Highlander

Visible crew/equipment: There is NO invisible magic power lifting Christopher Lambert in air at the end - there are two wires clearly fixed on his shoulders.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Kurgan is fighting Ramerez he hits the wall and stones fall on him. A crew member can be seen pushing the stones out. (00:56:35)

Continuity mistake: In the end, when Connor is receiving the prize, you can see a car battery at his feet, that was hooked up to the swordsman to produce the sparks when the swords clashed.

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.

Trivia: In the video versions, the scene where MacLeod rescues Rachel, the text the German SS officer speaks has not been subtitled or otherwise translated, so it may not be obvious why MacLeod eventually kills the German (I don't know whether that was rectified in the DVDs). Here the translation of the German text: MacLeod trips up the officer and seizes his weapon. The German calls: "You should be dead." When MacLeod orders him to move, the German says: "No. First you will have to shoot me." Then MacLeod gives off his opinion about the 'master race', and then shoots him.

Trivia: Whether it's deliberation or happenstance, Brenda Wyatt's first name is a Norse girl name meaning "sword".

Garfield: You talk funny Nash. Where you from?
Nash: Lots of different places.

Connor MacLeod: I apologize for calling your wife a bloated warthog, and I bid you good day.

Rachel: Will you listen to me for one moment? You can't hide your feelings from me! I've known you too long.
Connor MacLeod: What feelings?
Rachel: How about loneliness?
Connor MacLeod: I'm not lonely. I've got everything I need right here.
Rachel: Oh no you don't. You refuse to let anyone love you.
Connor MacLeod: Love is for poets.

Question: What purpose (if any) do those tiny blades that flip out near the hilt of the Kurgan's sword?

Chosen answer: You can lock your opponent's blade in there. It's good for disabling, disarming, and if you've got the leverage, breaking their blade.
