The 50 Worst Special Effects In Movie History

2. The Scorpion King

Movie: The Mummy Returns (2001)

There's definitely a hint of Dwayne Johnson in the Scorpion King seen at the end of 2001's The Mummy Returns—an essence of The Rock, if you will. The same kind of essence that Madden NFL 13 users see when their favorite players walk across the screen. Except with much less realism.

Hoping to present a half-human, half-scorpion hybrid, director Stephen Sommers went the fully animated route. Rather than take inspiration from, say, Electronic Arts, he and his effects crew apparently went back to the days of Atari. You'd be excused for mistaking The Mummy Returns for Dungeons & Dragons.
