Possibly the worst sequel ever...By a customer from Nottingham, UK , 08 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Highlander 2 has the potential of being the worst sequel ever made due to the fact the the original Highlander was such a fabulous movie.
After pretending like the first movie never happened, the story revolves around Connor McCloud being involved in the repair ozone layer! C'mon ... how ridiculous.
If it wasn't for the fact that the same guy who made this directed the first film, I'm sure he would be a taxi driver today... and I know that studios get involved and usually mess around and make great films just sometimes seem good, but there was nothing remotely good about this when it was just on paper surely, what a mess.
Steer well clear of this turkey.

this is not the version describedBy jaspal from manchester, england , 25 Jun 2006this version of highlander 2 is not the one advertised to rent, it mentions 2 cuts of the film however its is a full screen single version on the disc which is disapointing. where can i get this so called renegade version. im one of the very few people that is a fan of the film. reasons being great action, quality swordplay, michael ironside is great as the baddie and a good rival to clancy browns first effort, always a pleasure to see connery and an intersting concept for the direction of the story to go in. shame it never continued..it could have been like the blade trilogy. wrong decision by the studios i expect and maybe lambert stuck his awe in too much. never the less im eager to see the different cuts. help!
What happened?By petalpink from Devon , 23 Mar 2006Ok First of all I would like to say I am a real fan of the Highlander films, but this....well lets just say its confusing.
If you haven't seen the first Highlander then watch it, if you have seen it, it ends up confusing matters such as where the "Immortals" come from and what they are doing on earth.
I thought that Connor McLoud was born of a woman from earth....after all dont you see her getting blown up with gun poweder in one film?! well in Highlander 2 they are transported to earth fully grown people.
Some parts of the film are good and I will not say the whole thing is bad I would just say that it doesnt exactly follow on from Highlander.
Oh and before I forget i think there is way too much time jumping for people to understand whats going on.
Really all the films need to be watched together before some seemingly random information from one film is forgotten then the outcome or follow on from that information is used in another film!
What a load of RubbishBy Stephen Willetts from Derby England , 06 Feb 2006The Highlander was surpossed to be from Scotland not some distant planet. The end of first meant that he was the last of the immortals, how then can somebody even think that the man is from another world its that bad It doesn't even deserve the one star rating
How Did This Get Made?By a customer from Glossop, England , 23 Dec 2005The first film is a classic. The accents are all over the place but who cares? Its a brilliant 80s genre film and I hold it close to my heart. I first saw the sequel when it was released but it had been so long that, despite it leaving an awful taste in my mouth, I had to watch it again. I shouldnt have bothered. It destroys everything. There can be only one? There can be only countless rubbish sequels, a TV show and a cartoon! This film is possibly the worst sequel ever made. It also ranks as one of the worst films full stop. Freakin terrible, Cochise. It speaks volumes that the subsequent sequels, while still far from good, chose to ignore the events of this film completely. Erased from memory. I only wish I could do the same.
What a load o' cr@p!By a customer from scotland , 03 Dec 2005Words fail me! I wouldn't bother wasting your time!
