Highlander 5-Film Collection

Don't lose your head. For die-hard Higlander fans comes the Highlander 5-Film Collection. Including the original Highlander and its sequels, the collection follows the adventures of immortal Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and his sword fights with other immortals battling to become the last of their kind. The first film, which sets up the universe and character to follow, is the best of the collection and is really what you are paying for (although I do enjoy Endgame as well).

While goofy as hell, and at times entertaining despite its best efforts, Highlander II is problematic for the changes (afterwards forgotten) it made to the franchise. The Final Dimension brings back an immortal (Mario Van Peebles) from Connor's past, and Highlander: Endgame and Highlander: The Source incorporate TV's Highlander Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) into the movie franchise (the latter is nearly unwatchable).

As with most of these types of collections, you will get some basic features but less than the special editions of previous separate releases.

[Lionsgate, $19.98]
