There can be only one! In 1536, Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) - a Scottish Highlander - is seemingly killed by The Kurgan (Clancy Brown) on the battlefield. Now, in 1985, Connor lives under the alias of Russell Nash, hiding in plain sight as an antiques dealer while defending himself from dangerous swordsmen intent on cutting off his head. See, Connor is an Immortal trained by one of the greatest Immortal swordsmen of all time: Juan Sanchez Ramirez (Sean Connery). Immortals are drawn together to battle against all other Immortals by the mystic force known as the Gathering, until only one remains... "Highlander is the visual counterpart to rock band Queen (who supply a number of songs on the soundtrack) - big, brash and operatic filmmaking of the highest order." - Adam Lowes, CineVue
