Warlock ★★★

Bit of a beautiful surprise. It starts out like a fairly bland 80s TERMINATOR/HIGHLANDER variant and all of my experience tells me that it will go through the motions and whimper out into some generic third act, leaving my memory forever. Instead it pedals halfway and goes for broke - Julian Sands (bad guy) and Richard E. Grant (good guy) and even Lori Singer (comic relief) conquer their roles and keep their momentum, and all of the expository mumbo jumbo suddenly seems like perfectly legit McGuffins by the time we get to fire-vomit and cemetery showdowns.
