Highlander: The Final Dimension ★½ Highlander 3: The Magician; Highlander 3: The Sorcerer 1994 (R)

Immortal Conner MacLeod (Lambert) battles master illusionist Kane (Van Peebles), who seeks to rule the world. Aiding Ma-cLeod is Alex Smith (Unger), a research scientist who discovers Kane was once buried beneath a mystical mountain along with three other immortal warriors some 300 years before. MacLeod returns to his old Scottish stomping grounds to prepare for battle. Lots of action and special effects, really dumb storyline and overacting—even for a fantasy film. Original theatrical release was PG-13 and 94 minutes; the director's cut has been reedited and footage added. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Christopher Lambert, Mario Van Peebles, Deborah Kara Unger, Mako; D: Andrew Morahan; W: Paul Ohl; C: Steven Chivers; M: J. Peter Robinson.
