I thought that the special effects were pretty cool in the first one. I havent seen the second one yet, but im not sure if i want to.

Save yourself the 5 minutes your going to spend watching it before you turn it off and Don't watch it. Worse than Rocky V

Highlander! There Can Be Only One!
(which means no crappy sequels all which were really bad.)
and no TV series
and no tv\movie tie in with both MacClouds
because as Sean Connery said
and this applies to watching all the sequels
"it hurts"

Best thing about the first Highlander was the music. That is just about it for me.

The first one rocked.
The second one sucked
The third one sucked
The fourth one could actually have been very good if they had just fixed a few problems.

I didn't see much of the TV series, as i don't have sky, but what i saw did seem pretty good. The endig to the first series was great. The series did a good job of rounding out the mythology and creating some consistent rules that numbers 2 and 3 had destroyed.

I was going to buy the 5 disc collectors series, as it was under 20 quid. But nowhere seems to have it in stock at the moment. Im interested to see the alternate versions of numbers 2 and 4 as well to see if they fix them at all.

THe cartoon series was terrible, but then whoever thought of making a kids tv series out of a film about people CHOPPING OFF PEOPLE'S HEADS deserves to be shot. :D

I've seen the movies and the show, but mainly because Queen wrote and played the theme song.

Most essentially: Christopher Lamberts hair...oi vey...

well, the hair, and the holy ground killing having an underwhelming effect, and the bad guy killing the other baddies so easily, and the terrible sfx at the end.

Donnie Yen rocked though, and his swordfight with Duncan was excellent.
