"Highlander" by Yojimbo

A race of immortals who have been living amongst us through the centuries are destined to fight to the death to claim "The Prize". With its formula of large men with phallic weapons lopping each others heads off in modern day New York City to a Brian May guitar riff, Highlander is one of those films that could only have been made in the 80s. The "modern day" scenes have actually aged rather badly thanks to some ropey effects, TV standard photography and dodgy score, but the real joy of Highlander is in the brilliant concept which is only really explored in the best parts of the film; the flashbacks. These are done so very well, and the presence of Sean Connery as Connor's mentor raises the film above its otherwise dubious pedigree. There's great chemistry between the stars and Clancy Brow...

A cult classic that fizzles

"Conner Macleod" (Christopher Lambert in his most famous role) is unlike any other man. He is an immortal, born in Scotland in the early-1500's. Four centuries later, he is in New York City, as an antique dealer who the police suspect him for murder in the underground parking lot under Madison Square Garden as a professional wrestling show is going on in the "World's Most Famous Arena."

Now, falling in love with an antique weapons expert who the police hired in the case he is wanted in connection with, he must face the immortal (Clancy Brown) who almost killed him centuries ago.

This movie has completely missed the mark. Although the plot is pretty weak, it is well written. The script only touches the subplots, and barely expands them. One thing that could have been greatly expand...

Rating of
2.5/4
