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?
