The immortal Highlander was on a journey for a fight for his life, the only way his immortality could be ended would be for his head to be removed, gruesome sounds I know, but nothing gory in this 80s movie.
In the end, "There can be only one", a battle through time for the ultimate goal, "the prize"!
Highlander may have had four sequels, firstly the awful 2nd movie with its storyline that the "immortals" came from another planet, thankfully the "Renegade Version" was released some years later on DVD that was a much better cut of the film.
And if it comes to the Highlander movies there can be only this one. Forget about the other.
Clancy Brown as Kurgan is woth the money all by himself. "Nuns. No sense of humor!"
One of my all time favorites!
Only wish they'd have thought about prequels back then.... as a sequel just couldn't work (and it really didn't)
