A bit clumsy in spots, but Highlander is a thoroughly entertaining action-fantasy picture.
OK fantasy adventure film that has achieved cult status to many.

Great concept + sharp-edged weapons + Connery = enduring fantasy classic.

- Connor MacLeod: I don't like boats and I don't like water. I'm a man, not a fish!
- Kurgan: There can be only one!
