David Abramowitz was called in to rework the original script by Stephen Kelvin Watkins after the producers had doubts about whether it would work. Abramowitz did a major overhaul of the script in an effort to bring it more in line with prior Highlander mythos, but the producers later changed their mind and largely re-instated Watkins' original script, keeping only a few of the modifications Abramowitz made. While the initial, leaked cut of the film credited Abramowitz as a co-writer, he was so displeased with the results that he took his name off of the final version. See more »
The Elder says that as the immortals get closer to the Source, they will grow weaker and lose their immortality. However, when Duncan reaches the Source, he suddenly gains super-speed. This is even dumber because the Guardian flat-out states that the Source is filling him with energy. See more »
i gained a copy of this months back and have to say that they did something wrong with this film. There is nothing special about it, its seems half ass way of producing it with the effects and location, gives the feeling they had £20 to play with and they seemed to have gained £19.99 back in change.
the effects of the head slicing is better and i was surprised it happened, but from that the special effects are half ass , the story line is boring and tiring , there is not one single section of the story or visual that makes you actually want to stay in the cinema to watch the film, it simply gives you the feeling of when you were watching a bad b movie in the 80's where the budget was extremely low and with no talent behind the camera.
considering AP took over production near the end f the TV series i was strongly expecting lots more from this.... Has he lost his touch has producing become to much of a stressing situation. Hell the team and even him don't seem to be bothered with doing the production notes and b lo g on their own official site, so from that are we to take it they are re doing the whole thing to actually drill in some intelligent action with a spot of special effects and dash of story line that will blow our socks off, or should we take it that they simply have given up and are now hoping they can get away wit the slow progress of a crappiest produced film of the 21st century and I've now just read that its in fact going straight to sci-fi channel, How pathetic is that Im highly saddened by this because this was going to be the ultimate film for me to watch, I've been a highlander series fan for years and just gained the box set, so to know that they have simply destroyed and made a film worse than end game is soul destroying.
