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.
"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.Read more ›
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.
