when i think of all the classic films i have yet to see i've gotta ask myself why i've seen highlander 2 so many times. don't get me wrong it's awful when compared to highlander though i do believe it to be the best of the sequels, probably because connery is in it (though his character really shouldn't be) and i do love the scene when conner comes out of the fire a young man again.

to be honest i don't really mind the hole zeist story with the renaged version they change it to a distant past (one with machine guns) it only digs a bigger hole for itself. this version puts this story back in place. at 2 hours it felt a little long and should be looked upon as a work print, with a little more work and cuts to the film i believe highlander 2 could be salvaged

before the film the editor warns regarding the quality of footage that's been added but it didn't distract from my viewing experience. the footage is inserted as well as can but a couple of times the extra footage disrupted the narrative but i'm glad i watched this edit.

The Highlanders II was a horrible movie, maybe the worst of the saga, including the new ones. For that reason, I think that it was a brave move from PhineasBg to try to do something with it.

I decided to watch the Extended Zeist Edition because I did not like the renegade version and I think I chose right. The film is still not bad and there are some points that are just stupid, but that is how this movie is and this fanedit could not have been better.

I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
Rating criteria: image quality, sound quality, 3x improvement, overall.
Image Quality: 8 of 10
Sound Quality: 7 of 10
Improvement: 1 of 10
Overall: 4 of 10
