Highlander
UK/USA, 1986

Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery
Directed by Russell Mulcahy

  

Born in the Highlands of Scotland in 1518, Connor Macleod is immortal. When he is wounded in battle but does not die, he is banished from his village. He meets another like himself, a flamboyant 2437-year-old Egyptian from Spain who teaches him swordsmanship and the ways of the immortals. Modern-day New York is the location of The Gathering, where Connor and the few remaining immortals must battle to the last for The Prize, as "there can be only one".

Apart from the fact that one of the main characters is an ancient Egyptian in a Spanish disguise with a scottish accent (played by Sean Connery) there is nothing else of Egyptological interest in this film.
