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.

Film: Still the greatest kids' film ever made, and with the slightly sharper picture, even more small details to discover.

Extras: For some reason, the commentary is absent from this version, although you do get a brief documentary that wasn't included on the DVD release.

 nostalgia heaven!!!!!!

this film was a major part in my life as an 8 year old, or roughly that age as far as i can remember....however it was probably put upon us far too early for our age group but we didnt care.....it was and still remains as random as anything ive ever seen, and as good a story and as far fetched an adventure as a child needs to know....and so it enters the blu ray field after what, 20 + years?! i have just officially become old but i dont care!!!!
this film is awesome and long may it live thanks to bluray - commmmeeeee onnnn!!!!!!!!

Anyone know which subtitles are available on this classic? (Mostly I'm concerned if there might be Danish ones)

 Great Film...Grainy, Dirty Transfer

I love this film....for the price, it's a must have. A wonderful film for all the family and still as exciting and funny as it's ever been. This film gets 5 out of 5.....but the transfer....3 out of 5.

There is a lot of grain and in some sequences the print is really dirty.. It was shot on 35mm so I can only presume that it was shot on a higher ISO (500?) at low light....or it's just a really bad transfer...I was a little disappointed with the quality. Great film and a bargain, but not one to show off your Blu-Ray system...

 Great film

John Cleese as Robin Hood - "Have you met the poor?"

Its the best scene in the whole film and its still hillarious years later!
