Only 1% of the population has survived by the year 2035, and is forced to live underground. A convict (James Cole) reluctantly volunteers to be sent back in time to 1996 to gather information about the origin of the epidemic (who he’s told was spread by a mysterious “Army of the Twelve Monkeys”) and locate the virus before it mutates so that scientists can study it. Unfortunately Cole is mistakenly sent to 1990, six years earlier than expected, and is arrested and locked up in a mental institution, where he meets Dr. Kathryn Railly, a psychiatrist, and Jeffrey Goines, the insane son of a famous scientist and virus expert.
Plot: In the year 2035, convict James Cole 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, and patient Jeffrey Goines, 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.

A brilliant movie. One of the very best science fiction movies of the 1990s, and one or Terry Gilliam’s greatest achievements.
I grew up on Python and have followed Terry Gilliam’s subsequent directorial career for more years than I care to remember. Half his output leaves me cold, the other half dazzle me beyond belief. ‘Brazil’ is his movie that I would rate the highest, but I’ve come to think that I have unfairly underrated ‘Twelve Monkeys’. I have always enjoyed it, but I’ve only come to realize just how good a movie it really is. Sometimes I think it is even better than ‘Brazil’. It’s a close pick. Unlike ‘Brazil’ Gilliam didn’t come up with the script. He basically was initially involved as a director for hire. Thankfully the script itself (by David and Janet Peoples) is first rate. On top of that Gilliam manages to stamp his own style and approach on to the material without sliding into complete self-indulgence as he sometimes does. The budget of this movie wasn’t anywhere near as large as you would imagine from the impressive results on screen. It looks superb. Gilliam coaxes first rate performances out of Bruce Willis (quite a surprise) and Brad Pitt (not such a surprise, see also ‘Johnny Suede’ and ‘Kalifornia’). Madeline Stowe is also very good, as is Christopher Plummer, and in a small but important role, David Morse. It’s difficult to fault this movie. It is a joy to watch, and improves with each viewing. I also highly recommend Chris Marker’s ‘La Jetee’, the short experimental film which inspired ‘Twelve Monkeys’. It is also brilliant.
these monkeys will go to heaven…
“Twelve monkeys”‘s got all the elements to become Terry Gilliam’s masterpiece. An outstanding screenplay, a sustained rhythm, clever sometimes ironic dialogs. Moreover, he had a good nose about the cast. “Twelve monkeys” is also the first movie where Bruce Willis stands back from the kind of character he used to play in his previous movies. Here, a jaded and hopeless character which you could nickname a prisoner took over from a fearless and invincible hero (as it was the case in “Die hard”). No matter how he tries, he’s a prisoner of the time. The movie contains a very thrilling end too. It’s got a real dramatic power. But this terrific movie is also a reflection about man, the dangers he dreads (notably, the ones that could cause the end of the world and here, these are virus that can create illnesses). No matter how long it will take, “twelve monkeys” will be estimated at its true value: one of the masterpieces made in the nineties.
