Highlander (1986)

There can only be one, plus seventy points given to this film. So this was my first time seeing this movie after many people have quoted it and talked about how they loved it. I’m not exactly sure what people really love about it other than its campy B-Movie-ness. Some of the sword fights were cool and Sean Connery was a Spanish pretty-boy but that’s really all the best things I can say. Christopher Lambert was cool but he was impossible to hear with his accent and how quiet he spoke. The sound quality of the film was pretty horrible. Some of the special effects ranged for hokey to pretty good. The story is a bit flimsy and I still am not totally sure what the fabled “prize” really was at the end. It’s a good piece of entertainment but I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

71/100
