The Scorpion King [WS] [Collector's Edition] [DVD] 
Hmmmm.... Story of overthrowing a dictator in a formidable land. Ruled by a cruel tyrant who destroys his enemy to control his kingdom with fear. If overthrowing a dictator was so easy....hmmm. Now there's a thought. The story line will bore you, but seeing Dwayne Johnson with hair will keep you guessing how it all unfolds.
Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
The new 4K UHD Blu-Ray of “The Scorpion King” is nicely improved over earlier versions. It is a fun flick, starring the Rock and others. I enjoyed details (including facial details) that I had not seen before. I also enjoyed the improvement in sound, and the greater dynamic range (UHD) contributed to immersive enjoyment, including scenes with bright lights and night scenes.
Owning the disc, one naturally can pause for refreshments, to rewatch a scene or replay the whole movie, at your own choice. No “Citizen Kane”, but within its type, this movie is a lot of fun, a fine entertainment.
