To call it larger than life is an understatement - it's downright gigantic in every department, from its exuberant performances to its pulsating colors and unstinting energy. Even with all this going for it, though, the movie doesn't quite succeed.
April 7, 2008
A gaudy chimera with no other reason for its existence than to be flamboyant to no great end.

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a fairy tale of large heart and limitless vision. Like its maker, it staunchly defies the exigencies of reason to pursue a bigger vision of imagination.

Superbly photographed and marvelously lighted, this remarkable set piece of art direction and stunning decor cures many of its own ills, including a screenplay that meanders grandly.

Its intellectual intent and the physical production seem disconnected, leaving a film that bedazzles the eye even as it bedevils the mind.
October 25, 2010
Like many of Gilliam's cerebral, impish films, Munchausen toes the line between rationality and fantasy, gleefully incorporating both into the same story.

This is a vast and commodious work, and even allowing for the unsuccessful passages there is a lot here to treasure.

A film that when it is good is very, very good, and when it is bad, it can be quite bad.

Terry Gilliam's third fantasy feature may not achieve all it reaches for, but it goes beyond Time Bandits and Brazil in its play with space and time.
October 18, 2008
A fitting final installment in Terry Gilliam's trilogy begun with Time Bandits and continued with Brazil.
