Blu-ray Review – 12 Monkeys (1995)

12 Monkeys, 1995.

Directed by Terry Gilliam.

Starring Bruce Willies, Madeleine Stowe, Brad Pitt, and Christopher Plummer.


Deciding whether to pick up another copy of 12 Monkeys depends on whether you’re interested in the new restoration, which looks quite nice, and a couple new bonus features, one of which is a 1996 interview with director Terry Gilliam. The rest of the extras, including the very entertaining commentary track and the in-depth making-of piece, were ported over from previous releases.

“Is he mad or are we?” director Terry Gilliam once asked of James Cole (Bruce Willis), the main character of his film 12 Monkeys. Like his classic movie Brazil, 12 Monkeys is the story of a man out of sync with his environment, although in this case, Cole has been sent back in time from the year 2035 to find a virus that killed nearly all of humanity in 1996, so scientists in his era can find a cure.
