I just had to pick a few of the favorite quotes from this review. Most of the reviews I’ve read recently have been profanity-laced, but all share the same emotion.
They’ve taken something that was once rousing and inventive and now have officially driven it right into the ground. … effects that are anything but special, and a bulky villain character that literally zips around the movie like a dime store version of the Flash and spits out Jim Carrey-like dialogue more suited for “Ace Ventura 3” (I know the Kurgan, and the Guardian is no Kurgan), it’s a miracle that Paul can even stand in the same frame with this malarkey without getting nauseous. … Stripped of all sense of sword-wielding regality and epic posturing of emotions, “The Source” is nothing less than a parody of what has come before. If you’ve seen the previous sequels, you already know that’s saying something. There is some relief that this franchise will finally be put out of its misery, because nobody in their right mind would try to keep this series going after watching just how boneheaded “Highlander: The Source” is.
If this movie were the inevitable conclusion to the series, it would have been better for the series not to have existed. It sucked every last remaining bit of fun out of the Highlander series. I’m not even sure I can enjoy reading the comic anymore.
