Highlander II - Die Rückkehr


Connor Macleod and Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez return in this all action sequel to Highlander (1986). The year is 2024, and MacLeod is now a mortal old man. However, the world has become a very dead planet since the creation of "the shield", an artifical ozone layer, of which MacLeod supervised construction. It turns out that MacLeod was banished from a distant past with his mentor Ramirez. MacLeod's old nemesis from the past (General Katana) travels into the future to kill Connor once and for all. MacLeod calls upon the spirit of Ramirez to help him defeat Katana, before Katana kills him. MacLeod is also aided by Louise Marcus, an environmental activist that believes the ozone layer as repaired itself and "the shield" is no longer necessary.
