Trivia

The film was intended to be the first of a new trilogy, but these plans were dropped after the poor critical and commercial performance of "The Source." See more »

Goofs

When Duncan fights the Guardian near the end of the film, his wife Anna is standing in the "Source," at the top of a set of stairs at one end of the pit. After the Guardian stabs Duncan, he is standing between the two of them, with Duncan and Anna at opposite ends of the pit. Watch the closeup of Duncan just before the Guardian begins to spin a tornado by waving his sword; you can clearly see Anna standing at the top of the stairs behind him, even though she's supposed to be behind the Guardian.

Sad, just sad...
27 July 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

What went right with the Highlander TV series starring Adrian Paul? First it was the main protagonist that really got into the role of the highlander, second it was the fact it it had very good swordplay and martial arts action and third it was those well done flashbacks into history, that showed many different time-lines and presented conflicts that lasted for centuries...

So, what is wrong with this movie? All the things stated above are missing...Yes we have Duncan , Mythos and Dawson but the script is really poor, the main villain is ridiculous , there are no flashbacks no swordplay whatsoever. All we get is a clown jumping around talking gibberish (the so-called guardian) and a crappy story about the "legendary" source.

The direction tries to seem cool but it ends up rather boring, and the acting is poor. Of course I wasn't expecting any great acting or imaginative direction but at least I was expecting some believable special effects...I didn't get those either the SFX are bad and uninventive. Obviously the movie hasn't got a big budget but it would have been adequate if it was used properly and with a story that didn't involve guardians with superpowers and other cosmic forces.

In the end it just feels sad that the Highlander franchise probably ends with such a bad movie. It's even worse than "Endgame" and that is really an achievement. Adrian Paul isn't much of an actor but give him a Katana and let him do his martial stuff and he'll work some magic. Unfortunately in this movie he does nothing of the above so in the and we get nothing , not even a good action scene...
