Behind The Scenes: Sean Connery & Director Russell Mulcahy On The Set Of HIGHLANDER

Without a doubt one of the finest cult films of the 1980s, Highlander is a wonderful action-fantasy romp that pretty much works on every level. Yes, it might be a little dated thirty years after its initial release but it’s a great product of its time, and nearly every element in Russell Mulcahy’s 1986 fantasy works –  it’s a close to perfection as any movie of this ilk can reach.

Highlander may have spawned four sequels and two television shows, an animated series and the constant threat of a remake. None of them matter though – because there can be only one – and that’s this cracking 1986 original. If you’ve never seen Highlander, go out and get it.
