Highlander (1986)

IMDb plot summary: An immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his immortal opponent, a murderously brutal barbarian who lusts for the fabled "Prize".
Directed by Russell Mulcahy. Starring Christopher Lambert, Roxanne Hart, Clancy Brown, and Sean Connery.

I enjoy campy movies, so I was pretty hopeful for this one. I really like the premise and I had tons of fun with the over-the-top fight scenes, but the movie gets bogged down in lengthy exposition and uninteresting mystery solving. It makes the movie feel longer than it is, and I spent a lot of it just waiting impatiently for something to happen.

2.5 stars.

Flickchart: #1105 out of 2167, below The Fourth Kind and above X-Men.
