Famous names, a band of timetravelling midgets, a large mix of various types of fantasy and a final showdown in a set quite literally thrown together form some lego bricks. What more could anyone ask for?
This film belongs in the memory along with other classics such as Willow and The Princess Bride in the days when films didn't need to have over the top special effects, although there are several amusing occurances here.
In short, a subtle blend of Pythonyesque humour and western fantasy which adds up overall to an amazing adventure story.
To be fair, is beginning to look a bit dated by todays standards. But like many things retro, has not lost it's charm.
In my opinion Gilliam's greatest film!
