The Scorpion King 4: Quest For Power (2015)


“I will hunt him down.” – Mathayus

Number of Times Seen – 1 (1 Mar 2019)

Brief Synopsis – Mathayus must stop an evil ruler from unleashing a powerful scared object that will cause havoc to the region.

My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been avoiding seeing ever since it came out 4 years ago.

The fact that Darren of Movie Reviews 101 chose it for next month’s Franchise MOTM at the LAMB made me take the plunge especially since this is the 4th of the 5 films in the series that I have now committed myself to watching within the next week or so.

I’m still baffled that they made so many of these films.

This is yet another terrible addition to this franchise.

The production value is quite poor and it looks so unrealistic throughout.

The script and dialogue are extremely silly and its real torture watching and listening to everything that happens here.

They do manage to have a few nicely choreographed fight scenes, but besides that, this film has so very little to offer in terns of entertainment.

It seems as if this franchise has been created in order to find a way to spotlight the acting careers of former professional wrestlers.

Unfortunately, they never really catch on tp the idea that these films are all really pointless and boring to watch.

I’m aware that they are probably still making money with these films otherwise, they wouldn’t keep going full steam ahead without a care as to whether there is an enjoyable plot or not.

Unfortunately, the entertainment value of this film is almost non-existent.

Bottom Line – Another really bad addition to this series. The production value is done extremely poorly and the script and dialogue are horrendous to watch and listen to. There are a few nicely choreographed fight scenes, but other than that, this film has very little to offer.  This franchise has turned into a spotlight for former professional wrestler and they never seem to get the point that these films are quite pointless to make. Obviously, they are still making money with them , but the entertainment value is almost non-existent.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – While filming the first take of the opening scene, Don Wilson was accidentally stabbed in the leg with a sword and required stitches.(From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
