Movie Review by Movie Addict
October 28th, 2007

I'm looking for the Army of the Twelve Monkeys.

Take Brad Pitt out of this film and it is just a so-so time travel film. Released the same year as his great performance in Se7en, this film was an outstanding example of his range and capabilities. He was the focus of the film even if he wasn't on screen that long. You knew he HAD to be the one responsible.

Bruce Willis just did not impress me with his acting here. He just seemed to scream and run around a lot. Nothing impressive at all.

Madeline Stowe (Short Cuts, The General's Daughter) gave a good performance as one who came to believe Willis. Too bad, it was too late - or was it? Terry Gilliam (Brazil, The Fisher King) left us hanging at the end to devise our own scenario.

Like I said, it was a good time-travel movie and Brad Pitt makes it worth watching.
