Utter Trash!By StoneT (15 reviews) from Totnes, England , 23 Jan 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]What on earth were they thinking? I can't believe I wasted time watching this!
OK the acting was generably mediocre, it was probably made for TV, probably on tight budget, but that is no escuse for such CHEESE!
At one point a group of immortals beat the c&/\p out of some thugs. Fair enough, but then a petrol tanker appears from nowhere and blows up. WTF? Had they just underspent on their pyrotechnics budget? This was followed by the group walking hero-like from the smoke, accompanied by Queen's 'Princes of the universe'? Is this a spoof? Is it ironic? I wish! That might have been funny.
That, along with the 'entire-film-recap-for-those-who-still-don't-quite -get-it' near the end, were the low points but none of the rest was much better. All the action (and most of the rest of the film) was entirely CG and not even done well.
And since when can you see all the planets in the solar system and the sun with the naked eye, at night?!

really should't of botheredBy jpgriffiths007 (1 review) , 16 Apr 2013Well what can I say I thought it couldn't get any worse than highlander 2 which was bad until the renegade version was released but highlander the source is probably the worse film I have ever seen why did they make it DO NOT WATCH FORGET IT EVER EXISTED however watch at your own risk
My eyes still hurtBy stanford (2 reviews) from Pembroke , 20 Sep 2012If you are a highlander fan at all do not watch this film it is a visual abomination.
If someone comes up to you with it RUN, RUN AND HIDE AND DON'T LOOK BACK 'EVER'
Deny it ever existed - truely awful!By BarRoomHero (1 review) , 12 Sep 2012I am a fan of the first film and the TV series and I watched this primarily for Methos but OML what a load of.....
Why did they make this?By Metaliant (50 reviews) from Walsall , 25 Apr 2012I rather like the first and third Highlander films, hated the second film and don't considered it part of the Highlander universe, watched at least 3 seadons of the TV series and even watched the cartoon which was better than the 2nd and last 2 films.
There are HUGE major plot holes in it that don't explain the Game, where the Immortals and Watchers came from and how it all started and as for the ending.......Well, I have seen worst endings but I have seen more better endings from similar rubbish films.
I wouldn't recommend this film to any Highlander fan at all.
Extends the highlander (TV) franchiseBy Marc F from Suffolk, England , 11 Dec 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Fan of the first Highlander Film? Not watched the highlander TV series? Do NOT watch this, like other reviewers: you will not understand what's going on!
Fan of the series? This is an excellent conclusion to both the film series and TV series (more so the TV series, with many favourite characters making an appearance).
Highly unlikely to be enjoyable as a stand-alone film if you've not seen any of the others/series.
Without providing too much in the way of spoilers, after a very slow start (it's now post-apocalyptical, when did that happen?) the film turns the whole 'there can be only one' on its head and makes you reevaluate the entire original story line (skipping film 2 of course!).
