The "Wishmaster" series wears out its welcome with "Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled." The fourth part in the franchise, this film suffers from the generalized dullness that cursed the third film and has none of the fun, gory energy that bolstered the first two.
The souls-for-wishes-trading djinn is back, and, this time, he is in love. "Wishmaster 4" recycles the plots of the previous films, adding a semi-romantic subplot that makes thing at least somewhat interesting. There are also competing djinn with swords that give the film a touch of "Highlander." It is a mixed narrative bag that, unfortunately, comes up short.
The production value here is the most limited of the series, with special effects, performances, and the look of the film not amounting to much cinematic capital. It is all very subpar, but it makes the first two parts of the series look even better in comparison.
