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. But, since there isn't left anyone Immortal after MacLeod's victory in the previous film, he has stopped being an Immortal himself.

After this film bombed at the box office, it was decided that the following films, Highlander: The Final Dimension (1994), Highlander: Endgame (2000), and Highlander: The Source (2007), would be true and faithful to the original film, story, and mythology by pretending this film never happened. A long-running joke among Highlander fans states that the official name of the third movie should have been "Highlander III: The Apology". See more »
During the raid on the shield generator near the start of the film, we see 4 characters slide across the zip-wires but when they enter the interior there are 5 of them. When they leave, the guards shoot 2 but then 4 are shown running across a walkway. The next shot shows a monitor with 5 people running down a corridor. See more »
It's not nearly as exciting, fun or cool as the original but it's still a creative and well-made sequel that is hated because of a horrible version that had nothing to do with the director/writer. It's no Blade Runner yet it's the first of a zillion films that tries to be. The drastic changes from the original film were panned at the time but in a culture swamped in bad remakes and redundant sequels, maybe posterity will appreciate how Highlander 2 ramps up the political and existential themes that were wallpaper to its more exciting predecessor.
