Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An unbelievably trashy meltdown of the tartan warrior franchise."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"As for Van Peebles, he's quite the ridiculous sight and sound."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"This has got to be the worst franchise every created."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"One of those uninspired films that gave sequels such a bad name."
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"If it wasn't set eight years later, no one would never know the difference (and of course, never mind the ultra-cheesy, low-budget special effects!)."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Lambert is as uncharismatic as ever, while Van Peebles is as frightening as a wrestler in mock angry mood, and just as ridiculous."
‑ , Time Out
"Mostly the film morphs into a block of dullness."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"There should have been only one!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"They definitely don't come any worse than this."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"The most illogical of the trilogy."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"How could an action-adventure film that cost $34 million, most of which clearly went into pyrotechnics, computerized special effects and scenic locations, end up looking cheap, silly and lifeless?"
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Lame, but in a good way."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"How tough could it be to make a "Highlander" that makes sense?"
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"What it can't copy is the first movie's sense of surprise: we're never jolted by any of the sword fights here as we were with the original's broadsword battle in a carpark."
‑ , BBC.com
"This is the end of the Highlander series, they say. Not an eon too soon."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
