The first Highlander cinematic experience sizzles with energy, thrilling action sequences and electrifying sword fights and is played out at a frenetic pace by a renowned cast. Christopher Lambert gives a mesmerising performance in his most famed role as the Scotsman out to fulfil his destiny as an Immortal under the tutelage of the flamboyant Ramirez played for laughs with great panache by the enigmatic Sean Connery.

The year is 1536. Scottish Clansman Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) is mortally wounded in battle by a terrifying warrior - The Kurgan (Clancy Brown). When his wounds miraculously heal, Connor is cast out by the superstitious villagers to live a life of solitude.

Several years later Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez (Sean Connery) a nobleman of Egyptian / Spanish descent teaches him that like he and the Kurgan, MacLeod is an immortal who can only die by decapitation. He tells how the immortals are fated to duel down the ages to a mysterious distant time called "The Gathering", when the last few will battle for "The Prize".

So begins a romantic action-packed saga spanning four centuries to modern day Manhattan where a reign of terror grips the city and headless corpses baffle the police. The Kurgan has arrived in town as a one-man wrecking crew maddened by aeons of blood lust, slaughtering everything in his path searching for his ancient enemy - the Highlander. It all comes to a climax with an earth-shattering showdown between to two old foes against the spectacular New York night sky....

"Of course you are."
And of course this is just what Mulcahy hands us in the ultimate high-concept movie of the 80s-head chopping eye-candy.
It shouldnt work but it does on a glorious level of spinning camera work and outrageous swordplay. The fact that the Immortals finally converge on "The city that never sleeps" has a delicious post-modern irony. By winning the "prize" they can "wake up and be a part of it"-to finally join humanity.
Highlander at its heart is an incredibly human story. When most of us would want to live forever Lambert shows he wants the complete opposite; movingly portrayed with the loss of someone close to him through old age.
The narrative jumps between various moments in history with a graceful ease thanks to some beautifully inventive transitions. The audience is never lost and disbelief is suspended remarkably quickly.
Clancey Browns villain is a wonderfully camp maniac who delivers a menace equalled in the 80s only by Arnies original Terminator. Even Sean Connerys Spanish swordsman and mentors Scottish accent can be forgiven as he has lived thousands of years in countless places.
But it is Lambert who anchors the film with his initial fear and joy at discovering his new abilities; and later his world weary sense of burden they bring him.

On paper the film should never have worked, A French man playing a Scott, a Scott playing a Spanish guy. In a time skipping story of immortals that can only die when decapitated!
But the film works, this is because of brilliant flashy direction by Russell Mulcahy, a excellent music score by Queen and Michael Kamen and a entertaining story, not forgetting Clancy Brown as one of the best bad guys to grace our screen. There is no hiding the fact that the film is very silly, but that all adds to the fun. Lambert has never been better, and the flooded roof top sword play show down is fantastic.
Maybe not the all time classic as some make out, but a hell of alot of fun all the same.
The film still does have a kind of magic!
Shame about the sequels,
There will only be one!

Russell Mulcahy's hugely popular fantasy epic is back in a digitally remastered offering that proves, beyond question, that you can't keep a cult legend down!

Often imitated, and regularly disgraced by an ever growing line of lesser sequels, "Highlander", for the few of you out there who are not in the know, follows a mysterious band of swordsmen, immortal save for a decapitation, who must battle down the ages from Sixteenth Century Scotland to New York in the (then) present day (1985) until only one remains, the victor receiving a power that transcends man's wildest dreams.

Based on an original screenplay by fireman cum film student Gregory Widen, the movie was quite limply released to cinemas in the latter half of 1986, going largely unnoticed until it's spectacular resurrection in the home video market some months later, where it garnered a heady (no pun intended!) combination of enthusiastic public reaction and soaring sell-thru figures!

Years pass, beauty fades, but pure genius endures, and this visceral treat is no exception! From the opening power chord of the unforgettable Queen soundtrack through to the very last frame, the movie hits you with a power that is as confident and exciting today as it ever was. Granted, this isn't ideal entertainment for the Merchant-Ivory demographic, but if it's a straight-to-the-heart shot of pure MTV-inspired adrenaline you're after, then you could do one heck of a lot worse! There's even an ultimately doomed love story in the mix for the lovely ladies and their handkerchiefs!

A bone of contention that will always damage the credibility of any art created in the 1980's is that of it's being a product of the decade that taste forgot, and "Highlander" does, I'm afraid, fall victim to an excessive inclusion of peroxide hairstyles and polished leather, but, in it's defence, the plot's more contemporary scenes are referred to as taking place in that very time, so overlook the flaw, and keep telling yourself: "It's historical!"

Loud, colourful, flashy and fun..."Highlander" is, to quote the late, great Freddie Mercury: "A Kind Of Magic!"

This with out exception is a great film and one i dont belive ill ever get sick of. its a great story and even better now its got the revamp. clear and concise to the true meaning,though the sequals do draw it out after all "There can be only ONE" speaks for its self. you even can for give Lamberts for his sucky accent that seems to slip for time to time. One to get in my opinion!
