Highlander: The Final Dimension | 1995 | PG-13 | - 4.6.3

Many swordfights are waged between Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Lambert has a tryst in the hay (off-camera). The woman is shown in one of those medieval many-layered undergarments. Another sex scene is very brief, but the woman's nude body is shown in silhouette. A kiss or two.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Several men are (mostly off-camera) crushed by a cave-in. Three or four people are impaled by swords -- not shown in a disturbingly graphic way. There are several sword fights, and other rough-and-tumble hand-to-hand battles. There is a talking severed head and several beheadings with swords, as well as one by guillotine. The latter is done off-camera. A man is sliced in half, but does not die. His halves are rejoined. A corpse, with his severed head stitched on, is shown briefly. An old man is struck several times.

LANGUAGE 3 - A couple of scatological terms are whispered.

MESSAGE - Good triumphs over evil.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
