It ranks somewhere alongside -- well, sitting through Star Trek Generations again.
There is ... something about [the immortals] getting a special charge when they actually manage to kill each other. Personally, I would have gotten a really big charge if I could have killed them all.
| Original Score: 3/10
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.
A dreadful, time-traveling, almost incomprehensible [film].
| Original Score: 2/10
It's a cut above Highlander II and III, though that's sort of like saying rotting cheese tastes better than raw sewage.
Adrian Paul carries the burden here, making Endgame feel like an extended episode of the popular television show.
A complete and utter mess. Disjointed, incoherent, boring, corny, filled with bad dialogue ... and that's just the first thirty minutes!
They crammed a lot of bad, bad stuff into such a short flick.
Just in case this dog's breakfast of an action mess ... has some appeal to the adolescent generation, we forced a 10-year-old to attend Highlander: Endgame with us. His take: 'This movie sucks.'
The same pointless exercise in violence and pseudo-mystical twaddle that the whole series has represented since 1986.
| Original Score: D-
The bottom line is that Highlander: Endgame should be a lot more fun than it is.
The dialogue is cheesy, and the story's decapitated long before any character's noggin goes flyin'.
Kate complains about being an immortal, grousing about 'the endless, numbing sameness of it all.' I know how she feels.
| Original Score: D
A fitting coda for a franchise that respects its audience with creative flights of fancy.
People going to see this movie without any knowledge of the Highlander TV series or the original film will be lost. Fans, on the other hand, will love it!
| Original Score: 3/4
Personally, I enjoyed it about the way I enjoyed the Mortal Kombat movies, meaning that its genuine fun and its unintentionally ridiculous moments are roughly in balance.
Hyperkinetic yet boring, with sloppy direction and editing masking some awful, stilted dialogue and wooden/hammy acting, the film will probably only appeal to diehard fans of the series or TV show.
The fourth sequel to a film designed to stand alone... In the end, there should have been only one.
| Original Score: F
After this installment, I pray that this the End.
| Original Score: 1/5
Too many time trips detract from the present, and their comic shenanigans border on embarrassing.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
