Twelve Monkeys is another gem by Terry Gilliam. I do have some major gripes with time travel films but this is the only one that gets it right in my opinion.Can’t change the past or the future it’s already set out,the complete opposite of Back to The Future. That’s not to say i don’t enjoys the exploits of Marty McFly. I’ve seen 12 monkeys about half a dozen times and i think maybe that’s too much.Maybe twice is okay.The plot is; in a future (around 2035) where a virus has nearly wiped out mankind people have taken to living underground.A group of scientists have developed a time machine and send ‘volunteers’ back to find out how and where the virus broke out.So they can find a cure in their present time ,2035.

RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  GREAT.EXCELLENT ACCORDION SCORE,VERY 1900’S PARISIAN.
