Highlander III: The Sorcerer

I haven’t ever seen this movie before tonight. I bought it because I wanted to have all three of the Highlander movies in my collection, but never really felt the need to watch it. As I watch it tonight I realize that this is perfectly fine, because this movie doesn’t have much need to be watched. It hardly has a reason to exist. When this came out in 1994 the far superior television series had already been on the air for two years, so what could possibly have possessed the makers of this film to create this half-assed Highlander rip-off? I’m guessing it was an attempt to cash in on the first movie – an attempt that fails on just about every level.

The first Highlander movie had class, had an edge to it, had a unique sense of cool that subsequent attempts simply could not capture.
