For a kids film this is pleasingly dark with Gilliam delivering as much classical fairy tale as knockabout comedy.

Gilliam fills the screen with bizarre images, and directs with a breathless ingenuity.

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.

It's amazing how the homemade special effects of this comparatively low-budget picture are still effective today -- even more so than many computerized effects.

More weird fun from Terry Gilliam

From the moment a white horse leaps out of a boy's closet and into his bedroom, this Terry Gilliam fantasy has you hooked. Breathtakingly original and with a surprisingly touching cameo by Sean Connery.

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

It's generally a lot of clever fun -- and if there is a Supreme Being, we can only hope he's like Ralph Richardson.
