In a future, private underground prison/Fortress, the inmates are computer controlled with CCTV, dream readers and devices that can cause pain or death. John and his illegally pregnant wife are inside but want to escape before birth.
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.

[his voice coming through Duncan]
Jacob Kell... time for redemption. The game isn't over yet.
[his face quickly, almost ghost-like, appears over Duncan's - Kell looks disturbed]

[Connor's face once again briefly flashes in front of Duncan's]
In the end...
[returning to his own voice]
There can be... only one.
[takes Kell's head]
And you're not it.

Cracker Bob has more of an entrance. We see him crash into the loft on his motorcycle, swing his bat, and say, "Did anyone order a club sandwich?" Duncan mocks Bob's outfit, and Bob complains to Faith. See more »
this movie was one of the better tries at a highlander sequel, which it is not... For those of you introduced to highlander with the series the movie may be quite good, but if you are a fan of the original film this movie will disappoint you. take note that this is highlander: Endgame not Highlander IV or 4 the numeral was cleverly omitted for obvious reasons...here all things go... Personally I do not think the film merrits a theatrical release I think that a mini-series would of been a better format providing more time and better care of the characters... PS I saw the so called New Cut which runs Apprx. 1hr 32 min from the time the title is seen to when the credits start rolling... This is not the end?
