When Connor MacLeod sees his old friend Rachel die in an explosion, he's had it with his immortal life and the endless pain it brings him and those he loves. He locks himself inside the Sanctuary, a Watcher-organized retreat stationed on holy ground, where immortals who are tired of the game can go to forever escape it, as well as to ensure that The Prize never falls into the wrong hands. But when an old enemy, Jacob Kell, and his posse of assassins attack the Sanctuary and kill everyone there but Connor, he is forced out into the open and into battle.

Highlander: Endgame Reviews

  • Finally a sequel

    carlos_b84 2005-08-17

    After the "Alien Experience" and the "Remake Sequel", "Highlander" producers decided to add two and two and get someone to write a marvellous script. They went on with the mathematics, and got together Christopher Lambert and Adrian Paul. The result is the long-expected good sequel to the first "Highlander", set after "The Series" ended. Tired of the endless fights, Connor MacLeod enters the Sanctuary, a place where immortals can rest forever under the guard of the Watchers. However, an old foe of Connor releases him after killing all the other immortals in that place. Not pleased with this, this foe and his posse pays a visit to Duncan MacLeod, who gets away and looks for his clansman. Both MacLeods have sins to purge, and the time has come to do that. Christopher Lambert, though intended to have a supportive role like Sean Connery in the original film, robs the movie. Though his Connor is hardly the same bad ass of the other films, it's by far the best performance in the film. Adrian Paul manages to lead the film well, like in the TV series. Bruce Payne, playing the embittered Jacob Kell, provides a fine interpretation that is however in the line of the other "Highlander" villains. Lisa Barbuscia as Kate MacLeod is somewhat fine, but I'm inclined to believe the only reason "Fishlips" got cast is her willingness to show her breasts. The character of the film is indeed Jin Ke, played by Donnie Yen. However brief his presence on screen may be, he manages to give a very good impression, as well as some action. Another two characters worth mentioning are Rachel (the late Sheila Gish) and Heather (Beatie Edney), who appear again in a "Highlander" film. Briefly, but it's something. Why don't I give it a 10? First, the first film (which indeed deserves a 10) is superior to this one. Secondly, the editing of the film is weak. It's not the one of "Highlander II: The Quickening" but this one has some big flaws. In any case, "Highlander Endgame" is a great film, with more action and entertainment than the other sequels, and it's a great choice even for non fans. Seven!

  • Good movie with "excellent" bits here and there...

    cernex 2003-05-25

    Contains spoiler Well, frankly I have never been a fan of the Highlander franchise, but if I had been one, this movie would probably be one of the best Highlander movies around. Actually, I have only see the second one (with Michael Ironside and Sean Connery, if I remember correctly) and in comparation, Endgame is somewhat better. Even though I prefer the post-apocaliptic look of H:II, Endgame provides us with better special effect (obvius), a lot-more digestible plot and some good acting. Even though I don't like the (SPOILER) fact that Connor died (END OF SPOILER) I think it was just to finally end with the Highlander franchise. Excellent battles, good plot, and good acting (somewhat weird cast, but ok) is all I need for a movie, and Chistopher Lambert's acting is superb. A good end to the Highlander series. B+

  • A final(?) piece of a brilliant puzzle.

    bdparsons 2000-09-01

    The last installment of the Highlander movie series is a brilliant blend of the original movie and the popular television characters. The story line is weaved through past history (as Highlander fans have come to expect) and picks up where the television series ended. It still stands alone as a movie in itself, though I will admit it may be hard for a non-highlander fan to grasp all of the concepts that are thrown at them. All in all, Davis/Panzer have once again given credit to this wonderful science fiction series by watching the details of the character's pasts and still creating unknown events in their lives. This is the beauty of this series, just when you think you know the character something pops up from their past. This will be an emotional movie for diehard Highlander fans, just as the "To Be/Not to Be" t.v. finale was. In my opinion, even though this is dubbed as the final act of this series, there is still one minor issue that still remains....there can be only be one!

  • Very Underrated, Brilliant Performance.

    Gerrit-KvdH 2005-10-27

    Fantastic End to the Game Played, By Jakob Kell and Connor and Duncan MacLeod. The Fierce Hatred Between the two Past Frends (Connor and Jakob)Reaches an Epic Climax in witch Connor and Duncan must Become "One", to defeat Jakob. Lisa Barbuscia also had her part but wasn't that Impressive at all. Usually i Highlight The Performance Of A Beautiful Women, But the fact is She was Just another One Of The Cast. She Looked Pretty but that was all. Jakob Kell betrayed his Best Friend Connor MacLeod. And then When Connor Tryed To Save his Mother Helped, The People ho were Trying to Burn her. Connor then Killed Both Jakob as his Priest Father. And an Infuriated Jakob Swore Revenge. Connor Knew That he was Inmortal. But also knew that a simple Chop of His Head would take that away. His Great Brother Duncan, fought in The Great War. Then Connor Picked him Up and Explained him about his Immortality. The Two Brothers Began Collecting Immortal Kills and were both about 360 Something of Confirmed Immortal Kills. But Connor also Knew that Jakob Kell was Getting Stronger And Stronger with a Total Over the 620 Confirmed Immortal Kills. Kell's Ultimate Goal was to get revenge On Connor By Killing Everone Ho meant Something to Connor, and then to complete his Revenge by Killing Connor as They would Be Only Ones Left To Make the Humiliation even Worse. In the end He would Be Stopped by the Brotherhood Double Of Duncan and Connor ho became One. Overall the Scottish Passion was Great and The Mix in Styles When People Fought Showed Great Strengh in Depfh. Thats why it is a Mystery to me why this Movie is So Harshly Underrated. It was a Great Movie. And Truly End Game. My Score : 10 - Groeten Gerrit

  • the movie that separated highlander fans

    gianpa 2001-02-28

    this movie was one of the better tries at a highlander sequel, which it is not... For those of you introduced to highlander with the series the movie may be quite good, but if you are a fan of the original film this movie will disappoint you. take note that this is highlander: Endgame not Highlander IV or 4 the numeral was cleverly omitted for obvious reasons...here all things go... Personally I do not think the film merrits a theatrical release I think that a mini-series would of been a better format providing more time and better care of the characters... PS I saw the so called New Cut which runs Apprx. 1hr 32 min from the time the title is seen to when the credits start rolling... This is not the end?
