5.0 out of 5 stars High level action and fantasy. July 16 2004
Format:VHS Tape
HIGHLANDER was undoubtedly among the best of the medieval/fantasy/Dungeons and Dragons sort of movies that proliferated in the 1980s. The choice of the brooding Christopher Lambert was perfect for the part of the Highlander, Conner MacLeod. There is a quiet intensity to his acting, and it works well here. Sean Connery, as his mentor and fellow-immortal, Ramirez strikes just the right balance of swashbuckling and seriousness. His acting is perfect. (So what else is new?)
For me, however, Clancy Brown's Kurgan steals the film. His physical features and bug-eyed grin are dead perfect! And his way over-the-top performance, at times, makes you a little afraid of his character, but he makes you laugh, as well. The confrontation between Kurgan and Conner in a church is a great balance of wit and tension.
The battles in Scotland, at the beginning of the film, and the mayhem in the streets of New York City at the end are priceless. My favorite moment: Kurgan steals a car and takes Conner's love interest for a ride. As he careens through the potholes and traffic, he quietly sings "New York, New York". Now I know where all our cabdrivers take their lessons from. HIGHLANDER is a great piece of quality mind candy that actually tackles some deep issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars The One and Only Nov. 30 2002
Format:DVD
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, yet another bigger, more expensive edition of Highlander is on DVD. Highlander: That ridiculous over-the-top blending of sword and sorcerer fantasy and science fiction with a modern day action film that featured Christopher Lambert and rub-your-doubting-eyes-all-you-want-it's-really-Connery, Sean Connery. Connery is only a supporting player in the film, but the fun he seems to be having is not only utterly infectious it also injects the film with the needed charisma and energy it needs to make the goofy thing worth watching.
Highlander makes little logical sense, but tries to pretend it does with various conflicting explanations that never cover plot holes or explain why competitors would be so helpful and friendly with one another if they knew they might have to face each other in a duel to the death.... But never mind logic.. this is action packed pick out the continuity errors-fun isn't it?
UCLA student Gregory Widen (who went on to write and direct Prophecy and was one of the writers of Backdraft) wrote Highlander, as his senior thesis and attempted to create a fantastical legend about a chosen group of immortals who walk the earth for centuries, preparing for duel to the death sword battles with each other. Mostly set in 1986, it offers the impressive spectacle of swashbuckling sword fights taking place in parking garages, modern streets and rooftops all cut like music videos. There's a couple of flashbacks to merry old England and the Scottish Highlands that are done quite well (yes, that's the same castle used here that's used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail).
My favorite sequence is still the wild ride Kurgan (Clancy Brown) takes Roxane Hart on toward the end of the film.

By Kate
Format:DVD
First, I must confess that I rented the movie because my favorite music group, Queen, was doing the soundtrack. But, unlike Flash Gordon, this movie actually has Queen songs right in it! But, as I watched this movie, I began to get really involved in the story. Christopher Lambert(who, in my opinion, is really hot in this movie!) plays Conner Macleod, a Scottish warrior who has been alive for over 300 years. He has come to NYC to battle the last remaining immortals, for there can be only one! The guy who plays Kurgan freaked the sh*t out of me! He was generally scary! I think one of the reasons I loved this movie was because of the underlying love story. I almost cried when Nash lit the candle in the church! Anyway, if you love Queen as much as I do, you'll love to hear their music throughout the movie. Even if you don't like Queen (I can't imagine why you wouldn't, but...), you'll love this winding tale of horror, love, and a kind of magic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mythical and fascinating sward magic Dec 11 2003
Format:DVD
This film is fascinating in many ways. I have the European version with the flashback to the second world war but without the killing of Yung Dol Kim by the Kurgan, which explains the discrepancy in one scene where a paper title announces : HEAD HUNTER 3 POLICE 0. In fact there has only been two killings by the Kurgan at this moment, and will never be three in the film anyway. But it is a marvellous film built on constant flashbacks, very well done all of them, and this navigation through time is thrilling. Then it presents us with a plot that is of interest for our over-famous post-modern world. A new species of humans is born by some mutation. These humans are immortal but they are supposed to fight to the last and to their death for only one of them to survive. This last one is granted special powers over the world. This is a new version, a post-god version of God, as if our imagination and brain could not survive and work properly without a supreme being of some kind. We are here dealing with an essential dimension of human civilization : men need a supreme principle, on a higher level than themselves, to be able to manage the world, manage its knowledge and science, manage its peace and violence. But this archetypical approach goes even farther and reaches a mythical level. We are dealing with a species that pushes its roots deep in the oldest human civilizations : the Celts in Scotland, the « archaic » societies in Siberia or Russia, old Japanese societies, etc. This new species is founded on two elements : they have to fight in duels with broad swords and they can only die if they are decapitated.
