Storyline

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 Tom Benton

Who threw in a good Highlander sequel among the mess of the others?
16 January 2013 | by (Bailey Downs!) – See all my reviews

Yoshiaki Kawajiri. That name may not mean much to your Average Joe but say the name to any anime fan and you'll start a conversation that you'd probably wish you didn't if you didn't like the genre. I don't like the genre but I LOVE Kawajiri. When I heard this existed, after watching Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust I knew that he could easily put the original in its place and finally make a sequel that either comes up to the standard of or exceed the original. This managed not to waver expectations.

The plot is that Colin MacLeod is in post apocalypse New York and his arch rivalry, Marcus Octavious is the leader of a fascist government that secretly creates a virus that wipes out 80% of life in New York. For him and Colin, that isn't a problem. Colin finds out about this and attempts to kill Marcus. After yet another failure where he manages to survive, he explains to Dahlia that he is an immortal trying to get revenge after he killed his wife and him, 2000 years ago. By the end Colin is less concerned with revenge and more concerned with fighting against the oppression of Marcus' "government".

What to compliment? The music is almost heavenly. The piano song at the end is phenomenal and the guitar solo at the beginning is fantastic.

The music isn't the best part, The script. I know there was this one guy from Germany who said this entry dealt with things that had never been in previous Highlander films before such as Sorcery (Highlander 3) and demons. This can easily be avoided because this isn't technically a sequel. Its a re-imagining. It isn't meant to be in the same universe as Connor & The Kurgan. While this isn't the best written script of all time, its still a fantastic script.

Overall if you want a good Highlander continuation of any kind, I hold this up (no I have NOT seen the TV show) and I hope you enjoy it.
