Corrected entry: After the cops visit the marine in hospital they get a hot dog outside, look in the background and a passer by/extra (old man with a light coloured jacket) is looking directly at the camera, he even leans up against the lamp post without breaking eye contact with the camera.
Corrected entry: When the marine is driving around all four headlights are on, but when he pulls up in the darkened alley only two headlights are on.
Corrected entry: In the climactic fight scene on the rooftop, the amount of water which pours from the overturned water tower is not nearly enough to flood the roof to the depth shown. The water level also alternates in depth, going from waist deep to knee deep and then back to waist deep again. At one point its deep enough for both actors to fully submerge themselves and the next it's only up to their knees.
Corrected entry: It is stated that the metal in MacLeod's sword was folded over 200 times. While not impossible (if time consuming), it would probably be one of the softest swords ever. Katanas were folded to remove bubbles and to even out the carbon composition of the blade. Repeated folding beyond a few dozen times will actually burn out the carbon, thus weakening the blade. No recorded katana has ever had more than two dozen folds.
Corrected entry: The lead female's name is Brenda, but when Connor looks at the book her character wrote, the back cover says that her first name is "Elizabeth." It's at the very bottom-left of the screen.
Corrected entry: In the initial fight scene in the stadium car park, MacLeod's opponent is seen doing back flips all over the place, but what does he do with his sword when he's doing all that gym-foolery? He's not holding it in his hands and if he shoved it inside his clothing, it would impale him whilst he's bent double.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the police station where Nash is being questioned, the cop asks Nash if he knows anything about Fazil's death "two nights ago". Nash immediately replies that he must have been depressed about the lousy wrestling "last night".
Corrected entry: When the bad guy spears his sword through the windshield, around the middle of the movie. You can tell they did it in at least three shots. The first time you see the hole in the windshield it is a medium sized hole. Then, when he gets out it is a much larger hole. Finally, when he is standing in front of the car, the hole is incredably tiny.
Corrected entry: The Highland scenes are set in 1536, and earlier Nash tells Brenda he was born in 1518 which would make him 18. However, when he is being run out of the village, Nash tells his cousin that "we've been kinsman for 20 years."
Corrected entry: In the scene where MacLeod goes to Brenda's for dinner, she hides her pistol in the middle drawer of the little cabinet, but he finds it by opening the top drawer.
Corrected entry: A metal detector would not be able to find tiny shards of metal in a support column, because of the steel rods embedded in the concrete.
Sunda Kastagir: Macleod, it's good to see you again. It seems like a hundred years.
Connor MacLeod: It's been a hundred years.
Trivia: I was an extra on the Highlander Scottish battle scenes and since Scottish weather isn't the most hospitable, all the extras got very drunk on whisky to keep warm. When you see the Scottish charge insanely, it's because we were all drunk, which led to us picking out the wrong weapons and kilts for the next days filming because no one could remember who had what.
