Critic Reviews of "Twelve Monkeys"Chicago ReaderMay 27, 2011
While all of Gilliam's movies are worth seeing, there's a fair amount of his designer grimness here mixed in with the cabaret comedy.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Neither as visually compelling as Brazil nor as emotionally gripping as The Fisher King.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Gilliam gives the material a lunatic poetry of his own, but remains impervious to the requirements of narrative pacing.VarietyAugust 12, 2005
Dark and somber like Blade Runner, this sci-fi is a spectacular mess, a convoluted film with too many ideas for its own good, blending (among other things) the virus thriller with the post-apocalyptic genre.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
There's always overripe method to his madness, but in the new 12 Monkeys Mr. Gilliam's methods are uncommonly wrenching and strong.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Bruce Willis, in an eruptive performance of startling emotional intensity, stars as Cole, a prisoner tagged for an experiment that may get him killed.The Moving Picture ShowAugust 06, 2014
Constantly surprising and consistently unsettling.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 19, 2012
One of the best-looking and smartest sci-fi films of the modern era.Cinema SightAugust 16, 2011
Terry Gilliam has seldom been more inventive or more compelling.Film4May 27, 2011
Gilliam goes on to deliver a movie that is not only rich in visual detail but offers an involving, occasionally baffling storyline and builds the tension to positively unbearable levels during the final reel.Three Movie BuffsMarch 04, 2011
Gilliam's greatest all around film.7M PicturesMarch 02, 2011
speculative fiction at its best in that it doesn't just trifle with science fiction concepts, but rather tells a grander story with characters and world disasters
