The Scorpion King: Cinema Synopsis
Inspired by the legendary Egyptian warrior, 'The Scorpion King' is set 5,000 years ago in the notorious city of Gomorrah, where an evil ruler is determined to lay waste to all the nomadic peoples of the desert. The few remaining tribes, never natural allies, have to unite or perish. Knowing their enemy relies on the visions of a sorcerer, they hire a skilled assassin, Mathayus (The Rock), to eliminate the visionary.

After infiltrating the enemy camp, Mathayus discovers that the sorcerer is in fact a beautiful woman (Kelly Hu). Rather than eliminate her, he takes her deep into the desert badlands, knowing that the ruler's henchmen will stop at nothing to rescue her and bring her back. Seriously wounded in the ensuing battle, Mathayus must find the strength to lead his scrappy band of allies back to Gomorrah for a final confrontation.

The Scorpion King: Tony's Comments
In the tradition of  "Conan The Barbarian" comes the "The Scorpion King", a $60 million dollar sword and sandal epic that could revive the genre and turn WWF wrestler "The Rock" into the action superstar of the New Millennium. "The Scorpion King" is in fact a spin off or prequel to "The Mummy Returns". It begins with a thrilling rescue sequence and then continues to move at an unrelenting pace from one action set piece to the next. "The Rock" is the first larger than life action hero with a strong physical presence to come along since Arnold Schwarzenegger wielded his mighty sword in "Conan". With this film "The Rock" has been given a dream role. He fits the character of the warrior who becomes a king, like a glove. "The Scorpion King" is a return to the golden age of peplum movies and he-man action heroes. The action is fast and furious, the sword fights spectacular, the sets lavish, and the humour is tongue in cheek. The film is perfect fodder for male cinemagoers and bridges the generation gap by having a special appeal to both fathers and sons. In simple terms "The Scorpion King" is perfect escapism and one of the most enjoyable pieces of popcorn entertainment to hit cinema screens in years.
