‘He fought his first battle on the Scottish Highlands in 1536. He will fight his greatest battle on the streets of New York City in 1986. His name is Connor MacLeod. He is immortal.’
Russell Mulcahy’s iconic 1986 action fantasy is back on the big screen for Father’s Day.
After he recovers from a fatal wound in battle, members of his clan in the village interpret his survival as the work of evil and banish him. He later finds out the truth from swordsman Ramirez (Sean Connery) that he is a member of a legion of immortals. Connor lives peacefully through the centuries until 1985, the time of The Gathering, where the remaining immortals will come together to do battle until only one remains…
With dazzling special effects, one of the most memorable villains in modern cinema (courtesy of the incomparable Clancy Brown), a quintessentially eighties vision of the neon lights and rain soaked streets of New York City and an epic soundtrack by Queen, Highlander is a feast for the senses and the perfect saga of swordsmanship for Father’s Day.
