Read it and Weep

Highlander II: The Quickening is the rare sequel that's so much worse than the original that the series pretends like it never happened.

Chistropher Lambert and John C. McGinley race to the bottom for the worse voice ever, Sean Connery hits on women in the creepiest way ever, and Michael Ironside blows up a hobo for no reason.

By far the movie's biggest problem, however, was that the production's insurance company assumed creative control of the film. Don't believe what you've heard: just because you're good at insurance, doesn't mean you're the next Brett Ratner. Actually, maybe that's exactly what that means.

Luckily we have a lot of help. Kseniya and Matt from I Love Bad Movies bring their enthusiasm, wit, and for some reason, a willingness to sit through Highlander II.
