Critic Reviews of "Highlander 2: The Quickening"
Variety Staff VarietyFebruary 25, 2009
Audiences unfamiliar with the first film will be hard put to follow the action [from a story by Brian Clemens] as it incoherently hops about in time and space.
Rita Kempley Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Mulcahy and company don't ask us to suspend disbelief; they ask us to pretend we've all had weed-whacker lobotomies.
Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Highlander 2: The Quickening is the most hilariously incomprehensible movie I've seen in many a long day -- a movie almost awesome in its badness.
R. L. Shaffer IGN DVDNovember 06, 2010
Feels more like a brainstorm exercise than a feature length film.
Brian Orndorf BrianOrndorf.comNovember 03, 2010
Highlander 2 is a mess. Nevertheless, damn it, it's a gorgeous mess...incoherent, but a joy to stare at for 105 minutes, watching as a franchise is epically flushed down the toilet.
Kevin Carr 7M PicturesFebruary 18, 2005
Another substandard sequel.
David Nusair Reel Film ReviewsAugust 02, 2004
...[not] as bad as it's been made out to be over the years.
Christopher Null Filmcritic.comJuly 13, 2004
Incomprehensible doesn't even begin to explain it. This movie is the equivalent of the "Hey look over there!" gag. You look, and the guy you wanted to beat up has run away.
Carlo Cavagna AboutFilm.comNovember 26, 2003
The director's cut elevates this misconceived sequel from one of the worst stinkers ever to merely dreadful.
