This movie isn't nearly as bad as the reviews led me to believe. It wasn't as engaging as the first Scorpion King, but it does leave many openings for spin-offs for: the Mummy, Scorpion King, and a few others.

I'm pretty sure that it is less historically accurate than the others, and the key for the Book of the Dead did not match up with the other stories in the series. The action scenes are intense and use a lot of martial arts.

Overall, for an immediate DVD release, it's not half bad. However, price-wise, I think I was better off renting it, than buying the DVD.

Retread:
(1.) There's actually a Hollywood props warehouse where all the studios store props, costumes, etc., to be reused over and over. Well, this film must have raided that warehouse. I saw costumes, swords, sets, gold chalices from every era and movie ever made. Yes, another Book of the Dead prop.
(2.) And, the costumes had that cheap, machine cut and patterned, faux leather look with lots of big brassy baubles that have no value other than to look shiny to Magpies that like to collect them for nesting. I wonder if the fashion design students that are hired have any historical or practical knowledge of the period/subject.
(3.) The script seemed like a melt between 21st century urban jargon and script writers that have watched too many early 20th century B movies about ancient Romans, Greeks, Mesopotamians, whatever with their pretend period language. My favorite line was "Death to the invaders!" How many movies have we heard that line from?
(4.) What can one say about the acting other than they must have had a week to fill, or it's the usual Willis over-the-hill just show up and regurgitate my stereotype acting.
(5.) Directing, and this is great, just one example. Around 13 minutes into the film our two heros attack a campsite of thieves; needless to say, lots of really bad fighting scenes. So, the bad guys get tossed into the campfire which happens to be heating a metal pot propped between two poles. The bad guys thrash around destroying the pot and fire and run off, also on fire. The very next scene we see our two conquering heros admiring how they pummeled the thieves and guess what is standing right next to them? The campfire, as if nothing had happened, with the pot miraculously standing undisturbed between the two poles.
(6.) Can't wait for Scorpion KIng 4.

"Your mission is to defeat my brother." Mathayus's (Webster) kingdom has fallen and his wife has died. He is now an assassin that is hired by King Horus (Perlman) to stop the rise of his brother and the army of ghost warriors. I have to start off by saying that I didn't really like the original. To me it was very cheesy and over the top and more of a comedy then an action movie. After watching 2 & 3 the first one looks like an Oscar winner. This review will be short because it was a struggle to make it through and I did end up falling asleep a few times and I think I missed some important stuff, but I didn't care enough to rewind it. If you like the others you will like this one. If you didn't then I would avoid it. Overall, a movie for fans of the series only. I give it a D+.

Exotic looking Victor Webster has assumed the title role taking over in a mostly deadpan fashion. The Akkadian king has fallen from grace and is now on a quest from King Horus (Ron Perlman in a minor role) to go after his rival brother Talus (Billy Zane). Talus is on the march against Horus' ally in the eastern kingdom (India) in order to obtain the "Book of the Dead."

Webster is forced to work with the oafish Olaf (Bostin Christopher) from northern Germania. He has a wife Olga and 17 daughters. There are many stereotypes and if I started in on how this film is an anachronistic and historical nightmare, I would be writing a tome after the first 10 minutes. The movie takes on the aspect of a "B" comedy by adapting modern sayings to its age. For instance, a prisoner gets his ear ripped off by Talus who then holds the ear to his mouth and says, "Might you hear me now?"

The movie is dotted with this type of humor.

Dave Bautista plays Argomael the head of the Indian group. They also speak English but with an accent unlike the Akkadians, Egyptians (?), and the frequently belching Olaf. There is a fourth party in this...a person named "Cobra." Krystal Vee, a trained Thai kick boxer, plays the princess who must be rescued. Lex de Groot, who plays a messenger, is also listed as Billy Zane's stunt double, although I couldn't tell when he needed one.

There is a quest within a quest, an oriental harem, a blond Japanese warrior, and ninja style warriors complete with cg ninja action. Billy Zane was excellent as the bad guy. The movie works when it is a "B" comedy. The serious scenes highlight the bad script and acting.

Did not enjoy this movie. Love the first movie with the Rock (Dwayne Johnson). This third movie wasn't a good follow up. The story line, the characters just didn't reflect the first movie at all in my opinion.
