    Didn't even know there was a Highlander 5. Was endgame the one that married the TV Series to the movies?? And is that considered Highlander 4? Higlander 2, whenever I watch it, reminds me of a Hawkman comic...the one from the late 80's/early 80's.

    yeah, End Game was HL 4 and merged the movies and TV show. but in fairness the show pilot episode did that first by having Connor in it.
    5 was so bad they could not even get a theatrical release in the states so it aired on SciFi. it was called the Source and was about finding the source of their immortality. complete with a thousands of years old jabba the hutt type creature/immortal. stone age immortals with steel weapons.....oh yeah, and the producers did not learn from the disaster that wsa HL 2 and set 5 in the future in a post apocalyptic world

    Makes me glad that I missed them.

    I remember seeing the first movie in the theater. I thought it was great fun.

    The second movie I saw on TV, where it was cut to pieces on cable. It made a bad movie even worst.

    I loved the TV series, and Adrian Paul was a GORGEOUS MAN!!!!!

    Highlander 4 was semi sort of maybe okay....after a few drinks, but not really memorable, other than killing off Conner.

    Never saw HL5 and don't intend to.

    I generally ignore the 5th movie exists.

    First movie - Great. loved it. I wish the deleted footage wasn't lost in a warehouse fire. Ironically I didn't see the first movie until after I'd started watching the tv series.

    Second movie - renegade version wasn't bad but it doesn't fit into the whole continuity. Theatrical version is best forgotten - Zeist!

    3rd movie - ok, watchable, not much else to say.

    TV series - I loved it. It really expanded on the whole world of immortals and gave us the Watchers.

    TV series The Raven - ok, had potential but didn't really have any story line direction.

    4th movie - a good 2 hour tv episode.

    5th movie - not really worth it. I saw a working copy and the final Sci Fi version and neither explained what the "Source" was. Only worth watching to see Duncan and Methos and Joe for one last time - although you can see Joe, Methos and Amanda in the "Reunion" dvd which wasn't too bad.

    I hear they are going to remake the first movie - why? Don't know if I'll git it a look or not, I usually don't bother wiht remakes.

    Why does Hollywood think that they need to remake a classic film or one that has become a cult success? The only remake that I've seen that I think was better then the original was "The Thomas Crown Affair" and I saw that without knowing it was a remake.
    I refuse to watch the remakes of:
    The Bad News Bears
    Taking of Pelham 123
    The Manchurian Candidate
    Flight of the Phoenix
    True Grit - maybe a very good movie but why remake a John Wayne classic
    12 Angry Men
    Rear Window
