As prophesied, Mathayus’ (Webster) kingdom is falling apart due to a deadly plague. When it claims his wife’s life, too, Mathayus resumes the life of a mercenary. He is hired as an assassin and paired with a Scandinavian warrior, Olaf (Bostin Christopher), by the powerful king of Egypt Horus (Perlman), to fight his wicked brother, Talus (Billy Zane) who is trying to conquer his kingdom. Meanwhile, Talus sets out to steal the Book of the Dead from Ramusan (Temuera Morrison), an ally of Horus, and kidnaps his daughter, Princess Silda (Krystal Vee) as well.
