An alright movie. Had some good parts. Only worth a rental

Let's get one thing clear right away: "The Scorpion King is one of the worst movies of all time and is degrading to existence. We get another warrior story about a desert warrior who rises up against the evil army that's destroying his homeland. He captures the enemy's key sorcerer, takes her deep into the desert and prepares for a final showdown. It doesn't help when The Rock plays the warrior. Giving a performance as if he's in a spoofy sketch on SNL, The Rock is terrible through and through. This is a film that fails at providing cheap entertainment as well. Not one sight or sound feels polarizing or engaging. Director Chuck Russell should have learned from Peter Jackson or Mel Gibson on how to make well-cut action sequences involving swords,arrows,and all those good weapons. "The Scorpion King" has this ginormous budget of $60 million and plays as if it had only $3 million to play with. Lousy action blends like peanut butter and jelly on a nice piece of warm toast with horrifying dialogue, terrible art direction and costumes, and supporting cast members who act like they feel disappointing themselves for working with such lousy filmmakers. This is a low for everyone apart of it and everyone who saw this degrading mess. At least The Rock changed his named to Dwayne Johnson and cut his pony tail. He probably was disturbed by the memories of making this trash.
