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.

Connery, on the other hand, is a welcome sight. It is director Russell Mulcahy's style that doesn't work here.

Lambert, with his beetle brow, broken nose, and vaguely crossed eyes, remains an amiable oddball presence, and Sean Connery radiates charm and nobility in a bit as an elder immortal who shows Lambert the rules of the game.

It's a lot of utterly preposterous fun, even if it doesn't quite hang together.

Highlander's plot is one of the most original ever filmed.

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

Since none of the characters makes sense even on the movie's own terms, Highlander keeps on exploding for almost two hours, with nothing at stake.

"There can only be one!" And that's one too many.

Another example of a decent first film that led to a mediocre series. Great performances from Connery and Brown.

A terrific idea, taken about as far as it can go. Why, oh why, did they start making sequels?

One of the all time greatest B-Movies!

Joins Pete's Dragon, Condorman, and Unidentified Flying Oddball in the category of films better remembered than re-watched.

Maybe it was the sheer audacity of the film's silliness that made it so popular or the brief, swaggering presence of Connery.

Lambert is likeable as the highlander of the title and the villain is quite memorable and steals the show.
