“In a Nutshell”® rating: 0/10
It is usually thought that any fourth in a series is the worst. Well, it is more than true in the case of Highlander. You can go ahead and read my review, but the bottomline is: don’t see it.
With attempts at creating extra-ordinary special effects, the movie falls a bit short (like what, a few miles?) of anything that can be termed interesting (I mean, even soap operas are ok). We all know the story: there are immortals, and they die (?), and only one of them lives (now maybe he (or she) ) should be called immortal. What we want to see when we go to see a “Highlander” is something more than that, or atleast a good depiction. Highlander gives nothing of that. It actually is a good movie if all you are interested is your date, and you are worried she might see the movie and not talk to you. With this movie playing she will have to talk to you.
In one scene, there is an utterly needless and explicit sexual content, that looks like interference from an adult-movie playing in the next theater. It has no relevance to the story, and is not long enough to make a movie a success using that weapon.
