Quite simply one of the finest films ever made. The Handmade team along with a healthy Pythonesque influence deliver a film that is just magical for kids and adults. One of my favourite ever films.

Born from the brilliant minds of Monthy Python's Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, Time Bandits is a British masterstroke in fantasy adventure.

When a young boy's wardrobe shapeshifts into the gateway of another world, he finds himself embroiled in a series eccentric encounters with legend's most random figures; Napoleon, Robin Hood and ancient Greek leader, Agamemnon.
There, backed by an arsenal of guerrilla dwarves, he must overcome evil forces, quantum leaps in time and 1980s suburban conditioning in order to save history, the present and the future.

Loaded with astutely observed, rapid-fire humour, this critically acclaimed smash-hit remains one of Britain's most-enduring ensemble comedies.

Boasting music by George Harrison, who co-produced the film alongside writer/director Gilliam, it stars Academy Award-winners Sean Connery, John Cleese and Jim Broadbent, plus co-writer Palin, in a classic - and timeless - comic clinic.

Thankfully for us in the UK the version released here by Optimum has a different and significantly better (though still not fantastic by any means) transfer than the US Image Entertainment one.

So I would buy without hesitation

The second link is to a review of the Criterion release, not the one on offer. Still gets a bit of a kicking for picture quality though.

Gonna have to stick it out with my old DVD of this... just can't justify the outlay for a shoddy transfer.

With Bluray you'll get a much clearer idea of what an invisible barrier looks like!

Great film!

Is this part of the cure?

According to dvdbeaver.com/fil…htm this version (Optimum) has the best image but the Anchor Bay R2 has the best extras.

"Don't touch it , Its Evil ! " BOOOOM ! One my favourite films of all time . So many great moments like the Robin Hood scene with the guy ripping peoples arms off arm wrestling and the spitting competition . "Yes Master , thank you master !"

voted hot but i will wait for another releaase of it on Blu Ray and maybe better quality version then probably a long wait too

Never seen, this. bought on the basis of the positive comments here.

Not sure why so hot. Obviously, brilliant film. But it's been this price at Play.com for ages.

I don't rate it much to be honest. I suppose everyone has their own tastes. I found the characters to be annoying and the plot line a bit suspect. If you like Terry Gilliam films then you know what to expect and you will love this.

My fav film

The First video i ever hired and one of my favourite films.
Ordered this morning, when there was plenty of stock.
