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.

The main bulk of filming took place in Romania, at Miramax's behest. Producers William Panzer and Peter Davis were initially opposed to this move. See more »
In the last fight scene between Kell and Duncan, the location of their fight jumps from the 1st floor of the factory to on top of a catwalk. After they jump off the catwalk, the same "1st floor fight scene" is used again. See more »
This was a well done movie, blending the series and the original Highlander very well. The villain was intense, the tie in with the other movies was great. Incorporating the characters from the original highlander movies and the series worked brilliantly.
The love stories of both characters were well done, the blend of music and photography lent a great emotional context to those scenes. The humor displayed by both characters added a wonderful dimension, and after seeing the rough cut on the DVD, and the finished ending of the movie, I am impressed with the producers choice of ending.
As a fan of both the series and the original movie, I was very emotionally moved by this movie.
