The third Highlander movie takes place at 1994, which means it's a prequel of the second film. After the death of his beloved wife Heather some centuries ago, Connor MacLeod left the highlands of Scotland and wandered around the world. Finally, he got to Japan, where he met the famous sorcerer Nakano, who was an Immortal too. Soon, they became friends, and Nakano taught Conor some tricks. But one day, an old enemy, Kane, came to Japan willing to find Nakano's cave and kill him. Although he succeeded, after cutting Nakano's head the mountain collapsed and Kane was trapped. Now, centuries after, an excavation reveals Nakano's cave... Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos <makzax@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?


Mako plays a similar role to the role he played in Conan the Barbarian (1982) and Conan the Destroyer (1984). See more »


Connor clearly says that he won the Prize, as he did in the end of the first movie. However, he never behaves like someone more powerful than an average Immortal, so either he only thought he won it, or the Prize wasn't worth all the trouble. See more »


Connor MacLeod: Where is Kane?
Warrior #1: Don't worry about him. Worry about me.

The second is the love scene between Conner and the reporter Alex, which contains more explicit footage. Both scenes are reported to be present in European theatrical prints. See more »

Watch them out of sequence......
4 August 2002 | by TheoriginaltruebritSee all my reviews

My husband and I have discovered that the only way to watch the three movies that will make sense is to watch them out of sequence. Highlander, Highlander III and THEN Highlander II. If you watch them any other way then they do not make sense whatsoever..., and as other people have said Highlander III pretends that Highlander II never happened. However if you watch them in the sequence suggested above it all makes sense! I have no clue (other than money) why anyone would put such a disjointed sequel (II) into the mix but they did, but by messing with their minds and following the above sequence it actually makes a nice trilogy. (We shall forget the IIII because that was just a way to make money out of the TV show)......
