It's easy to see why many love this picture (great premise, fine action scenes, a score by Queen, Connery) but just as easy to see why many despise it (cheesy production values, stone-faced Lambert, ludicrous supporting characters, thudding dialogue).

Highlander is the visual counterpart to rock band Queen (who supply a number of songs on the soundtrack) - big, brash and operatic filmmaking of the highest order.

Before it came to a thudding halt with a craven, creatively bankrupt franchise cash-grab, the rich world of "Highlander" - in all its bombast and bereavement - was, and is, worth getting lost in for two hours.

A bit clumsy in spots, but Highlander is a thoroughly entertaining action-fantasy picture.

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.

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?
