An average movie

When I was a kid, I used to love it. Back then, I didn't know it was probably the most dreaded sequel ever (or is it 'Batman & Robin'?!)... Allright, the story and movie itself are rather lame and don't make much sense most of the time but still, the concept of the Highlander in the future was rather interesting. A must see for any Highlander fan.

It's 2024 and MacLeod and Ramirez 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.

Worst Movies I've Ever Seen (Part 2) (20 movies items)

"I could write a 10 page essay explaining what's wrong with this movie, and I would only be scratching the surface. This movie is so bad, that the filmmakers re cut the film multiple times."

Total Film's 50 Sequels That Were Radically Differ (50 movies items)

"The Original: A playful genre mash of historical epic and present day fantasy. Christopher Lambert is an immortal swordsman who searches for the elusive 'Prize'. Think Wheel Of Fortune with swords. The Radically Different Sequel: The Highlander (Lambert) attempts to save the earth by installing an ozone shield. Or something. This is a confused mess and even Lambert doesn't seem to know what's going on. Biggest Change: The total lapse in logic is the biggie here. The Highlander is, for some re"

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: A shield, is the only thing preventing the world, from being fried like an egg, due to the ozone layer being destroyed. As Al Gore would say, "I told you so". Making things worst, evil aliens, from the planet Zeist are trying to hunt down, Connor MacLeod, who also turns out to be a alien, from the planet Zeist. Sigh, my head still hurts, from all of the plot inconsistencies: Year it takes place: 2024"

More favorite quotes from a film. (127 movies items)

"Juan Ramirez: You've remembered almost everything I taught you. Conner MacLeod: I've had a lot of practice lately. Juan Ramirez: There is no substitute for experience. Conner MacLeod: What experience? You've been dead for five hundred years. Ramirez: Most people have a full measure of life... and most people just watch it slowly drip away. But if you can summon it all up... at one time... in one place... you can accomplish something... glorious. "

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Highlander 2: The Quickening is the most hilariously incomprehensible movie I've seen in many a long day -- a movie almost awesome in its badness. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times Mulcahy and company don't ask us to suspend disbelief; they ask us to pretend we've all had weed-whacker lobotomies. - Rita Kempley, Washington Post"

TheNameless' Movie Diary 2013 (378 movies items)

"19.1. Netflix Todella aliarvostettu teos. Sisältää paljon huvittavaa vammaisuutta, menevää toimintaa ja turhia kohtauksia, joissa Connery ihmettelee nykyaikaa. "

"19.1.2013 Okay, this is indeed more boring than the first one and makes very little sense as well with all the planet Zeist and every little continual mistakes, and so on... But I don't think this is a series to take that seriously in the first place, so all that didn't matter to me that much. Sean Connery provides the best stuff in the movie in form of those complete unneeded and drawn-out sequences, like the one with him watching an little too realistic educational video on Airplane and him t"
