5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and underapreciated, 6 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Highlander [DVD] (DVD)
I thought that the way in which the director transitions from modern day (well 1985) New York to the Highlands of Scotland in the 16th Centruy was done particularly well.
The flashbacks give you real understanding, at the time you need them so that there are questions to be answered, but so that you are not left in confusion. You gain a real feeling and understanding for Connor Macleod's life. And his character is developed as well as you could hope for a mainstream film of 1985. In fact, better.
Christopher Lambert does amazingly well at pulling off a Scottish accent, especially taking into account that he could not speak English at all before beginning this film.
This is an original and unique film that has unfortunately been destroyed through many a terrible spin off. If you try to ignore and forget that there is anything but Highlander 1, the original, then this film should be remembered. It is one of a kind, covering the genres of action, love, pain and questions if we could truly deal with living forever. It's definately worth watching.
Like I said...just my humble opinion

i agree on all points but one - there was 1 worthy sequel - and only 1. Highlander Endgame used some unused archive footage from Highlander i think, the story was very good. And the villain, brilliantly played by Bruce Payne (i think) was one of the most chilling bad guys i've seen in a movie like this. It was a well put together sequel that wove the TV series and the original movie together. Decent movie. All the other sequels sucked horribly.
