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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kate complains about being an immortal, grousing about 'the endless, numbing sameness of it all.' I know how she feels.

The dialogue is cheesy, and the story's decapitated long before any character's noggin goes flyin'.

The bottom line is that Highlander: Endgame should be a lot more fun than it is.

One Guy's Opinion

The same pointless exercise in violence and pseudo-mystical twaddle that the whole series has represented since 1986.
