Shock Rating


This is a very scary movie at some points: the tagline on the poster says it's "all the dreams you've ever had, and not just the good ones," which suggests we're in for a freaky-deaky ride every now and again.

Once you get past the weirdness, though, Time Bandits is pretty benign. It was intended for children, after all, and with a young boy in the lead, we're not going to have a lot of sexy time here. Violence stays low-key, too, which is pretty amazing considering the fact that we visit monsters, Greek warriors, the sinking of the Titanic, and Napoleon's very messy conquest of Italy. But the gruesome stuff is kept to a minimum, or at least left safely off-screen, where we don't have to look it in the face.
