Editorial Reviews

Prepare to experience one of the most spectacular cinematic adventures...It's 2024 and MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and Ramirez (Sean Connery) are back to save planet Earth. Ozone depletion, time travel and corporate greed are at the core of all the thrilling twists and turns in this stylish action sequel. Featuring state of the art special effects and digital remastering, it's Highlander 2 like you've never seen it before!

Customer Reviews

The original Highlander 2 was one of the worst movies ever made.
Charles Cochrane
For some reason, the immortals are aliens in this version, and they come to Earth to find Connor MacLeod and kill him.
M.M.
This movie is so bad that its almost worth watching just to see how bad a movie really can be.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
After the huge cult success the original film "Highlander" enjoyed since it's release in 1986, it was merely a matter of time before Hollywood would deliver another adventure featuring everyone's favorite Scottish Immortal, Connor MacLeod. Even though many enjoyed the first film, the hardcore fans felt that a sequel was pointless since it appeared that Connor had gained the 'Prize' after defeating Kurgan. Though in my opinion how they knew the difference between Connor receiving the 'Prize' or just another Quickening is beyond me. I felt that a sequel to "Highlander" would be fine, as long as it could equal or surpass the original film. In 1991, "Highlander 2: The Quickening" was released to theaters and fans of the original could hardly wait to see this movie, yes even the nay-sayers were excited. How could they not be, I mean, with the return of Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, Sean Connery as Ramirez, and adding Michael Ironside as a new villanous Immortal named General Katana, plus "Highlander" director Russell Mulcahy helming once again, what could possibly go wrong? Sadly, the answer would be, a lot. The original film as covered in previous reviews by other viewers, was a slap in the face to fans of the original film, and even to the cast and crew. Apparently, the movie studio became too involved in the filmmaking process, leaving audiences with a terrible movie, with a horrible story, and shoddy special effects. In the original theatrical release of "Highlander 2: The Quickening", the Immortals are said to be from a planet called Zeist, and they fled their homeplanet after a civil war erupted and came to Earth to prosper. This revelation completely alienated most of the 'Highlander' fans, and the ones that weren't alienated probably aren't true fans.Read more ›

Format: DVD
My what a confusing film this is! What happened to the concept of the valliant poet warrior introduced in 'Highlander' and why, or better put how has Ramirez returned, head intact? Even worse, what's all this silliness about the alien nature of the Immortals and their home planet Ziest? ABSURD! (I haven't even mentioned that the original film didn't leave an opening for a sequel. MacLeod was the last Immortal left and the prophecy was fulfilled. Well, so much for plot accuracy).

There's an important lesson to be learned here. That lesson being that in the topsy turvy realm of Highlander sequels don't expect any consistency in storyline from one film to the next, The more you try and make sense of things the less you'll enjoy the movie. Just be happy that Christopher Lambert agreed to reprise his role as Connor MacLeod and be done with it. (Riddle: When is a sequel not really a sequel? Answer: When it's a Highlander movie).

For completist only and even the most hardcore fan has a tough time sitting through this mess.

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".
