In this fantasy adventure tale, Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and his kinsman Duncan (Adrian Paul) are "Immortals," members of a secret clan who can be killed only through decapitation. Connor and Duncan find themselves thrown into a tournament where Immortals both good and evil battle one another in a bid to become the last of their kind. Highlander: Endgame was the fourth feature film in the Highlander franchise, but its narrative draws from the storyline of the Highlander television series and ignores the events of the second and third films. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Highlander: Endgame looks sensational, moves like lightning. But its script (by Joel Soisson) makes no pretense about being logical or even comprehensible."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Thinking (logically or otherwise) about this movie is a waste of your brain cells."
‑ Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz
"There's little that anyone who doesn't catalog "Highlander" kills online could possibly comprehend about this mythology-heavy permutation while mocking its Casio-demo score, junior-high-play scene blocking, Skinemax sex and oafish action sequences."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"We have a sad attempt at action which fails miserably."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"The leading contender for worst film of the year."
‑ Travis Eddings, Film Threat
"Och, lads and lassies, on the souls of our shape-shifting Gaelic forebears, do not enter unwarned into that dark cave of confusion known as Highlander: Endgame."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Kinetic but borderline incoherent, hinging entirely on character relationships whose significance it can't possibly slow down long enough to explain for the newbies in the audience."
‑ Gemma Files, Film.com
"Frequent flashbacks, equal parts soap opera and historical fashion show, explicate the complicated relationships between Kell, Faith and the MacLeods."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"...do not under any circumstances rent this if you've never seen the Highlander TV series."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Highlander: Endgame is truer to the original than the sequels, but it plays more like a television program than a theatrical release, which will matter little to the die-hard fans."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"It quickly goes astray with fight scenes laden with too many bullets, too many explosions, too many sparks, lightning bolts and weird lights -- and too many impalings."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Overall, there's just not enough story here."
‑ Vicky Edwards, Chicago Tribune
"This is the last one in this long dead franchise...unless they do something stupid."
‑ John Venable, Supercala.com
"Thanks to its motley collection of story elements, settings, and acting styles, leaving this film is like getting off an amusement park ride you never wanted on in the first place."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"It's fast, short, restlessly plotted and, at times, pure bananas."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Movieline
