Well, SciFi did it again, they turned a good show into a trashy movie.

 

I watched about ten minutes of “Highlander: The Source,” before I turned the channel.

 

SciFi, do me a favor… please do not produce any more sci-fi projects. Buy the rights to stuff written and produced by real creative people and show that instead.

You were right to change the channel Mac. I watched the whole painful thing. At the end I was thinking 'They all fought for that?? That was it?' No real follow up, nothing. And don't get me started on the effects.

Crumb!  I TOTALLY forgot that this was going to be on.  I knew that I wasn't going to be home and had wanted to set the VCR so that I could see it.  I guess I should be glad that I didn't waste the tape, huh?

Shame.... I always LOVED the Highlander.  Well, until it got wierd at the end and they killed of Richie.  I HATED that and thought that it was the DUMBEST thing that they ever could have done.

....well, until this movie, apparently

It was fate that you forgot to tape it. I only watched because I am a die hard Highlander fan and had hopes it would get better. No joy there. If you thought killing off Ritchie was bad then you haven't seen anything.
Methos was dark and for the most part a self-serving prat. Not the wary but light-hearted Methos I loved.
I won't bore or spoil you with the rest.

Okay, now I am REALLY glad that I missed it.  Methos was my favorite. WOW did I have a crush on Peter Wingfield!  If he was in it and not the same character I loved, it is better that I didn't see it.

It appears as though you folks aren't the only ones that REALLY didn't like this movie.  I stoped over at IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0299981/
and those comments are even harsher than yours.

"All of the acting is bad in the film, the sfx are bad, the editing and camera work are bad and the script was really bad. There really is nothing good about this film including the main plot point of the source that is any good."

"there is NOTHING about this movie, absolutely nothing, worth watching NOTHING

"if you liked the movie, if you liked the series, do yourself a HUGE favor, do NOT WATCH this:

1) the music is terrible (cheap at best)

2) the writing is so amazingly bad

3) talking heads, rather than acting

4) stilted acting, wooden heads reading lines from cue cards

5) worthless directing

6) INANE dialog

7) the ending? insipid

8) special effects? why bother, NOTHING could save this movie"

"Well, there have been several comments about how bad this is so I won't repeat them. They're all too true."

"This director/editor team is about as toxic as Steven Tyler and Joe Perry in a 1978 hotel room loaded with five 8-balls a piece and a one hooker between the two of them."

"First of all, the film work was real crap. Every scene looks like they just threw a different colored filter over the camera lens. Either green or sepia or red. Looks like the movie was shot in black and white and colorized later."

"please don't watch this movie, why you ask?, because you are not immortals and life is to precious to spend it watching this flick"

"I plopped down in front of the TV with my friend and thought "How bad can it be?"  The answer came about five minutes into the movie...pretty damn bad! "

Some of the comments are humorous, though.
