The first time a _Scorpion King_ movie has managed to keep hold of its lead actor, and this time around, Mathayus, the Canadian King of Asiegypt, teams up with Chicken Man, Cosplay Enthusiast and Mute Viking to traipse around 3000BC medieval England, using magic to disprove the existence of magic. Worried that the cast of _Quest for Power_ doesn't quite live up to the last entry? Fear not, for Lou Ferrigno and Rutger Hauer will show up briefly in the first five minutes and then be added into the closing credits in post-production! Michael Biehn will be unrecognisable in a completely disposable role he holds for all of two scenes! Even the guy who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister makes an appearance! Wait, sorry, I misread that. The guy who plays the role of the guy who plays the role of Tyrion Lannister in that one play that takes place in a different continent for a small part of a couple of episodes in season 6, makes an appearance. At the end of the day, _Scorpion King 4_ cannot muster the action of the first entry or the humour of the third, but hey, at least it's not the second one. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
