(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.

Quick Tip by . November 16, 2010
Rock score by Queen, Frenchman Christophe Lambert playing a Scot, Scotsman Sean Connery playing a Spaniard + beautiful Eilean Donan Castle. May appear a bit dated to the modern viewer, but it will always be up there with the best!
