Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Fresh: Lambert, with his beetle brow, broken nose, and vaguely crossed eyes, remains an amiable oddball presence, and Sean Connery radiates charm and nobility in a bit as an elder immortal who shows Lambert the rules of the game.
Fresh: A truly heroic stomp through time and space.
this is the directors cut
Good news, this version is the directors cut. I was surprised when I started playing the movie, so do not hesitate to buy this film if that is what you are looking for.
Directors cut is by far the better movie
In the directors cut they don't try to make this an interplanetary epic they stick to planet earth. They don't try to change our understanding of the game. While I will still admit that it is the weakest movie of them all at least the directors cut is more in sink with the overall story. I'll just wait til iTunes gets that one before highlander 2 will grace my IPad. This is not meant to be negative about the actors only the overall structure of the movie.
