Now that I’ve gone over all the behind the scenes crap that Highlander: Endgame went through, it’s time to dig into the movie itself. But first, I’m going to mention something positive: I like the opening. It follows along with the first Highlander movie in providing just text narrated by one of the main characters – in this case, Christopher Lambert as Connor.
In the days before memory, there were the immortals. We were with you then, and we are with you now. We are driven by the endless fight to survive in a game which knows no limit of time or place. We are the seeds of legend, but our true origins are unknown. We simply are.
That’s some pretty good stuff, focusing on the immortals as beings of magic and legend who have followed humanity through the ages. The last bit is admittedly a little out of place in this movie, which never touches on the origins of immortals. It would probably fit better in a film that tried to explore the source of immortality
Did somebody say The Source?
No! Go away! You don’t exist yet!
