Highlander II: The Quickening 1991/90min/R **
Something went wrong here in Highlander II: The Quickening Highlander wasn't really considered a classic by all critics but to me it was. We had a 16th century warrior become immortal in 1586 and now 400 years later he finally defeats Kurgen and clames the prize of becoming mortal in 1986. Now we go into the future of 2024 where the Earth is now covered by a Sheild (which was created in 1999) due to what happened to The Ozone Layer breakdown. When Connor MacCloud was watching the Opera (very well done) he flashsback to a place called Planet Zeist??? Now just wait a minute is this film saying there aliens??? Now that just dosen't make any sense at all. The only reason why i give it 2 stars was some decent performances,and somes good effects. Otherwise the story and the plot are absoutely ludricous and stupid.
Highlander II: The Renegade Version 109min R ***1/2
After hearing some good reviews about the Renegade version i decided to check it out. When i watched boy man this film was pretty darn good it clears things up. Instead of The Planet Zeist
now its refered to as A Very Long Time Ago (sorta of what Stars Wars would start out of). So my guess is that there from the past in alternate time period instead of another planet. Now that makes sense. I also noticed with in the film some dialouges have been cut out of the Quickening version and added new scenes to it. Some of the sheilds FX were redone now there more like orange looking rather than purple in The Quickening. CGI effects were used as well like the new computer screen.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
"Highlander 2: Renegade Version" makes its 2nd appearance on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films. I had hoped the video problems from the previous LionsGate release would be resolved. Instead, they persist. Plus, everything else that made that last Blu-ray worthwhile has been removed.

At a glance, the video transfer appears to be identical to the first edition from LionsGate. For those unfamiliar with that release, the image is very uneven. There are moments that look quite good, but they are few and far between. The bulk of the movie looks to have been poorly upconverted from a 4x3 letterbox source, resulting in a massive of amount of jagged edges (aliasing) throughout the presentation.

Making it worse, the movie's new, high-quality visual effects have often been overlaid on top of those upscaled segments. In other words, the video problems go all the way back to the actual 2004 "Special Edition" re-edit. So, when this version was created in 2004, the producers must have opted to work from the existing 1995 "Renegade" video master instead of making a new film-to-video transfer from which to create this "Special Edition". And, they considered this acceptable for high-definition.

Additionally, there is some banding...some very soft scenes...uneven framerates on added visuals from the 1995 "Renegade" version...and a moment during the "above the shield" scene where added effects disappear for a frame.

Where the original LionsGate edition excelled was both in audio and extras. Sadly, both of those LionsGate contributions are absent. The 7.1 DTS sound mix from the previous Blu-ray has been replaced with a lackluster 2.0 mix. And, the wealth of informative extras from that release have been removed.

Format: DVD
The "Renegade Version" of Highlander 2 is promised as having corrected all the things that made the film as orginally released such an abomination. In particular, they remove all references to the "dreaded planet Zeist." Well, thank heavens for small favors! Yes, the words "planet Zeist" are deleted, but that's about all you can say for it. The scenario they used as a substitute is no more coherent, it still doesn't fit into the rest of the Highlander universe, and it _still_ leaves this a gawdawful film.
The only real reason to see the Renegade Version--and this applies only to the DVD--is to hear the commentary track by a number of the movies' makers. This is interesting to Highlander afficianados mainly because it quickly becomes clear that THEY STILL DON'T GET IT. It's truly amazing that these people who engineered a marvelous first film, and a very good tv series, never actually understood what the elements were that appealed to the fans.
Don't view this movie as a Highlander experience. View it as an object lesson in filmmaking and the entertainment industry as a business.

I can't really say much more than "This is the worst movie ever conceived by the mind of man." I've never been so amazed at such a pathetic plot, horrid FX, weak acting, contrived fighting scenes, and so on. I guess this could have some redeeming value if an aspiring director/screenwriter watched it as an example of what not to do. There IS one way to make the movie perfect, however: add in the Mystery Science 3000 guys. They'd have a field day! (And BTW, this is a review of the "Renegade" version. If this is better, I fel sorry for the poor sap who saw "The Quickening" version :P )

This film pretty much destroyed the franchise!
Didn't realize 1 film counts as a franchise.

Renegade Director's Cut is much better, actually makes sense!
Likewise! I still remember the feeling of utter horror that came over me while watching "Highlander II" on its original theatrical release when the subtitle "The Planet Zeist, 500 years ago" appeared on-screen... I knew, in that moment, that this was the most downright WRONG... Read More

Is this the Director's Cut?
Yes, it is. The new "Special Edition" actually IS the "Renegade Version" with now completed and/or enhanced and improved special effects, that weren't completed yet in the "Renegade Version".
