Written by KGF Vissers. It was like a test: can the third part of a franchise that spawned out of another franchise that wasn't that good be any good? Can Ron Perlman and Billy Zane save it? And the test was failed miserably. Let me explain this to you in a way that anyone can understand: if you watch this on fast forward x4, it will be a total waste of your time. At least Ron Perlman has a small role appearing at the beginning and the end of the film.
Billy Zane does his usual evil smiling villain, but it is not enough. And the "Scorpion King", not only does he not act like one, he actually plays the entire movie as a positive hero with no baggage. The only connection remains the "deep voiced" words of the narrator who pretty much says: "this is the Scorpion King!
And the actor He played in Mutant X, for crying out loud, and looks like an underwear model. Bottom line: avoid this film at all costs. Or watch it at x8, maybe it works then. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
