Storyline:
In the year 2035, convict James Cole (Bruce Willis) reluctantly volunteers to be sent back in time to discover the origin of a deadly virus that wiped out nearly all of the earth’s population and forced the survivors into underground communities. But when Cole is mistakenly sent to 1990 instead of 1996, he’s arrested and locked up in a mental hospital. There he meets psychiatrist Dr. Kathryn Railly (Madeleine Stowe), and patient Jeffrey Goines (Brad Pitt), the son of a famous virus expert, 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.

One review

  • “Twelve monkeys” is a strange movie with many plot-twists and a complex storyline, but that’s something good. I guess it’s one of the best Terry Gilliam-movies! I loved this movie upon first viewing and I still do. Bruce Willis proves himself an actor of all genres, but I really loved the character of Brad Pitt. If you like complex movies, you need to see this one.
