Time Bandits
Available on Prime Video, Max
A spellbinding adventure comedy from the makers of The Life Of Brian, Time Bandits is a wonder of imaginative storytelling and brilliantly realized visuals. Directed by Terry Gilliam and co-written by fellow Monty Python collaborator Michael Palin, Time Bandits boasts an all-star cast including John Cleese, Sean Connery, Ian Holm, Ralph Richardson, Shelley Duvall, and Peter Vaughn. When young, imaginative Kevin (Craig Warnock) is abducted by a band of mischievous dwarves, it's the first step in a long and fantastical journey through time. Locating holes in the space-time continuum, the dwarves, with Kevin in tow, plan to traverse the ages looting the fortunes of the richest and most famous figures in history. Their bizarre and hilarious adventures bring them face-to-face with the likes of King Agamemnon (Connery), Robin Hood (Cleese) and Napoleon (Holm) but, unknown to the diminutive time bandits, their exploits are being observed by the spectre of the Evil Genius (David Warner).
