Highlander is a 1986 fantasy-action film directed by Russell Mulcahy. The movie tells the story of Connor MacLeod (played by Christopher Lambert), a Scottish swordsman born in the 16th century who discovers he is one of the immortal Highlanders. Immortals can only be killed by beheading, and they must fight each other in a deadly competition known as “The Game” until only one remains. The film alternates between two timelines: Connor’s past in 16th-century Scotland, where he learns about his immortality, and his present-day life in 1980s New York, where he faces a powerful and malevolent adversary, the Kurgan (played by Clancy Brown).
