It does not age well

I don't know how I never noticed before, but the fight scenes in the original Highlander movie are really shitty. o_O

EDIT: In the Highlander universe, no one gets wrinkles. Seriously. Connor's wife when she dies? White haired, but perfectly flawless skin. The lady that he rescued in WWII and is now his secretary? Cheeks as smooth as a baby's bottom. I almost want to live in that universe just for that.

EDIT2: The special effects in this movie are hilariously bad. How bad? In the final epic scene where Connor gets the quickening, you can see the wires holding him up while he's supposedly flying.

EDIT3: I love that Sean Connery is playing a character born in ancient Egypt and living in Spain, but doesn't even bother trying to change his accent in any way.
