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
In the theatrical version of the film, Methos refers to the Sanctuary as Holy Ground. Many fans were upset that Kell killed Immortals on Holy Ground with no consequences, So all references to the Sanctuary as Holy Ground were deleted from the DVD version of the movie. See more »
In the flashback that begins "Kildare, Ireland 1712" a fuss is made over the rogues exacting a toll on Kate's carriage "by order of the King". While Connor, Duncan and even Kate's party are aware that the "King's decree" is a fake, it seems strange that no one mentions the most obvious proof of this: the reigning monarch in 1712 was Queen Anne.

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.
