In the last fight scene between Kell and Duncan, the location of their fight jumps from the 1st floor of the factory to on top of a catwalk. After they jump off the catwalk, the same "1st floor fight scene" is used again. See more »
Every life I touch ends brutally and for no reason. It's a curse that's followed me for centuries. I can't outrun it and I can't out live it.

All in all, I'd say this movie exceeded my expectations. Very well done. If I were to change anything, it would have been to add another 15-20 minutes to the length (JUST over 90 min) for the purpose of going a little more in-depth of some situations.
This didn't detract anything from the movie for me, but I can see how someone new to the Highlander stories might have been at a slight loss. If I were not previously familiar with the Highlander movies and series, I probably would have rated it a 7 or 8...because it IS a good story and it was PACKED with action. The fight scenes were really great and there was one scene in particular which was, in my opinion, VERY well done. I won't spoil it, other than to say it really brought to light the relationship of the 2 characters involved....But since I've followed the movies and the series since the beginning, all was clear by the end. I thought this movie was second only to the original movie that started it all.
They say "There can be only one"....I'm hoping for AT LEAST one more.
