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.

Frequent flashbacks, equal parts soap opera and historical fashion show, explicate the complicated relationships between Kell, Faith and the MacLeods.

This is the last one in this long dead franchise...unless they do something stupid.

We have a sad attempt at action which fails miserably.

...do not under any circumstances rent this if you've never seen the Highlander TV series.

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.

The leading contender for worst film of the year.

Highlander: Endgame looks sensational, moves like lightning. But its script (by Joel Soisson) makes no pretense about being logical or even comprehensible.

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.

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.

It's fast, short, restlessly plotted and, at times, pure bananas.

The special effects are cheap and not at all impressive. For a series that relies heavily on sword fighting, it too is surprisingly second-rate.

Judging by what writer Joel Soisson has come up with here, the franchise is already dead in the water.

If you're a fan, there could be something here to keep you involved and maybe leave you satisfied. But for newcomers, it's an uphill battle to make sense of it all and just about impossible to care.

Perhaps Highlander: Endgame may emerge as a cult movie -- one of those movies that is so bad, it's good. But for it to register in that way, you probably have to see it more than once. Which is a risk.

The sort of movie that's best seen late at night on TV in the company of some inebriated friends with smart mouths.

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.

We're left to endure this banquet of bad acting and worse dialogue with no relief save for your inner-heckler.

Thinking (logically or otherwise) about this movie is a waste of your brain cells.

Its story is so incompetently constructed that the long lulls between nonsensical action scenes make you wonder if it was written by a prepubescent fan.
