Product Description

Amazon.ca

This 1986 fantasy/action thriller has since spawned two sequels, a popular syndicated TV series, numerous comic-book spinoffs, and a loyal (if somewhat oddly obsessive) following of fans. Directed by music video veteran Russell Mulcahy (which explains the dizzying camera work), the original theatrical release made hash of an intriguing story about an "Immortal" from 16th-century Scotland (Christopher Lambert) who time-leaps to modern-day America with his archenemy (Clancy Brown) in hot pursuit. It becomes a battle to the death (yes, Immortals can die), and Lambert seeks survival training from an Immortal mentor played by Sean Connery. Dazzling, energetic, and altogether confusing in its original form, the film has since been released on video, laserdisc, and DVD in this revised widescreen "director's cut," with additional footage, director and producers' commentary, a photo and artwork archive, the original trailer, and an official time line of the film's evolution from script to screen. A must for Highlander fans ... and you know who you are! --Jeff Shannon

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, and a question was answered April 17 2012
By Pat
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This has always been one of my all time favorites,though I can't see why they made sequels. I first saw it because Queen made the soundtrack, and I am a fan. I had never seen the director's cut and it answered an important question. Towards the end, as Connor leaves his assistant in his office, he tells her "Hey, it's a kind of magic" (which is the title to the corresponding Queen album.) I never understood why he said that. A scene in this version answers the question. I'll say no more on this. The only thing that surprised me, though it affected my kids more than me, is that the Blu-ray only comes with an English audio track. It's not like they do not have enough room on a Blu-ray. They could dub it in 50 languages. I bought this in Canada (amazon.ca), so I expected a French track.

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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor Jan. 9 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Disappointed with this purchase, primarily because nowhere in the product description or packaging was it indicated that this 'Exclusive Limited-Edition SteelBook Blu-ray' was in fact the much-maligned 'Director's Cut' of the movie. I made the purchase under the assumption that i was finally getting a blu-ray version of the original theatrical release; it wasn't until the blu-ray was out of the package that the fine print on the disc identified it as the 'Director's Cut' (which has already been discussed at great length by other reviewers, so no need to carry on that debate). Gorgeous packaging, though...

Le film Highlander est arrivé en bon état conforme à l’annonce faite par le vendeur. Il s’agit d’un film ordinaire avec une histoire banal qui a peu d'intérêt je ne recommande pas ce film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality ok, aspect ratio wrong!!! June 9 2012
By *lord Allan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Well, I picked this one up for cheap, and that's about what it is worth, Picture quality is only ok, sometimes being all BluRay can be and other times closely resembling my original DVD (directors Cut) copy. This aside, the film is also in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, instead of the correct 2.35:1 that it should be. The DVD version is 2.35:1. Yes, another film that has been altered for what ever reason! So for the purists out there stick with the DVD or search for a better release, if one exists.
I truly love this film. The ratio difference doesn't bother me allot, as the film still works for me. But for the so so quality of the transfer, it only gets 3 stars.
Something to think on, before buying this one.
