Highlander: The Source synopsis/summary. Scheduled to be released in September 2007.
The world is falling into chaos. As he roams a crumbling city, Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander, remembers happier times before the love of his life left… Hopeless and alone, MacLeod finds his way to a band of immortal companions, including his mysterious friend Methos, and a mortal, Watcher Joe Dawson. Together this small group sets out on a quest to find the origin of the first Immortal and The Source of their immortality. (and no, Methos is the oldest living immortal but not the first)
I doubt if the producers can fix the bad ending and the un-Highlander-like storyline. The villain animation (villain included) was so bad plus the final battle was just so lame with a capital L. No flashbacks even. How could they have dropped the ball? (well they started with Highlander Endgame so…). They got this origin storyline plus the first immortal plus duncan and methos back and they just goofed up. Awful movie. The TV series was better, much much better. Damn! –
A Furious Highlander Fanatic
Anna Teshemka: Duncan MacLeod’s mortal wife thrown into the world of Immortals when she met and fell for him. Beyond the shock of his Immortality, there was another obstacle: Immortals canâ€™t have children.Then, something that she couldnâ€™t explain was pulling her away from him, ultimately causing her to leave…and with her went MacLeodâ€™s reason for living.
The Guardian: The Guardian wears black armor with Roman influences. With his superhuman speed, this ancient immortal seemingly invincible. He stalks the Immortals along their journey.
Cardinal Giovanni: This immortal is a religious fanatic obsessed with the legend of the Source. He has enlisted a group of Immortals to help him find the Source. He doesn’t get along with Methos, who tells him, “I saw Christ teach. I saw Christ eat. I saw Christ heal. And you, you son of a bitch, are not a true Christian.”
Reggie Weller: This astronomer is recruited by Cardinal Giovanni to search for the Source. He sees the stars align in a way they havenâ€™t for hundreds of years. This overcomes his skepticism about the Source and motivates him to join the quest. A cheeky cockney who grew up in the slums of East London, Reggie uses humor and bluster as survival skills.
The Elder: The Elder is a repulsive figure — his blue skin hangs in loose folds like blankets — and he explains how long ago he found the Source and fought the Guardian. He was defeated and punished with a fate far worse than death. He cannot die but his body continues to age, withering away and turning him into an abomination.
Character info via Highlander The source wiki entry
A Russian DVD version of the film is available on the internet but the producers warn that isn’t the final version of the film. Some internet sources say that the leaked version is full of storyline holes and the ending wasn’t satisfying enough. Add to that some cheezy special effects.
