From Terry Gilliam, director of Time Bandits and Brazil, comes The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, a spectacular epic fantasy quite unlike any other film ever made.

Just who is Baron Munchausen? Liar? Rogue? Madman? Or the greatest superhero ever to battle and triumph against unbeatable odds? Did he really ride through the air on a cannonball, slay a three-headed griffin, journey to the moon, all before breakfast? Helped and hindered by a cast of, quite literally, thousands including Vulcan, Berthold and many more, the indomitable Baron succeeds in overcoming every obstacle to face his final greatest challenge: Death itself!

There's never been a film remotely like this but then there's never been a hero to compare with the Baron...
  • Commentary with Director Terry Gilliam & co-Writer/Actor Charles McKeown
  • "The Madness and Misadventures of Munchausen" - An all new 3 part documentary on the making of the film
  • Storyboard Sequences with all-new vocal performances by Terry Gilliam and Chris McKeown

 This is not an HD version it is upscaled SD

If you want to watch an HD version of this film do not buy this one. It looks like upscaled SD with lots of grain. The sound track quality is not that good but again the film is a timeless classic.

 BEST FILM EVER!!!!!

This is the most sureal and amazing film ever, picking up perfectly on childish imagination. Cast and crew are fantastic as are the sets. Terry Gilliams best work and a timeless classic.

 An all time classic!

I loved watching this film when I was little kid, and I still love it as an adult. If you are into the Monty Python films then this is for you! It is also a fun silly fantasy adventure for all ages, for the whole family to enjoy. This film is a classic, and is one of Gilliam's bests.

Despite the grain, the HD picture is very sharp and all the special effects look great.

 Criminally underrated

Now notorious for being a costly failure, the amazing thing here is that Gilliam was able to bankroll this film in the first place because it is totally bonkers. It is also messy and ramshackle and incoherent but that happens to be part of its charm; you never quite know what to expect. Neville is suitably bombastic as the titular baron who is known for a few economies with the truth and Gilliam frontloads his film with madcap incident after madcap incident. A headless Williams and a quick-to-anger Reed are good value in that regard. Impossible not to get caught up in its eccentricity, plus it is very funny.
