The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs.

Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin’s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)?

At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.

Consistently excellent

Total :


I've bought several items from Zavvi and every time I have, it's been simple. I order, I pay, I get an email and then it arrives. With Time Bandits there seemed to be a stock issue, but even then I was informed every step of the way what was happening. Zavvi prices and variety is amazing and the services is exceptional.

A Gilliam classsic!

Total :


A very entertaining and funny movie, although not really a kids film (although sometimes advertised as such). Next to "Brazil", probably my favorite Gilliam movie, but you really have to dig his style to enjoy his films I guess. The packaging is awesome and "Arrow" have done a fantastic job with the picture quality and the massive bonus material! A worthy edition of this cult film!

Best the movie was ever on you screen. 5.1 audio, very good transfer, different then all the other versions. Optional English subtitles and lots of extras make this release the version you need to get. Recommended viewing for this cheap price.
