*CompleteMonster: The ruthless Roman general [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist Marcus Octavius]] earns [[AntiHero Colin MacLeod]]'s eternal enmity by massacring his people and crucifying Colin's wife Moya to see their home destroyed. With Rome's fall, Marcus vows to recreate it anew in his hunger for a world of order and beauty, working for countless evil forces throughout history including the Nazis themselves. When he takes over a future New York, Marcus unleashes a virus with an 80 percent kill rate to keep the population in line, and when they resist his rule with Colin, opts for some "creative brutality" in sending his forces to decimate the remaining population while planning on unleashing an [[SyntheticPlague even deadlier strain of the virus]] to kill every living thing in New York before he finally takes Colin's head.

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: That being said, not wasting your life hell-bent on revenge to the exclusion of everything else all for a loved one who wouldn't appreciate you sinking to such depths, is a pretty good point to make.
* AwesomeMusic: The use of Music/{{HIM}}'s "The Sacrament" as the ending theme.

** A lot of this comes from just how ''loyal'' it is to the rules of the series. Everything from how one becomes an Immortal, to The Buzz when they near another, to rules like holy ground being sacred and only one to a fight, are all strictly honored by the filmmakers. Not to mention the animated medium really showing just how far removed from mortals Immortals are for the very first time.

* SpiritualSuccessor: A better animated format of the Highlander franchise than Highlander: The Animated Series.

* IronWoobie /JerkassWoobie: Colin.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: For all the film's posturing about Colin being selfish for being obsessed with revenge; it glosses over the fact that Moya betrayed his trust by drugging him, offering herself as a bribe to Marcus, and then strong-arming him into promising not to seek revenge despite the fact that she caused all of it through her own selfishness.

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped‎: The film's point isn't that vengeance is bad, it's that Colin has all that time on his hands, and he's wasting his life.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The film's view of revenge is blatantly one-sided to the point of being cliché and fails to consider that sometimes, it's justified.
