(it) wrote: Wow, bad? awful? confusing? The acting was terrible, the plot and story were werid.
(mx) wrote: The movie was sensible. The political overtones to it made perfect sense. Considering the fact that it seems like a low budget movie, the theme plot was rather strong and dealt well with. Its a story of a homosexual college going kid, who belongs to a politically influentil family. It portrays a realistic fix of the mire on might feel stuck in while accepting what one really is and what one others expect want him to be..!! More than the homosexual plot to it, the concept of a tyrant father and ignored son and the after effects of it was kind of realistic, rather than cliche.

(ca) wrote: Taking his turn as the propheted secret service agent, Pierce Brosnan rocks the tuxedo in the swaggering show of confidence which is none other than Goldeneye. By far his best movie, Brosnan breaks the 'average' Bond streak with an exciting, poignant, and substance-filled action movie... a real treat.

(au) wrote: Considered by director Terry Gilliam to be a part of his "Trilogy of Imagination" (which also includes Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen), Time Bandits was one of the director's first fully-formed films. He had co-directed Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Jabberwocky had established his particular style, but Time Bandits is when Gilliam was running on all cylinders, creating highly visual worlds and stories that, while not all were box office smashes, helped usher in a unique voice in the film world at large. Time Bandits, in all probability, is the most audience-friendly film that Terry Gilliam has ever made. What seemed on paper to be nothing more than a children's story transformed on screen into a grandiose fairy tale that is easily accessed by both children and adults. The film is akin to many of the dark fairy tale films of the 80's but rises above them because of its sheer originality and utter delight. The simple tale of a band of dwarfs who have stolen a secret map from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson) allowing them to jump through portals in time with the aid of a young boy never comes close to pretentious or underwhelming. Zeal is dripping from every corner of the frame as the group jumps from one time period to the next, encountering the likes of Napoleon (Ian Holm), Robin Hood (John Cleese), and King Agamemnon (Sean Connery) of Greece. Hot on their trail, however, is someone who wants the map more than they do, by the name of Evil (David Warner). Also a part of the ensemble are Michael Palin (who also co-wrote the film), Shelley Duvall, and Katherine Helmond (the latter of whom worked with Gilliam again in Brazil). Keen eyes will also spot Jim Broadbent as the TV show host. With beautiful cinematography, a wonderful orchestral score, great performances, and a story that is both light and dark enough to reach a wide range of people, Time Bandits is a magical film. It's a bit of a clich to say, but it's the kind of film that the whole family can enjoy. It managed to do eight times its budget in 1981, and I imagine that if it were made today, it might have even done better.
