The Scorpion King 3:The Battle for Redemption
It's 2012 and we have another Scorpion King movie and we are now on a third actor playing the Scorpion King - Victor Webster.
Webster most natby had been in Mutant X and Continium He's fine in the role not as muscular as The Rock but he can hadle himself in the fights.
This movie is a sequel to the First movie (so for those following on the chronology goes Scorpion King 2, The Scorpion King, The Scorpion King 3, The Mummy Returns prologue.)
The kingdom Mathius gained in the first movie has falled and Casandra has died, we see Cassandra as Matthius remembers his wife and it's shots of Kelly Hu from the first movie.
Matthius has returned to being a mercenary and is hired by King Horus (Ron Pearlman). Horus is facing rebellion from his brother Talus (Billy Zane). Horus has sent the Book of The Dead to his ally King Ramusen (Temeura Morrison) and Talus is attacking Ramusen to get the book.
Matthius is sent with a Teutonic warrior Olaf, the pair make a good team.
There's a good plot were we discover that the book can release Warriors and they challenge Mathius and Olaf in a battle.
There is a suggestion that The Scorpion King is a legend.
The movie is enjoyable and ends with Mathius getting a new wife and kingdom.
