Cast & Crew
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.
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.
A cheerfully irreverent lark -- part fairy tale, part science fiction and part comedy.
Perhaps the greatest characteristic attributable to Time Bandits is its sense of invention. The movie does so many things, all of them well.
