Kali in the Media: The Scorpion King

Featured arts: There is a clear kali influence with a sinawali training scene. In addition, though not clearly FMA-specific, there is a pretty fun fire sword fight.


Overview: In an ancient time, predating the pyramids, the evil king Memnon is using the psychic powers of his sorceress Cassandra to fortell his great victories. In a last ditch effort to stop Memnon from taking over the world, the leaders of the remaining free tribes hire the assassin Mathayus to kill the sorceress. But Mathayus ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now with the help of the trickster Arpid, tribal leader Balthazar and an unexpected ally, it’s up to Mathayus to fufill his destiny and become the great Scorpion King.

Rating: 7.2 (of 10) – Some smashing sword fights and some decent set design. But anything starring the The Rock has limitations. Meanwhile, lots of people seem to really enjoy it.
