I've heard rumor of an exotic Japanese laserdisc version of Highlander that contains at least 10 minutes more than the 117 minute director's cut. I don't know if this info is true or not. Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone seen it or does anyone have it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The original Japanese version of the film was longer than the American theatrical release. It included the WWII scenes, and a few others. All of those scenes and more were restored for the Director's Cut that was released in the U.S.

I don't think there is a longer version than the Director's Cut, I think it's just confusion.

Correct. There are two versions. U.S. cut version and the version that played everywhere else.
