“I got something to say! It’s better to burn out, than to fade away! Huh! Ha! Huh!” So goes the philosophy of the Def Leppard-paraphrasing Kurgan (Clancy Brown, in a truly scary performance), a brutal warrior who’s looking to kill his fellow immortal, Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) — there can be only One, after all. Their current battle takes place in modern-day New York City, though they’ve been at each other’s throats (literally — the only way to kill an immortal is via beheading) for centuries, as we see in flashbacks featuring Sean Connery as MacLeod’s mentor, Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez (yep). This undeniably strange, grungy and hokey fantasy film spawned a legion of fans that continued to grow despite each subsequent Highlander movie being worse than the one before it. Highlander‘s a helluva lot of fun, even if it’s impossible to take it seriously for even half a second — and that’s an even shorter amount of time if you’re an immortal.
