Mario Van Peebles,
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

Kane has been locked up in a cave for centuries, yet he can speak modern English, make modern references, knows what a car is and how to drive one, knows what cigars are and many other things that he could not possibly have any knowledge of. See more »
In the US version of the movie, we see Kane use his sorcerer's powers to transport himself to New York. In the European version, we see Kane walk out of a shipyard, implying that he got to New York by stowing away on a ship. The implication being contradited by a visual distortion in the shipyard background. The 2005 US DVD re-issue uses the European version of the movie despite the claim on the cover of also being the "Director's Cut" and therefore removes much of Kane's supernatural powers seen in the original "Director's Cut" release. Which ofcourse is a mistake. See more »
A good revenge plot drives this third Highlander installment. An old enemy similar to the Kurgan of the first film, escapes an entombment after 400 years and begins a quest for the head of McLeod. Kane- the Sorceror -makes a great villain and blends into modern America easily with his tattoos and piercings. The film also boasts some Conan elements with Mako again playing a wizard named Nagano and there also some f/x similar to T-2 as the sorceror's power is made apparent. Debra Unger is also a plus as a smokin' leading lady who provides the best and sweatiest sex scene of the "Highlander" cycle. There are also some great locales used in the film. From snowy Japan to African deserts to the Scottish Highlands, the film features all three beautifully. McLeod also has an adopted son and is hounded by a new NYC detective who is wise to his immortal habits. But through it all, he keeps his cool demeanor. However, the soundtrack leaves much to be desired. 7/10. Check out the DVD!
