Trama del film:

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 Anonymous

    Mathayus is a legendary warrior but his people face a deadly foe in the
    form of Memnon and his evil army that is sweeping through the lands.
    Despatched to assassinate Memnon, Mathayus is forced to save a child
    and misses his opportunity. Fleeing the city, he kidnaps Memnon's
    sorcerer Cassandra (who he is also meant to kill) and heads into the
    desert. Deep in the Valley of the Dead, he intents to use Cassandra to
    draw Memnon out of the safety of his loyal city and into the desert
    where he will be more vulnerable and easier to kill.

    Despite not being impressed at all by Mummy Returns, I thought I would
    veg out in front of this prequel/sequel/spin off thing which was just
    as well since vegging out mindlessly in front of it is pretty much all
    it is good for. The plot is essentially a collection of action scenes
    held together by some overly-serious plot with a bit of flesh and
    titillation thrown in just in case the teens get restless. It is very
    derivative and very obvious and, if you are actually paying much
    attention to it then you'll find it pretty tiresome at times. Of course
    in my brainless state I found it to be brightly colourful and noisy
    which was enough to keep my eyes busy and let my head rest. It would
    have been much more fun if the material had had its tongue in its cheek
    and allowed the performances to match this, but by taking itself a bit
    too seriously at times it only ends up looking silly.

    The Rock is a solid star for this sort of thing but he isn't very
    versatile – he needs the material to match him rather than the other
    way round. By having a big character in an overly serious tale, he
    looks ill at ease and doesn't suit it that well. Brand is a
    by-the-numbers villain who fills the role but not much else. Hu is
    undoubtedly attractive and at first I felt that she was being exploited
    by having her in tiny clothes and as much flesh as possible; however
    then I watched her performance and realised she was just playing to her
    strengths. Duncan takes himself too seriously and his scenes lack fun –
    surprisingly even in the action scenes. Support from Hill, Heslov and
    others don't do much other than fill out the cast.

    Overall then a fairly bland, uninspiring action movie that lacks
    excitement, tension, characters, story and indeed fun (which is where
    the biggest problem lies). It is probably enough of a film to satisfy
    teenage genre fans but I must confess that there was so little that was
    special that I could barely care about it when it was on and found it
    unmemorable by the time it was finished.
