Immortal villains over act so much....
on 6 December 2013
Connor Macleod is back, and this time he's brought the English bloke from the TV series with him. When his friend Rachel is killed, he gets all misty, and goes to a place called The Sanctury, which is like The Colony from Double Team.
Then the confusion kicks in, which is just what you'd expect from a Highlander movie.
You see, Lambert killed Bruce Paynes dad, so Payne has taken his time getting revenge, and now wants it. He has a few hench men, and Paul is along for the ride, because the show was quite successful.
Immortals are not supposed to age, but what really distracts you from the film is how different Lambert looks in this dreadful movie.
It's not the fact that he's aged, it all happens to us, but its the fact that he looks like he has a rare skin condition, and it really takes you away from the paper thin narrative.
If you've seen Bruce Payne in any other film, you know that he is a pantomime villain, but he is the best thing in this, and really lifts the film whenever he's in it.
Paul is in it for no other reason than to fight Lambert, and for both Highlander completists, this is something big.
For everyone else though, its a really poor sequel to an average film, with trashy effects.
At least Highlander 2 was funny....
