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. Kell and Connor were friends once, and knew each other back when Connor was cast from Glenfinnan; he returned when news came that his mother was to be burned at the stake, and in the attempt to free her, Kell was killed by none other than Connor himself, and became an immortal, bitter with hate, and devoted to making Connor's life a living hell. In the present day, Connor's kinsman Duncan Macleod is attacked by Kell's posse, including ... Written by

You know a little about Buddhist monks. Some of them come to cherish life so much that to step on an insect or harm a blade of grass becomes a violation of their creed, so the place themsleves under an extreme form of protective custody, a sanctuary of sorts. Well, for an Immortal who comes to abhor the bloodshed, there's a similar solution - a way to be removed from the game forever. Though the price is unimaginably high, but you are, for all practical purposes, protected from the violence ...

The trailer for this movie had me excited; I love the original movie, and the sequels thus far were less than exceptional. I should have known better, though. Offhand, I can't think of any movie which is the 4th in a series and which is worth seeing. Highlander: Endgame is no exception. The plot is predictable and the acting, marginal. No effort is made to tie up any loose ends or explain why the story went from "there can be only one" to "there can be only one, except for all these other folks." The movie is uninspiring, full of moronic jokes and trite dialog, and worst of all: it's boring. The fight scenes, with one exception, are as formulaic and predictable as the plot. Sadly, though, they're the best part of the movie.
