They can get Lambert to play the main role.

On the one hand, Highlander's kinda crap, so it could probably be improved significantly by a remake.

On the other, it somehow manages to not be crap because of all the random aspects (like the fact it has a soundtrack by Queen) that come together to make it special, and I doubt that could be replicated.

It just would have been SO much better if they'd airbrushed out the harness cables from the last fight scene in post production, even a little bit.

Otherwise, for 1985, it wasn't a bad film.

I liked the film. I liked it more because of the soundtrack, but it was still a good film.

It prompted me to watch this again...

Stunning scenery and without doubt one of Freddie's finest vocals. It's definitely in my top 5 Queen songs, if not 'the' top.

I agree completely with everything you say here.

I'm ignoring Elessar's attempt at humour!

I think Lambert would be really good in a Highlander film! And he could do a song with Queen and they could make a video with bits of the film! Who's with me?

I wouldn't speak too loudly if you don't want to see it happen...I could easily see this as the excuse they need for them to record a song together....

A comedian should never explain his jokes! We did get it, it just didn't deserve a :lol: it was more of a :P, or even a :?.
