Product Description

Anime sequel to 'Highlander', one of the most popular anime films ever. Director Yoshiaki Kawajiri pairs up with original Highlander writer David Abramowitz to create a new feature-length adventure for the time-travel sci-fi tale of ancient Scots warrior Colin McLeod. MacLeod has traveled through the ages searching for fellow immortal, Marcus Octavius, the man responsible for killing his lover, Moya, on the Celtic plains centuries ago. His journey has taken him to a post-apocalyptic New York in the year 2187, the city now a partly submerged ruin overshadowed by a vast monolithic fortress. Ruling what is left of the once proud metropolis, McLeod finds none other than Marcus Octavius, whose despotic plans for the future include offing the Big Apple's populace. MacLeod has the power to save the survivors but, driven by a blinding bloodlust, he has only one goal - to avenge the murder of Moya. After countless gory showdowns, neither immortal has managed pull off a win. Will the remnants of a once-proud New York prove to be the final battleground as these two undying warriors once again come face to face?

First, let's get the obvious out of the way. One, yes this isn't a sequel, two, yes the guy's name is Colin, not Connor, and three, yes the line "There can be only one" is used. The film remains true to the spirit of the original Highlander but is unique in its own right and is far superior to the sequel films it produced.

The protagonist this time around is a new MacLeod named Colin, whose wife is killed by fellow immortal Marcus Octavius during the time of the Roman Empire and Colin swears revenge, beginning a centuries long quest to kill Marcus because through a series of incidents, Colin is unable to kill Marcus, thus leading the story to a post-apocalyptic New York (no surprises there) where Marcus is now a brutal ruler opposed by rebels living in the abandoned and decaying city.

Most of the story is set in the future but in the true spirit of the Highlander franchise, much of Colin's existence is fleshed out in a series of flashbacks, showing him and Marcus fighting each other through Waterloo, Boxer Rebellion, WW2, etc, and the attention to historical detail is immense. There are some great sword sequences and dialogue, particularly between Colin and Marcus and the animation, art and special effects are spectacular.

Although the plot isn't original, this is still a great film to own, if you liked the original Highlander film, Ninja Scroll or sword fighting movies, this definitely deserves a spot on your DVD shelf.

Highlander was a great film and I was really pleased that it has been given an anime spin. The anime really recaptures the spirit of the first Highlander film, charting the development (and lack of development) of McCloud as he battles another immortal, Marcus Octavius.

The story line is fairly standard working along the core Highlander themes of rivalry and immortals beheading each other and taking their powers via "the quickening". The film's central theme is however about Love vs. Vegeance, with McCloud hell bent on vegeance against Marcus Octavius at the expense of those who love him. If I had one criticism of the film, it is that the vegeance theme is overplayed and that the focus on McCloud's tragedy (his blindness to love)misses the point that his actions are always against society and order, indeed this is only overcome by the increasingly "evil" conduct of Marcus Octavius.

The animation is slick and is a good mixture of obvious CGI and more traditional animation. The character designs reflect the director's previous success in being stylistically close to Ninja Scroll. There is some fan service via two of the female support characters, but this tastefully handled and doesn't come at the expense of film time or plot development. The film makes excellent use of colouration to help provide mood (almost like in Kai Doh Maru) while the soundtrack is suitably rock influenced without being overbearing.

The film is a real treat to watch and is a good introduction to anime for those not familiar with it, whilst long term fans will enjoy the fusion of anime themes with classic cinema.

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.

This was a Cut above (Pardon the Pun) any of the sequels to the original as well as the Awful SaTURDay Morning Kids Cartoon.What was the Kid in that called again? Quentin? My God! How many of the Klan Mcleod are Immortal,All of them?.This tries to hark back to the best points of the First flick with A Dark and atmospheric feel that for the most part delivers.

I have just watched 'Highlander (The Search For Vengeance)' and it was brilliant!
Kawajiri's work is incredible; such attention to detail.
The film took me in from the start. I am not a Highlander (regular movie) fan. Don't get me wrong, I certainly liked Connery and Lambert's film but it was not one I ever thought of having in my collection. I am going to have to give those films another look. Highlander Animé was spectacular! I am a huge fan of Vampire D - which is another of Yoshiaki Kawajiri's films. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust [DVD]

I haven't actually seen the original Highlander film but as a stand alone anime film I though this was brilliant and definitely worth a watch if your an anime fan.
