Scorpion King 3 Battle for Redemption

The Scorpion King franchise spawned out of the amusing and entertaining Mummy franchise starring Brendan Fraser as the Indiana Jones "clone" hero with Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson starring as Mathayus, the Scorpion King.

The Scorpion King's story commenced in Ancient Egypt where this current franchise is set and unfortunately Johnson is nowhere to be seen anymore as he has been replaced by Victor Webster. Webster works, however The Rock did have a certain charm to this character.

Unfortunately for our hero, his kingdom has fallen and he has become a loan warrior in order to save the citizens of his era which brings him face to face with a nefarious villain called Talus who is played exceptionally clichéd by the entertaining Billy Zane.

Also joining the story is Ron Perlman as the majestic Horus, Dave Bautista (former WWE wrestler) as the warrior Argomael and the lovely Krystal Vee as Silda. With dark sorcery, demons and ghosts, the heroes certainly have their job cut out for them in this relatively low budget direct to DVD film.

The film is reminiscent of those 80's beefcake and cheesecake films such as Conan the Destroyer or Beast Master with its corny one-liners, over the top action scenes and villains that are oozing with stereotypical clichéd ridden dialogue.

It may not be the most original story to date but if you're into those sword and sorcery movies, The Scorpion King 3 has enough going for it to be entertaining yet ultimately forgettable.

If you go into this DVD expecting the world, than you'll be sorely disappointed but if you think it's going to be really bad, you might be pleasantly surprised. The only downside for me was some of the special effects which err on the side of budgetary constraints as opposed to the Mummy series. Decent video and audio quality make this a "fun" movie.
