Critic Reviews of "Time Bandits"VarietyJune 05, 2007
When you can count the laughs in a comedy on the fingers of one hand, it isn't so funny.Chicago ReaderJune 05, 2007
The film is resolutely, passionately antiadult, yet much of the humor has an adult sophistication and edge to it; this is one kids' movie that doesn't condescend.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Gilliam fills the screen with bizarre images, and directs with a breathless ingenuity.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
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.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
A cheerfully irreverent lark -- part fairy tale, part science fiction and part comedy.ReelViewsNovember 14, 2002
Perhaps the greatest characteristic attributable to Time Bandits is its sense of invention. The movie does so many things, all of them well.Parallax ViewMarch 14, 2015
It's a strange and weird and wonderful mix of boy's own adventure, Python-esque humor, and grim irony, all wrapped in tall tales, ancient myths, and historical figures.CinemaniaDecember 30, 2014
Gilliam opts for an acerbic and often nasty tone that risks offending the very audience at which it purported to be aimed.The DissolveDecember 17, 2014
Time Bandits is one of Gilliam's more chaotic films, which is really saying something, but his six time-bandits fill the screen with fractious energy.Under the RadarDecember 16, 2014
As an adventure tale to enjoy with your kids, you could do much worse than Time Bandits - you just can't expect the depth of Gilliam's more adult works.Radio TimesNovember 22, 2013
Ex-Python Gilliam is one of the great conjurers of cinema, and this film is proof of his ample and unpredictable talent.People MagazineNovember 22, 2013
This is an enterprising project in free-form cinema; it's just not very entertaining.
