Andrew Divoff, the incredible actor who played the Djinn and his human alter ego, Demerest, in the first two films has been replaced by an utterly dreadful actor who plays the part as if he's in a kiddie's production of "The Ghost of Canterville Hall."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.
Unfortunately, Wishmaster 3 doesn't even follow the admittedly vague Wishmaster rules. People make wishes, but then the Wishmaster basically just kills them. Example: a guy wishes for two hot girls to be in love with him - they turn up, kiss him, then kill him. How does that fulfill his wish? Heck, I can think of ten ways in which having two hot girls who love you can be transformed into something horrible and murderous - but the writers of Wishmaster 3 couldn't. Pfui.
The villain is not ominous at all. I miss the guy from Wishmaster 2 - man he could ROCK a creepy grin.
The whole show is crippled by an idiot subplot in which the girl heroine can't bring herself to say "I love you" to her boyfriend. Even though she sleeps with the guy, she is tagged as having "intimacy issues". Really? The only bright point in the whole film is that when it's over and the evil djinn returned to his gem, all the people he killed aren't magically resurrected. Man I HATED that in the other films. Sadly it's not enough to make up for the suckitude otherwise.
Well, on to Wishmaster 4. Here's hoping.
