...[This] entertaining fantasy flits between centuries of film-making styles with abandon...

Jun 1, 2001
Rating: 4/5 -- 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. Full Review

It's a lot of utterly preposterous fun, even if it doesn't quite hang together. Full Review
Time Out
Jun 24, 2006
Rating: 8/10 -- A bit clumsy in spots, but Highlander is a thoroughly entertaining action-fantasy picture. Full Review
IGN DVD
Nov 6, 2010
Rating: 2.5/4 -- 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). Full Review
Creative Loafing
Oct 2, 2016
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Connery, on the other hand, is a welcome sight. It is director Russell Mulcahy's style that doesn't work here. Full Review
TV Guide
Jun 5, 2007
Rating: 2/5 -- Since none of the characters makes sense even on the movie's own terms, Highlander keeps on exploding for almost two hours, with nothing at stake. Full Review

Product Description:

Russell Mulcahy's original saga of immortal Scotsman Connor Macleod, one of a race of immortals who can only be killed when beheaded with a sword. After living in peace for four centuries, he is challenged by an old enemy named Kurgan.

During a fierce sword battle in the 1500s, Connor MacLeod, a simple Scotsman known as a poor fighter, is mortally wounded -- but he does not die. MacLeod learns from the mysterious Ramirez that he is of a race of immortals. These rare knights never age and never reproduce, they can only meet death by the blade of another of their kind. Leaping back and forth through the centuries, MacLeod once again meets the evil Kurgan who nearly killed him 500 years ago.

Production Notes:

  • Produced by TESE.
  • The Collector's Edition laserdisc (Cat. #LV-25895) includes the director's cut of the film, which is actually the 6-minute longer version released outside the U.S. in 1986. Also included are a running film commentary, by the producers and director Russell Mulcahy, and a CAV supplement containing press releases, background profiles, text and pictures from lost scenes, trailers, and more.
  • Although "Highlander" made only $5 million at the U.S. box office, the film grossed almost $70 million overseas. It went on to spawn two sequels, an animated children's television series, a live-action television series on the USA cable network, a series of books, a "Highlander" Web site, a CD-ROM game and a huge merchandising catalogue.
