Great Cast!
13 January 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Why? Lets see: Common German TV Stars - check. Uncommon international Star - check. I couldn't believe it when I heard that lambert signed on for a German TV movie but now that I saw him in it I hope he will do more films in Germany.

okay, he looked VERY old but hes still a serious badass. the way he was introduced was great and you could tell from his scenes with legend adorf that he had fun shooting that movie.

okay the chemistry between him and ferres is bad but never mind its the highlander for petes sake! I hope that they will do more movies like that in the future maybe with a modern topic this time. (this whole save the whales thing is very 90ies) great cast, good movie!
