Climactic Finale
29 August 2001 | by randomnameSee all my reviews

This third installment in the Duncan trilogy blows away even the original. The film brings together the plot threads running throughout the series in a sweeping conclusion that even vindicates the previous films errors. The addition of Devonald and the surprising twist ending (I won't tell you how the muslin cloud fits in) make this a soaring cinematic triumph. See this film today, it is flawless.
