When Ramirez and the Kurgan are fighting in the tower, there are some scenes in which the Kurgan hits the walls with his sword and stones from the walls fall into the tower. In one of these, shortly before Heather starts to scream again, one can see a crew member behind the wall. He is probably the one who pushed the (prop-)stones inside. If you want to see it: the crew member is on the right side of the screen, a little above Ramirez. See more »
MacLeod, I was born 2,437 years ago. In that time, I've had three wives. The last was Shikiko, a Japanese princess. Her father, Masamune, a genius, made this for me
[shows MacLeod his Samurai sword]
in 593 B.C. It is the only one of its kind... like his daughter. When Shikiko died, I was shattered. I would save you that pain. Please... let Heather go.

It does exactly what a movie is supposed to do! It lets your imagination run away with you. It lets you forget all your worries for a time. The music is Fantastic!!! It is haunting and relaxing at the same time. Sean Connery is of course, wonderful in his part. Christopher Lambert has a way of making you feel what he feels. The scenery is utterly gorgeous. The special effects are very well done.Makes you want to live forever and at the same time glad that you don't! Worrying about getting your head cut off sure makes our bills seem like such tiny little problems! Great entertainment!! A must see for the fiction fan.
