HIGHLANDER II: THE QUICKENING (Theatrical Release USA 1991)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì


Highlander II: The Quickening—
not much better than its prequel—earns at least one watch based on finishing the series. It serves best as a film running in the background for a party watch and most likely will complete its cycle as a good cult film. Good work for Director Russell Mulcahy.

Storyline

Earth’s inhabitants are protected from depletion of the ozone layer by a massive shield that prevents the sun’s rays from killing earth’s inhabitants. When the ozone layer has replenished itself, the corporation receiving income for the shield battles for shield maintenance due to the commercial profit it provides.
