The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption

Synopsis: Mathayus's sorceress-queen is killed by a pest which ravaged his kingdom until it fell. Feeling guilty and a failure, the Akkadian resumed the life of mercenary. He's hired by Horus, king of the now dominant Near eastern kingdom, to help out defend the palace of Hindu king Ramusan, guardian of the Book of the Death, the last ally barring the bid for Hrus's throne by his rogue brother Talus, whose raids in the Far East yielded the largest army ever. Mathuyas is instructed to team up with simpleton Teutonic giant Olaf. Ramusan can't pay them the promised gold, but offers the hand of his daughter Silda, whose portrait shows a priceless medallion. Their fight is complicated by the mysterious Cobra, hired by Talus, who captured the princess, so they pair pretends to enter Talus's service, but finds out about an even more devious deception, while Talus captures the book and thus is able to conjure the warrior ghosts.

the great Scorpion King.

Please forgive our revelries, but

we cannot believe our good luck.

That being able, at one time,

to rid the world of an Akkadian

and, at the same time,

erase the memory

of your legendary failures.

To your people.

As well as to your queen.

Your queen was

a great sorceress...

How was it that she was unable

to see her own demise, huh?

Did you really think

that you could be

a leader of men? Hmm?

Akkadians are good

for but one thing.


You almost single-handedly

decimated a civilization

that took over

3,000 years to build.


the once mighty Scorpion King,

has lost his empire

and his beloved queen.

With nothing left to live for.

His only desire is to die well in

the pursuit of mercenary gold,

and freedom from

the pain that haunts him.

King Horus, the most

powerful ruler in the world,

faces a crisis that could

cost him his kingdom.

His brother, Ta/us,

a ruthless warrior,

has taken a legion of SOLDIERS to the

Far East to pillage its treasures

and amass an army

powerful enough

to return and

conquer Horus' kingdom.

Now, Talus marches on

the palace of King Ramusan,

Horus' last ally

in the known world,

and guardian of the

legendary Book of the Dead.

Horus must stop Talus before

he lays hands on the Book

and enslaves Ramusan's people.

For this,

he needs a fearless champion

willing to accept what is

certainly a suicide mission.

Well done, Mathayus.

Formidable work besting Siris.

He was one of my most

valued military advisors.

That's funny. He didn't seem

to have a head for battle.

Humor from an Akkadian, proof

that anything is possible.

We intercepted one of

his messenger parcels

detailing all of our

defensive strongholds.

Who was he working for?

My brother. Talus.

After my father died and

left the kingdom to me,

Talus became very, very angry.

He thought he was the

rightful heir to the throne.

With all due respect, Your Highness,

I have a few vessels of wine

and a small army of harem

girls to conquer tonight.

Can we just skip to the part where

you tell me who you want killed?

Your royal nobility didn't

take long to wear off.

Walk with me.

The king.

Someone that they call Cobra is the

leader of the tribal resistance.

Naming yourself

after a venomous creature?

Why didn't I think of that?

Once he finds out your mission

is to protect King Ramusan,

I'm hoping that

he comes to your aid.

Your chances of survival,

Mathayus, are minimal at best.

When do I leave?


Well, better start drinking.

I only need you

to hold Talus off

long enough for me

to get my army there.

King Ramusan will give you

10,000 pieces of gold

at the completion

of your mission.

I will give you another

10 upon my arrival.

That is, if you survive

long enough to collect it.

I'm sending someone with you.

I work alone.

You know that.

Mathayus, you stand to

help a great many people.

Perhaps that can provide some

redemption for past sins.

I'll never have

redemption for the past.

The gods will curse my passing,

and I will thank them for it.

I do this for money alone.

You all fight

like little girls.

- Which one of your...

- Idiots.

Mighty warriors

will accompany me?

Who will challenge me?

That one.

That ape?

Under what rock

did you find him?

He was one of the only survivors

of the great siege of Babylon.

We brought him into our ranks

because of his

unique skill set.

My men have yet to embrace him.

Go cry to your mama!

I wonder why.


Your hat looks stupid.


You Highness,

do you really think this...
