Dear God, no:


imdb link (3.6/10 stars). (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0299981/)

The world is falling into chaos. As he roams a crumbling city, Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander, remembers happier times before the love of his life left... Hopeless and alone, MacLeod finds his way to a band of immortal companions, including his mysterious friend Methos, and a mortal, Watcher Joe Dawson. Together this small group sets out on a quest to find the origin of the first Immortal and The Source of their immortality.

Adrian Paul must really be hurting for work... And yes, straight to DVD.

Rad. I was wondering when someone would answer all those questions for me.

LOL. The review on imdb is quite telling.

I accidentally watched a few minutes of it in the Sci-Fi channel and I seriously felt my neurons, one by one, yelling in horror and pain before popping in agonizing death.

The movie is fucking stupid with no discernible plot and with the worst acting ever witnessed since "Home Improvement" came to the air to forever stain TV signals.

Huh. I was all set to make a joke about how immortals weren't supposed to age, but Adrian Paul doesn't look too haggard, at least in the trailer.

No truer words have ever been said. Oh, and lulz.

Methos is the man.

Plus Bull from Night Court (Slaan Quince) was around in the same episode Christopher Lambert was in.


"Duncan Macleod, of the Clan Macleod."


Connor Macleod, same clan."

I hated End Game btw. Maybe it was made a few years earlier, and not just an attempt at reviving what is done, again, it may have been good (kind of a torch passing thing?)

Oh, and I forgot to add that the scenes with the cannibals running amok reminded me of the infamous pommel horse scene from gymkata.

Hoo boy, the Source sucked. WTF was up with the baddie and then Duncan running around superspeed Flash style? It ruined the fights. You couldn't see them. Highlander has always been about awesomely choreographed sword fights. When Dunc runs around the villian full auto attacking, and the guy blocks and spins so much he drills himself into the ground, a little piece of my soul died. A piece the snuff films and japscat I've watched couldn't even scratch. Fucking Looney Tunes gags in the fights. Holy fuck.

And, oh fuck, the ending. If I ever see another fetus again I'm getting a coat hanger and committing back alley abortion.
