--Mathayus sets out on a journey to the kingdom of Norvania to deliver a peace treaty. Instead, the Akkadian warrior finds himself wrongfully accused of murder, with the soldiers of an entire kingdom after him. Now, Mathayus must rely on his skills and his only allies--the fellow prisoner, Valina, and her inventor father, Sorrell--to escape from the hostile realm in one piece. Is the Scorpion King capable of stopping the dark warlock's magical force? Written by Nick Riganas

The Scorpion King The Lost Throne: Passable stuff
12 May 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Credit where credit is due, the Scorpion King franchise was nowhere near as bad as it could have been or by all rights should have been.

In this 4th and likely final instalment we see the return of the titular character once again played by Victor Webster who does a decent enough job.

The plot is brainless but acceptable and the action and laughs come thick and fast and once again the film doesn't take itself seriously at all (Which works in its favour).

Again it's like watching Hercules or Xena, and since fantasy movies are so few and far between I'll take what I can get.

The odd thing is how many stars are in The Scorpion King but how little screen time they get. Rutger Hauer, Eve Torres, M. Emmet Walsh and Lou Ferrigno (Who plays a big part of the cover art) are all in one single scene each which seems like a bizzare waste.

Dumb stuff, but passable this rounds The Scorpion King franchise out for me at 22/40 which isn't all that bad. I would however say that this perhaps should be the last film and it shouldn't be milked any longer.

The Good:

Some oddly good comedy

M. Emmet Walsh & Barry Bostwick

Scorpion King wasn't recast again

The Bad:

No Olaf

Most of the famous names are little more than cameos

Weak CGI

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Watching Scorpion King 4 is like watching an extended episode of Hercules, except the leading man isn't a complete moron

Agents of Shield Grant Ward is the Scorpion King? Who knew!

Rocks are secretly soft and will protect you from large falls

Women always have spare clothes that would neatly fit 6"5 men

Making wrestlers do their finishing moves in movies is still tacky
