    It's one of those movies I really wanted to like and really wanted it to work but somehow it just doesn't and I couldn't.

    Time Bandits is a fun, humorous, and exciting children's fantasy adventure that is in equal measures fantasy and comedy, supporting a great, lovable cast, incredible costume designs and special effects, as well as an intriguing story that has the charm of a family movie and the wit of a mature filmmaker, making this fantasy-comedy an enjoyable and fascinating adventure into time, space, and whatever lies beyond.

    I'm a huge Python fan, yet I found this boring and dull. Saw this when it came out at the time and was extremely disappointed.

    Typically Gilliam, this is adult-kid, clever, original, dated, odd, more often silly than funny, imaginative, not always nice film that can't be dismissed out of hand.

    One of the best movies of all time. I love this movie. My kids loved it too but it is not a children's movie by an stretch.

    Mehâ¦it what I would describe this. It is considered a classic, but not one you should see. For a kid's movie it's not bad but while the adult humor is in it, it's not that impressive. I give credit to the set pieces, they were original and creative, having barely any CGI in it at all. The story is impressive too, having the same qualities. The characters are enjoyable too, each one cool with a trait that makes them special. But still, with all these good things, I never found it to be a masterpiece. Being a British film, I couldn't understand the dialogue half the time so that was rough. Sigh, I feel sort of bad that I didn't fully enjoy this movie like some people did.

    Everybody involved in the making of this film is a time bandit as they have created a significant waste of your time. One of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. (First and only viewing - 2/1/2019)

    This is 1 of the 2 great films Sean Connery had starred in 1981.
