4.0 out of 5 stars A film worthy of carrying on the Highlander saga, 3 Sep 2002
This review is from: Highlander: Endgame [VHS] (VHS Tape)
After having watched Highlander 2 and 3, I just wasn't sure how Endgame would turn out as a sequel. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Endgame follows (in sorts) from the first film and ties in some existing storylines.
The acting is superb with some great performances from Lambert, Paul and Donnie Yen. The camerawork is also very cleverly worked as are the special effects. It is obvious that a lot of time was spent on producing this film.
The reason for this film is to bring to an end Christopher Lambert's reign as the Highlander, and pave the way for Adrian Paul to carry the torch. As with the first film we see the timeline flicking from present day to previous chapters in the life of Connor and Duncan McLeod. The film shows us how Duncan was found by Connor, and also explains how people 'become' immortal. This useful as the film does explain one or two loose-ends from the original.
Unfortunately, I think that a lot of the romance of the first film has gone, with the current directors preferring instead to make the film more action based and a lot 'darker' than the original. The film, however, is still great and a definate must see.
