In the post-apocalyptic medieval 27th century, Ramirez mentors young Quentin MacLeod who must seek pacified Immortals, gain their knowledge through a non-lethal form of Quickening, and free the land from the evil Immortal overlord Kortan.
A group of hotheaded street racers are on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, a man starts tracking, teasing and torturing them until the end of the road.
The world is falling into chaos. As he roams a crumbling city, Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander, remembers happier times before the love of his life left... Hopeless and alone, MacLeod finds his way to a band of immortal companions, including his mysterious friend Methos, and a mortal, Watcher Joe Dawson. Together this small group sets out on a quest to find the origin of the first Immortal and The Source of their immortality.Written by

The film was intended to be the first of a new trilogy, but these plans were dropped after the poor critical and commercial performance of "The Source." See more »
When Duncan fights the Guardian near the end of the film, his wife Anna is standing in the "Source," at the top of a set of stairs at one end of the pit. After the Guardian stabs Duncan, he is standing between the two of them, with Duncan and Anna at opposite ends of the pit. Watch the closeup of Duncan just before the Guardian begins to spin a tornado by waving his sword; you can clearly see Anna standing at the top of the stairs behind him, even though she's supposed to be behind the Guardian.

I loved the Highlander series. I loved the first Highlander movie. But holy crap, this movie was terrible.
It has the acting, effects and plot of a made-for-TV Sci Fi channel movie (oh wait...). Everything about the film stunk of terrible quality. It was actually kind of sad to see Paul and the Highlander franchise in general in so bad of a continuation. Nearly every character mailed it in and sleepwalked through their characters. The rest played so over-the-top that you want to hold your head in your hands and groan. And, once again, the Highlander writers find another half-assed reason to make another movie (the prize in the last movie? no no no, that wasn't the REAL prize, THIS is the real prize.).
If you're a Highlander fan, don't even watch this. It butchers that which you love.
