    Yes I got it from Connerys character and his character alone

    Interesting. And you didn't get that impression from Brown's character, who was three thousand years old?

    Not really...Brown did a fun villain, but I didn't get that feeling that he had been around for a long time

    I always thought Highlander was a cool concept. And I'll admit sometimes I'll replay the intro to the tv series several times. So awesome!

    Also why does everyone think of Ryan Reynolds being the new Connor MacLeod?

    I'd rather they try getting someone actually Scottish, or at least UK, for the role. I can't imagine RR with the accent.

    There are plenty of bankable UK actors.

    They should hire an unkown actor (who's a good actor) to play Conner and big names to play the supporting cast.
