Highlander 2

 (1991)

Highlander 2 Blu-ray despite solid video and superb audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

The year is 2024, and the population of Earth are under the impression that the ozone layer has been totally depleted. Former Immortal Connor MacLeod is now an old man, reviled by the media for his part in the construction of a protective shield, which is now in the hands of a corrupt corporation. However, when a batch of evil new Immortals arrive on the planet, McCleod's powers are magically restored, and - with the help of his resurrected mentor Ramirez - he sets out to see if the ozone layer really has been destroyed...

For more about Highlander 2 and the Highlander 2 Blu-ray release, see Highlander 2 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Virginia Madsen, Michael Ironside, John C. McGinley, Rusty Schwimmer

Highlander 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Highlander 2 benefits from a substantial digital upgrade it received in 2004, and this Blu-ray's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 2.42:1) also does very well with the shiny new and improved special effects. While the CGI elements look sharp as a tack, often with bristling bright color, unfortunately the bulk of the rest of the film has a low budget, low contrast softness to it that robs a lot of the film of fine detail. This is an intentionally dark film, with even supposedly outdoor scenes bathed in shadows, and because of inconsistent contrast and black levels, there can be a tendency toward murkiness. Much like the film itself (and actually the video quality of the first Highlander), this is a maddeningly schizoid looking Blu-ray. Some of the close-ups are filled with excellent fine detail and beautifully saturated color. Some of the Blade Runner-light production design looks distressingly soft, especially in establishing shots, as does the matte painting that introduces what was in the original version the planet of Katana. This is a cup half empty, half full sort of outing, and your response to this Blu-ray's image quality will probably depend squarely on how fondly you think of the film to begin with.


Highlander 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Highlander 2 has a very good lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track that amps the film up considerably, at least from an audio perspective. Filled with excellently immersive sound effects and an appealing score by Stewart Copeland (not to mention source cues from imposing figures like Richard Wagner), Highlander 2's mix is fairly aggressive, positioning lots of discrete effects quite effectively around the soundfield. These can be subtle, as in the case of lapping water in the river around "Shield Control," or more blatant, as in the overwhelming static electricity noises that accompany MacLeod's absorption of other immortals' essences. Dialogue is crisp and clear and well mixed, though here directionality is somewhat lacking. There are a couple of inartful sound effects edits which I assume are a result of the massive tinkering this film underwent after its disastrous initial release. But the track itself is sterling, with excellent fidelity and impressive dynamic range.
