Fixing a VFX Artist’s Worst Nightmare

Bad CGI can be cringeworthy even to a casual watcher of popular movies. It’s more than just going back to early CGI and chuckling at how bad it used to be; when you look at some of the CGI, the footage actually makes you uncomfortable. There one scene that many people will know.

I’m talking about the Scorpion King’s entrance in The Mummy Returns. The guys from Corridor Crew sure like to tear apart bad CGI, but in this video, they take a day and try their hand at making that should-be-epic entrance of the Big Bad of the film look a little better. 

Is it perfect? No, but even they accept that. Is it at least better than the original? Take a look at their tenacious attempt, and see for yourself.
