In an ancient time, predating the pyramids, the evil king Memnon is using the psychic powers of his sorceress Cassandra to fortell his great victories. In a last ditch effort to stop Memnon from taking over the world, the leaders of the remaining free tribes hire the assassin Mathayus to kill the sorceress. But Mathayus ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now with the help of the trickster Arpid, tribal leader Balthazar and an unexpected ally, it's up to Mathayus to fufill his destiny and become the great Scorpion King. Anonymous Plot not found

[after rescuing Jesup from certain death] Mathayus: You're lucky we have the same mother. Arpid: Let me tell you, after a long day of looting and pillaging, there is no greater city than Gomorrah... except maybe Sodom. Jesup: Live free. Mathayus: Die well. Mathayus: Live free. Balthazar: Rule well. Arpid: Where are we going? Mathayus: The Valley of the Dead. Arpid: No one goes through the Valley of the Dead. That's why they call it the Valley of the Dead. [the Scorpion King & the sorceress ride away on the camel] Arpid: Wait for me please! [Memnon's Guards can be heard heading towards Mathayus and his young guide] Mathayus: Get ready! I'll kill half, you kill half! Urchin: [the boy stares at him quizically] Mathayus: All right. I'll kill them all! Urchin: [Tugs on Mathayus' arm] Why don't we go around and not kill any? [Mathayus revives an unconscious Arpid] Arpid: What happened? Mathayus: You got us in! I knew you could do it. A jug of your finest wine for my road-weary friend here. Arpid: Wait a minute... the last thing that, that I remember was this huge Akkadian fist coming straight into my... The Sorceress: Rivers of blood will never bring peace. Memnon: But they will bring obedience. That is enough for now. [about the catapult in his laboratory] Philos: It was meant to be a quick means of transportation, but there was a little problem with the landings. Balthazar: Watch yourself Akkadian Mathayus: No need for concern, Miss. Balthazar: Ohh he's gonna pay for that. [Mathayus, Arpid, and the Sorceress have stopped at a pond] The Sorceress: Do you think it's safe to drink? [Arpid jumps into the pond] Mathayus: Not anymore. [Mathayus enters a room where Philos is working] Philos: Good lord. Are you going to kill me? Mathayus: Maybe later. Philos: Like ALL of my inventions, Memnon will try to use it for war. Mathayus: Where is Memnon? Philos: Ay, you mean to kill him, do you? Mathayus: [raises his sword to Philos' throat] Yes. Balthazar: Who dies first? The Sorceress: If you face Memnon, you'll die! That is your destiny. Mathayus: I make my own destiny. [they kiss] Queen Isis: You're judgment is clouded! Balthazar: My judgment keeps all of you alive! Mathayus: I've come for the woman... and your head. Mathayus: [after catching their fee] As long as one of us still breathes, the Sorcerer will die. [they turn to leave. Balthazar pulls Mathayus's kama out of a pole] Balthazar: Assassin! [Mathayus turns, Balthazar throws the kama. Mathayus catches it] Mathayus: Him... we'll kill for free. Jesup: Horses are faster. Mathayus: But camels are smarter. Mathayus: And how is it you see this? I thought you lost your powers when you... [arches brow, suggestively] The Sorceress: Can you think of a better way to keep a king from taking advantage? [smiles] Neither could my ancestors. Mathayus: You! You betrayed your own father? Takmet: Yes. He was very shocked. [holds up his father's head] Takmet: You could tell by the look on his face. Arpid: [tied upside down over a fire] Stop! Stop, listen to me! I am a high priest of Set! Spare me, and I shall bless thee in five different languages! Torturer: You'll scream in five different languages, horse thief. [first lines] [the barbarian chieftain is holding up a skull] Barbarian Chieftain: We have killed Babylonians! [the barbarians cheer, he holds up another] Barbarian Chieftain: We have killed Mesopotamians! [the barbarians cheer] Barbarian Chieftain: But we have never had the pleasure of killing... an Akkadian. Jesup: [Tied up] May the gods have pity on you, for my brother will not. [Mathayas storms in and kills the Barbarians] Mathayus: I may be a king, but I'm a wrestler first. [piledrives guard] [Mathayus and Arpid are buried up to their necks in sand. Around them, the guard drops burning scraps of cloth into the ant mounds] Arpid: Fascinating, isn't it? The smoke, it causes the fire ants to abandon their homes, you see? [the fire ants swarm out of the mounds, towards them] Arpid: All the sooner to feast on our naked heads. [laughs] Mathayus: You think this is funny? Arpid: It's a little bit funny, yes. You see, I am about to escape, while you on the other hand are about to die a horrible death, for leaving me to die last night! [after getting inside the city gates] Mathayus: All right, that was the easy part. Everybody know what to do? Balthazar: Cripple the guards. Philos: Ignite the powder. Arpid: And try not to get killed. [after getting inside the city, the Urchin pokes his head out of the wagon] Mathayus: What are you doing here? You could get hurt! Urchin: So could you! Balthazar: Where do you think you're going with my horse? Arpid: To Gomorroh. Nothing we say will stop him. Balthazar: Without your sorceress? Mathayus: She returned to save the lives of you and your people. I won't let her face Memnon's wrath alone. Step aside. Balthazar: Akkadian, you're riding to your death. If I let you ride alone... [pause. Balthazar grins] Balthazar: What glory would there be left for me? [walking through the desert, Mathayus, Arpid, and Cassandra hear a huge explosion and a plume of smoke rises. Philos appears, soot-covered and grinning ecstatically] Philos: It works! It works! [sees them] Philos: My lady! How lovely to see you in this desolate place! Here, let me show you! It works! Come, come! [Cassandra runs to him] Philos: My lady sorceress... you see? I worked it out. My Chinese formula. My magic powder works! All I needed was salt - peter salt. It was here all the time! This place is just full of it! By the way, do any of you happen to have any water?

- This movie is a prequel to a sequel (_The Mummy Returns (2001)_ (qv)) to a movie (_The Mummy (1999)_ (qv)) that was a re-make of another movie (_The Mummy (1932)_ (qv)) that was made 70 years prior.

- More scenes had to be shot due to the movie being around 70 minutes long after being edited

- 'Dwayne Johnson (I)' (qv) has said that he intentionally shied away from using any trademarks of his WWF character The Rock, in order to give the Scorpion King character a life of its own. The only exception was "The People's Eyebrow," which he does in response to another character's reference to a harem. He said he included the People's Eyebrow to acknowledge the "millions and millions" of Rock fans. However, The Rock's Entry music is included briefly in the score.

- 'Vince McMahon' (qv) is an Executive Producer on the movie only because of the use of the name "The Rock" which he owns.

- While filming the fight scene between Mathayus and Balthazar, 'Michael Clarke Duncan' (qv) accidentally leaned too far forward, allowing 'Dwayne Johnson (I)' (qv)'s elbow to make direct contact with his jaw, knocking him to the ground.

- 'Dwayne Johnson (I)' (qv)/The Rock's payday of $5.5
