During a fierce sword battle in the 1500s, Connor MacLeod, a simple Scotsman known as a poor fighter, is mortally wounded -- but he does not die. MacLeod learns from the mysterious Ramírez that he is of a race of immortals. These rare knights never age and never reproduce, they can only meet death by the blade of another of their kind. Leaping back and forth through the centuries, MacLeod once again meets the evil Kurgan who nearly killed him 500 years ago. There can be only one. MULTI-REGION A & B

Doing a direct comparison with the earlier 2010 Blu-ray shows improvements all across the board. Sharpness and clarity have been greatly improved on a base level. Details are finer. The natural grain structure of the film is no longer compromised by artificial sharpening, reduction, noise or any intrusive digital alterations or anomalies, and presents a naturally filmic appearance. Colors are warmer and more pleasing. Dark scenes showcase levels of detail never seen before due to the absence of crush. Color banding and aliasing are a non-issue, and only some fleeting compression artifacts creep in from time to time (but won't be readily noticeable unless you're looking for it).
The special features present on the previous release (deleted scenes, director commentary) have been ported over alongside new features including two interviews with lead actor Christopher Lambert (one newly produced, the other from around the release of Highlander: Endgame), an extensive archival documentary called The Making of Highlander, a remastered trailer and a new interview with director Russell Mulcahy. The results are a rather meaty assortment of bonus features, and they're all a must for longtime fans and film aficionados alike.
So yeah, feel free to toss out that old 2010 release, because this new one beats it in every regard. It's hard to argue with a release when the results are so pleasing.
has now been given a new 30th Anniversary blu-ray reissue with new 4k HD restoration transfer
by Lionsgate which will be released in september for the U.S. fans
but U.K.'s Studio canal came in first and released this 30th blu-ray reissue few weeks ago now on amazon uk
the U.K. blu-ray is region B but i have all regions player so i bought the U.K. blu-ray anyway
and here's my review of it
the 4k HD transfer studio canal gave the film looks incredible, No grain or Dirt and the picture colour has been fixed aswell
much better quality than the previous Lionsgate & studio canal release from years ago
the only catch is the transfer is 4k upscale quality so you need a 4k player & 4k HD TV to play the format
otherwise the picture quality will look like standard 1080p transfer when you play the Disc
the sound quality is the same 5.1 master audio mix which sounds excellent
there's also new extras aswell, new interview with Director Russell Mulcahy & Christopher Lambert
plus the feature length making of Documentary from the Immortal edition blu-ray
plus the HD Deleted scenes & the Directors Audio commentary plus other extras carried over to this new 30th anniversary
i've also researched the Lionsgate reissue coming out in september
and i can tell you it will have the exact same content as the U.K. studio canal blu-ray
meaning the same 4k HD transfer & same extras the only difference is the region code actually
but if you have all regions player then it won't matter which blu-ray version you get
i can say this new 30th anniversary blu-ray is the best version to get of Highlander
5 stars for it based on incredible 4k HD transfer & old & new extras
