As of 2019 however this is to date Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s last film that he’s directed, while he still remains involved in Madhouse he has recently gone onto to be storyboard artist for works such as Btooom! and One Punch Man.
The English dub for this does have some good talent assembled but it lacks direction in areas where emotion could have been brought to the forefront. You have Alistair Abell as Colin McLeod who has only two settings of emotion, morose and stoic and on occasion shows some level of anger, Nolan North gives a rather okay performance as Marcus Octavius and sounds really withdrawn from much of what goes on but this was Nolan North at the time when he was still building himself up as a dominant force in voice acting for video games and here he’s doing okay, Debi Mae West who voices Dahlia as a hot-headed but brave action girl much like how she played Meryl in Metal Gear Solid series except here character isn’t developed nearly as well so it’s hard to get invested but she does okay. Highlander acting veterans such as Scott McNeil & Jim Byrnes show up to provide voices rather well in this, although their line delivery is off and their characters are very much disposable their presence here as brief as they are makes a small difference. Additional talents like Janyse Jaud, Kathleen Barr and Ogie Banks for the roles they play feel underwhelming and not well directed here and it’s sad when you’ve heard them in better works where their presence really shines.
Even if you don’t know anything about Highlander or even if you are not a fan of the series alone, this is worth a few watches.
