Product Description

See how the legend of The Scorpion King began! When a young Mathayus witnesses his father's death at the hands of the king (UFC Champion Randy Couture), his quest for vengeance transforms him into the most feared warrior of the ancient world. From the director of Resident Evil: Extinction and Highlander comes a heroic adventure filled with heart-stopping action and thrilling visual effects!


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

    So this year my family decided to celebrate Christmas a week in advance. We were all very joyous and consumed unhealthy amounts of egg nog. When it came time to open presents, I exchanged gifts with one of my dear friends. He gave me an iPod full of my favorite Kenny Chesney songs. I love Kenny Chesney. I knew then that what I got him would be worthless in comparison, but he assured me it's the thought that counts. So I handed it over to him, at which point he paused thoughtfully. "Before I open this," he said, "I just have something real quick to say. Just something real quick." He proceeded to ask me if I'd ever seen The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior. Before I could answer, a somber expression came over his face. He informed me of how much he hated the movie, specifically on Bluray. He absolutely hated it. Then he gave me a smile and began unraveling my gift to him. Once he popped open the box, he was visibly overcome with joy at the sight of his favorite dripping wet jumbo shrimp that lie within. He decided to save them for later, probably because he was so stuffed with fruit cake. To his surprise, he discovered that there was indeed another gift beneath the shrimp. But gradually the surprise turned into dread, as he realized that the second gift just so happened to be The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior. Specifically on Bluray. I was humiliated and horrified. He looked at me with such shame. "This is just awful," he said. "This is terrible. I don't even want the shrimp anymore. The shrimp is tainted. It's just tainted."

    And then he flung the remainder of his egg nog upon my person. To my dismay, everybody else in the room followed suit. By the end of it all I was soaked in egg nog. It permeated my flesh. No one loved me. I was alone, and all because of this movie.

    The shrimp is tainted. The shrimp... is tainted. I'm tainted. Everything that touches this movie is tainted.

    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.

    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.
