Doc's voice is provided by Jim Byrnes, who played Joe Dawson on the TV series Highlander (1992). Doc is shown to be missing a leg from the knee down, a reference to Byrnes's real-life disability - Byrnes lost both his legs from the knee down when he was struck by a car in the 1970s, a disability which was written into the TV series, which established that Dawson lost his legs after stepping on a landmine in Vietnam. Byrnes also voices the bartender who serves MacLeod, another reference to the Dawson character, who owned a blues bar on the TV series. See more »
I have just purchased HIGHLANDER: THE SEARCH FOR Vengeance from my local wally-world and I was blown away from the very beginning.
I'm a bit familiar with the body of work that the crew at madhouse have done (NINJA SCROLL AND X come to mind) and I have to say that this one is the best yet from him. I'm also glad that the guys who brought HIGHLANDER to life in the first place had a hand with it.
I won't ruin the story for those that are reading this review, but if you are familiar with anime and the sweeping style that comes with it, as well as the movies that I've mentioned, then you will not be disappointed.
Watch it, rent it, buy it! Enjoy it.
