Hanks is a likeable actor but rarely a subtle one. Viktor is another cutesy emotional heart-tugger in the Forrest Gump mould, all galumphing slapstick.

...it's impossible to shake the feeling that [The Terminal] belongs on the small screen.

Showcases a fine performance from Hanks but one that gets lost while attempting to transcend a higher purpose.

August 8, 2004
A sweet, little contemporary allegory that celebrates the immigrant spirit and the triumph of the little man over heartless bureaucracy.
August 7, 2004
It's an odd fable: Viktor is the mysterious visitor who shows us what the American Dream is all about-in the movie's terms, compassion for others -- without ever wanting to become an American himself.
August 4, 2004
A rather enjoyable piece of complete and utter fluff

August 3, 2004
A frothy ditty about survival in unlikely circumstances.

August 1, 2004
Even in the desolation of an airport lounge at midnight, Viktor is too pure, we realize, to entertain the ghost of a dirty thought.

É uma pena que, gradualmente, deixe de ser um interessante estudo de personagem e se transforme em um drama tipicamente hollywoodiano.

'Spielberg logra una fantasía sentimental, romántica y sumamente divertida que deja una amplia sonrisa en la boca y la idea de que la vida puede ser mucho menos complicada.'

So cute and sweet that any insightful observations will be lost to real-world audiences.

What will this studio think of next? A remake of The Red Balloon set in Tikrit? How about Sunday in the Park with George relocated to Guantánamo?

Spielberg turns a kinder, gentler Minority Report into a tedious, maudlin homage to the New Wave.

July 12, 2004
Annoying out of the gates, then cute, at times Hollywood romantic, with Zeta-Jones acting as Meg Ryan. Product placement bogs.

July 11, 2004
This is a film that could only come from a cast and crew at the top of their game.

A vacant slog--audiences should be rewarded with free travel miles just for sitting through it.

July 5, 2004
It proves that Spielberg has not lost a single ounce of showmanship and yet he continues to grow, take chances and, yes, even at his age, mature.

What he has here might be flawed, but it's reassuring to see the director return to his roots of character exploration in a fanciful location.
