I love Highlander and so, was anxious to see Endgame. It was badly edited and I was disappointed the first time I saw it. But, Adrian Paul did a magnificent job as Duncan MacLeod. He was the best thing in the movie. Unfortunately, Christopher Lambert is starting to look his age, and so, as sad as the fans find the loss of "Connor" it was time for him to pass the flame on to Duncan.
Paul is a strong actor and plays the physical role with grace and intensity. After I saw the movie a second time, I started to like it! And now, I overlook the "hack job" on the editing of the movie and have come to appreciate it for what it has offered...a moving "death scene" between Duncan and Connor, and some superb action.
