DISSAPOINTING RE-RELEASE OF A CLASSIC.,
This review is from: Highlander [DVD] (DVD)
Being a Historian and a film buff i have quite a soft spot for this film.
Highlander is indeed a great picture and fits in quite comfortably with the likes of Bladerunner, The Terminator, and Alien as a retro classic.
Whoever oversaw the DVD release of Highlander did not however, share these sentiments.
What we have here is essentially the VHS edition pressed onto disk.
There is no discernable improvement with the picture and sound quality, no commentary, no worthwhile extra's save an interveiw with Christopher Lambert....in French!, and worst of all, the 15 minutes of film that were brutally hacked off in the editing process are still missing.
That said, Highlander is still a good purchace, and if by some miracle the film gets the attention it deserves and is blessed with a ' directors cut ' , add two stars.

This review refers to the awful first version on DVD, and not the 'Immortal Edition', which has been restored, re-edited, and has not only a directors commentary but also a whole second disc of extras!
