ab’s review published on Letterboxd:
Not too hard a film to understand, despite its reputation.
'Twelve Monkeys' is supposedly a great mindf**k movie, however I didn't really get why. I understood everything that was happening and could even predict the ending halfway through the movie.The story was okay, but I was expecting a little more from it. I liked the future set design and the performance by Bruce Willis, but the real star of the show is Brad Pitt. Pitt just goes batshit insane in his role and it's just beautiful. His twitches and crazy stares really draw the audience into the character, and is the main draw for me in terms of a rewatch.
A decent movie but not too hard to follow, despite people saying it is.
