Your mind will feel violated after watching this film. I watched it twice and I'm still not sure if I got it! Brad is fantastic in it thought, worth a watch!
This is how Sci-fi should be
Couldn't get into this movies it is very weird. Didn't see it through but really amazed at Brad Pitt's acting is is amazing
Had a good story I enjoyed this Brad Pitt was great.
This turned out to be an above-average sci-fi story with an emphasis on a tight script rather than special effects. Brad Pitt is good although a bit over-the-top - still, it IS a Terry Gilliam movie. At first, it appears a bit rambling and confused, but pay attention, and the bits will come together like a jigsaw puzzle. Would probably be even better on second viewing. Similar to Looper (also with Willis) which it pre-dates by almost 20 years.
I enjoyed this movie. I've never seen Brad Pitt in such a role. He did such a good job,
Fun but with enough to keep you thinking
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Great acting from both Willis and Pitt and an interesting storyline.
The setup of this movie is promising: man returns from the future to get a sample of a virus. However, it just doesn't deliver. It's too rambling and disconnected with plot holes opening up the more you think about it. The plot seemed to be going nowhere but it became interesting only in the last 20 minutes, so stick with it. The apocalyptic and future sets were excellent as was the acting, but it's not a riveting film.
Thoroughly enjoyable, recommend as good viewing.
This is a fantastic movie. If you loved Lightning by Stephen King (book), you will love this.
Excellent movie with an original story and a vehicle to show Bruce can really act if needed.
It took me twice watching this movie to work out what was going on. From a movie I didn't like to a masterpiece in just one viewing. Sad ending, but you can't change the past.
A man comes from the future with a warning about a disease which is about to destroy civilization as we know it. Great set up. So why is the movie so BORING? And it is boring. It's just lots of useless running around to create the illusion of something happening and talking, talking and more talking - often about things we already know. Everyone does good work here except Terry Gilliam who plainly can't tell a story and the writers who couldn't give this idea a centre. Even Gilliam's usual visual flair seems to have desserted him - "Brazil" this ain't.
Somtimes the writers just leave to much unanswered at the end. It's a shame because the scenes of the underground earth of the future were good and the story generally was great, slowly coming together like a jigsaw puzzle. Willis and Stowe are terrific. Could have been so much more with a clue of what happens next. Probably one to watch many times to really enjoy.
not ur typical williss dvd,,bit to deep for me,,couldnt watch it twice
I'd love to see La Jetee, the film this is based on. Wonderful flick, especially the first two thirds or so. Brad Pitt showed he can act. As ever, Gilliam's visual feasting is ravenous.
very absorbing movie, loved it
Loved it!! BUT is a movie that requires your full attention Brad Pitt plays a good role (different) a movie not to be missed
Really enhoyed the movie. Gee Brad Pitt did a really great job here - wonderful lunatic! Slightly confusing (time travel stuff does it to me all the time) but very interesting. Worth the watch.
pay attention..you will need to to follow what is going on when you do it will grab your attention as you realize the possibility of this actually happening.
great movie, but dont get distracted
Bruce Willis at his sombre best. Brad Pitt as alway, revels in an off-beat character.
Very Disappointing movie, Many open ended threads with no connection with the story,If you like being inside a mental institution with crazy people screaming their heads off then this is the movie for you. Way to much Unnecessary violence
very twisted movie but brad pitt is one fantastic actor and played his part to the max. you can see what is going to happen but its worth watching till the end.
Loved it ,lot of action, not to be missed!
Although this movie has been around for a while, it stands the test of time pretty well. It can be a bit confusing so you have to watch it closely & may want to view again to make sure you didn't miss anything
Bruce willis at his best. One of the most interesting movies that I have had the pleasure of watching. Brilliant!
Great Sci-Fi / Timetravel movie, Bruce Willis stars as the time traveller from the future to stop the radical group called the 12 Monkeys, has Brad Pitt in as well. Well worth a look. Great.
Disturbingly bad viewing!
When the first scene is the end you know that you have a film where it is all about how the story is told rather than what happens, and there is no-one who can spin a visual yarn like Terry Gilliam.
A very unusual film. One that can be confusing to some up until the end. I loved it and have seen it many times. It's good, a great plot and I love end of the world thrillers. There is lots of time travel and intrigue. Brad Pitt is wonderful and very believable in his role, it's the best character he has ever played in my opinion. Has a cool soundtrack and some truly heart pounding parts. If you like thrillers that are part science fiction, rent this now.
I enjoyed this movie on several levels - it was a good mystery Science Fiction flick as well as a good plot and great acting from some excellent performers. Terry Gilliam seems to get the best out of the cast.
I enjoyed this movie. Great performances from Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt (he makes a great nutter). Left you thinking at the end! Give it a go!
Great movie, even better the second time.
An absolute masterpiece. This movie is complex and probably needs to be watched more than once to fully enjoy all the layers of the story
An old end of the world Si-Fi film yet its still a must watch, an unexpected twist at the end lifts it above the average.
One of Gilliam's best - a good follow on for any of you Brazil fans. Bruce Willis plays one of his better roles - a grunting toughster with a good mind and a cagey approach to his imprisonment and to his mission. Brad Pitt's character is delightful - where he plays a radical animal liberationist and nutcase - no really - a fruitcake kind of nutcase. Very entertaining. And there are some fun reality pradox conundrums for you to mull as the movie leaves you wondering...and yet fairly exhilarated. A few holes and "not believables" but overall a great filck.
Enjoyed this; so much better than the fifth element. If you liked it check out Brazil
