4 out of 5. It's hard to be objective about Terry Gilliam's TIME BANDITS as it was the first of his films I'd ever seen. The production design alone is what makes this film so rich. I'm also a huge fan of time-travel and history so as a kid and an adult this really entertains. Part of Gilliam's trilogy of man, this film has the same imaginative and dangerous underpinnings as Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The characters are splendid and the acting with various cameos is a lot of fun. Easily the second-most quotable movie for me next to Spinal Tap.
