Buy it... only if you consider yourself a devoted fan of the Highlander franchise and seek a decent, though underwhelming culmination of musical styles throughout the years of its run.

Avoid it... if you are only a casual observer of the cult phenomenon and hoped for a big, thematic, and symphonic score for the closing of the franchise.

Highlander: Endgame: (Stephen Graziano/Nick Glennie-Smith) In the end, there can only be one. That is, unless you have several motion picture sequels, a few television series, and an array of comic book spin-offs. Even fifteen years after the success of the original Highlander film, the concept's cult following seemed to have an immortality all in itself. The television series of the mid-1990's picked up the slack for the truly terrible direct sequels that had been inexplicably launched at the big screen. Miramax didn't let the fact they obviously weren't familiar with the genre stop them from cashing in on the possibility of merging the two storylines in Star Trek: Generations fashion. In the plot of this final installment, the legendary Connor MacLeod and his small screen equivalent, Duncan MacLeod, team up to fight yet another nasty immortal (is there an endless supply of these power-hungry dorks?). Realizing that Christopher Lambert was starting to show his age (which may or may not be an acceptable turn of events for an immortal warrior, not to mention that he'll never look as cool as Sean Connery), a mighty climax of the storylines is a necessary passing of the torch, and if plain common sense doesn't spoil the film for you, then the track listings of the album certainly will. It would make sense that after the franchise rotated between countless composers through the years, this final production would provide for a momentous score to symbolize everything that had transpired in the previous fifteen years of the story, something to make fans' heads roll with delight. Alas, it was not to be so. Media Ventures product Nick Glennie-Smith, whose scoring career was already headed down the tubes by 2000, wrote a score for Highlander: Endgame but reportedly departed the production at the last moment, refusing to allow his name to be attached to it. The same thing, interestingly, happened to him on The Rock, and perhaps it's because of this little problem he kept having that his career never went anywhere. In the final hours, Miramax brought in trailer and television music master Stephen Graziano to fill in the remaining material, combining it with some of Glennie-Smith's score to form a muddled result.
