    The fact that The Scorpion King is an Akkadian, and that I am an Acadian, means there's a very personal drinking game to be had in his first (and only theatrical) feature. It's just fun to hear the word. There's entirely too much that happens in this thing (the first 15 minutes alone!) and hardly any time to absorb the exposition, but even in this very early role, the Rock has enough charm to carry a romp. And that's what this is. It's TV level, perhaps, with an Ancient World where every realm is a couple days' walk away from the other, like in Xena or The Legendary Journeys, except it's got a little more star power with Kelly Hu particular beautiful, Michael Clarke Duncan as a badass warrior and Bernard Hill somewhat wasted as the kooky inventor. This may be junk, but it's my kind of junk. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I want my B-movies to go for broke and not take themselves seriously, and there's definitely an attempt here. The set pieces are wonderfully extreme, and of all the films in the Mummy franchise, this is the one that least relies on CGI, which is its Achilles' heel. 1 year 4 months ago

    Watched this a long time after I'd seen "The Mummy" and I have to say it's better than I thought. Visually appealing and entertaining. Nice! 8 years 7 months ago
