Audio problem: Right as Duncan leaps into the "chain room" in the final fight, he lets out a light "Ugh!" sound. Then, about 5-10 seconds later, when Duncan surprises Kell and kicks him... Kell makes the EXACT same "Ugh!" sound effect.
Highlander: Endgame (2000)
1 audio problem
Directed by: Douglas Aarniokoski
Starring: Christopher Lambert, Adrian Paul, Bruce Payne, Lisa Barbuscia
Deliberate mistake: In the Director's Cut (the version most readily available on DVD), there is literally an entire 15-second chunk of the final fight that is repeated twice within 60 seconds. (It's the bit where Duncan and Kell are fighting on the ground, Duncan kicks Kell, then Kell kicks and slices Duncan) It's impossible not to notice, and it's not they're flashing back to what just happened... they just repeat the same 15 seconds of footage, add different sound effects, and assume people won't notice.
Jacob Kell: What you need to understand is that I don't care about the game. I don't care about the rules. I don't even care about these pathetic souls you keep locked away as a barrier to the prize.
Trivia: Not a mistake but a little bit of humor in the movie...in one of the flashbacks when they save the women in the carriage from being robbed the long blonde haired man is a professional wrestler that goes by the name of "Edge" from WWF. There is a line in the movie that says, "You seem to have lost your edge."
Question: I saw various scenes in the preview of the movie that do not appear in the film itself. Some include Kell being cut in half, and then both halves regenerating into two different Kells. Another was Kell blowing on some floating globe that explodes with the image of his face. This made "Endgame" look like the third film where the villain was the illusionist Kane, but when I saw the movie, these scenes were taken out and the villain had no such powers. What happened to these scenes? What were they about? And are they available anywhere in any earlier cuts of the film? I could not find them in the early cut feature on the DVD...

Answer: The scenes you mention were only meant to be part of the trailer. This was to show that Jacob Kell was the "most powerful" immortal yet. The 'cut in half' scene is playing on the idea that Kell is unbeatable. I suggest rewatching the trailer with these ideas in mind. It may make more sense. These scenes were what Dimension Films wasted a hefty portion of the promotional and marketing budgets on. There was NEVER any script written that included them, nor any version of the film that ever included them.
