“From the dawn of time we came…moving silently down through the centuries. Living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of the gathering, when the few who remain will battle to the last. No one has ever known we were among you…..until now.“
Opening Monologue Highlander (spoken by Sean Connery)
This monologue comes from the opening sequence of the Russell Mulcahy film Highlander and is spoken by Sean Connery who plays the character of Juan Sánchez Villalobos Ramírez in the movie depicting the struggles of a group of immortals battling for the prize which would be bestowed on the last man standing.
The movie features special effects aplenty, swordplay, great one liners and perhaps best of all Queen’s soundtrack (most of which – but not all – came from the It’s a Kinda Magic album)
With the exception of the highly aberrant second movie which was uniformly panned as abysmal the Highlander franchise was a decent movie and TV series franchise. The original of course was the best.
