Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
An energetic romp with dazzling special effects and a surfeit of sword-swinging action, Highlander: Endgame continues the epic saga of immortal Scottish warrior Connor MacLeod. The title character -- created in 1986's Highlander and portrayed for the fourth time by Christopher Lambert -- dominates the early reels but then yields center stage to dashing Adrian Paul, who plays Connor's younger clansman Duncan and is known best as the star of the successful Highlander television series. As the film opens, a bitter, disillusioned Connor retreats to the hidden sanctuary where battle-weary immortals seek seclusion when they tire of "the game" -- a flip abbreviation for hunting down and decapitating other immortals. The malevolent Kell (Bruce Payne), an archenemy of the MacLeods from the 16th century, lays waste to the sanctuary and then, to complete his revenge, hastens to the city in which the unsuspecting Duncan lives. Director Douglas Aarniokoski, working from a script that elaborates on concepts established by the TV show, brings a dynamic visual sensibility to the creatively staged clashes between Duncan and Kell, and he keeps things moving at a rapid clip to maintain the story's intensity. Replete with the quasi-mythical elements and warrior-ethos references that have made this screen franchise so popular, Highlander: Endgame will delight hard-core fans and series newcomers alike.
