Our stand in Scorpion King certainly does not have the presence of The Rock, but the franchise finally finds its place in the world: Being fucking ridiculous. I mean, what a cast! And those awful one-liners? Delivered with such enthusiasm, and after almost every strike! Incredible.
While it may be somewhat better than the film before it, it's not by a large amount. Victor Webster as the new Scorpion King is a suitable replacement. However much of the other actors involved seem less invested. The script tries to build on the first film but retreads familiar territory.

Worse than the aweful prequel. The action is good, but the story is thin yet convoluted, Olaf is annoying. The bad guy is annoying. The gore effects is so cheap it is literally hilarious. Seriously the bad guy rips off a dude's ear almost effortlessly as if he was breaking a cookie. It even makes the sound of a cookie breaking. And the puns, geez just no. The way Mathayus is written is literally not how he behaves. And it's so boring. Simply put this is basically The Scorpion King if the people who made Power Rangers did it.
Better than the second film, but still not a patch on the first.
Just awful. Terrible acting and horrible set design and poor special effects. The action scene were crafted with horrible choreography. A very badly written script with forced humor that wasn't funny.
A sequel that feels like a cheap rip-off, but this one is played with a more straight-face (though not all of the characters are as pleasant). The action is sparse, as is good humor, but it can be fun at times with its fantastical elements and spotty locations.
I had actually enjoyed this one a little bit more than the Scorpion King 2. I rather have Dwayne the Rock Johnson than the guy they chose to play the Scorpion King in this film. One thing wrong with it, The Scorpion King films should have happened in Egypt, not in Thailand. This film was more like the Beastmaster version of the Scorpion King because of the environment selected for the film.
Not great but not terrible. Fun little cheesy action/adventure.
The highlight is Kimbo Slice scene...which says it all.
Though slightly better than the atrocious prequel, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption is still low-budget schlock. After having lost his queen and his kingdom, Mathayus returns to his life as a mercenary and embarks upon a mission to stop a rogue warlord from raiding a fortress that protects the Book of the Dead. Victor Webster, Ron Perlman, and Billy Zane lead the cast, but none of them really tries to give a performance. And the fight choreography looks incredibly staged; carrying no danger or suspense. A pointless sequel, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption undermines the series.
