Has enough fighting and fan service to keep one awake for an hour and a half
28 October 2018 | by juliankennedy23See all my reviews

The Scorpion King: Book of Souls: 5 out of 10: The Scorpion King's plan to live the simple life is ruined when a mad king (Not played by Tony Todd) with a demon possed sword threatens his idyllic farm life and it is off to find the titular Book of Souls which is the only thing that can stop The Mad Kings Demon Sword.

The Good: Well it is better than Scorpion King 2. Sand and sandal film has some decent fight scenes, keeps the camera in focus, some PG-13 fan service and a funny Golem (Jewish not Middle Earth). If you can ignore the story (I highly recommend this) there is some family-friendly action adventure waiting for you.

The Bad: If you cannot ignore the story you are in for a rough ride. For starters even trying to figure out the geography of everyone is a chore. (I know where the Nubians are historically but I have no idea where the Scorpion King is currently residing or where Not Tony Todd and his army are hailing from or where the Book of Souls is supposed to be and why they are next to the ocean unless that was the only place to film the sand scenes.

In addition, the movie suffers from the Death Star destroyed let's call this a win syndrome. Even if you destroy Not Tony Todd's magic sword he still has a fanatical army and you are still three people and a Gollum.

The Ugly: Why is this a Scorpion King movie? Seriously. The story fits a lot better as a Pg-13 Conan adventure and the lead actor looks nothing like the Scorpion King. Honestly if you called this Price of Persia and the Book of Souls it would make a lot more sense in both casting and story.

In Conclusion: It moves fast enough and has enough fighting and fan service to keep one awake for an hour and a half. Family friendly and fun to tear apart while watching it is at least a somewhat enjoyable romp. That Gollum is hilarious BTW. He really needs a better movie.
