Andrew Divoff, the incredible actor who played the Djinn and his human alter ego, Demerest, in the first two films has been replaced by an utterly dreadful actor who plays the part as if he's in a kiddie's production of "The Ghost of Canterville Hall." As for the human alter ego, a professor at a University, he is far too physical for the part. The Djinn is supposed to attack mentally with the mind, not throwing people at walls.
The story of this film concerns a college student named Diana Collins who unwittingly awakes the Djinn when looking over an ancient artifact. The Djinn kills a perverse college professor and takes on his identity to get to Diana. He then goes around the university, picking off students one by one on his quest for Diana. Sounds entertaining? It's not. The twisted wishes have none of the ghoulish irony that the original's wishes had and are no fun at all. I mean, c'mon! Think about how much material you have here! A thousand-year-old genie at a modern day university? What's happening to our screenwriters?
I wasted 5 bucks and 90 minutes of my life when I rented this movie, and I think the morons who threw together this awful movie should give me a refund!
Take my advise, if you MUST see it, RENT IT. FOR GOD SAKE DON'T BUY IT!
I hope the original is better then this installment but i have no plans of watching it after this pile of evi(less). You might want to watch it to complete the trilogy if you enjoy the first ones. This movie is just so lame from beginning to end....didn't scare me one bit. Bad direction to boot.
The plot doesn't explain how the jewel got back in the case; at the end of the second movie, it just disappeared. There is no mention of the 1000 souls and the Wishmaster doesn't really get into his granting of the wishes. And since when was the sword of St. Michael able to kill the Djinn. There is no mention of this in the previous two films.
The third installment lacks the visceral energy and clever dialogue evidenced in the first two films, and director Chris Angel's pacing isn't as tight. I'll watch the fourth simply to see how the series turns out, but I was admittedly disappointed in this one.
Sean, keep Jason at home until he captures at least some of your talent!
I give this movie 3 stars only for John Novak. He is the only redeeming quality in this movie.
