Many people are unaware of this movie, but usually, once someone sees it they absolutely love it. The story revolves around a deadly virus released in 1996 that nearly wipes out humanity, believed to be released by the Army of the Twelve Monkeys. All survivors now live underground. In 2035, a prisoner living in an underground compound named James Cole is selected to go back in time to find the original virus and help them develop a cure. But he goes back too far to 1990, and absolute insanity takes place from there. This movie is incredible!
