* It doesn't really explain why the Macleod's having known Connor since childhood, unless there was de-aging or a mass memory manipulation at play.

** One of the alternate cuts of the film replaces "The Planet Zeist" with "The Distant Past," which more or less makes this "canon" (loathe though I am to use that word in relation to anything Highlander 2.) Whether making Immortals time-travellers instead of aliens is an improvement or not varies on your feelings.

Also, in the sequel, Connor turns on a jukebox at a bar to listen to "A Kind Of Magic".

An odd case where whenever a character in the film can hear the background music in a scene, it's always Queen. At the wrestling match, it's "Princes of The Universe". In the Kurgan's tape deck, "Gimme The Prize". In the bar where Connor meets Brenda, "One Year Of Love". On Kirk Matunas's car radio, "Hammer To Fall". Even in the sequel, Connor turns on a jukebox at a bar to listen to "A Kind Of Magic".

Even when The Kurgan begins singing "New York, New York", what do we hear shortly after? Queen's cover of the same song.

On a mostly unrelated note, in order for an immortal to get a "free" Quickening, they need to be close enough to experience "The Buzz" off of that immortal.

** Alternatively, a Quickening still occurs, it's just an extremely weak one since the dormant immortal has only lived a few decades at most (and not killed anyone else to collect their power), making dormant immortals terrible targets barely worth the effort except by the most evil and desperate of immortals (like the Kurgan).

* Why did they start cutting off heads, anyway? Chances are, the Prize was deduced from the effects of the Quickening. Kill one Immortal, gain their power, kill all of them, gain all the power. Appears to be a logical conclusion taken to a mythical extreme over the millennia.

Think about it, how would the immortals even know about it? Because they're "born" with that in mind or sense it ala "The Buzz"? If that were the case, wouldn't they also immediately know what's going on upon awaking from their first death? Plus, with new immortals apparently being born all the time, could it ever truly end? Would the game being won keep the future immortals from being able to become immortal? What about the mortals who will become immortal upon their first death, will they now just die instead? Chances are, "The Prize" was just something made up by the first generation of immortals who wanted to believe that they could eventually live without worrying about being beheaded every day.

Also, Additionally, if a dormant immortal is killed via beheading, by another dormant immortal or true immortal, there will be no Quickening because, for all intents and purposes, they never became a true immortal. Basically, you don't need to be out of dormancy to receive a Quickening, but you do need to be immortal to have one occur upon your beheading.
