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.
