The Scorpion King (2002)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Something to Sting About

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Last summer's groovy popcorn flick The Scorpion King(2002, Universal, $26.98) opens with a bang and never stopsbanging. It's more or less a spin-off from Stephen Sommers's two mediocre Mummymovies, but it tops both of them in spirit, energy and fun.Strangely enough, The Rock provides his own commentary track,separate from director Chuck Russell's.
