The lone warrior Colin travels with the wise-cracking ghost Amergan through the ages searching for the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who killed his lover on the Celtic plains tens of centuries ago. On his quest, he discovers New York is submerged, and one dominant monolith fortress towers over the seas. Colin can save the survivors, but his sword only hungers for the blood of one man. Despite many lifetimes of training, Colin has failed to vanquish Marcus on the great battlefields of history. Can he finish what he started and stop Marcus? Will Colin lead the people to freedom or become consumed by hate? There can be only one. Written by
The American version of the film is shorter than the Japanese version. Producer Galen Walker said in an interview that "about seven or eight" scenes were cut "just for timing, and just for pace of story", and admitted that director Yoshiaki Kawajiri was unhappy with the cuts. An opening exposition text, which is traditional for Highlander films, was also added to the American version. See more »
21 Years Later, They FINALLY Make A Descent Sequel To Highlander.
I Can't Be 100% Sure About That, I Only Saw Highlander 2(As Far As Sequels Go) And That Was One Of The Worst Sequels I Have Ever Seen. I Saw "Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust" And Saw This Next To Yoshiaki Kawajiri's Name And That Was An Immediate Selling Point. This Isn't As Good As No.1 But I Think Most Highlander Fans Can Agree That This Is A Descent Sequel(For Those Who Haven't Completely Given Up On This Series).
Colin MacLeod Is An Immortal Who Has Arrived In New York 2187 AD To Find Marcus, A Former Roman Who Wiped Out His Army In The Times Of The Romans And Crucified His Wife.
Yes, This Does Put Flaws In The Original Highlander Movie's Logic (eg How Was Marcus And Colin Unable To Be Drawn To The Prize In The Original Movie?) But It Doesn't Say "Immortals Are From Another Planet, Ramirez And Connor Knew Each other Before They Met In The Original And Were Friends." I Do Think That This Tries Its Best To Bring Some New Cards To The Highlander Series However Keeping Something Old In It.
Overall I Suggest A Viewing For Anyone Who Wants A Descent Sequel For Highlander.
