“Highlander: The Search for Vengeance” is an anime film based on the “Highlander” franchise. Colin MacLeod is an immortal warrior who battles a fellow immortal, Marcus Octavius. His desire for revenge has taken him to the future, where Marcus has crushed the world underneath his feet. He has a virus which will wipe out Mankind unless somebody stops him. Will Colin get his revenge or will his very desire doom them all?

The story is fine, but the main problem with it is that while the idea that revenge is a bad thing is great, it isn’t executed well. It might have worked better if the antagonist had reformed, showing that there’s no honor in killing a guilt ridden man. Another example could’ve been that the protagonist has no qualms about screwing innocent people over in his pursuit. The animation is lovely. Honolulu ‘Highlander’ fans may want to check it out.
