When Connor MacLeod sees his old friend Rachel die in an explosion, he's had it with his immortal life and the endless pain it brings him and those he loves. He locks himself inside the Sanctuary, a Watcher-organized retreat stationed on holy ground, where immortals who are tired of the game can go to forever escape it, as well as to ensure that The Prize never falls into the wrong hands. But when an old enemy, Jacob Kell, and his posse of assassins attack the Sanctuary and kill everyone there but Connor, he is forced out into the open and into battle. Kell and Connor were friends once, and knew each other back when Connor was cast from Glenfinnan; he returned when news came that his mother was to be burned at the stake, and in the attempt to free her, Kell was killed by none other than Connor himself, and became an immortal, bitter with hate, and devoted to making Connor's life a living hell. In the present day, Connor's kinsman Duncan MacLeod is attacked by Kell's posse, including ...Written by
During Connor and Duncan's fight with the "Tax" thieves, one of the men, Lachlan, picks up a rock as a weapon. As the MacLeods go on the defensive, Duncan says to Lachlan "Looks like you've lost the edge, lad". It's a reference to Adam Copeland's WWE "stage" name, Edge. See more »
The scene with the changing cab is supposedly taking place in New York, but in one shot you can clearly see several cars that were never sold in the USA: a Mercedes Benz 208 van, some Dacias and a Fiat Tipo. See more »
You're missing the point, Kate. The difference between Connor and I is that as long as you're still alive, there's a chance that one day I might be forgiven. It may take years. Centuries even. But at least I can carry that hope inside me. That's one blessing of immortality; there's always tomorrow. Even for us.

All in all, I'd say this movie exceeded my expectations. Very well done. If I were to change anything, it would have been to add another 15-20 minutes to the length (JUST over 90 min) for the purpose of going a little more in-depth of some situations.
This didn't detract anything from the movie for me, but I can see how someone new to the Highlander stories might have been at a slight loss. If I were not previously familiar with the Highlander movies and series, I probably would have rated it a 7 or 8...because it IS a good story and it was PACKED with action. The fight scenes were really great and there was one scene in particular which was, in my opinion, VERY well done. I won't spoil it, other than to say it really brought to light the relationship of the 2 characters involved....But since I've followed the movies and the series since the beginning, all was clear by the end. I thought this movie was second only to the original movie that started it all.
They say "There can be only one"....I'm hoping for AT LEAST one more.
