It's years since I have seen this movie but it gets better every time I see it. Can't wait to see number two.
Have enjoyed all the Highlander movies.
This is a must-see movie. But its not necessarily a must-love movie. Lambert is pretty awful: his Scottish accent is, well, French (at best). Connery's Egypytian accent is - on the other hand - Scottish. So you have to be a bit interpretive. The action sequences are generally laughable, and the style is very 1985 - so again, quite laughable. Enjoy?
I think it's fair to say that this80's movie hasn't dated very well at all. Still some memorable moments, but purely for the fans. Christopher Lambert was better as Tarzan I think, and may have used the same dialogue coach for this movie. The 80's fashions are fun to see, but movie-making has come a long way since this came out!
What can i say, at the time it was epic! Who doesn't love a good sword fight? Of course if you watch it now you can actually see the safety wires which lets it down but still its got a ripper plot and the idea is fantastic. A must see movie, just see it before you get too used to the graphics of today.
Great, i could watch it again..
A dated movie with poor special effects and unremarkable storyline however is interesting from a nostalgic point of view
a good sean connery movie
a fantastic movie , that you watch over and over and never view it the same way twice . anything with sean connery in fantatsic.
never see much of mr lambert these days
Easily Lambert's best film. Great soundtrack by Queen. Nice transitions backwards and forwards in time.
Not my style but hubby enjoyed it.
80's Cult classic from Aussie director Russell Mulcahy! Forget the aweful sequels, this movie is still outstanding and rocks with an awesome Queen soundtrack .
A worthwhile watch, but definitely not as good as I remembered. The plot has holes you could drive a truck through, Lambert's acting is weak (and his "Scottish" accent is dreadful), Connery isn't much better and the fight scenes are poorly choreographed and unrealistic. Such a great concept, just poorly executed. Still, you have to remember it was made 20 years ago.
There can be only one... and this is it, forget all the dodgy sequels this is the best by far. Great movie with a great cast. Sci-fi, action, love story all rolled into one great movie. Great music by Queen too.
It's getting a bit dated, but still a classic. Worth it just for Clancy Brown's performance as the Kurgan.
A truly epic story. There can only be one, and unfortunately this movie is it.
Don't think after you have watched this one and enjoyed it that you can watch the sequels for the rest of the story, they were all one or two star movies after this original fantasy.
An all round entertaining action fantasy movie, with a good story and some great actors.
This movie is a classic. The story..at the time (1980's) was original and very cutting edge. Wonderful story of good versus evil.
An immortal traveling through time and memories, Connor McCloud weaves a tale of heart break, redemption and ultimate victory
You know at the start what's going to happen at the end but you still watch it, I did and I enjoyed it.
