The Scorpion King

Trivia: Did anyone else pick up the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom rip-off/reference? When Mathyus is in the harem of Lord Memnon and the archers come in, he cuts the gong off the wall and runs behind it as a shield, while the guards shoot at it in vain. He then busts out the window and jumps out of it.

Trivia: When the barbarian king is about to kill Mathayus's brother, he claims he's killed Babylonians, Mesopotamians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, and Sumerians, but he's never killed an Akkadian. In fact, all these civilizations are different names for people who lived in the Mesopotamia valley throughout much of ancient history. This is probably intentional, and may in fact be an inside joke.
