    The sad part is that in blurb about Endgame I read said that Kell didn’t hate Connor for killing his father just killing him and having his father and clan reject him. Then after wandering in the wilderness for years, it was the Kergan who found and trained/hunted/taught Kell the rules and how to use his hate as weapon.

    But sadly this turned out to be all lies sweet sweet lies.

    God I forgot how horrible this movie was. I think on a story standpoint, it’s *not* as bad as Quickening because, y’know…Zeist. But this is one of the few movies out there where I think I could do better, and I’m a nobody with no talent.

    good review, The only thing is I found Pat’s voice annoying after this 45 minute review.

    I wish you the best with your health.

      Spoony does a review with me and then his health takes a turn for the worse. Do you think that’s simply a coincidence, or some sort of extreme allergic reaction?

    All in all, not a bad review. It’s a little different from the regular style, but that’s ok. Varieation is good. It seemed to be a bit off in the humour department, but it was funny in it’s own way. The Contrast between the two reviewers helped to bring out some of the best in both of them. It seemed like two people sitting in front of a television, doing what they do best. And while it may not be my favourate review, it is torrerable and a good change of scenery so to speak.

    PS-please pardon my spelling.

    I remember watching the movie and guess what? it was the first Highlander movie I saw. and I know I am probably going to get a lot of shit but I actually thought this movie was decent; it wasn’t half as bad as the Quickening. It does suck how they raped Connor’s character. I still love the show. and it is good to see Pat hasn’t tried to kill Destin from Screwattack yet lol

    Oh and lets not forget they retconned how and when Connor found Duncan.

    In the show they said Duncan wander for years before knowing who and what he really was, until Connor found him.

    It was implied that what attracted Connor was stories of a wandering MacLeod who died and rose again. He was hated and feared and rejected by his people. Connor as fellow clans man and guess what Duncan was went searching and found him.

    ALL SPECULATION: The idea behind the minions letting themselves to be killed is so that he can absorb their memories. I guess the minions think that they will live on inside him, in a way, combining their “essence”. They do not see it as getting killed, but rather as being reborn as some kind ofsuper being. Wikipedia says that in the show sometimes the memories of the slain are so powerful they take over the mind of the killer, so my crap theory makes sense to me. This is all complete speculation.

    Hah. That was great. Its sad that Highlander fans had to suffer through a movie that wasn’t even filmed properly. I liked the show but I never bothered with the movie. Seeing Conner and Duncan in the same shot seemed weird since I always figured Duncan was supposed to be just a stand in.

    I made sure to check out some of Pats stuff.

    Wow, reading through these comments section the Pat hate is pretty staggering (largely surprised by how many thumbs up people who insult him get). Considering how he has been responding and taking the comments in stride I am guessing you now warn your co-stars to expect abuse from your fan base here.

    In a way, it is unavoidable if you think about it: slutty girls attract lechers, priests attract religious folks. You have built your internet empire on a foundation of judgmental snark and, as such, draw judgmental snarks as followers.

    I didn’t like Pat when I first saw his videos but he is a lot like A1 Steak Sauce in that the first taste is kind of nasty but the more you eat it the more it sort of grows on you until you realize that it actually is pretty good. Just got to get past that bitter first bite.

  • Anonymous

    I agree with caja. At first I too did not like Pat then he grew on me so much, I am going to watch part 1 again, and give him a chance. I am sure I will enjoy it. Over all it was a good thing, I guess i should have waited until all three parts came out, before I wrote Pat off. Then I began to read Pat’s responses to some of the posts on here, and I began to really like him.

    Good work to both of you. And Pat you should have known better than to pick a fight with man with a freaking heart condition! But I am sure Spoony’s mallory heart is home and rested. ;)

    Going over to Pat’s place tomorrow and watch his stuff.

    great review the two of you. My friend was a big highlander fan of the time so when i came out on video we watch it, we were never the same. But what really got me and my friend was the trailer (i am trying to point out nicely that you made on oversite. still awesome review though) the trailer showed action scenes that were not in the movie, at all. this had us ranting (and probly the both of you,too) we wanted anwser. i was hoping you guys would give them. Like, what was the point of the scenes or was there another scrip that got lost that involved magic? i know i know TROLLING so i will stop but if your have the answers NES Pat or Spoony please reply.

    ps. Pat don’t listen to the haters, we’re Spoony fan’s we are all A-hole even Spoony had to tell us the SHUT THE H*LL UP

    Is the show this movie is based on actually ANY good, or is it pretty much trash as well? Also where are all these immortals coming from? There was only one left at the end of the first movie.

      The TV Series? I think it’s awesome. Of course is not perfect, but Duncan is a cool character and Adrian Paul makes the swordfighting top notch. Far better than any movie, except the original one.

    Also… I am very upset that if Connor dies that totally means that Highlander 2 can’t happen :O. It’s unraveled the space/time continuum!

      As I watched this review, I kept thinking, “They’re going to kill Connor, aren’t they? But that makes no sense, given that he survives to see Highlander 2.” Then he does indeed die.

      Glad I was never a fan of this franchise.

    ok not 100% on this but that end scene with faith and duncan was in the millenium dome in london. why its there still makes no sense, only thing i can think of is the film was made for 2000 releases but thats a weak excuse to me, but hey why not? trip to london for the serving cast.
    a nice review but the beginning seemed kind of forced and saw your ending a mile away, but in a hotel options are limited i guess.

    Given Pat’s encyclopedic knowledge of this movie’s development, I’m surprised he didn’t go through the stuff shown in the trailer which is nowhere to be seen in the actual movie. I suggest looking it up if you want to know what I am talking about.

    I was pissed off when Conrad died and that the Quickening he had was real weak… which compared with all the energies he got from the Kurgan in the first movie is Quickening should have been massive. and forgotten any others he might have after and before. like the guy of the third movie

    During the review I was thinking that the reason why he killed his followers would be to get his immortal kill count up to 666 from 661 xD Maybe that was what they were going for but took it out?

      I remember that being discussed after the film originally was released, but I think it counts up to being 665 since he didn’t kill Kate.

    I can appreciate that it’s tough to organize, script and shoot crossovers at conventions, and i appreciate the work put into this project. In the end though, almost every level of the finished product felt awkward, and that’s a crying shame. I love the work and hope it can be chalked up as a learning experience. I’ll certainly watch it a few times to help with ad revenue, it’s the least I can do.

    Wow, Highlander certainly seems to be a cursed story. I wonder if a good sequel would actually be able to pull the series out of the toilet or simply be a matter of “to little to late”. Maybe if they did one of those Star Trek things where they wiped the whole time line out and started fresh or something? Of course if they were able to make a good movie, for once, it would probably be followed by several inadequate/horrendous sequels itself.

      Well supposedly there’s a remake in the works called “Highlander: The Reckoning” with Vinnie Jones as the Kurgan and (possibly) Kevin McKidd as Connor (who would at least actually be Scottish, not French, like Lambert) but I think that one’s in development hell or something, they announced it a year ago in September and I haven’t heard anything since except for some early draft of the script that got leaked.

    Spoony and Pat look weirdly similar in the most bizarre way. The toothbrush was the funniest part of the review. Here’s to Spoony’s future reviews of the other shitty Highlander movies!

  • Anonymous

    My GOD that was bad! I am sooooooo glad that I never saw Endgame, especially in theaters. How can you just release a movie with something so big as an unfinished effects shot staring you in the face? Even Highlander 3: The Final Dimension had more dignity than this shit. Sure, Mario Van Peebles was the king of overacting but at least the movie itself was fun to watch (regardless of how bad it was). Endgame is one of the downright laziest movies that I have *thankfully* never seen. Sometimes, its hard to call yourself a Highlander fan….

    And OMFG it has been absolutely KILLING me, but i finally figured out who Pat reminds me of! He looks like Richard Grieco in that shitty Bond spoof If Looks Could Kill.

    Great review! Horrible movie! I remember watching this in high school and I hated it so much. But you two do bring up a good point: it is hard to say which one is worse as a movie, but the Endgame seems to have the production values of a B-movie. A bad one.

    Btw, Did Pat have bad mic, because his voice seemed to disappear a lot. Especially in the end.

I’m guessing it was more in Pat’s review style with more emphasis placed on trivia, but that really didn’t take anything away from it as even trivia for BAAAAD movies is fun. The jokes that they did make were all pretty good, though the standoff with remote and electric toothbrush was really strange. And I’m glad Spoony pointed out Pat’s odd hair (if that’s your normal style, sorry)P.S. Spoony’s room for SGC was fuckin nice

    Well as bad as this movie was it was the last piece of Highlander anything that I’ve seen that didn’t suck. Yes, it wasn’t too well put together but it was at least recognizable as a Highlander film. It’s funny with you Spoony I can’t tell anymore if you like Highlander the series or not. You’ve mentioned before that you didn’t but here you are quite familiar with it odd that. I don’t understand why you’d watch something you’d claim to dislike. Personally, I prefer Adrian Paul’s story to Lamberts as I thought until the last few seasons it was far better thought out.

    Good review. I’m not a fan of highlander, but the review itself had a good dynamic goin’ on between you two. Plus, the kind of sarcastic way you present yourself at the beginning of the 1st video is pretty cool. I like you better in this relaxed, teasing way of acting.

    Being a continuously disappointed Highlander fan myself, I must really taunt you into making a review of at least one of the Highlander audio books (read by Adrian Paul, because he has such a great and clear voice right?)
    The first two are nice stories, even if they make the mistake of creating a recurring and important character in the life of Duncan, that was never mentioned before (sounds familiar?) they are within the standards and the spirit of the TV series, but then the last two start to deal with the tempering of the magical and mystical properties of the immortals and their quickenings (insert Dr. Insano voice here) By science!!
    The last one is called “Kurgan Rising”, so yes, he comes back and so does Connor. Man! What do you have to do to kill these f***ers!! I challenge you to listen to that and not spend the next week insulting the author.
    Great review. Loved all the missed/deleted scenes info.

    Why do I get the feeling the exchange at the beginning of this review is not too different from how these two really agreed to collaborate?

  • Anonymous

    Okay, so, this movie says that Duncan killed Connor assumedly around 2000 to gain his power and fight Kell, right? So, uh… that kinda makes a couple of the things in the franchise not-canon, doesn’t it? Mainly the ones that happen in the future, i.e. Highlander II and the cartoon. Connor is very clearly alive in those (although he’s killed in the first episode of the cartoon)… but he was clearly killed here. What, was he magic’d back to life like Ramirez was? Or are we saying The Quickening and the cartoon are non-canonical? What’s the official stance with the Highlander community?

    • http://smellslikegeekstink.blogspot.com/ Jenny

      I think the trick with Highlander is to just imagine everything is in different continuities. The first film exists on it’s own, the series and and it’s extension of characters (including Connor) are a parallel world, Highlander 2 is just a bad dream, etc.

    Yes the movie is terrible but it has Donnie Yen in it and well I did get a bit choked up when he died. Tragic what they did to his character.

  • Anonymous

    Honestly, this still occurs to me as one of the “better” Highlander sequels. Yeah, the acting, writing, editing, cinematgraphy etc. are fucking embarrassing, but it has Donnie Yen in a fairly well choreographed fight scene. That’s enough to redeem just about anything.

  • http://twitter.com/CaptainCanoe Mr Canoe

    Honestly I kinda liked Endgame but watching this review I kinda realize the glaring plots holes but still it’s wasn’t a half bad movie but you do now realize what you have to do. You have to review the 5th movie Highlander: The Source. A movie so bad it makes the 2nd one seem like a masterpiece!

  • http://twitter.com/boogybunny Mireille Sillander

    Undoubtedly this is a bad movie. It’s an attempt at bridging together the series and the movies so like a lot of the time when these sorts of attempts are made, the movie just ends up looking like an extended TV episode (My God were the flashbacks in that thing!).
    However, I don’t get how people point fingers at this and the Quickening – which is only bad when you stop to think about it, otherwise at least they had the decency to recognice that the first movie sort of made away with any possibility of doing a sequel that people would like – but no one mentiones the basement-dwelling stepchild that is Highlander 3: the Sorcerer/The Final Dimension. End Game is at least entertaining in its confusion, Mario Van Peebles isn’t even that. You can roll your eyes and guffa at La Villain Sur Teethgnashing, but the bottomless stench of cheap sequel overwhelming the third instalment makes you wish it would just go away and be 80s somewhere else and quit pretending to be a Highlander movie.

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

      I disagree. Highlander 3 is basically a thinly veiled remake of 1, just with a big layer of cheese. Do a point by point comparison of them, and you’ll see how similar they are.

    Every scene where an actor who has competent swordplay chops has to get the crap kicked out of them by someone who really, really doesn’t, it hurts my head. And our villain is just… awful. Take a second and compare him to the Kurgan. Which one of those two looks, sounds and acts more like an “unbeatable” Immortal? Which one strikes you as more homicidal, more relentless and more frightening an opponent? It sure as hell isn’t the clown with weird crucifix shoes! Not only was this movie awful, but seeing Bruce Payne with a sword again reminded me of Dungeons & Dragons, and now I have a stomach ache.

    (Random trivia attack) I wasn’t willing to read three full sets of comments (I skimmed through all 115 of this ones first though) But the pre-immortals inability to conceive is highlighted in I think season 5 of the series where a girl Reggie had ‘relations’ with came back with a child claiming it was his. Both MacLeod and the Watchers confirm it can’t happen or at least has never happened in any recorded history. By the end of the episode the girl admits she was lying , leaving another plot hole in this movie

    There was another reason for Kel killing his cadre, and it was more subtle you would have to pick up on it earlier. When Joe showed the kill count of Kel, it was 661. Him killing his cadre would of brought him to 666, thus a subtle way… as cliched as it was, for the directors to signify Kel was “evil”. Of course, I don’t think the directors even know they did that in this piece of crap movie.

Earlier in the movie, Joe is talking about kill counts, etc, and of course Jacob Kell’s comes up 661.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6HMTHYLJKFDPCLYCJDTVEFHNNE Tom

      Technically no, because any break in a flashback to go to a DIFFERENT flashback counts as a totally separate flashback. It’s also annoying and is kind of a cheap way to get some exposition in the story and/or pad it when you don’t have enough as it is.

  • Dom Barlow

    Yeah, that final scene is in the Millennium Dome, Grenwich, London, or the O2 Arena as it’s now known. Must have still been an exhibition space when the film was made. No real reason for them to be there, as even if Connor’s grave is meant to be in Scotland, Grenwich would be at the very least 300+ miles away.

    Btw I learned recently the reason Jin Ke was loyal to Kell was because Kell saved him from Xavier St. Cloud during Unholy Alliance incident where he was having gunmen kill immortals before he took their head. Kell’s gang kills most of Xavier’s men and chase Xavier off and Jin Ke swears an oath of Loyalty to Kell because he saved his life and then spared it. Which is why he didn’t fight Kell when he tried to kill him.

         I believe he means “They incapacitated them via gunshots and then beheaded the temporarily ‘dead’ immortals.”

        …It’s actually pretty clever, when you think about it. Why learn how to be an epic swordsman and maybe die when you can do things mortal-style and then finish ‘em with no fight?

           Not to mention ol’ Xavier at the time was (if I’m remembering my continuity here) missing one of his hands…I mean it flies in the face of all the rules, having a bunch of dudes with submachine guns riddle a dude with bullets then doing the head thing.  I’m surprised it wasn’t a strategy you’d see more often, say I want Darius’s head but can’t get at it since he’s always on holy ground, just knock him out with some ether or something, drag him outside the church and voila, holy man quickening sandwich…

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andrew-Hussey/542248884 Andrew Hussey

       Seriously?  I wondered about that…where did you hear about the connection between him and the Xavier situation?  I need to go back and re-watch the series sometime, I actually enjoy it in a guilty sort of “fun” way up to around the point where Duncan cuts his hair right after that kind of corny “Ahriman” thing, it had it’s hits and misses of course, but was watchable.  That last season though…I think Paul was just getting tired of the part or something because you could just TELL he was phoning his performance in just waiting for his contractual obligation to run out.

      Well, just as they said in the review, it was just an editing mess. They probably found out that the audio was a total mess after rewinding the tape, and the actors probably went home to try to wash the fail off them, and wouldn’t return to set to correct. So, they found someone on set that might sound close in heavy traffic and decided close enough.

      As for the second… Well, they probably wanted a few more minutes of action in, and just copied and pasted it since no fucks were given previously, so why start now?
