1 In defense of Highlander 2, the film was beset with budgetary difficulties which stemmed from runaway inflation in Argentina (the filming location) while the movie was being made. Creative control over the movie ended up passing to the bonding company, which did a hasty slap-together job that became the original theatrical version, which director Russell Mulcahy disliked in the extreme (and that's STILL putting it mildly). Mulcahy eventually released a Director's Cut DVD (subtitled "The Renegade Version") which was miles better, in no small part because the BS plotline about Planet Zeist was excised. The Renegade Version DVD also includes a featurette where Mulcahy provides a more detailed explanation for why the theatrical version was such a turkey. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 24, 2014, 11:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Is Hollywood really stupid enough to cast Ryan Reynolds as McLeod in the remake? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 29, 2012, 2:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I actually loved "End Game." I thought the merging of the movie series with the TV series was a great idea. I could see how it might be confusing to someone who hadn't seen the previous Highlander movies or watched the TV show, though. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 24, 2010, 1:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The director's cut was released in Japan: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=GNBA-7562 But never released in the US like they had promised. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 24, 2009, 12:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 Yeah, the anime was pretty decent. Better than all the live action sequels, and the all-but-forgotten atrocious French cartoon. But apparently the producers screwed over the anime director (same guy as Ninja Scroll, IIRC) and cut a bunch of stuff out. The producers claimed they were going to release a director's cut, but never did. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 23, 2009, 10:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Highlander was a great STAND ALONE FILM- all of the sequels and remakes are not only bad, but beyond awful. Shame on Hollywood for dragging this out to try to steal a dime from the fans of the first film- unforgiveable BTF moments all around! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 6, 2009, 9:35 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
