What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Scorpion King is a 2002 action fantasy movie in which Dwayne Johnson plays a warrior seeking revenge for his brother's death at the hands of a ruthless king. There's a lot of action violence and frequent death, but there isn't much blood and there's no gore. Furthermore, the cheesiness of turn-of-the-century CGI special effects lessens the terror in, say, watching a man getting killed by an attacking swarm of red ants. There are some vivid and demonic images, including attacking cobras, an impaled body, and a dead child. And there are very vivid sound effects making on- and off-screen violence more explicit with spurting and squishing sounds. There are sexual references and innuendo, and non-explicit sexual situations, including two women in a man's bed. There are no four-letter words, but there is some profanity, such as "yak piss." A woman emerges from a bath naked with her long hair strategically covering her breasts.
