Even an immortal journey has a beginning.
The immortal journey of Scottish clansman Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) begins in Russell Mulcahy's legendary Highlander. When Connor discovers his true identity as a member of the legion of immortals, he embarks on a heroic journey spanning continents and centuries . . . eventually landing in modern-day New York City. Connor faces his ultimate test when other immortals begin to appear and challenge him to an epic showdown where only one can claim victory. Connor's fate continues in Highlander 2, when in 2024 Connor must rejoin with his friend Ramirez (Sean Connery) to face a future world endangered by ozone depletion and corporate greed. Directed by Russell Mulcahy, Highlander and Highlander 2 are the modern classics that spawned three movie sequels, a TV series and millions of warrior fans worldwide. This is Highlander!
