NOT TOO BAD...COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER

Just bring it. This movie was fantastic. It had everything about "The Rock" that I love. The eyebrow the campy humor, his kick-ass in your face dont mess with me or I'll shine my boot turn it sideways and shove it straight up your candy-ass mentality. I thought the fight scene he had with Michael Clarke Duncan rates up there among the best. Ok so "The Rock" isnt winning the Best Actor Oscar for this one, but give me a break it was his first starring role. Even Tom Hanks & Nicolas Cage weren't brillant in their first movies either. And speaking of Tom Hanks, he has the unfortunate distinction of being in "the burbs". I loved this movie and hope to see more in the future. I would also like to see "The Rock" take on some other roles. "The Rock" the action adventure superstar of the 21st century. Oh on a side note the breathtakingly gorgeous Kelly Hu was the sorceress in this movie and shows an ample amount of flesh always a bonus if you ask me. Well folks thats the end of this review "IF YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK, THE SCORPION KING & CRAZYC24 ARE COOKING!!", A perfect 10 out of 10

So he's...the bad guy?

Okay, I'm confused. The Mummy Returns portrays the Scorpion King as some evil tyrant who wants to take over the world by smiting any and all civilizations in his way. But that's exactly the opposite of the same character in his very own movie. In fact he struggles to overthrow an evil ruler for those very reasons.

So when, and why, did he become bad? I'm afraid I'm not following this. The movie, however, is entertaining, if rather short and silly. Chuck Russell tries to cram in loads of fighting and hokum as he can. It works and The Rock is very cool as said King (or Mathayus) and former Jason victim Kelly Hu is gorgeous as the scantily-clad Cassandra. Grant Heslov and Michael Clarke Duncan fill out their usual roles as ethnic comic-relief and big, muscley guy.

The film has slightly less integrity to it than the Mummy movies. This is evident with the fun and lively, but completely inappropriate, score by John Debney. I'm not expecting anything like his Passion of the Christ score but blaring death metal guitars seem kinda out of place in a movie set 3000 years BC.

But this movie is a cheeseburger, not a 17-course dinner. So why bother complaining. After all it's a prequel of a sequel of a movie that was a re-make of a movie that was made in the 30's. But it's well made and loads of fun so just go along with it and you'll enjoy.

Filmed in Panavision the DVD is in perfect 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with very loud and thrilling Dolby/DTS 5.1 sound. The extras are fluff, but that's to be expected.
