OK, so I may be a little biased on this one, being a Highlander fan from way back...
...Even so, I'd say that this is a good one to sit down and watch at least once. My eyes were glued to the screen from start to finish. The effects were not over-done, but the 'blocking' / choreography was outstanding!

Now had my co-workers not been talking through about a third of the film, I'd have been even happier...

This is my very first post, so, Hello, all!!

I completely agree that this is a fantastic movie, all by itself. But also, out of all the Highlander movies, I think this is the best. I thought that it had more of the feel of the show (more realistic, less epic), and I always preferred the show for that reason...

Plus, this one had Adrian Paul in it!!

OK, I have to comment here, I am a big Highlander fan.

Did everyone notice, they practically stated that Highlander 2 never happened. The movie starts out with Conor saying that no one knows where the immortals came from, that they simply ARE.

I liked that, since 2 is terrible anyway. The directors cut is a bit better, but I still don't like it.

Highlander 4 is good, and I hope that they make another.

Welcome Rachel! Any chance you are filling Randy's shoes since he moved from Erie PA to Greensburo NC? (He always had small feet )
