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.

Frankly, action alone just doesn't do it for me. There's no original thoughts or ideas to be found in the entire movie.

Another roller-coaster popcorn flick. My age is showing.

It's one fight and on to the next as Dwayne Johnson (You know him as the Rock) stars in this campy action film.

A Conan clone that works despite bad dialogue and nonstop mayhem.

It's a Saturday-matinee cliffhanger for the kid in all of us. (But not for little kids.)

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

I thought the story was predictable and 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 line either.

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.
