Editorial Reviews

The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior is a dazzling prequel to the 2002 adventure movie The Scorpion King, the latter starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Mathayus, the warrior who takes on an evil army attacking his homeland. The Scorpion King 2 stars Michael Copon as a young Mathayus, who trains to become one of his king's warriors and then declares vengeance on the evil Sargon after the latter kills Mathayus' father. The hero's ascension as a noble fighter coincides with Sargon's usurping of the throne, leading Mathayus to seek a supernatural means to destroy him. His quest leads him to the infamous labyrinth in which the Minotaur feasts on men, and to the underworld itself, a horrifying place in which people become ensnared and die very slowly. Accompanied by a childhood friend-turned-warrior (Karen Shenaz David) and a philosopher-huckster (Simon Quarterman), Mathayus bravely but uncertainly battles through one obstacle after another to complete his journey. Directed by Australian filmmaker Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction), The Scorpion King 2 is a suspenseful and sometimes startling feature, with art direction and special effects that evoke the mysteries of ancient Greece and indeed make the underworld look like a most unearthly and nightmarish place. --Tom Keogh

1.0 out of 5 stars This King's Reign Should Come to an End Soon... September 4, 2008
After only amassing a moderate box office success with 2003's "The Scorpion King" starring former wrestling superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Universal Pictures apparently put on hold any potential sequels to the prequel (that sounded funny... oh well) of their popular "The Mummy" series. In 2008, Universal dusted off the character of the Scorpion King for another shot at movie audiences; however, this effort would not star The Rock, as it was to be a prequel (a decision that I believe was prompted by The Rock most likely rejecting the notion of starring in another `Scorpion King' movie), and it would also skip any kind of theatrical release, going directly to DVD. So, let me think about this for a second, the star of the original movie most likely rejected the idea of reprising his role for a sequel, potentially causing the shift from sequel to prequel, then the movie skips theaters altogether and goes directly to DVD, finally getting released around the same time as another `Mummy' movie was hitting theaters. Does anyone else besides me believe that this spelled potential disaster for this second entry in the inferior spin-off series to "The Mummy"? Let's have a show of hands... Yeah, that's what I thought, pretty much everyone sees this movie as nothing more than a hack job primarily made for cashing in on the recently released "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor".

"The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior" centers on a young Mathayus (Michael Copon) as he begins learning the ways of an assassin in order to better serve his king. However, when a warrior named Sargon (Randy Couture) murders Mathayus' father, Mathayus forgoes his oath of honor to begin a quest for vengeance against the evil Sargon and all those that side with him.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wait til it comes out on cable. August 20, 2008
By Soriea
I had looked forward to seeing a Scorpion King 2 movie. Needless to say I picked this up not expecting much and luckily my expectations weren't shattered.

First the movie lacks, well it lacks the Rock. Second, it lacks the pure fun factor of the original Scorpion King movie. With that said, the acting wasn't oscar worthy but I didn't pick it up expecting it to be. It is worth watching, it is NOT worth spending 30 on it to pick it up in blu-ray. DVD, maybe. This movie is for those whom liked the old B adventure movies/tv shows. Kevin Sorbo, Hercules, Xena..though those shows are better then this you get the idea.

This movie is for those who aren't overly critcal and just like to watch adventure movies. If you are one of those people that analyze and rip every detail to shreds, this movie isn't for you.

The movie stars ex Power Ranger Michael Coupon. While he brings decent fight skills to the movie, his acting is subpar. Not horrid just not great.

The plot is your basic I need to get revenge for the death of my father. His father was suppose to be this elite warrior who frankly looked more like the janitor at my local health club. He wasn't believable as this invincible warrior that Matheyus looked up to.

The wizard/king was a complete waste of time, not believable and reminded me more of an ex wrestler and maybe he is, I didn't find it worth the effort to look up. He was no replacement for Memnon in the first Scorpian king who oozed evil fairly well.

I would go into more detail, but to be honest, after a few weeks, I've already started to forget half of the movie where as I still remember the original Scorpian King years and years later.

I for one like B movies as I'm not overly critical. But this movie is not worth the blu-ray purchase. DVD maybe but I'd wait for cable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware the weakened Franchise sequel of doom December 17, 2009
I have to say honestly, that this is the biggest pile of crap I have watched in a long time. There, I said it, sorry to be so blunt, but I can't be nice about this.
The connection to the story of the "Scorpion King" is about as tenuous as the directors grip on this movie.
I don't mind sword and sorcery hokum, even the low budget variety, but I ended up feeling sorry for the actors in this one.
We have all the standard makings of a franchise follow up.

Hero - check
Babe - check
Geek - check
Bad guy - check

Add the stock additional characters to add supposed depth, but there chiefly to die in some grisly fashion, some tricky situations, monsters, and a good dose of "dark magic" and you've about got it all.
Oh, I almost forgot, the hero's father was killed by the Bad Guy, so was his brother, and probably his hamster, so revenge is foremost in his mind, most of the time.

This is dire, the acting is awful, the special effects are very cheap and choppy, even the blue screen stuff looks bad.
On a separate note, the Sword of Damocles (needed to kill the bad guy) the last time I checked wasn't left spinning in the Underworld, but hung from a single horse hair. Oh, and the minotaur lived in a Labyrinth, not a dungeon. Oh, and the underworld was ruled by Hades, not some seductive dark witch................
I could go on, and on
Like a mug I purchased the Blu Ray hoping for great things, and got stung (at least I picked it up cheap). Save your money folks, if you must see it, rent it.

When I saw this movie it seem that, this movie should have came out first before the Scorpion King. Because this version tells how he becomes, the Scorpion King as a youngman.
