The Elder says that as the immortals get closer to the Source, they will grow weaker and lose their immortality. However, when Duncan reaches the Source, he suddenly gains super-speed. This is even dumber because the Guardian flat-out states that the Source is filling him with energy. See more »


Methos: You trust me?
Duncan MacLeod: You'll do.

Terrible. I feel sorry for Adrian
15 September 2007 | by Scoval71See all my reviews

The bewigged, face lifted, slimmer and worked out, but, still so very handsome, Adrian Paul is back as the Highlander. This junk is horrible. Please, Adrian, the Highlander was great and superlative as a television series, but the Highlander movies (Endgame) and The Source fail, and fail miserably. Let them die. Do no more. I think he got the idea now from the reviews of The Source. This concoction was hard to watch. A murky, dark movie, and dark meaning everything looked as if it were shot in the middle of the night. Acting was awful---some weird plot to find the source--the origin--of the immortals. Adrian walks his way throughout the movie. He knew it was crap. He looks great with his new wig and face lift and slimmer than ever, but this is way beneath his talents. A ridiculous movie with so much screaming and yelling and fighting, it makes no sense. Takes place in some future world with trite sets and some maniac wearing a half helmet acting as a guardian, but to what, I have no clue. The movie has no purpose, no direction. It was awful.
