Was it “There CAN BE only one” or “There SHOULD BE only one”?
Why I Saw It: The series is one of the more infamous in the history of film with a strong fan following, and I’ve never seen any of the films. Not a single one, until now.
Memorable Performances: I’ll probably never forget Sean Connery’s performance. Not because it was great, but because it was an interesting character. I’ll probably also remember Christopher Lambert’s involvement because the only other thing I’ve seen him in was Mortal Kombat.
The Regrettable Aspects: The acting. By almost everyone in almost every scene that didn’t involve a sword fight.
Would I watch it again? Maybe. The fight scenes were cool, and the story was interesting, and some of the bad acting was almost laughable. I didn’t love the film, but it wasn’t an entirely terrible viewing. From what I’ve heard, I’d rather watch this again than watch Highlander II.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10
Potential Nominations for Film Quest ’12:
- You’re kidding, right?
Lastly, I’m also looking into different formats for my reviews, because quite honestly the long versions with paragraphs won’t cut it… and most people just skim through them anyway. Suggestions / critiques welcomed.
