Highlander: Search For Vengeance



Will Highlander never die (as a franchise?)

Original movie – fantastic

Sequal – panned but I feel is still worth watching

Highlander 3 – Pointless remake

Highlander 4 – Hmmm

Highlander TV Series – Good, but could be hit and miss


From revolutionary anime director Yoshiaki Kawajiri (The Animatrix; Vampire Hunter D; Ninja Scroll), writer David Abramowitz (Highlander The TV series; Highlander: The Source), animation supervisor Kevin Eastman (co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Manga Entertainment comes HIGHLANDER: SEARCH FOR VENGEANCE, a brand new feature-length anime addition to the ever-popular Highlander phenomenon.

After five feature films, an animated TV series and two live-action TV series, the latest member of the MacLeod clan hits the screen with a brand new edge thanks to the unique visual stylings of anime wizard Kawajiri and the team at Madhouse Studios.

A one thousand year quest is about to end and the patience of one immortal man who has endured loss and pain for a millennium is about to be rewarded?n

A lone warrior, Colin MacLeod has travelled through the ages, endlessly searching for a fellow immortal, Marcus Octavius, the man responsible for killing his lover, Moya, on the Celtic plains tens of 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 is none other than Marcus Octavius, whose despotic plans for the future include the mass murder of the city’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 encounters with each other on the bloody battlefields of history, neither MacLeod nor Octavius has managed to emerge victorious. Will the remnants of New York prove to be the final battleground as these two immortals once again come face to face?

In HIGHLANDER: SEARCH FOR VENGEANCE, writer David Abramowitz continues the Highlander saga in fan-pleasing fashion with a thrilling and epic storyline that brilliantly recalls the spirit of Russell Mulcahy’s original 1986 movie.

HIGHLANDER: SEARCH FOR VENGEANCE will be released on DVD (?6.99) by Manga Entertainment on 9th July 2007. Special Features include: East Meets West Part 1; Interview with director Yoshiaki Kawajiri; photo montage; original teaser by Madhouse Studios.
