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

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.

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

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.

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

A sweet, little contemporary allegory that celebrates the immigrant spirit and the triumph of the little man over heartless bureaucracy.

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.

A rather enjoyable piece of complete and utter fluff

The Terminal is a surefooted fable about what connects us as humans.

'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.'
