  • Should Ramirez have survived into the present day?


    I mean, had Ramirez not been killed by the Kurgan, would it have been neat or beneficial to have Ramirez show up again during the Gathering in the first film, in New York (even if it would still end with the Kurgan taking his head... just in the present instead of the past)?

    Strictly talking about the first film. Yes, I know he came back via dubious methods in H2.

    No he shouldn't have.

    Teachers are supposed to be surpassed. It would serve no purpose to have them along for the ride.

      Well that's a tangle. It was such a good movie. Not sure how Connor could have suffered so much loss if Ramirez hadn't been one of them.

        Strictly holding to the first film, Ramirez is a throw away character only noteworthy past the 'first teacher' aspect because he's played by Sean Connery. Take away the semi-sacrificial nature of his death, and his value decreases even more. So I guess I'm saying no, but because you specifically said to only consider the first film, I went with "Ramirez sucks." Honestly, I don't really feel that way, but literally every scene I like him in is from Highlander 2, so it seemed fair.

          Takk, you are awesome! I think by series' standards he might have survived. In the series, there are many more Immortals. We had two older Immortals who knew that the men who had come for them were their betters and would defeat them, Hamza against Xavier, and Ashe against Clay. They knew it, and they intended to avoid their deaths by avoiding their enemies.
