In the future, Highlander Connor MacLeod must prevent the destruction of Earth under an anti-ozone shield.

I’m with ScottyMcD on this one. I first saw the original Highlander when I was about 17 (ten years ago…ugh) and I thought it was pretty damn cool. A bit cheesy, yes; not the greatest acting, yeah; but it had a lot of style. After seeing the first film I thought I would check out the sequels and I was just like…wtf? For a while there I had trouble watching the original Highlander because I kept thinking about all of the so-called "back story" that we were shown in the second one. Thankfully I have been able to put most of the movie out of my mind and am now able to enjoy the original again. All I have to say to those who have seen the first movie and none of the sequels is that I wish I were you.
