My Thoughts:
Still finding myself in the mood for Superhero stuff I decided on another animated movie. Basically after the last movie I felt like watching Wonder Woman as I know her best... meaning no flying! I enjoyed this movie just as much this time as I did the first time I watched it a few months ago. This movie is definitely heavier on the violence as well as some suggestive dialog. So it is not one for the kiddies... but I don't think it is to bad... I would say the teens on up would enjoy this movie. One thing I did find a little on the strange side is that you don't hear the name Wonder Woman till the end of the movie. But that is such a minor thing it doesn't matter in the least. The one problem I did have with this movie... and is true about all the animated super hero movies I have seen... is the short run time.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Length:1078 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1

Plot:
She's roamed the world for 1,200 years, romancing kings, cavorting with thieves, and using her preternatural street smarts to evade the blades of countless evil Immortals. Now, the shrewd and sexy femme fatale, Amanda Derieux, has achieved true immortality in awesome digital format.

HIGHLANDER: The Raven Collection on DVD celebrates all 22 daring and provocative episodes in the high-action HIGHLANDER spin-off series with a 9-disc collector's set that beautifully preserves Elizabeth Gracen's smart and captivating portrayal as the morally conflicted Amanda and her high-risk adventures with hunk detective, Nick Wolfe (Paul Johansson).

Loaded with newly created Bonus Material, each disc boasts behind-the-scenes audio and video commentary from cast and crew, including Gracen and Johansson, plus detailed Cast Bios, Series Trivia, Featurettes and a hilarious Blooper Reel.

With classic HIGHLANDER flourishes, like flashbacks, beautifully choreographed sword duals and electrifying Quickenings, The Raven Collection on DVD marks a must-have chapter for fans of the epic HIGHLANDER legend.


Highlander: The Raven
1.01 Reborn
Writer: Gregory Widen (Original Characters By), Karen Harris (Writer)
Director: Ian Toynton
Cast: Elizabeth Gracen (Amanda Darieux), Paul Johansson (Nick Wolfe), Torri Higginson (Claudia Hoffman), Patricia Gage (Lucy Becker), Michael Copeman (Carl Magnus), Julian Richings (Basil Morgan), James Purcell (Stanley Ferris), Robert McClure (David Hoffman), Hayley Lochner (Annie Hoffman)

This is a spin-off from the Highlander series with a minor side character from that series in the lead.
I really wanted to like this series. I enjoyed Highlander and a series about a female immortal could have been fun. I enjoyed Amanda on Highlander, but I didn't really like her in this series. As a matter of fact I never finished watching this first season. I can understand that it didn't survive to see a second season.
The pilot episode is okay. I enjoyed watching it to a degree.
