Highlander: The Final Dimension Review


The trouble with these immortals is that, ya know, they never die.

The third in a line of increasingly perplexing Highlander movies, Highlander: The Final Dimension (which, incidentally, appears to be the third dimension) steals wholesale the plot from the original, just throwing in some fresh faces. It's all here: Connor McLeod (Lambert, of course) on the run from the cops in New York, the girl investigator (Deborah Unger, in a role she's gotta regret), the sadistic bad guy with one name (Mario Van Peebles), the dutiful instructor (Mako), lots of swordplay, flashbacks... everything! If it wasn't set eight years later, no one would never know the difference (and of course, never mind the ultra-cheesy, low-budget special effects!).

Ultra-fans will rejoice in the face of the third installment (and it's nowhere near as bad as Highlander II), but most of you can give it a pass.

Aka Highlander III: The Sorcerer.
