Time Bandits Reviews

October 22, 2018
The film lacks what Garland, Lahr, Haley, Bolger, et al, had in abundance: humanity and charm.
June 5, 2007
When you can count the laughs in a comedy on the fingers of one hand, it isn't so funny.
June 5, 2007
The film is resolutely, passionately antiadult, yet much of the humor has an adult sophistication and edge to it; this is one kids' movie that doesn't condescend.

Gilliam fills the screen with bizarre images, and directs with a breathless ingenuity.
October 23, 2004
Amazingly well-produced. The historic locations are jammed with character and detail. This is the only live-action movie I've seen that literally looks like pages out of Heavy Metal magazine.

A cheerfully irreverent lark -- part fairy tale, part science fiction and part comedy.

Perhaps the greatest characteristic attributable to Time Bandits is its sense of invention. The movie does so many things, all of them well.
