Critic Reviews of "The Terminal"New York Magazine/VultureAugust 07, 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.New YorkerAugust 01, 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.New York ObserverJune 24, 2004
A feel-good film of such originality and sweetness in a summer of otherwise derivative sequels and remakes that it practically qualifies for miracle status.New York ObserverJune 24, 2004
The concept was there; the production abilities were there. It's the execution that fell apart.Ebert & RoeperJune 21, 2004
This is the first time in my life I wanted to spend more time in an airport terminal, and Spielberg is just such a brilliant filmmaker; the things he does with light and with motion and some amazing tracking shots.Salon.comJune 19, 2004
Probably the worst-directed film Spielberg has ever made.Fat Guys at the MoviesJanuary 17, 2016
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 anxietyCommon Sense MediaDecember 29, 2010
Lovely and well worth sharing with your family.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A crowd-pleasing and entertaining film about humanity and heart with excellent performances and competent directing from Spielberg.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 23, 2007
Amiable if rather toothless fable.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
A great filmmaker doing minor work.www.kcactive.comJuly 25, 2005
The Terminal's conclusion was as awkward and aloof as O'Hare Airport in December.
