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.'
January 1, 2000
They crammed a lot of bad, bad stuff into such a short flick.

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.
January 1, 2000
The fourth sequel to a film designed to stand alone... In the end, there should have been only one.

After this installment, I pray that this the End.

You know a sequel serves no other purpose than to make money when it has no respect for the rules and history it has set up for itself.

January 1, 2000
A slow-moving piece of garbage with choppy fight sequences and bad acting.
January 1, 2000
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!

Why interrupt the blissful endorphin rush of grisly sword/martial arts/automatic weapon melees with a lot of clumsy exposition on matters that hold subzero interest for 99.9% of the audience?

January 1, 2000
Overall, there's just not enough story here.
January 1, 2000
As is the case with most sequels, the quality is much lower than the original.

January 1, 2000
The action sequences are decent, but the effects end up so god-awful towards the end ... that all you can do is cringe.

January 1, 2000
A fitting coda for a franchise that respects its audience with creative flights of fancy.
January 1, 2000
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?

January 1, 2000
This film feels like a torturously overlong TV episode, and it takes itself so seriously that it has none of the camp value of the original film or the show's sword 'n' sorcery competition.

January 1, 2000
Too many time trips detract from the present, and their comic shenanigans border on embarrassing.

A complete and utter mess. Disjointed, incoherent, boring, corny, filled with bad dialogue ... and that's just the first thirty minutes!

Adrian Paul carries the burden here, making Endgame feel like an extended episode of the popular television show.
January 1, 2000
It's a cut above Highlander II and III, though that's sort of like saying rotting cheese tastes better than raw sewage.
January 1, 2000
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.
