Cutting to the chase: 'Scorpion King 2: Rise of the Warrior' is a pleasant surprise, and well worth a look for fans of the genre and admirers of filmmakers who can do a lot with a little.
good gravy, are you wrong, ma'am. this movie is how we know good movies are being made, so we can contrast the two. if there are a hundred hallmarks of bad movie-making and storytelling, this one movie captures them all.
and there's a vast gulf of difference between 'brisk' pace and chucking any kind of serviceable story whatsoever. sure it's 'brisk'... when you don't have any real plot, things tend to move pretty fast. besides, it's got many scenes that you don't think will ever end as if they had a reason to exist in the first place.
ditch this crappy review. ms. wilson, you're wonky on this one.
