This unusual boxset (released in the Netherlands) is for anyone in the UK or on Region 2 who is interested in the Highlander movies - but has abandoned the idea of collecting them due to the poor treatment given to their DVD releases in the UK. I discovered this boxset after I was disappointed with the standard, and indeed old prints of the sequel movies I ordered first from other Amazon sellers. But check out this boxset, for the versions here are much better.

Firstly, you have the RENEGADE VERSION (The Directors Cut) of Highlander 2, which has rarely been seen in the UK unless you have a Multi-Region Player that plays Region 1 discs. This version of Highlander 2 erases the frankly horrific memory of the pre-existing theatrical cut which was shown in cinemas.

The Director has now restored the movie to its full-length version, complete with re-cut dialogue - removing the suggestion that the immortals are from another planet - and added new effects and extra scenes making it a much better film. The reworked opening segment now has the style and appearance of a Dune movie, had one been made at that time, and this makes you actually look forward to the movie you are about to see; curious about the other changes that have been made to the picture. The immortal soldiers are now cast as warriors from the distant past exiled to the future, and the insertion of new special effects helps to communicate this idea. Though it still doesn't work as a sequel, and is hardly worthy to the original, it will make you sleep better (if you care about these things) with a feeling that a great injustice has been corrected.

The highlander box set arrived within good time, but one of the discs was unplayable, and the first Highlander film has Dutch subtitles hardcoded that can't be turned off, or even switched to english!.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect Listing... 12 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
Warning to all customers...
Please be aware that the discription to this product is incorrect, I ordered this product because I wanted Highlander 2, 3, and 4 as it is discribed, what I got was Highlander 1, 2, and 3. Most dissapointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Foreign Discs 28 Mar 2014
By bobwat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These are foreign discs with foreign sub titles that can't be removed. Not impressed. The videos themselves are fine.
I have seen them on TV before and knew what I was getting. Sound track is English. Hate the sub titles.

Always enjoyed these films but the quality is poor and English subtitles are distracting but cant be turned off. If you want to see the films and enjoy them buy another version.

Only give it one star because it has German subtitles all through which is very distracting. This was not mentioned before I bought it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars First 3 in the franchise that goes on and on 13 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although I would have got around to watching it I saw the first Highlander movie because my fave band, Queen, did most of the music for the first film. But I was transfixed by it & have seen it about 30 to 40 times now. The less said about The Quickening, the 2nd movie, the better. Nothing at all works in it for me & I have seen it only twice (I watched it a 2nd time just to be sure it was as bad as I thought it was.) The Sorcerer is literally a re-run of the first film but works well I think. Over all worth the cost & a good introduction to the world of immortals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard coded Dutch subtitles spoiled this
Please note that the listing for this box set doesn't mention that the first film (at least) has Dutch subtitles that CAN'T be turned off. Didn't bother checking the other 2. Read more
