In the future, Highlander Connor MacLeod must prevent the destruction of Earth under an anti-ozone shield.
The production team, as well as Christopher Lambert, were reluctant to do this movie because they had felt they had delivered a wonderful movie with the original, and did not want to do a sequel, because the original movie made money, and they needed to come up with a good story before going ahead with it.
They were both dead before the car stopped. I'm amazed they got as far as they did. Gosh, I've never seen a mess like that. They must have taken about a hundred bullets or so.
Conner MacLeod: One hundred and eight.
Ramirez: One hundred and twelve, myself.
Conner MacLeod: Aw, come on. ...
Ramirez and MacLeod enter the prison with a car. The guards shoot the car with machine guns from all sides. MacLeod's friend Louise Marcus, in the trunk of the car, survives unhurt.
All UK releases are cut by 32 secs to get a "15" rating to remove shots of a nude woman being attacked by thugs and to reduce scenes of bloodied faces during the tube train sequence.
