Highlander 3: The Final Dimension was a very valiant theatrical effort. It tried very hard to re-capture many of the touchstones that made the first movie the cult phenomenon that it remains to this day. It even succeeded in creating some interesting extensions to the established canon.
It does have some very strong and signature HIGHLANDER moments, but in our opinion, it’s the overall connective tissue that really strains the Highlander audience’s ability to reconcile this as nothing more than trying TOO HARD to redirect the franchise from what was the de-railing years before in Highlander 2 - the theatrical edition.
Join Kevin and Norm as they rediscover Highlander 3: The Final Dimension and delve deeply into the subject matter of the film. From the perspective of a fresh re-watch, Kevin and Norm discover how certain parts of the film really work and propel the lore forward, moments of the film that were deliberately created to disavow Highlander 2: The Quickening, how certain signature moments were truly a blatant rip-off of 1986 and even raise a few very important canonical issues that challenge the overall canon of Highlander - specifically the rule of Holy Ground.
Oh and yes...if there is one thing that is consistent about Highlander 1 through 3...it's that iron pipes make all the difference in surviving the game!
