The second "Highlander" movie, again with Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. It's the year 2024 and all the ozone above Earth has gone. To protect people from dying, MacLeod helped in the construction of a giant "shield", several years ago.

Now he is just an old man, until one day some other Immortals arrive on our planet. You see, the Immortals come from another planet... Written by

Originally, Ramirez was not supposed to be in the film. However, Christopher Lambert had become such good friends with Sean Connery while filming the original that he threatened to back out of this film if Connery's character was not added to the sequel. See more »

I have cried in a total of 3 films in my life... Number 1, Bambi, when his mum dies.... Number 2, City Slickers, when Norman the Calf gets dragged down river and nearly dies... and finally, Number 3, Highlander II, as it soooo bad! Remember Highlander? The Locations, The Soundtrack, The Kurgan, The Plot...
Now, take it all away and replace it with...
Awful red sky effect throughout the film, Couple of old Queen songs from the 1st film, Michael Ironside doing a bad Kurgan impression and a "plot" that doesn't have any relevance to the original plot...
That is Highlander II.
