Review this movie
Dec 14, 2012This review contains spoilers. While there are things about this movie that i like the bad definetly outweighs the good here. The plot takes for ever to get going, the romance is forced in, allot of the characters seem pointless and the appearences of Joe and Methos were so brief it felt like they should have been uncredited cameos and the acting on (almost) all fronts was bad. However the fight scenes were very well done, the death of Connor was treated very well and no matter what people think think about Bruce Payne he made a damn good villain (not as good as Clancy Brown as the Kurgan but still...) So yeah it was bad but there were still some good things about it.… Collapse

There is some fan service in the beginning that makes you believe they've finally gotten a sequel right, but then they rewrite the whole story so that Connor doesn't win the prize. I did find the incorporation of concepts from the show to be a bonus.
