One of the worst ideas in the history of the movies. The original Highlander was the ultimate example of a movie that can never have a sequel. The story inextricably finished with absolutely no more room to explore the characters or their subsequent stories.

But there's a force in the world more powerful than The Quickening or The Prize. The Box Office. Presumably Fox made enough money to warrant this ill-conceived sequel before spinning the Highlander'brand' off into countless straight-to-video sequels and a cheap TV series.

You see, Connor and Ramirez aren't really a Scots warrior and an Egyptian lord. They're really (wait for it)... aliens from another planet!! They were exiled, which is how they came to Earth to fight in the centuries-long immortals tournament. But there's a whole new battle to fight - the loss of the ozone layer!

With long hair, still no charisma, and no plot to back him up, Lambert scrambles for something to do - just like the movie does.
