Movie Summary

Director:
Terry Gilliam
Released:
1981
Rating:
PG
Time Bandits is Terry Gilliam's fantastic voyage through time and space, about a boy who escapes from his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarves. On their journey, they visit Napoleon (Ian Holm), Robin Hood (John Cleese) and King Agamemnon (Sean Connery), among other popular figures. It's a giddy, visually outrageous fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson and a satire on technology gone awry -- all wrapped into one adventure.
