Amazon.com

A distant and animated sequel to the 1986 Highlander, which starred Christopher Lambert as an immortal Scottish swordsman, Highlander: The Search for Vengeance concerns the tale of Colin MacLeod, a 2nd century, Celtic warrior who becomes immortal following his defeat at the hands of Roman tyrant Marcus Octavius. Colin spends the next couple of millenia chasing after Marcus--also immortal--as the latter reinvents himself time and again as a ruler of kingdoms in every corner of the globe. The longtime duel extends into Earth's dystopian future about 200 years from now, where Colin--now a wandering mercenary--finds Marcus once again making lives miserable as head of a private government wielding a deadly virus. Drawing Colin into the fight is the lovely Dahlia, hauntingly reminiscent of every woman the hero has loved over hundreds of years. Dynamic, visually compelling, and boldly imaginative, Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is full of surprises and more than just another story of an embittered loner meandering through a futuristic wasteland. Directed by the prolific Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Neo-Tokyo). --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprised June 5, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just finished watching Highlander: The Search for Vengeance and must say I'm pleasantly surprised. After watching sequels from some of my favorite franchise films I was worried this would fall into the same category. To be blunt I'm speaking of The Crow: Wicked Prayer and Highlander: The Source. (The Source can be purchased on DVD in Russia)

I'm happy to say that this film doesn't fit into either category. It has some excellent animation and doesn't walk all over the Highlander mythos (NO PLANET ZEIST). Now that being said I have to agree with the previous reviewer that the plot was kind of weak. For this reason I didn't give it 5 stars. However it didn't detract from my over all enjoyment of the film.

If your looking for comparisons I would have to say 2 parts Highlander + 1 part Vampire Hunter D + 1 part Ninja Scroll (same director for Ninja Scroll & Bloodlust).

I recommend this DVD to any fan of the aforementioned films. After watching this DVD I must say there is hope for the earlier mentioned franchise (The Crow). The Highlander has made a step forward with this superior animation. Perhaps next time we'll get a stronger story. I would love to see The Crow get this kind of treatment.

4.0 out of 5 stars There Can Only Be One... August 24, 2010
Format:DVD
The Review:

Highlander is a 1980s sci-fi/fantasy movie starring Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown. Christopher Lambert plays the titular role of the Highlander, Connor MacLeod of the clan MacLeod. Connor, born in 16th century Scotland is mortally wounded during a battle with the evil Kurgan played by Brown, but Connor does not die. Instead he heals with a supernatural rapidity. He's subsequently chased away by his kinsmen who don't see his recovery as miraculous, but instead view it as a clear sign of witchcraft. Enter Sean Connery as Ramirez, an immortal, Yoda-like figure, who sports one hell of a Scottish accent for a man with a Spanish surname. Ramirez takes it upon himself to give Connor a crash course in swordsmanship and the pros and cons of immortality. On the up side Connor will live forever, unless someone cuts off his head, but on the downside immortals can never have children. Another possible downer is that immortals must fight each other to the death (by beheading) during a time called The Gathering, though never on hallowed ground, until only one remains. There can be only one, and that one surviving immortal obtains The Prize.

Highlander succeeds on several levels. It's a great adventure with two great, but contrasting settings--the sprawling, bucolic Scottish highlands and the gritty, cramped streets of 20th century New York City. The New York setting places stakes the film's claim on within the urban fantasy sub-genre and as an added bonus there are engaging romantic elements. Highlander has great fight choreography, beautifully shot scenes and a lot of little touches that catapult it to the status of cult classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars There Can Be Only Two June 5, 2007
Format:DVD
Colin MacLeod's bloodlust sustains him for hundreds of years as he hunts for the villainous Marcus, the man who killed his wife 1,000 years ago. We can feel his pain in every step as he seeks to quench his thirst for vengeance. Finally, a worthy follow-up to the original Highlander has arrived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highlander finally gets done right January 11, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since the original film was released in 1986, Highlander has seen four movies, two live action TV series, and a children's animated series. With the exception of the first TV series, all of those spinoffs were universally terrible. Luckily, Highlander: the Search for Vengeance finally dusts off the franchise and realizes its potential.

This movie is not a children's show. Don't confuse it with the animated series years ago. The film involves on-screen beheadings, mutilations, and sex. It also doesn't explain much about the immortals that serve as the focus of the movie. It's assumed that you're already familiar with the long-running franchise, and that you don't have to be brought up to speed.

The movie itself is fantastic. It takes everything that Highlander has traditionally messed up -- a post apocalyptic environment, an immortal supervillain, and ghosts, for example -- and makes them fit naturally into the world. It retains the awesome action that made the first movie a hit, and includes the moral ambiguity that served as the appeal of the first TV series. The main character, Colin MacLeod, is a man obsessed with killing the immortal who crucified his wife thousands of years ago. On his journey to finally get revenge, however, he becomes an inspiration and a hero to the people that his foe Marcus Octavius is now oppressing. The immortal must leave two thousand years of vengeance behind to save the day.

With a terrific plot, excellent art direction, and solid voice acting (including an appearance by Jim Byrnes, who played Joe Dawson in the series), Highlander: the Search for Vengeance finally takes the floundering franchise and produces a gem that hasn't been seen in over a decade. The only thing it's missing is Queen on the soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Take On The Highlander Legend! May 19, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On this take of the Highlander legend, we find a Scotsman named Colin who was born in the 2nd Century when his clan was killed by an immortal named Marcus Octavius who was a Roman emperor at the time. He was also killed by this same immortal but returned as one himself.

Years later, he was adopted by the clan Macleod and was killed in battle but came back again. Like Connor and Duncan, he was rejected by the clan as he continued to search for Octavius.

In the modern era, he finally finds him but now has to make a choice between love & honor Vs. pure vengence as the people in the city are dying but his lust for revenge for his clan has not abated.

While not a great film, it is certainly better than the recent trash known as The Source! The animation for it is nothing groundbreaking but good! The Highlander story is tailor-made for anime and we can only hope there are more features.
