YMMV: Highlander: The Search for Vengeance
  • 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.
    • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped‎: 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.
  • Iron Woobie /Jerkass Woobie: Colin.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: While not a sequel per se, most people agree that this film is better than anything that came before (or after), with the exception of the 1986 original and the TV series.
    • 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.
