I have the theory that Highlander
was caused by Gregory Widen
wanting to write about people with long coats
fighting in present day New York
. He then had this excellent idea
fighting through different ages for a prize
The first movie was very good. Astounding visuals, very cool sword fights and Sean Connery. Later they had to ruin it with parts two and three, which were absolutely awful. At least the TV series were nice, even if they didn't even try to be coherent with the movie; they ruined it again by mixing up the original movie and the series in the fourth movie, which was bad.
