David Abramowitz was called in to rework the original script by Stephen Kelvin Watkins after the producers had doubts about whether it would work. Abramowitz did a major overhaul of the script in an effort to bring it more in line with prior Highlander mythos, but the producers later changed their mind and largely re-instated Watkins' original script, keeping only a few of the modifications Abramowitz made. While the initial, leaked cut of the film credited Abramowitz as a co-writer, he was so displeased with the results that he took his name off of the final version. See more »
Some of the immortals continually say that they are on holy ground (and thus, cannot fight), even though the Guardian blatantly kills one of them on holy ground with to no consequence whatsoever. See more »
OK, I've watched & loved, Highlander the series.... I enjoyed it more than the movies themselves. Adrian Paul is a really talented actor & though I feel their acting was dead on... the script for this movie was HORRIBLE.
It was as awful as Highlander II... it just left me feeling like someone... wanted to revive the movie to make a few dollars. It was as if they threw this script together on a weekend & convinced some great actors this was a good idea.
Highlander creators... we'll act like this didn't happen if you promise not to produce another movie to finance a new house.
2 thumbs, way down.
Such a cool series, such a bad movie.
