Spielberg was able to make a post-9/11 film about a foreigner in an American airport without getting on a soap box about terrorism or airport anxiety

The Terminal's conclusion was as awkward and aloof as O'Hare Airport in December.

There are story threads that play out enjoyably, and other threads end up going nowhere. Enjoy the film from scene to scene, since there are definite pleasures along the way.

Hanks' overdone slapstick antics and awful accent ... keep this featherweight farce from taking flight.

The film loses its hushed sense of 'lost-in-the-system' hopelessness and becomes a silly, 'let's all put on a show!' feel-gooder that misses more often not.

What's shocking here is the inanity of it all.

It seems he's happy to continue viewing the world in black and white.

The film concludes with a ten-car pile-up of sentimental resolutions.

The politically connotative mechanics of the plot are utterly superfluous--a good 3/4th of the plot is of a throwaway nature.

Una fábula actual de la capacidad de encontrarnos, de no perdernos, o de todo al mismo tiempo.

So satisfied with its feel-good status, it seems oblivious to the bad casting decisions

Something of a disappointment, despite solid work from Hanks and Tucci -- it's as if Spielberg assembled all the ingredients for a great film and then decided to experiment and threw away the recipe.

Far less cuddly than expected, this unusual and elegant movie may have failed to connect with US audiences but it proves Spielberg is currently the most unpredictable director in Hollywood.
