Trivia

This is the first live-action "Highlander" film in which the villain's name does not begin with the letter K. In Highlander (1986), Highlander II: The Quickening (1991), Highlander: The Final Dimension (1994), and Highlander: Endgame (2000), the villains were named Kurgan, Katana, Kane, and Kell, respectively. (The animated film Highlander: The Search for Vengeance (2007) also featured a villain whose name does not begin with the letter K, but it was produced after "Highlander: The Source," despite being released first.)

Goofs

Methos and Giovanni clearly know who the Guardian is when they are talking via their computers. However, when they all go to speak to the Elder, they seem to have no idea who he is as the Elder tells the story of his becoming the Guardian of the Source. See more »

Quotes

Cardinal Giovanni: I thought God wouldn't let this happen to a true Christian.
Methos: You know, Giovanni, I saw Christ teach, I saw Christ heal, you, you self centered son of a bitch, are NO Christian!

Alternate Versions

The US DVD edition added "Quickening Buzz" audio cues for most of the Guardian's appearances, which the Moscow Cut lacked. See more »

Dreadful - Too Bad There Aren't Minus Ratings
21 September 2007 | by paula_kwSee all my reviews

I loved the first Highlander movie, loved the series, and have found every movie after the first to be pretty awful - but I watch them anyway, hoping against hope that they'll prove me wrong. I thought it couldn't get any worse than Highlander: Endgame, but I was very much mistaken. This is just a terrible movie - like watching a train wreck.

If they didn't destroy continuity in every movie and rewrite the history of the Highlander universe, it might be bearable. Like every other Highlander movie, this one acts like nothing came before it and nothing about it makes sense - it's an insult to the intelligence of the fans. And we have to suffer through yet another half-witted attempt to re-invent the source of immortality and what happens if "there can be only one." The post-apocalyptic world is just plain dark and dreary. Endgame was sort of heading in that direction - it was significantly more world-weary and tattered than the world of the series. However, The Source just plain doesn't make sense. For the world to have gotten in this condition, more than a few years would have to have passed, and Joe Dawson should look more than a couple of years older - by rights the character should have been dead before this movie takes place. But hey, I guess they figure we can't add either.

The fight scenes are terrible - the speeded-up special effects destroy the fun of the fight scenes, and you always expect one decent sword-fighting scene in a Highlander movie - not this one! If I had realized how bad this was going to be, I could have resigned myself to ogling Methos for a couple of hours. This movie is so bad even *that* isn't enjoyable. If I had seen this in a movie theater I'd have wanted my money back. As it is, I want back the time I wasted watching this dreck.

I'm giving up Highlander movies for good. As far as I'm concerned, There Can Be Only One Highlander Movie - and this isn't it.
