| Original Score: D+
Highlander: Endgame looks sensational, moves like lightning. But its script (by Joel Soisson) makes no pretense about being logical or even comprehensible.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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 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.
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.
Thinking (logically or otherwise) about this movie is a waste of your brain cells.
We're left to endure this banquet of bad acting and worse dialogue with no relief save for your inner-heckler.
Even the sound effects get tiring: How many times can you hear swords being clanged, yanked from the Earth or sinking squishily into quivering flesh without getting bored?
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.
When Highlander sticks to the hand-to-hand battles and doesn't try to offer deeper thoughts on the life of an immortal, it works on its own terms.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Overall, there's just not enough story here.
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.
