In this fantastic voyage through time and space from Terry Gilliam, a boy named Kevin (Craig Warnock) escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarfs. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson), they plunder treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery)?but the Evil Genius (David Warner) is watching their every move. Featuring a darkly playful script by Gilliam and his Monty Python cohort Michael Palin (who also appears in the film), Time Bandits is at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire of technology gone awry.




  • A classic, no other way to say it!

    This is one of the funniest movies of all time! There's so much detail in the backgrounds with the Monty Python touch, you have to watch it several times to see all the different jokes packed into a single scene. A fun concept, with some special shout outs to the materialistic parents and the personification of evil. Truly inspired performances, with an outstanding script.
