From Amazon.co.uk

Never has a franchise been more surprisingly prolific or brain-bogglingly convoluted than Highlander. In case you were wondering why, Endgame will give you an answer of sorts. It's always great to see folks hacking away at each other with swords, especially when they are imaginatively choreographed action-actors like Adrian Paul and Christopher Lambert. But it's all complicated by the fact that they shouldn't be together at all.

Ever since the first film, no writer has been able (or bothered) to follow the continuity it established. The second film (The Quickening) is considered forgettably apocryphal, with only the third (The Sorcerer) making some sort of vague chronological sense. Then the TV series began in 1992 (starring Paul) and created its own rules and timeline. Skip over a further TV spin-off and even an animated series, and we now have Endgame, which flips between present-day New York, 16th-century Scotland and various times in-between, with none of it even attempting to tie-in with anything that has gone before.

But if you can get past its basic inconsistencies, it's fun to see an aging Lambert in a kilt, still wielding that sword. The new baddies are pretty cool too, though, more importantly, the film proves conclusively that the original legend "There can be only one" was a complete lie. Heads will roll again. --Paul Tonks

3.0 out of 5 stars GOOD - COULD DO BETTER 20 Dec 2002
Format:DVD
I consider this film a missed opportunity to bring the original concept back on track. The villain of the story line - Mario van Peebles - was to similar to Clancy Brown in voice and mannerisms of the first "Highlander" story that after another scene where he does more gymnastics with his tongue while talking (why do they do that????) that after a while you stopped believing in him in the character. Another incident in the final sword fight where he is cut in half along the waist and the bottom half walked along to join the top half reminds you of the "Tom and Jerry" cartoons, this scene had no place in this movie. It has been often said - with some justification - that Christopher Lambert walks through his movies without putting to much emotion into the roles, this I'm afraid is another one. Having said that the script was so dire that even Lawrence Olivier would be hard pressed to do anything with the story----that more than anything was the main culprit. On the plus side the film is saved by it's "moments" between Christopher Lambert and Deborah Unger while he prepares to meet Mario van Peebles, the Celtic music running through the movie especially "Bonny Portmore" by Loreena McKennitt which was played through a good part of the movie (it even made me buy the CD "The Visit") and the Scottish scenery which made this an okay film rather than a total washout.

Although I still feel that the original Highlander should be considered a stand-alone movie, if you really want more, then Highlander III is worth watching.

Thankfully, this movie ignores the woefully mis-guided Highlander II as though it never existed, and continues 8 years after the events of the original.

While the plot is essentially the same as the original, it does have some highlights, such as revealing more of Connor MacLeod's past after leaving the Scottish highlands and a nice musical score involving celtic themes and the song 'Bonny Portmore' by Loreena McKennitt.

Like the original, the low budget special effects and sometimes poor acting are a downer, but if you can see past that, then it's not all that bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Heads will roll.....not in this one they dont. 14 Jun 2012
By Mr. S. Storey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Where are the heads? There's hardly any fighting in this one! It's ok as a movie and manages to rise above the level of one of the TV episodes, but only just. A curio piece for fans of the francise only.

2.0 out of 5 stars Highlander 3: Flogging a Dead Horse 10 May 2011
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Highlander was a classic case of a great concept resulting in a poor film made worse by Russell Mulcahy's terrible direction, but despite bombing at the box-office proved lucrative enough on home video to spawn a series that managed to make it look better with each sequel. Mulcahy's sequel, The Quickening, was even worse than the first, but even that towers over the third effort. Highlander 3 - The Sorcerer could just as well have been subtitled Flogging a Dead Horse, going out of its way to prove the law of diminishing returns. On the plus side it returns to the approach of the first film (chronologically it is set between I and II and the TV series, so you can pretend The Quickening never happened), but does nothing to improve on it, setting its sights firmly on the video shelf.

This time Lambert faces up to another psychotic immortal who has been trapped in a Japanese cave for 400 years while an American archaeologist (female, of course) discovers his secret and falls in love with him: you can fill in the gaps en route to the T2-style finale in a steel mill, but you'd be better off finding something else to do. It takes something to make you miss Mulcahy's look-ma-no-hands style of direction, but Andy Morahan obviously got very badly beaten with the lack-of-imagination stick as a child.

The loss of Connery is sorely felt, and, although Lambert still has some charisma and star quality left over, in keeping with tradition, the villain goes wildly over-the-top and then some with Mario Van Peebles giving the kind of performance that belongs in the most amateur of pantos, helped little by embarrassingly anachronistic wisecracking dialogue.

4.0 out of 5 stars getting better 29 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
Highlander III slots in well with the storyline from the first film. There is the same wooden acting, too, without the saving grace of Sean Connery. On balance, though, it it is a pleasant way to pass the time with both the scenery (both landscape and Miss Unger's, being very pleasing. maybe in the next film they will get it all right.

Highlander III. Christopher Lambert returns as the Highlander, an immortal man who has been alive for 400 years and needs to survive. This is by far the better sequel to the original film. When compared to Highlander 2 The Quickening, which had major trouble in spite of the futuristic image it tried to portray, we have a film with a storyline that follows on nicely from the end of the original film, Highlander.
Mario Van Peebles takes the mantle of the foe and is very convincing as someone you just would not want to meet.

Whilst this was never in contention for any oscars, it's a better film than is often made out.
For a start, it ignores Highlander 2. It is decently made, with decent action, stunts & visual FX.
Mario Van Peebles makes for an excellent villain as immortal Kane, and there is plenty of sword fighting. The plot is pacey too.
The movie is NOT uncut. I saw this at the cinema in 1994, and was amazed at how explicit a sex scene was! The strongest I had seen in a mainstream movie, alongside 1982's Xtro.
Folks, it is CUT here, sorry, but the rest of the film is solid fantasy action, with the nonsensical sci fi elements of Highlander 2 firmly jettisoned!
Highlander was the definitive classic BUT this is easily the best of all the sequels.
