Highlander: Endgame

Other mistake: In the scene where Duncan has been captured by the Watchers and restrained in the upright table, take note of the needle. The camera pans around the Watcher's head and then shows the syringe delivering its contents. Once the dose is fully administered, it can clearly be seen that there is no needle on the end when he holds it down near the Highlander's chest.

Other mistake: As Kate/Faith is walking to meet Duncan, there are cars parked at the side of the road,the scene is meant to be in London but the number plates are the wrong style for the UK.

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: Dimension films infamously pulled some very deceptive marketing in the trailer for "Highlander: Endgame." Much of the footage seen in the original theatrical trailer is a mixture of clips from the prior films and scenes shot exclusively for the trailer that were never meant to be in the final film. This included the trailer explicitly portraying the film as containing sorcery elements (such as the villain being able to duplicate himself and control objects telepathically) and science fiction elements (including Connor and Duncan jumping through some sort-of mechanical "Stargate"-like portal), despite none of these ideas being present in the finished film.

More trivia for Highlander: Endgame

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.
