The final fight scene that takes place at the Silvercup studios (the sign is used in a few shots) used to be a bakery for the Silvercup bread company that had gone out of business a few years earlier.


During the final fight sequence between McLeod and Kurgan on the roof of the Silvercup Studios building, cables can be seen in the foreground pulling the studio's neon sign down. After filming had been completed, the production discovered that they had done so much damage to both the set and the actual roof of the Silvercup studios building as to make re-takes impossible.

Yeah, at least yesterday when we were talking about it but the few of us is fine with me though. Very Happy
We're still having fun. Wink

Yep. I wonder how long this movie is?

My guess is no. I think the bad guy wins in this one. Sad

Yeah. It was sort of last minute. And since I was posting the thread this evening I just figured to have the watch thread. Sad
I didn't even know you were going to post it. I came home a little early, just in case I was going to have to.

In the scenes following Connor taking the Kurgan's head, director Russell Mulcahy had originally envisioned an animated dragon with the Kurgan's skull battle helmet emerging from the Kurgan's decapitated body and challenging Connor again. Only after Connor had defeated this Ghost-Dragon would he have received the final quickening and subsequent Prize. This idea was eventually cut due to budget restraints.

I've always wished for a Highlander sequel thar follows what happened in this one and takes place in a Blade Runner type dystopia with a new generation of young immortals, upgrading themselves with crazy cybernetic enhancements, the surgeries for which, only they could survive, and an old, nearly dead Connor pulling a Miyagi for his replacement.
