Two Line Reviews - #171

Movie: Twelve Monkeys (1995)

Plot: A man who is considered mentally disturbed actuallys travels back to the past to get info on the origin of a virus that nearly wiped off the human race. The scientists goof up making him travel to different times from the past & that misleads him & his psychiatrist doctor of one of the past worlds to a wrong person who they consider the source.

  • Bruce Willis, as the confused time-traveller , does a fine job & Brad Pitt as a lunatic is electric in his short role.
  • Letting a sci-fi idea get to the viewer is not an easy ordeal; The maker scores with a pretty clear depiction of what the film is about.
  • The music in the background adds to the suspense.
Too much of time travel is too much of confusion & that somehow diminishes the desired effect.

Quite Compelling but Complex & Confusing at the same time.
