An immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his immortal opponent, a murderously brutal barbarian who lusts for the fabled "Prize".
During the final fight sequence between MacLeod and Kurgan on the roof of the Silvercup Studios building, cables can be seen in the foreground pulling the studio's neon sign down. In post-production they have bolts of electricity coursing down them to hide them. After filming had been completed, the production discovered that they had done so much damage to the set and the actual roof of the Silvercup Studios building, as to make re-takes impossible.
The garage is watered from the sprinklers. It also left a man's decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head. The head, which of this time, has no name.
Kurgan: I know his name.
During the kidnap 'chicken run' scene when Kurgen is driving on the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic the car accidentally collides with an oncoming vehicle as they both swerve in the same direction. The camera truck can be seen to slow and camera operator/director/crew member can be seen to rise up a little more and look back.
The U.S Director's Cut and the European Director's cut differs some in dialog. Example: When Connor falls from the boat and end up on the sea floor, the U.S version dialog says: "I'm alive" European version says: "I'm alive...I can breath..." Shortly followed by; "I'll split you in half!" (spoken in the same moment as Connor draws his sword under water)
