   Movie Summary: [Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Comedy]

    In Terry Gilliam's fantastic voyage through time and space, a young boy named Kevin escapes from his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarves. With a map stolen from the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson), they delight in plundering treasure from Napoleon (Ian Holm) and Agamemnon (Sean Connery)--but the Evil Genius (David Warner) is watching every move! With a darkly playful script by Gilliam and Michael Palin, "Time Bandits" is all at once a giddy fairy tale, a revisionist history lesson, and a satire on technology gone awry. Also featuring John Cleese, Shelley Duvall and Katherine Helmond.
