Neither as visually compelling as Brazil nor as emotionally gripping as The Fisher King.
May 14, 2003
Distinctly lacking in sentiment. Give me cataclysm, but at least act like you care.
| Original Score: 2/4

In its frantic mix of chaos, carnage and zoo animals, 12 Monkeys is Jumanji for adults.
April 17, 2002
The acting is good, and the visuals are sharp. But at two hours long, they should have just settled for six monkeys.

A movie that is about as much fun to watch as getting your teeth pulled.

..less an essay on the nature of madness than a crazy person's poem. It is wild and beautiful and deeply disturbing all at once.

A dark and gritty sci-fi thriller, 12 Monkeys stands apart from other sci-fi films, due to its unique and twisted concept on the future of mankind.

January 1, 2000
A pretentious and self-indulgent piece of oppressive and cheerless filmmaking, but for mavens of time travel stories it delivers the goods.

One of the best-looking and smartest sci-fi films of the modern era.

Gilliam has taken on a conventional Hollywood sci-fi thriller with big stars and turned it into his own rough beast.

While all of Gilliam's movies are worth seeing, there's a fair amount of his designer grimness here mixed in with the cabaret comedy.

12 Monkeys seems to go down smoothly without compromising anything or dumbing itself down.
January 1, 2000
This is action movie-making at its most suave.
