Goofs

How did this world descend into chaos in what couldn't possibly be more than a 5-year time difference between this movie and the previous one? Joe Dawson is the same age as he is in the Highlander TV series, so there is no way takes place a long way into the future. See more »

Quotes

Duncan MacLeod: Go to hell!
Methos: So this is the new MacLeod? A man who turns his back on the memory of his friend, his clan? The quiter?
Duncan MacLeod: [Duncan punches Methos, draws Reggie's sword] Get up!
Cardinal Giovanni: This is Holy Ground!
Duncan MacLeod: I don't care!
Reggie Weller: [restraining Anna] No. This is what we do.

Alternate Versions

Several cuts of the film existed prior to the US DVD release. The earliest version released officially in Russia (the "Moscow Cut") is the longest (in English with Russian subtitles), including many many scenes that were trimmed or re-scored for the US DVD release. A second cut released on Dutch DVD is much closer to the US cut. A third version exists that was shown on the Sci Fi Channel before the US DVD release, which had the profanity censored. See more »

What the hell happened
15 August 2007 | by mathewlisettSee all my reviews

i gained a copy of this months back and have to say that they did something wrong with this film. There is nothing special about it, its seems half ass way of producing it with the effects and location, gives the feeling they had £20 to play with and they seemed to have gained £19.99 back in change.

the effects of the head slicing is better and i was surprised it happened, but from that the special effects are half ass , the story line is boring and tiring , there is not one single section of the story or visual that makes you actually want to stay in the cinema to watch the film, it simply gives you the feeling of when you were watching a bad b movie in the 80's where the budget was extremely low and with no talent behind the camera.

considering AP took over production near the end f the TV series i was strongly expecting lots more from this.... Has he lost his touch has producing become to much of a stressing situation. Hell the team and even him don't seem to be bothered with doing the production notes and b lo g on their own official site, so from that are we to take it they are re doing the whole thing to actually drill in some intelligent action with a spot of special effects and dash of story line that will blow our socks off, or should we take it that they simply have given up and are now hoping they can get away wit the slow progress of a crappiest produced film of the 21st century and I've now just read that its in fact going straight to sci-fi channel, How pathetic is that Im highly saddened by this because this was going to be the ultimate film for me to watch, I've been a highlander series fan for years and just gained the box set, so to know that they have simply destroyed and made a film worse than end game is soul destroying.
