The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior's 1080p, 1.78:1 framed transfer on Blu-ray fails to impress. The best looking aspects of the disc are the studio logo and the film's title card. Detail is moderately good throughout, but there is a dullness to the transfer that never lets it truly shine. Interior shots fail to impress, noted during a sequence when Mathayus goes to Sargon's palace in chapter three. The limited color palette ventures towards the red side of the scale with only moderate black levels, poor shadow detail, a lack of general detail, flat looking objects, and no vibrancy at all. There is a hint of green to flesh tones and other objects, too, that is noticeable in many of the film's darker sequences. The underground battle sequence in chapter seven exhibits all the same characteristics noted above, and it's extremely noisy in the blacks, too. Black levels do look good in some scenes, and the film's brightest outdoor scenes, like that on the ship to Egypt where Mathayus and Layla meet Ari the Greek, look rather nice. There is a good transfer here, yearning to get out, but it's masked by a myriad of annoyances that make it rather bland. As far as it's place among all the high definition transfers on the market, we've seen much better, and this is certainly Universal's worst looking disc to date, though it must be noted that until now, the studio's discs have all highly impressed.
