Highlander II

Synopsis: The second "Highlander" movie, again with Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. It's the year 2024 and all the ozone above Earth has gone. To protect people from dying, MacLeod helped in the construction of a giant "shield", several years ago. But, since there isn't left anyone Immortal after MacLeod's victory in the previous film, he has stopped being an Immortal himself. Now he is just an old man, until one day some other Immortals arrive on our planet. You see, the Immortals come from another planet...

Remember, Highlander.


[ Wind Blowing ]

Free men of the planet, hear me.

We gather together in

secret for the last time.

You suffer under the yoke of General

Katana's rule for the last time.

And you stand without a

leader for the last time.

Will you lead us, Ramirez?

No, I'm not your leader.

But because I see with

eyes different from yours,

I see a man...

with a great destiny before him.

Who is he?

Show him to us!

Let him show himself.

[ Electricity Crackling ]

YES. You.

[ Electricity Crackling ]

[ Crowd Murmuring ]

We are now as one.

How do we start?

Not we. You.

And you start with Katana.

[ Explosion ]

General Katana's attacking!

[ Crowd Shouting ]

[ Woman Singing In German ]

[ Ramirez's Voice ]

Remember the rebellion?

The cause is still just...

and still yours.

[ Explosions ]

Break ranks!

Get more men!

[ Orchestra:
Opera Continues ]

[ Swords Clanging ]

My friends in here remind

me of you and Ramirez.

So deadly in their own

environment, yet...

[ Chuckles ]

so tame and servile in mine.

Maybe they're just waiting.

Waiting for what?

For you to get careless.


Maybe they are.

But as of tomorrow, waiting won't

be an option for you, will it?

You sure?

[ Squealing, Bones Cracking ]

[ Laughs ]

[ Orchestra Continues ]

Let's get on with it.

The punishment for rebellion is death.

Judge them guilty, and I'll

execute them here, now.

You forget yourself, General Katana.

As you well know, for many years we have

exiled those rebels and criminals...

who, like you, possess

this unholy immortality.

Therefore, I sentence you

both to this same exile

an exile into the future.

- What?

- Silence, General Katana!

In that distant future, you will face

other Immortals in trial by combat...

from which only one can survive.

And, as is your way,

you will die only when your

head is cut from your body.

- Will we be together?

- Well, not at first.

But we are joined in a way

that can never be broken,

not even by death.

When you need me, you'll

only have to call my name.

I'll always find you.

Finally, the last one to

survive will have a choice.

Choice? What choice?

Grow old and die in the future...

or return here with his

freedom and faith restored.

[ Muttering ]


Now go, and remember,

there can be only one.

[ Electricity Crackling ]

[ Both Groaning ]

Okay, Mr MacLeod, the show is over.

[ Chuckles ]

I thought so too, Charlie.

I really did.

[ Thunderclap ]

[ Program Theme ] Good evening and

welcome to TSC's nightly report.

Today's satellite readings

from above the shield...

confirm that highly dangerous

levels of ultraviolet radiation...

continue to bombard the planet in

the absence of the ozone layer.

But here below the shield

we are protected and safe.

At a press conference held earlier...

the corporation's chief financial officer,

David Blake, denied growing rumors...

of a management shake-up.

Alan Neyman, president of TSC,

was unavailable for comment...

and he seems increasingly isolated.

[ Dial Tone Beeps ]

Shield Corporation.

May I help you?

Alan Neyman, please.

Who may I say is calling?

Tell him it's a friend.

Tell him it's MacLeod.

Please hold.

Thank you.

I'm sorry. He's not accepting

any calls at the moment.

Any message?

No, no message.

Thank you for calling.

Thank you.

Hey, grandpa!

You got some change for

the oxygen machine?

Hey! Hey, you cheap f***!

You deaf or what?


You're MacLeod, aren't you?

So what?

Yeah, right. So what?

Okay, okay. Come on.

We're out of here!

- Let's go!

-- Come on, guys! Forget it!

Let's go! Move!

What was that?

What was what?

I heard something.

I'm calling it in.


[ On Headset ]

I heard something. You see anything?

I don't see nothing.

Could be fish.

Fish live in the lake.

Not in this lake.

Yeah? Well, I've seen 'em.

It was a fish.

[ Man ]

Come on, Louise. Let's do it.

Here it is.

[ Beeping ]

[ Seal Bursts ]

[ Beeping ]

We've got 30 seconds to

get a clear reading.

- [ Beeping ]

- I'm going into the computer.

- [ Beeping ]

- Blue alert!

[ Shouting, Chattering ]

-- Check your monitor!

- Three-zero-point-four-four!

-- [ Beeping Continues ]

- Impossible. Radiation levels can't be normal.

- Go to red!

-- [ Alarm Blaring ]

Come on, Louise. Keep moving.

But you don't know what this means.

You can tell me about it later.

Go, go, go!

Shoot! Shoot!

[ Alarm Continues ]

Let's split up!

[ Lounge Jazz ]

[ Man ] A hurricane hits

Your house is gone

The parakeet flies away

You don't get the raise

you've been counting on

Got gamblin' debts to pay

But you're in

What now, gentlemen?

Isn't that your friend

MacLeod, General?

He's getting older,

but he's still alive.

I know that! I'm not blind!

Good. Then you can also see that

he hasn't made his choice yet.

He still has time to come back to us.


[ Katana ]

Corda! Reno!

Where are you?

There you are.

I want you to leave for

the future immediately.

Find MacLeod and kill him.

But I thought you said MacLeod

was mortal and will never return.

Do me a big favor, Corda.

Don't think.

He's an old man now.

He'll be dead in a couple of weeks.

I don't care.

He is a fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, a corresponding fellow of the British Academy, and an honorary fellow of the Associazione Internationale di Studi sul Mediterraneo e l'Oriente..

Bellwood was involved with a fieldwork project in the northern Moluccas islands of eastern Indonesia, involving joint research with Indonesian scholars and Geoffrey Irwin of Auckland University. Their work yielded cave sequences covering the past 35,000 years, with very clear signals of an Austronesian presence commencing after 4000 BP.Bellwood conducted the ARC Discovery project from 2014 to 2017 in which they focused on the migration of humans with regards to the Asia Neolithic time period. Professor Bellwood is now recently retired but he is still open to advise anyone anxious to do research in the East and Southeast Asia Neolithic especially relating to the migration of humans which is what he focuses on. more…
