Always did like this one. Not the best of the Highlander movies, but plenty good. It makes a huge, gaping flaw in the story though- it takes place 8 years after Connor Macleod killed the Kurgan to claim the Prize. Well, technically he did NOT claim the prize because the bad guy in this one (with his 2 immortal followers) were still alive but buried underneath rubble for almost 400 years. And even if that were not so, Duncan Macleod and all of his immortal friends and foes from the tv series (and Colin Macleod from the anime movie) would have been around, too. Okay, I'm getting far too into it here. This one and Highlander 2 were pretty much just there to milk the franchise for more money, but I still like it.

What do you do when you have an opportunity to make a sequel to a mvie with a completely closed ending? Make it anyways. At the end of the original Highlander movie, Connor MacLeod had defeated the last of the immortals. He could grow old and die. He could have children. The power of all then immortals in a single mind allowed him to know the thoughts of others and help make the world a better place.

Oops! Wait! There are still immortals alive, hidden in seclusion on holy ground. Connor only THOUGHT that he had won the prize. And thus, with a blatant attempt at explaining away something that had already happened, the producers opened to door to another Highlander movie.

This movie does have some redeeming qualities. Deborah Unger is the first. Amazingly sexy and paired well with Christopher Lambert, This movie is worth buying because she is in it. Another such redeeming quality is the sequence where Connor returns to the Highlands to find the strength and inspiration to go on. Backed by the amazing music of Loreena McKennitt, this part of the movie almost redeems the whole.

This is one of my favorite Highlander movies, and for the life of me I have no idea why so many didn't like this one as much. All I can say is yes it does follow the first Highlander film way to closely, especially the bad guy's portrayal, but it also stands on it's own adding to the mythological fantasy of one of my all time favorite movie and tv franchises of all time, "The Highlander"

Christopher Lambert is simply awesome in this role, and I really enjoy many of the films and shows he has made over the years.

Highlander 3 pretty much skips the plot of part 2, and one can state it can tie in with the TV show also. We learn how McCloud, the Highlander hero, learns the mystical arts from a Ninja Master in Japan who has magical powers that the "Ghengis Khan" like villain steals.

Then on to the present day where he believes he has defeated the last of the bad guys from the previous movie, but learns this "Darth Vader or Khan" like villain had been frozen in time and reawakened by Japanese earthquake scientists. The villain is on the loose in NYC, where the hero has to fight him Ninja style in a cosmic duel of time and space itself.

An extremely entertaining entry in the franchise, the villain is a little cheesy but the action sequences are pretty cool. I would say the main problem here is that re watching this movie you come to realize that all the writers of this film actually did was rewrite the story from the first film almost word for word.
