Highlander II: The Quickening

Plot hole: The famous line "There can be only one" is uttered in every Highlander film. At the end of the original, Connor obtained the prize by killing the Kurgan and being the last one. However, in this film and others, you find out that there are still others around, such as Duncan, the woman who was Duncan's girlfriend in Endgame, the other immortals following Jacob in Endgame, and the ones that showed up in The Source. So, why did Connor obtain the prize? He still wasn't the last one.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, when all the guys are running away from the explosions in the war, you see a guy getting thrown into the air, but the black kickplate that propels him into the air is clearly visible.

Trivia: The producers didn't want to make a sequel to the original, but were pressed to do so by foreign investors due to the original being a hot-seller on VHS. During production, filming became a nightmare, as the script was constantly being re-written to contrive different ways to continue the story, and the film went over budget, causing the insurance companies involved to take over production and further "mess with" the storyline and effects to get it done quickly and cheaply. Director Russell Mulcahy was so ashamed of the finished film, he walked out of the premier before the end of the first act, and co-stars Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Michael Ironside have all admitted that the film was absolutely terrible. Lambert only finished filming because he was contractually obligated to the sequel, whereas Connery only made the film due to his friendship with Lambert and the steep paycheck he received, which he wanted to donate to charities he supported.
