"Highlander: The Search for Vengeance" succeeded which "Highlander II: The Quickening" failed. The film although it takes place in the future, kept the same mythology and elements and Colin McLeod was not an extra terrestrial from another planet. See more »
This version of 'Highlander,' released as a DVD, follows the immortal Colin MacLeod, in a similar vein as the original film version. It starts off also in the Scottish highlands, where we see MacLeod mortally wounded but surviving, and is shunned by his clan as they see it as the work of the devil. The clan chieftain allows him to leave in peace, telling him to always remember he's a MacLeod of the clan MacLeod.
The Romans are making their way up north, and MacLeod is the leader of small army who are preparing to fight the invaders, led by Marcus Octavius; another immortal who ends up murdering MacLeod's beloved Moya, which sets him on a mission to destroy Octavious for the crime. MacLeod meets up with Octavius over hundreds of years, but, is always prevented from killing him for various reasons, one of which is the fact he's just not as good a fighter as Octavius. They fight in all the big wars over the years, across the globe but MacLeod finally catches up to him many years in the future.
The world is only a shadow of its former self with people starving and suffering, and there's an epidemic killing thousands of the people, but unless a cure is found, everyone will eventually die. MacLeod comes across a city which is ruled by a tyrant who, as he eventually discovers, is none other than Octavius. The people in the city are dying off but MacLeod comes across a woman who is almost Moya's double. The girl wants MacLeod to help break into Octavius' heavily protected building, where an antidote for the virus is being stored, and after learning Octavius is the ruler of the city, he agrees, in order to avenge Moya.
