The Future Is History.
Cole (Bruce Willis) is sent back in time to save the human race from a deadly virus that has forced mankind into dank underground communities in the future. Along his travels, he encounters a psychiatrist (Madeleine Stowe) and a mental patient, brilliantly portrayed by Brad Pitt, who may hold the key to the mysterious rogue group, the Army of the 12 Monkeys, thought to be responsible for unleashing the killer disease. Believing he can obtain a pure virus sample in order to find a cure in the future, he is met with one riddle after another that puts him in a race with time. This sci-fi masterpiece from the genius mind of Terry Gilliam is a modern-day classic.

"Bruce Willis is bruisingly good as the hero and Brad Pitt is suitably zany as the activist who dogs his trail.  David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Fierce and disturbing, with a plot that skillfully resists following any familiar course.  Janet Maslin, New York Times
"...a disturbing and dazzling lost world.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
When a man enters a hospital claiming to have journeyed back in time from the year 2025 to stop a killer virus from exterminating mankind, a beautiful psychologist decides he might be more than delusional. Terry Gilliam populates this labyrinthine, apocalyptic film with twisted characters and eerie revelations. The film was shot primarily in Philadelphia; Gilliam uses the more dilapidated area of the city to the film's apocalyptic advantage. The film is based on the 1962 French short film LA JETEE.

Expert Review 12 Monkeys - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: The Masked Movie Snobs Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 8/8/2009 8:48 AM
It’s the year 2035 and humanity has been reduced to living underground because of a virus that ravaged the planet and killed off most of the world’s population. The future is bleak and the inhabitants of the underworld are looking for a way to return to the surface. The only way to battle the disease is for them to send “Volunteers” out into the world and into the past to collect specimens. James Cole (Bruce Willis) is the latest prison inmate to get volunteered into the program. He does such a good job, that he is chosen to go after the source of the virus. The scientists aren’t sure what the source is, but they do know that it first appears in Philadelphia and that a group called the Army of the Twelve Monkeys may be involved somehow....read the full review

Plot Summary
In this intriguing science fiction film from director Terry Gilliam, penal colony prisoner James Cole must travel back in time from the year 2035 to find the cause of a virus that killed five billion people in 1997.| Cole's trip into the past won't be easy. For starters, he winds up in the wrong year on his first attempt. Once, as he time-travels, Cole ends up a prisoner in an insane asylum in 1990. There, he meets psychiatrist Kathryn Railly and inmate Jeffrey Goines, who could hold the key to the epidemic's spread. Cole later winds up in the middle of a World War I battlefield. | After meeting James for a second time, in another year, Dr. Railly gets further involved in his quest. Although she thinks at first that Cole must be crazy, Kathryn soon starts to believe him and attempts to help.| But James has already started to question his own sanity and tries to figure out if his journeys through time are real or if he's just been imagining everything.

ReelViews 9 of 10
Any film that enters the realm of time travel does so at its own peril. You need look no further than last year's disastrous Timecop to understand why. Even James Cameron's Terminator films treaded uncertainly through the minefield of paradoxes created by people venturing across the landscape of their own pasts. Thus, it's a refreshing to encounter a movie with a logical, intelligent approach to the dangers of zipping through time. While I won't claim that Twelve Monkeys has a decisive solution (how can anything be "decisive" when it's so firmly grounded in fantasy?), this approach makes sense, primarily because the time trippers here aren't trying to change the past (hence, wiping out reality), but are instead observing it to make a better future. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
Terry Gilliam's ambitious "12 Monkeys" was co-authored by David Peoples, who wrote "Blade Runner," and it has the same view of the near future as a grunge pit - a view it shares with Gilliam's own "Brazil." In this world, everything is rusty, subterranean, and leaks. The movie uses its future world as a home base and launching pad for the central story, which is set in 1990 and 1996, and is about a time traveler trying to save the world from a deadly plague...I've seen "12 Monkeys" described as a comedy. Any laughs that it inspires will be very hollow. It's more of a celebration of madness and doom, with a hero who tries to prevail against the chaos of his condition, and is inadequate. - Roger Ebert
