Trivia

This is the first live-action "Highlander" film in which the villain's name does not begin with the letter K. In Highlander (1986), Highlander II: The Quickening (1991), Highlander: The Final Dimension (1994), and Highlander: Endgame (2000), the villains were named Kurgan, Katana, Kane, and Kell, respectively. (The animated film Highlander: The Search for Vengeance (2007) also featured a villain whose name does not begin with the letter K, but it was produced after "Highlander: The Source," despite being released first.)

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.

The worst in the franchise
18 September 2007 | by (Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

If you're a true Highlander fan, even a desperate one, steer clear of this movie. It is a disaster. The worst movie I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a lot of bad ones. Perhaps it's just because I love the original Highlander so much, that I am so angry. But my review is as follows: -The story is confusing, more supernatural than ever -The acting is horrible, particularly on Adrian's part. I could stand him in Endgame but he seems to be sleepwalking throughout this so-called sequel.

Need I go on? Let's just say Highlander 2 is a masterpiece compared to this... exactly.
