Hwal’s most liked review

The Scorpion King

★★

I mean even if this movie sucks I must admit that The Rock is probably one of the coolest actors of all time. Taking an arrow straight out of your back and then use it to kill an enemy? That's Chuck Norris-worthy. Two stars only for that!

Notice: This list also includes movies from Taiwan and co-productions with China even if they are in…
