Is It Any Good?
HIGHLANDER: ENDGAME is one of those what-were-they-thinking? movies. Complete with recurring religious imagery and eye-rolling blather about revenge and redemption, this movie reaches for the sublime but succeeds only in being ridiculous. Based on a fair 1986 movie followed by two contradictory--and abysmal--sequels and a pair of TV series, this latest and supposedly final chapter allies the big-screen hero with his TV counterpart. The problems? The TV shows went off the air several years ago, and anyone unfamiliar with the earlier productions will be bewildered.
The director thinks slow-motion camera work, flammable industrial settings, and nausea-inducing aerial shots make for a compelling movie. Heroes in leather trench coats and a sarcastic villain with a clipped, cultured British accent pass for main characters. Add to the flaws a numbing repetition of sword fights, rife with irritating clashes of steel, and the movie amounts to another straight-to-Blockbuster dud. Yet the gravity-defying martial arts will no doubt appeal to some young action fans.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
