RMG 215: Twelve Monkeys (1995)

April 15, 2020

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined, once again, by the lovely Trista Robinson (see more from Trista HERE and HERE), and they’re geeking out over Twelve Monkeys (1995) and

  • maddening time travel
  • ambiguous endings
  • grimy science fiction
  • the Cassandra Complex
  • and much, much more!


After the world’s population is devastated by a killer virus, survivors must live in dank underground communities. A lone time traveler from the year 2035 must solve a riddle that may save his people… but it may also take him to the brink of madness.

Cole (Bruce Willis) “volunteers” to travel into the past to obtain a pure virus sample, thereby helping scientists develop a cure. Along the way, he crosses paths with a beautiful psychiatrist (Madeleine Stowe) and a one-card-short-of-a-full-deck mental patient (Brad Pitt).

But the race is on, as Cole searches for The Army of the 12 Monkeys, a radical group linked to the deadly disease.
