DVD Review: Highlander (30th Anniversary Edition)

Highlander – 30th Anniversary Edition (StudioCanal, 15)

Incredible to think that the time travelling fantasy action favourite, Highlander recently reached its 30th anniversary and to celebrate StudioCanal have fully restored the cult classic in 4K with brand new bonus material.
The Battle to end all battles is taking place in New York City as the last remaining Immortals gather together to fight to the death: decapitation alone can kill them, and the victor alone can lay claim to “The Prize”. Amongst the contestants are Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert), who fought his first battle in 1536 on the highlands of Scotland, swordsman Ramirez (Sean Connery) who mentored MacLeod and taught him the ways of the immortals, and the evil and brutal barbarian Victor Kruger (Clancy Brown).

Far from been just a reissue the Highlander DVD sports some great extras including interviews with Christopher Lambert and director Russell Mulcahy as well as directors commentary and deleted scenes.
