About this movie


Classic poster

(from Wikipedia)
Highlander is a 1986 fantasy action film directed by music video pioneer Russell Mulcahy and based on a story by Gregory Widen. It stars Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery, Clancy Brown, and Roxanne Hart. The film depicts the climax of an ages-old battle between immortal warriors, depicted through elaborately-interwoven past and present day storylines. Despite having little success in its U.S. release, the cult film launched Lambert to stardom and inspired a franchise that includes film sequels, television spin-offs, and an upcoming remake. The film's tagline, "There can be only one..." has carried on throughout said franchise, as have the songs provided for the film by Queen.
