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
In the theatrical version of the film, Methos refers to the Sanctuary as Holy Ground. Many fans were upset that Kell killed Immortals on Holy Ground with no consequences, So all references to the Sanctuary as Holy Ground were deleted from the DVD version of the movie. See more »

This is probably the best script ever written for a Highlander movie. Adrian Paul is the perfect fit for the Highlander role. He is manly (a quality that we haven't seen in a Hollywood actor for a looong time), and this whole movie is about a strong man.
Well... two men actually, him and Christopher Lambert. Lambert's presence throws a distinct spice in the movie, since he is the original Highlander.
But the man that make this movie worth seeing is Bruce Payne. He actually took the silly role of the bad guy and transformed it to the center of the movie. I know that he has not been seen in any good movies, but that is a shame. Even if you do not like this movie you will probably like his performance. His character really hates the Highlander and you can actually feel that 50ft. away from the screen.
I should also mention Donnie Yen who plays one of the bad guys and is the fight choreographer in this movie. People who like Jet Li, will surely like this man (probably because he has been Li's choreographer in a lot of movies).
If you like the Highlander saga, or a good action film, watch this one and you won't be disappointed.
