In the future, Highlander Connor MacLeod must prevent the destruction of Earth under an anti-ozone shield.
The fight scene between MacLeod and Katana on top of a moving truck was intended to be filmed during production, but when the film's completion bond company took over, the scene was scrapped.

Throughout the high-speed subway scene, as the camera cuts back and forth from inside to outside the train, the passengers are flying towards the back of the train yet in one shot the passengers can clearly be seen sitting calmly behind Katana.

A 108 min. Director's Cut, titled "Highlander II: The Renegade Version", is available in the U.S.A. on video and features 16 minutes of footage not included in the theatrical release.
