They missed the mark horribly, but nobody can fault the makers of Highlander 2 for not trying to expand the scope of the original story and take it in totally different directions.

Feels more like a brainstorm exercise than a feature length film.

Highlander 2 is a mess. Nevertheless, damn it, it's a gorgeous mess...incoherent, but a joy to stare at for 105 minutes, watching as a franchise is epically flushed down the toilet.

The film is desperately overplotted; events and years rush by and pile up like cars in an interstate wreck. It's also terribly overexplained.

Audiences unfamiliar with the first film will be hard put to follow the action [from a story by Brian Clemens] as it incoherently hops about in time and space.

Leaden, laden with effects, short on imagination.

Another substandard sequel.

...[not] as bad as it's been made out to be over the years.

Incomprehensible doesn't even begin to explain it. This movie is the equivalent of the "Hey look over there!" gag. You look, and the guy you wanted to beat up has run away.
| Original Score: 1/5

The director's cut elevates this misconceived sequel from one of the worst stinkers ever to merely dreadful.
| Original Score: D-

Beyond redemption.

It would be best if we all just agree amongst ourselves that this movie never happened.

Highlander 2: The Quickening is the most hilariously incomprehensible movie I've seen in many a long day -- a movie almost awesome in its badness.

Mulcahy and company don't ask us to suspend disbelief; they ask us to pretend we've all had weed-whacker lobotomies.

The acting is terrible,with Connery, at his lowest common denominator, stealing the show.

In short, lots of action and wild stunts, lame comedy and a story that makes no sense whatsoever.

It would be much more fun to see the film makers point fingers at each other over why this sequel is so bad.
