Christopher Lambert

This may be the third Highlander movie, but it, too, fails to answer what would seem to be the most obvious question for this action adventure series: How come Lambert, the films' Scottish hero, speaks with a French accent? Other than this petit problem, there's naught else to dwell on while watching this murky mess.

Once again, Lambert, as lugubrious as ever, is cast as the Highlander, a Scotsman with immortal powers and fancy fencing skills. Here he chases across centuries and continents while battling a bad guy (Mario Van Peebles) whose two most distinguishing characteristics are a hairdo that appears to have been inspired by Lily Munster, and the ability to morph, a special effect that the movie overuses. (PG-13)
