If you are between the age of 8 and 18,
this comic-book movie could be fun enough. But I found the entire
film just lots of action scenes slapped together, barely holding
a story that goes from point A to point B.

The Scorpion King features
pro-wrestler superstar called the Rock.

a little lifeless. It also didn't seem to try hard enough to
be clever. A little more originality wouldn't have been out of
I'm sure that wrestling supporters will
love to see their big hero on the big screen, but 60 minutes
of comic-book violence was a little too much for me to handle.
