    Yeah Spoony… this was probably best as a one time deal. This review is extremely long and nitpicky… (Which isn’t itself a bad thing) Except for the lack of visual gags that I personally have grown to love from you. The one scene where the camera showed us the 2 of you for the “inside of me joke” I thought, ” huh… that was pretty lame to be the first visual gag of the review.”

    Damn it! Those sudden endings really rile me up. I thought the next video would be up tomorrow. I guess daylight saving time works differently for the U.S.

    I think a Wiseau joke was missing with all the man-butt.

    I’m going to guess that the visual jokes are limited, because the two of them probably were only together for a limited time at that gaming convention mentioned early on in the first part. That’s why the voice over commentary.

    HOLLY CRAP! I KNOW WHAT THAT IS! A FLASHBACK WITHIN A FLASHBACK! IT’S FLASHBACK INCEPTION!

    Seriously, they’re trying to share a collective flashback of a better movie. The place where the immortals go to “withdraw” themselves from the game? That was the Indian guys basement. And the boobs… Sorry, wife! And the wife chick I’m sure she’s part of Dunkan’s subconcious. Seriously! I’ve had subconcious projections of big boobed chicks come to my room late at night and I know about these types of stuff…

    We got Nolan by the balls! (not literally!)

    you migh not know this, but those bullet casings that slow-mo’ed out of that guys gun had no primers. there was no way they could have fired.

    for those who dont know how bullets operate, read on (the rest of you can stop reading now) here it is- you pull the trigger on the gun which releases the hammer. the hammer slams down on the firing pin in the gun, which then strikes a little round part of the bullet casing (or shell, if thats what you want to call it) called the primer. the firing pin breaks the seal on the primer which causes a teeny tiny explosion which then ignites the gun powder, pushing the bullet down the barrel and preferably into the chest of a drug dealer.

    this guys bullets had no primers at all, thats why there are big gaping holes on the back end of the shells.

        well, this is just such a blatant mistake, to do that you have to physically remove the primers with a special tool. its like they WANTED that mistake in there. but, then, this movie was made in hollywood (probably) and hollywood is in california, and california has the most draconic gun laws….

          if you buy empty casings at a store for the purpose pf making your own bullets they dont come with primers in them as that would be dangerous.

          im sure the prop guys just went to big r and bought a bag of empty casings thinking that would work well enough for the scene.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, i imagine that’s exactly how it went down. With them thinking they were clever by not making the mistake of showing blanks hitting the floor (blanks have crimped tips that unfurl, and can be very obvious on film).

            Honestly though it does bug me, i mean if it’s going to be a slow-mo set piece shot to show just how cool the bad guy is it really deserves to be done right. Just another example of the slipshod workmanship put into this film, I suppose.

    • Anonymous

      The worst part is that they aren’t even revolver cartridges. Instead they look to be 9mm cases, which wouldn’t work in a revolver as depicted since revolvers require rimmed cartridges to eject as shown. to compound the error they slowed this scene down to make it easier to tell how badly they fucked up.

      If you are going to have a slow-mo porn shot of falling shell casings go the extra mile and at least use the same caliber as the weapon is supposed to use.

      I completely agree. His terrible line delivery mixed with his incredibly annoying over acting just kills this entire review. I can’t wait until Spoony actually reviews Source by himself.

          I agree completely, he has a few good lines but the delivery falls flat and sometimes it feels like Spoony’s reeling him in or something.

            I didn’t think he was that bad, honestly. I mean, he’s not the best, and obviously not as good as Spoony, but I think you guys are just being unnecessarily hard on him.

      Eh, he’s overdone the part, but I’ve seen much much worse. Spoony’s frankly a hard act to follow, let alone co-star with.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed. It’s just that they have no chemistry together. I am sure Pat is funny on his own, as we all know Spoony is. And yet, it seems like they each recorded separate reviews off of a script, and cut and pasted them in for each other’s reaction.

      Pat: What are they getting at?…

      [Awkward Pause]

      Spoony: … we’re about to get our answer hopefully.

    And honestly, it seems like Highlander is just plain one of those franchises that desperately needs a “bad dream” reboot. Just totally retcon everything done since the first film and pick up from where that ended.

  • Anonymous

    Well that’s the first two parts, just have to wait for the third. I might actually dig up my own copy of Endgame and watch it before the final part is posted…

    Time, I think for some constructive criticism about the review. I don’t think it was a good idea to cut it into three parts, first of all the cuts between parts are so abrupt they’re almost painful. Second there never really was enough to this film to deserve this sort of depth. It was a cheap and shoddy cash in on the TV series that very few people got to see (in fact it was only ever broadcast in the UK on a late night regional channel, hell the Mortal Combat TV series got more respect). Of course The Source is worse but that’s for later.

    I can’t see why this deserved two reviewers, sure there are more than enough problems to go around. Horrendous acting, plot chasms that could swallow an army whole, pathetic swordsmanship, a brutal disregard for established cannon, character inconsistency, plot points pulled out of everyones arse and even a nonsense ending that makes the 2003 version of Battlestar look plausible. But all of that could be covered by one with a lot more clarity, for one you wouldn’t have to repeat yourselves on certain points. We know half the character building scenes, back story and actual plot was left on the cutting room floor in favour for ultimately pointless flashbacks. You simply don’t need both of these reviewers to cover it.

    Highlander really should have been only one, as everyone has already pointed out. Spoony, you described this film as thumbscrews. I must respectfully disagree, the third film was thumbscrews this… this is bamboo slivers under the fingernails. Rammed home with a hammer.

      I don’t think at all that it is inferior. It is just another style. It is different to the things he produces if he is on his own. Most people don’t like changes. Maybe thats why it appears inferior to you :-)

    Looks like once again Iam either alone on this or maybe I just dont see what everyone else does. I keep getting the feeling from the comments that everyones BIGGEST complaint whenever spoony does a Co-op is simply “This guy isnt spoony”. Well Id like to say to the masses a little piece of information maybe you havent been informed on. I know its odd but its something that you probably should know “PAT ISNT SPOONY”.

    Seriously guys, enough is enough, you are the same people who basically trashed Sean to hell on Wrestle Wrestle. YES we know he isnt Spoony, obviously (I cant imagine too many people who would want to have to watch terrible movies…). My point to this is the fact that yes Pat’s delievery is a wee bit suspect, yes, Spoony does have a minor habbit of upstaging people (intentionally or not). It comes off in bad taste when you write the whole thing off as “It would have been better if spoony was by himself”

    Yeesh, honestly I dont know why Spoony bothers working with ANYONE. Seems like the fans are pretty hardnosed on the subject, hey though, if it means anything I still enjoy the Colabs. Something new, something fresh.

    • http://twitter.com/DickSocrates Dick Socrates

      They’re not fans, they’re zealots. They seem to think Spoony is the only reviewer out there. He’s probably the best, (Cinema Snob gives him a good run for his money, not to mention he updates far more regularly), but not the only.

      I like Pat, watched most of his stuff already. He is weird, which is why I like him. He got featured on Gametrailers quite a few times and has worked with AVGN, so he isn’t unknown.

      I just wonder what Spoony-only bubble some people here live in. Very angry, rude and quite frankly dumb people. Which is odd because Spoony is one of the most intelligent reviewers and is never gratuitous, so not sure why he attracts so many idiots.

        It’s not that I mind other reviewers (I’m always up for a Doug or Lewis crossover) but when the people have such lackluster talent that they almost bog Spoony down? That’s just unacceptable. I actually don’t mind Pat in his live action segments of his reviews (they’re moderately entertaining), but when he starts reading all the funny is instantly drained out of him and replaced with terrible timing and just not giving a shit. It’s incredible how someone can go from decent to crap in a review so quickly, then just stay there. THAT is why I don’t like Pat.

        Its not about Spoony only, however when a guest reviewer (Or was Spoony supposed to be the guest? Considering this was Punk’s show I just noticed.) totally takes over and doesn’t give the partner any lines, that’s just bad. Its not even a Co-op review, its more like a “The punk talks constantly while Spoony sorta just sits there.” Which makes me wonder who’s at fault for this. I mean really, I gotta wonder about the motivation for having Spoony on his show. Was it to work with him or use him as a way to get viewers? Also, just saying there’s seems to be a lot of fanboys/girls of the punk yelling about Spoony fans being ignorant. Have you possibly considered that maybe the Punk doesn’t appeal to certain people? I don’t expect everyone to like Spoony, so why would you expect everyone to just adore the guy who just steamrolls a review and ruins it. I have to say, this is the first co-reviewer I’ve actually hated. He has no concept of co-hosting and has like no personality.

    At about 3:10 when it shows the shells being dropped from the revolver in gratuitous slow-mo, we can clearly see that there is no primer in the rear of the shells. (The little hole in the bottom of the casing) This means that they are not fired shells, but ones that have never been assembled.

    • http://twitter.com/savyono savyono

      Not to mention that said shells appeared to be .45 ACP, which is a caliber for semi-auto pistols.

      Falling out of a revolver.

      The .45 ACP *can* be used in a revolver, but its unusual and the revolver usually needs a special accessory called a moon clip to eject the shells, as ACPs are rimless cartridges. Which causes a whole other set of problems with that scene that I won’t even go into.

      But then again, looking at such problems in this movie is like looking for specific pee stains in a truck stop bathroom.

        Revolvers chambered for .45ACP can also load the .45 Auto Rim cartridge, which has the same dimensions as the automatic pistol round but with a rim, which allows the revolver to load and eject without the use of moon-clips or rod ejector.However, those are not .45 Auto Rim shells, obviously, but the primer-less shells are unsurprising – I can’t tell how many times I’ve seen movies do loving close-ups of ammunition that has been deactivated, previously fired, or has the very distinctive crimping of blanks. (My favorite is the handful of slow-motion 5.56x45mm shells that clatters to the floor in The Matrix as Neo fires off dual-wielded Škorpion vz. 61 machine pistols.)

    I don’t really blame people for bashing Spoony’s collaborations. I don’t think that it’s them hating the fact that there’s someone other than him on the screen, I just think it’s more of a different style. In his solo videos it’s a lot more bashing and cynicism but with Pat it’s meant to be the contrast of slight cynicism with an awkward and manic personality. Only thing Ii can really criticize about this series is that it’s a lot more of explaining plot and letting the awful points of the movie speak for themselves rather than tearing into them himself. Either way though, the worst Spoony video is always better than the majority of other critics in my opinion (Nostalgia Critic and Cinemasnob being the exceptions as their excellent as well).

    Ya know, it just struck me watching this vid the second time, but maybe the reason the whole “fighting on holy ground” rule is taking it right up the ass is because of… Kell’s shoes. No seriously, hear me out. The film makes great effort to show off his shoes every time he walks on the scene, and it has the three crosses welded onto the heel. Doesn’t that suggest that, in a sense, he’s ALWAYS walking on “holy ground”? Perhaps he’s built up an “immunity” to the rule….? Ok, certainly this is by no means NO explanation as to how he can break the rule, but why else would they linger on his SHOES repeatedly?

    • http://celluloidandsilicon.blogspot.com/ Avenging_Mike

      They linger on his shoes since it’s about the only thing established about his character that carries from the past. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the shoes, would you have known it was the same guy?

      It also *supposedly* establishes that he still considers himself a man of God. Not that they really do anything with that.

      I think not. If this guy is still Catholic (or somewhere along those lines insofar as his theological underpinnings ) then his shoes would actually be considered a sacrilegious act..

      Putting the cross on your shoes, especially the heel would be considered an affront and an insult to the memory of Christ.

      Personally, I just think they did it because it was his call-sign, his m.o if you will. Why? Well, his character was so poorly fleshed out, that he nothing else to distinguish himself by, no?

      This guy is TERRIBLE. I like the other reviewers because they were good and didn’t totally dominate the review. I bet I can count the number of lines Spoony had in that review on one hand.

      This is probably because we seem to always pull any comparison between two or more things down to ‘x is better than y’. This has been the case all my life dating back to when I was but a young ‘un and we had two major gaming companies competing in the home console market. And it didn’t stop there: Nintendo vs SEGA became Nintendo vs SEGA vs Sony vs Microsoft, and anyone who’s ever been on a tech support forum knows that Microsoft is the root of all your computer problems and you should get a Mac (despite the fact that Macs tend to be much more expensive, have a shorter lifespan and and don’t have nearly the same range of available software. <- and this line comes from a Mac user.

      Thing is, it's not just Spoony fans, it's the fanboys and -girls that cannot conceive that two or more separate things can be good at the same time without having to designate one as being better than all of the others.

    Highlander Endgame. Ahhh that takes me back. I must have been… 12 years old when I watched this, I think. I don’t really remember it that well, though. There’s sort of a blank spot in my memory. On minute I can remember watching Highlander, the next my entire house was in cinders, I was holding a gaslighter in one hand and the car’s petrol gage in the other, and my arms were covered with blood…

    … Oh right. THAT’S why the production company took out a restraining order against me (which I think was a little harsh. What kid doesn’t threaten a film production company with sadistic torture and murder once in a while?)

    Nyway: good review. The banter did seem a little stilted at times, though, and a few of the gags felt a little forced. Might be a point to improve upon, maybe.

    Don’t get me started on that Watcher “How Many Heads They’ve Taken” program.
    If Methos took one head every year he’s been alive, he’d have 5000, making him far more powerful, though no one says that he should go up against this guy and no one seems to think that he’s “unbeatable.”
    Highlander ran for 6 seasons where Duncan roughly took a head a week, not including the ones he took in flashbacks. If his rate was near that his whole life, I don’t think he’d be quite so low on kills.

    Stronger the immortal, stronger the Quickening. That program doesn’t take into account how many heads the guys he took down had taken. Quality over Quantity. We know Duncan took down some 1000+ year old, badass immortals. If anyone of those guys had a good “level” or whatever this count is supposed to be, he’d be in.

    You could say that the same could be said for the villian, but he never really shows enough fighting ability in this movie to convince me he’s done anything but sucker killed a whole bunch of newbie immortals to get his “head count” up.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid plot device. Watching anything Highlander anymore just makes me want to yell and through things at the TV.

    Dammit, you got me started.

      Incidentally, after killing 661 Immortals over his career, he kills his five goons for a total of 666 kills. UGH.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-English/511299932 Mike English

    That neat little program amounts to nothing, since it only tracks confirmed kills in the first place. And Immortals were around for how many hundreds, if not THOUSANDS, of years before there were Watchers? Before Watchers started keeping accurate records? Information gets kinda sketchy when your best method of transcribing a report is a chisel.

    You’d have to think Watchers originally started in one bastion of civilization or another, and for centuries had no way of tracking what happened elsewhere. On a side note, that makes me wonder how many Immortals were born in, y’know, the Americas prior to their discovery.

    Love the review guys and I’d really like to see more team ups between you two in the future.
    But, Spoony, I gotta ask: why so hard on the tv show? You mentioned in your written review that the whole triggering a pre-Immortals’ immortality with a violent death meant there’s an unlimited supply of Immortals. Not true. Very few people are/were potential Immortals, only a violent death could trigger it, and there were only so many Immortals out there. Eventually the Gathering would come. Eventually potential Immortals would stop coming. That’s almost the coda of the series.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Clark-Cradic/533169744 Clark Cradic

      That and, theoretically, a person could grow old and die without ever triggering their immortality. If it’s only a violent death that sets it off that is.

    i dont care how fresh or cool it is to have this “pat nes punk” guy in ur review spoony….he’s NOT funny and ruined this review …ok ….repeat NOT FUNNY ….no seriously …i wasnt laughing at anything this guy had to offer ….spoony …. i think ur best to review stuff alone and shoud avoid these half hearted …half way schmucks that just drag ur reviews into stagnant lameness and recycled joke material ….and just because he has ”nes the punk” in his name….it does not validate him as being relatable or funny to ur audience….at least to me …this one is just bad ….i watch these reviews to get a good laugh the way YOU do it spoon….not these wanna b’s .  i dont care if i get flagged on for this comment either….im not here to kiss anyones ass just cuz spoony likes this guy and feels the need to give this “nes punk” attention.

    Look, I feel the need to defend Spoony fans. It’s not that we’re assholes. It’s not that we worship Spoony and despise everyone else blindly. I like the Linkara crossovers a lot.

    It’s that…Spoony just has a real level of quality to the reviews he produces (not talking about the VLOG rants. I like those, but they’re just  vlog/blog in the moment thoughts). There’s really witty writing and very tight editing.

    And the truth is no other online critic other than the AVGN is as tight an editor as he is. He just knows how to give everything a really quick and brisk pace without any dead air. And again, other than AVGN, he has the best delivery. He and AVGN sound like stand up comedians, and not just guys off the street.

    So, when he teams up with a Film Brain or Pat or whoever else, we expect that same level of quality. And these other people…they often just aren’t of the same quality. It’s like when Roger Ebert or Richard Roeper would have on a guest critic that really wasn’t up to par with the show. It didn’t feel right.

    We don’t mean to sound like whiners. We just want the quality that we’ve come to expect. This review…it has potential. But Pat is not as good of an editor as Spoony, and his delivery doesn’t seem as natural and off the cuff. He comes off more forced. And there’s so much dead air in this review. I’m left wondering “Wait, where did they go? What am I supposed to be listening to?” at several moments in the review. It just doesn’t have the typical flow of a Spoony review.

    And since it’s the internet, people often won’t use tact when expressing these feelings (or they won’t know WHY they feel the way they do). But…it’s just the truth; some people are more natural than others, and some reviews are better put together than others. Pat has a lot of knowledge on video games and has a massive collection and I’m sure he knows more than Spoony in that department. But Spoony is a better presenter and entertainer. Pat seems more like what you typically get on the net, and Spoony is something above that.

    The reason we follow Spoony is because he is a good entertainer. There are bunches on the net who don’t entertain that well but have something to say. Spoony is really good at both, and you don’t get that often.

    I think it would be pretty cool if Noah and James did a crossover though. James I think is even better than Spoony (well, Spoony’s jokes are less repetitive, but the repetition is part of the joke with James) and they both have a lot of natural charisma, great delivery, and very tight editing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Wells/13805208 Patrick Wells

      Mike Stoklasa is the other best. And the thing is…if Mike or James did a crossover with Film Brain, for example, you better believe that the reaction would be just as mean and full of backlash.

      James did do a recent crossover with Pat that is REALLY good. But it also seems like James was the one writing that, and he takes center stage as Pat just plays a character, rather than Pat joining in the critique. That really worked because of how it incorporated Pat’s love for game collecting (just as the Linkara crossovers work because of Linkaras passion for comics, plus his good delivery).

        Disagreed. Pat was terrible in the AVGN episode as well.

    How did Spoony know his name was Pat? In part 2 he clearly calls him Pat! HOW!? Spoony was never told his name to beging with, I understand that this is a staged thing, but come on guys! You just undermined something you yourselves would have made fun of and complained about. Hell, you were even suppsosed to not know who he was. You didn’t know he was a reviewer! I respect you enough to hate to tell you this but write a script or something so this doesn’t happen, have a “no names” policy for people who supposedly don’t know the others name, REVISE AND EDIT! PLEASE!

    Quick Question How did Connor Know that Kate was a “Pre-Immortal”? How many girl immortals are there 4 or 5 so the immortality “gift” is more dominate in males than females, or rather men are more war like and have the “gift” be exposed more easily.  I don’t know the harder the producers try to save this franchise the more they make it confusing and push it farther into it’s grave.

    • phoenixrider100

      Firstly it may have been an educated guess, as Kate was probably a foundling and Immortals may have the ability to sense such things like they sense other Imortals. Such a thing occured with the Kurgan and Conner meeting for the first time, which explains how the Kurgan knew Conner was a pre-Immortal to begin with.

      And the creators have made clear the immortallity is present in both genders, but decided it was more realistic that, like infant Immortals, female Immortals would not be as physically capable of defending themselves and would be targeted for their physical weakness. This makes even more sense since these woman were from a time where women would not be allowed to train in combat and the belief of social male superiourity was much more common. So there are less female Immortals and those who have survived to this point are either very good at fighting, mainpulating, staying hidden or all three.
