The sword-wielding immortals are back--Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) from HIGHLANDER and Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) from television's HIGHLANDER series. In HIGHLANDER: ENDGAME, the two MacLeods do battle across time and space (from 15th century Scotland to present-day New York). Their foe is the evil, ultra-powerful Jacob Kell (Bruce Payne). Kell's immortal purpose is to make Connor's immortal life miserable--Kell was responsible for the death of Connor's mother and his wife, Heather. Kell is assisted by Kate (Lisa Barbuscia)--she seeks revenge on Duncan for giving her no choice about becoming an immortal. The VHS and DVD releases feature an extended new cut of the film.

HIGHLANDER: ENDGAME ignores the confusing events of HIGHLANDER II and III. Instead, it borrows from the original HIGHLANDER and the television series. From the original comes the idea of a more experienced immortal guiding one who is less experienced--originally Sean Connery helped Christopher Lambert; in ENDGAME, Lambert assists Adrian Paul. From the television series come Paul, and the Watchers, a secret group who chronicles the history of the immortals. HIGHLANDER: ENDGAME, with plunging ultrafast aerial shots swooping down over Scotland, is a breathless adventure in which Christopher Lambert and Adam Paul unsheathe their swords to do battle with evil.
Theatrical release: Sept. 1, 2000. Lachlan, one of the immortals who side with Jacob Kell, is played by the Canadian wrestler Edge. Edge's was born as Adam Copeland in Ontario in 1973. Jin Ye, another immortal on Kell's side, is played by Donnie Yen, the star--and occasionally directorof numerous Hong Kong action movies.
