This Brilliant movie by Terry Gilliam is an incredible adventure film involving Little Pirates, traveling through time and space, with brilliant effects and a great story. Check the awe inspiring performances by John Cleese, Sean Connery and Shelley Duvall.
Watch this movie and have a great time for the whole family, and remember that this movie was made before the film industry went digital, Impressive.
Time Bandits is a terrific fantasy adventure from the twisted mind of Terry Gilliam. A young british lad's bedroom turns out to be a portal for Time Travel, and one night he is visited by a pack of time travleing little wanna be thieves, and he ends up joining them as they move from one legendary historical setting to the next...The film has many well known actors who all acquit themselves well, but the antics of the little people robbing thier way through history is the show.
This is a clean, timeless film that will amuse adults and children.
Highly reccomended !!
I bought this movie that was one of my favorites back in the 80's so that I could enjoy it with my kids. It has many of the cast members from Monty Python (John Cleese, etc.) and follow some Little People that work for the "Supreme Being". These Little Folks steal a time map that allows them to becomc Robbers of treasure through time. They pick up a young boy by accident on there first trip out and the movie takes off from there. Plenty of Silly Python slapstick, Highly Recommended for Adults and Kids alike.
I bought this because I saw it in the theatres in 1981. It had stood the test of time. Some of the music is anacronistic but... it is supposed to be. This is a classic fantasy by Terry Gilliam. Wonderful humour and characters. John Clees's Robin Hood is wonderful. Sean Connery is a surprise. George Harrison is one of the producers and did all the music ecept for the song sung for Napoleon. It was as good as I remember.
I love fantasy like movies and this movie is all about fantasy. Cleverly mixed in with Monty Python humor. Midgets (who work for God) travel through time to rob the treasures of past empires using a stolen map. They eventually end up face to face with pure evil and a great battle. Great costumes and settings with an unusual ending. Oh! there is an appearance of Robin Hood, an Ogre, and Napolean.
