Pondering la vie en rose

Endgame opened September 1, 2000 in North America to almost universal bad reviews from professional critics. Reception from fans was generally more positive but still very mixed.

There were several memorable moments in the film like the chemistry between the heroes Connor and Duncan MacLeod and cameos by actresses from the first film. However, these were diminished by inconsistencies in the plot as well as with previous Highlander canon, laughable overacting by Bruce Payne as the villain Kell, and lack of development for secondary characters (Kell's henchman Jin Ke was wasted). Perhaps most telling, Endgame went straight to video in the UK, and the worldwide video/DVD release was re-edited with a longer running time and a different ending.

Peter's screentime was short — really only a cameo — but Methos still squeezed in some witty comments with all his expository dialogue (i.e. info dumping). The token presence of Methos and Joe (Jim Byrnes) was just to establish them as part of the movie continuity. If there are future Highlander films (and that's a big "if" at this point), Methos and Joe should have bigger parts.
