HIGHLANDER: THE SEARCH FOR VENGEANCE (2006 ANIMATED U.S. JAPAN) D: YOSHIAKI KAWAJIRI W: DAVID ABRAMOWITZ P: PETER DAVIS/WILLIAM PANZER
Feature-length spin-off from the live-action HIGHLANDER series is set in a post-apocalyptic New York City where an Immortal has scientists create a deadly virus in his towering fortress building while infected mutants try and survive in the subways and sewers below. His nemesis Colin (not Connor) McCloud ("of the clan McCloud") comes to town to collect his head, and befriend a hooker and a street urchin. Flashbacks highlight their battles across the ages. There are brief flashes of pulp fantasy art come to life, but this is mostly hogwash not worthy of your time. There had previously been a French animated HIGHLANDER series in 1994.
