This review is from: Highlander - Search For Vengeance [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
Highlander: Search for Vengeance is an animated take of the Highlander mythos but has little to do with the original film or any of its lacklustre sequels and spin-offs. This film takes the action from the Roman conquest of Britain through some major historical events such as the fall of Rome and World War II (told in flashback) to the post apocalyptic streets of a ruined New York. The story follows the Immortal Colin McLeod as he seeks vengeance through the ages against fellow Immortal Marcus Octavius, the Roman general who killed his wife.

This vision of the Highlander story is interesting but as I have already stated has little to do with the original film. The animation is great but the voice acting does leave something to be desired. The story is interesting with some nice ideas but the rather lacklustre ending is rather a disappointment. Overall this film would probably appeal more to fans of anime than of the Highlander franchise and although this attempt is better than any of the previous Highlander sequels, it is still nowhere near as good as the original film.
