Jul 08, 2016This movie started out really weirdly and about a third of the way through I almost turned it off. But after about a third of the way through the film starts filling out in the story and keeps you guessing about if the reality Bruce Willis' character is living is real or not.Patrick W Super Reviewer
Nov 02, 2015Pretty good but it pales in comparison to its source material so much. And honestly, I just simply don't like Gilliam's direction.Kyle M Super Reviewer
Aug 01, 2015Most time travel stories are hard to understand but this one just doesn't give the viewer any chance of understanding for a long time, We are forced into being spoon fed the plot in small doses and none of it makes much sense for a long time or fits into what's happening on screen at the time, Plus the very misleading name of the film will only be a giant middle finger to people trying to make sense of the plot, Having said that it makes the crazy story more exciting it's also very unpredictable, All the cast were great but I did enjoy Brad Pitts character more than any, It had a great ending that worked well with the dark mood of the film, It won't appeal to many but people that will watch it and can understand it will love it.
Apr 21, 2015Well thought out, though still possessed of some issues, 12 Monkeys is a film unlike anything else Terry Gillam has done before or since, a neat sci-fi that endears itself to almost all who watch it (myself included), regardless of what could be said about it objectively.
