Spielberg has crafted the film with a proficiency as seamless, and impersonal, as the setting, and you may feel, after a while, that you're longing for your departure time.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
Rarely have I been so acutely aware of a movie's softness and sentimentality, and rarely have I minded less.
A.O. Scott - New York Times
If moviegoers suspend their disbelief -- easy enough thanks to the diverse and talented cast, as well as Spielberg's capable direction -- they're bound to enjoy this cinematic fantasy.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Delicately funny and inventive.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
Discordant, unsatisfying, sometimes emotionally incoherent.
Stephen Hunter - Washington Post
Like so many of Spielberg's films, it's the dream of a brilliant child, and a lovely place to tarry before returning to adulthood.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
Relentlessly behaviorist, the filmmaker seldom fails to pat the puppy and, applying John Williams's melodic treacle, woo the viewer with cheap sentiment.
J. Hoberman - Village Voice
Feels disingenuous and dogmatic.
Jami Bernard - New York Daily News
Unavoidably funny and touching enough that we can ignore its weaknesses.
Eric Harrison - Houston Chronicle
A joyous movie.
Philip Wuntch - Dallas Morning News
In Viktor, Hanks finds a character worthy of his gifts.
Lisa Kennedy - Denver Post
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.
Peter Rainer - New York Magazine
Even in the desolation of an airport lounge at midnight, Viktor is too pure, we realize, to entertain the ghost of a dirty thought.
David Denby - New Yorker
A sweet and delicate comedy.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
An unabashed romantic comedy and Capraesque fable that takes Spielberg into realms he's rarely traveled before.
Michael Wilmington - Chicago Tribune
An uneven mix of comedy and pathos.
Steven Rea - Philadelphia Inquirer
A fairly small, surprisingly intimate movie.
Jeff Strickler - Minneapolis Star Tribune
This may not be a great movie, but it may prove a great feel-good balm to many.
Tom Long - Detroit News
Everything about this movie feels forced.
Bill Muller - Arizona Republic
The concept was there; the production abilities were there. It's the execution that fell apart.
Andrew Sarris - New York Observer
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.
Rex Reed - New York Observer
Spielberg does not appear to take himself or the material too seriously, and his steadfast refusal to see the proverbial glass as less than half-full is more inspiring than cloying.
Scott Foundas - Variety
A gentle alternative to noisy kid-oriented action flicks, raucous comedies and the agitprop of Fahrenheit 9/11.
Jonathan Foreman - New York Post
It's not bad so much as empty, self-satisfied and cute.
Roger Moore - Orlando Sentinel
The small joys it has to offer are wholly dependent on the willingness of the audience to indulge in the proverbial suspension of disbelief. And believe me, much indulging is necessary.
Peter Howell - Toronto Star
To watch The Terminal is to be in one -- your plane delayed, your future on hold, your pass in hand and nothing to board.
Rick Groen - Globe and Mail
Probably the worst-directed film Spielberg has ever made.
Charles Taylor - Salon.com
Bland and semidelusional Hollywood sentimentality.
David Edelstein - Slate
A fine, enjoyable, uplifting fantasy that's suitable for viewing by all members of the family.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
An odd film for Steven Spielberg, which is perhaps why it works so well.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
A bad film. Several bad films, actually.
Richard Corliss - TIME Magazine
Even the best of talents misfire. Here's Exhibit A.
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
An engaging, consistently amusing diversion.
Kenneth Turan - Los Angeles Times
Scott A. Mantz - Scott Mantz' Movie Reviews
Lovely and well worth sharing with your family.
Nell Minow - Common Sense Media
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
Gregory Freitas - Hollywood.com
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
Joe Lozito - Big Picture Big Sound
Amiable if rather toothless fable.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
A great filmmaker doing minor work.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
Dean Essner - Time Out
It's the type of movie that would easily entertain any viewer.
Wesley Lovell - Oscar Guy
Wesley Lovell - Cinema Sight
The Terminal's conclusion was as awkward and aloof as O'Hare Airport in December.
Uri Lessing - www.kcactive.com
Dean Essner - Bullz-Eye.com
Hanks is excellent and I applaud Spielberg for delving into some new territory.
Bill Clark - FromTheBalcony
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.
Moriarty - Ain't It Cool Movie Reviews
Hanks' overdone slapstick antics and awful accent ... keep this featherweight farce from taking flight.
Nick Schager - Lessons of Darkness
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.
Brian Juergens - Freeze Dried Movies
What's shocking here is the inanity of it all.
Garth Franklin - Dark Horizons
It seems he's happy to continue viewing the world in black and white.
Ethan Alter - NYC Film Critic
The film concludes with a ten-car pile-up of sentimental resolutions.
Jeffrey Overstreet - Christianity Today

Emanuel Levy - EmanuelLevy.Com
The politically connotative mechanics of the plot are utterly superfluous--a good 3/4th of the plot is of a throwaway nature.
Nathaniel Rogers - Film Experience
Una fabula actual de la capacidad de encontrarnos, de no perdernos, o de todo al mismo tiempo.
Alex Ramirez - Cinenganos
Dean Essner - Sunday Times (Australia)
So satisfied with its feel-good status, it seems oblivious to the bad casting decisions
Wendy Ide - Times [UK]
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.
Ian Nathan - Empire Magazine
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.
Matthew Turner - ViewLondon
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.
Nev Pierce - BBC
...it's impossible to shake the feeling that [The Terminal] belongs on the small screen.
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Showcases a fine performance from Hanks but one that gets lost while attempting to transcend a higher purpose.
Mark Sells - Oregon Herald
A sweet, little contemporary allegory that celebrates the immigrant spirit and the triumph of the little man over heartless bureaucracy.
Doris Toumarkine - Film Journal International
A rather enjoyable piece of complete and utter fluff
Brian Mckay - eFilmCritic.com
A frothy ditty about survival in unlikely circumstances.
James Kendrick - Q Network Film Desk
E uma pena que, gradualmente, deixe de ser um interessante estudo de personagem e se transforme em um drama tipicamente hollywoodiano.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
The Terminal is a surefooted fable about what connects us as humans.
Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
'Spielberg logra una fantasia sentimental, romantica y sumamente divertida que deja una amplia sonrisa en la boca y la idea de que la vida puede ser mucho menos complicada.'
Jorge Avila Andrade - Moviola
So cute and sweet that any insightful observations will be lost to real-world audiences.
Rich Cline - Shadows on the Wall
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 Guantanamo?
Nick Davis - Nick's Flick Picks
Spielberg turns a kinder, gentler Minority Report into a tedious, maudlin homage to the New Wave.
Stephen Himes - Flak Magazine
Annoying out of the gates, then cute, at times Hollywood romantic, with Zeta-Jones acting as Meg Ryan. Product placement bogs.
Ross Anthony - Hollywood Report Card
This is a film that could only come from a cast and crew at the top of their game.
Greg Maki - Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
A vacant slog--audiences should be rewarded with free travel miles just for sitting through it.
Christopher Smith - Bangor Daily News (Maine)
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.
Collin Souter - eFilmCritic.com
Dean Essner - Film Threat
Leonard Maltin - Leonard Maltin's Picks
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.
Brian Orndorf - FilmJerk.com
... truly heartwarming, humorous and touching film...
Tony Toscano - Talking Pictures (U.S.)
...a fairytale triumph about the immigrant experience in America...
Lori Hoffman - Atlantic City Weekly
...un divertissement de premiere classe... ni plus, ni moins.
Nicolas Lacroix - EnPrimeur.ca
Attention, Academy voters: This film needs to win for Production Design. Also, Tom Hanks is God.
Karina Montgomery - Cinerina
Spielberg and Hank turn this 'delay' into a delight.
Kevin N. Laforest - Montreal Film Journal
Alex McDowell's set is so impressive, it outshines everything else in the movie, including Hanks. But as far as the lackluster story goes, it barely gets off the ground.
Thomas Delapa - Boulder Weekly
Those who feel a twinge of something other than warm fuzziness when being as shamelessly manipulated as one of Mr. Pavlov's dogs may want to think twice.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
The Terminal isn't a belly laugh or a knee-slapper; rather it enthralls viewers with gentle humor and warmth and holds your attention with the mystery of Viktor's visit.
Jack Garner - Journal News (Westchester, NY)
Steve Schneider - Orlando Weekly
The story is engaging and funny, but it does fall apart somewhat in the final act.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Dinner and a DreamWork
Rob Nelson - City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
I think I'll go watch Saving Private Ryan.
John R. McEwen - Film Quips Online
Fans of old fashioned filmmaking, in the grand tradition of Frank Capra and Billy Wilder, will find much to enjoy here.
Jamie Gillies - Apollo Guide
Viktor is amiable; he's not going to make anyone nervous, as he might if he was, for instance, "Middle Eastern."
Cynthia Fuchs - PopMatters
[W]hat does Spielberg expect us to take from all this? Should we be amused? Touched? Inspired? It certainly doesn't require us to think.
Daniel M. Kimmel - Worcester Telegram & Gazette
... a winning Capraesque fable unfortunately undone by the realities of the time in which it's set -- now.
Jonathan R. Perry - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
There are worse movies out there than The Terminal, but few that feel quite so... unnecessary.
Pete Vonder Haar - Film Threat
While very funny and very whimsical in that New Wave sort of way, Spielberg squanders grand opportunity with the premise.
Jimmy O - Film Snobs
Suggests that America remains the generous land of opportunity that immigrants have dreamed of for decades, despite terrorism and Homeland Security...
John Beifuss - Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
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.
Richard Roeper - Ebert & Roeper
Tom Hanks was back to his good, old self.
Dan Marcucci and Nancy Serougi - Broomfield Enterprise
A loungeful of comedic payloads and ironies but so stretched beyond capacity that the overbooking gave me an itch to take off on the next flight out.
Jules Brenner - Cinema Signals
Director Steven Spielberg and actor Tom Hanks combine to work their movie magic one more time.
Jackie K. Cooper - jackiekcooper.com
It may not be Saving Private Ryan II, but it's still the best adult film playing right now.
Sean McBride - Sean the Movie Guy
A handful of scenes are effective in isolation, but 'The Terminal' doesn't hold together overall.
John P. McCarthy - ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Tom Hanks pulls off another brilliant piece of acting that is touching and very funny.
Vince Koehler - Entertainment Spectrum
The Terminal is a movie that asks you to suspend yourself from belief for a couple of hours and head into kind of a movie schnookie woo-woo world...
Emily Blunt - Blunt Review
Seeing The Terminal is like experiencing an uneventful flight: The trip was pleasant but not delightful, and you're happy to deplane at the other end.
Marjorie Baumgarten - Austin Chronicle
Dean Essner - Boston Phoenix
The movie goes trippingly along it's merry way and is actually quite delightful.
Eric Lurio - Greenwich Village Gazette
Much of the action is in fact predictable but in a satisfying, old-fashioned way.
Andy Klein - Los Angeles CityBeat
Much like the fictional Krakozhia, real-life logic and believable people don't exist.
Gerry Shamray - Sun Newspapers of Cleveland
A tedious schmaltz-fest that feels more like the work of the cinematically challenged Ephron than the supremely gifted Spielberg.
Timothy Knight - Reel.com
...very smooth and on course...has the appropriate touch of sentimentality and reflection to make this spirited vehicle the suitable one for takeoff
Frank Ochieng - Movie Eye
This skillfully constructed saga of sentimentality is the falsest movie of the year.
Mary F. Pols - Contra Costa Times
Once again Tom Hanks shows the depths of his talent.
Diana Saenger - ReelTalk Movie Reviews
An enjoyable ensemble movie anchored by Hanks' incredible -- and incredibly generous -- performance.
Joe Baltake - Sacramento Bee
With a big assist from Hanks, Spielberg takes nothing and turns it into a charming something.
Boo Allen - Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
Steven Spielberg wants to make you smile ... which should be all the warning you need to avoid this troubled film in the same way you might avoid the airport on Thanksgiving weekend.
Glenn Whipp - Los Angeles Daily News
The intriguing premise soon becomes a labored and contrived layover for the viewer.
Jon Niccum - Lawrence Journal-World
There are so many little details that give the movie its humor, its warmth, and its charm. It's full of unexpected surprises - every sentimental moment is perfectly placed.
Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone - TheMovieChicks.com
This terminally bumpy mishmash of every bad contrivance ever made on film never takes flight.
Dean Essner - E! Online
Spielberg's most optimistic film since 1989.
Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
Tom Hanks woos Catherine Zeta-Jones and Kumar Pallana spins plates...good times.
John Venable - Supercala.com
Overwrought and self-indulgent.
Liz Braun - Jam! Movies
Dean Essner - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
An occasionally inspired, somewhat confused, utterly watchable film featuring some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
Larry Carroll - FilmStew.com
I'm not in love with The Terminal, but I liked every minute in it.
Mick LaSalle - San Francisco Chronicle
The word on this one is simple: Enjoy.
David Elliott - San Diego Union-Tribune
There's a thin line between fable and twaddle, and this feel-good trifle veers dangerously close to the latter.
Maitland McDonagh - TV Guide's Movie Guide
...a delicate, delightful piece of filmmaking that works best as an allegorical comedy, even if allegorical comedy requires a tone that Spielberg can't always maintain.
Josh Larsen - Sun Publications (Chicago, IL)
The Terminal is quintessential Spielberg: perfectly cast, technically breathtaking, sentimental to the point of being one sugar cube away from gooey and extremely pleasurable to watch.
Moira MacDonald - Seattle Times
Hanks ... is the perfect actor for this role, balancing the absurdist humor and heartbreak of Viktor's predicament and adding his own considerable good nature.
Sean Means - Salt Lake Tribune
Tedious, insincere malarkey that wants badly to play on emotions it's not capable of generating itself.
Christine James - Boxoffice Magazine
Isn't nearly as daring as it could have been.
Robert Denerstein - Denver Rocky Mountain News
Dean Essner - Baltimore Sun
Wobbles between plotlines and characters that make emotional sense and ones that don't
remains passably entertaining, but doesn't bear much thinking about afterwards.
Steven D. Greydanus - Decent Films Guide
The dramatic part of this ensemble drama doesn't work very well.
Stephen Whitty - Newark Star-Ledger
The draw for The Terminal lay solely on the shoulders of its star.
Robin Clifford - Reeling Reviews
As they land this fish-out-of-water story, Spielberg and Hanks have created a modern Catch-22 that moves you to laughter and then tugs your heart moments later.
Jeffrey Bruner - Des Moines Register
Holds several small treasures and one crown jewel of a performance by Tom Hanks.
Sean O'Connell - Eclipse Magazine
Speilberg and Hanks make "The Terminal" an enjoyable flight, and not an interminable bore.
David Foucher - EDGE Boston
The trip still feels oddly unnecessary.
Terry Lawson - Detroit Free Press
Hanks' perfectly rendered Navorski offsets the hogwash and makes the film's shortcomings bearable.
Karen Karbo - Oregonian
This film is the very definition of 'light' entertainment.
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Jeff Vice - Deseret News, Salt Lake City
A funny, lovely story that seems true in nearly every particular.
Lawrence Toppman - Charlotte Observer
A film as delightful and entertaining as it is insightful.
Louis B. Hobson - Jam! Movies
One thing has remained constant... Spielberg's stubborn determination to take true stories -- World War II, slavery, a counterfeiting wiz, a stranded immigrant -- and turn them into feel-good mush.
James Verniere - Boston Herald
The implicit message is not subtle, but it's heartfelt.
Gary Thompson - Philadelphia Daily News
That Spielberg refuses to go after bigger game keeps the film a banal exercise in sentimentality.
Dennis Schwartz - Ozus' World Movie Reviews
A satisfying feel-good comedy.
Robert W. Butler - Kansas City Star
What's less interesting than spending time in an airport?
Audrey Rock-Richardson - Tooele Transcript-Bulletin (Utah)
leaving you feeling like Viktor, stranded in nowheresville, able to make do while you have to, but looking forward to your ticket out.
Phil Villarreal - Arizona Daily Star
The Terminal is so beautifully directed, so pleasurable to watch and so thoughtfully put together, it's a disappointment when you realize, halfway through, that the movie is going to fall way short of a masterpiece.
Rene Rodriguez - Miami Herald
An inspired piece of chutzpah.
Ella Taylor - L.A. Weekly
The Terminal isn't terminal, but it comes close to flat-lining a few times too many.
Eleanor Ringel Gillespie - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Hopeful but not sappy.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
Hanks' Navorsky character is compelling, we care about him, and we become interested in a situation most of us would stop at nothing to avoid.
Jeff Otto - IGN Movies
Sweet but disjointed film.
Duane Dudek - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
'The Terminal' is like a private jet that has had too much baggage...it looks sleek and beautiful on the outside but it is simply too loaded down to ever quite take off.
Peter Sobczynski - Critic Doctor
The Terminal works best when it sticks to its loosely knit comic episodes, such as a poker game with stakes lifted from the airport's lost-and-found room.
Mark Halverson - Sacramento News & Review
Thanks to Spielberg's vivid storytelling and Hanks' matchless gift for bringing the common man to life, this is a relentlessly charming movie.
Bill Gallo - Dallas Observer
Steven Spielberg's most Spielberg-y film in years.
Jon Popick - Planet Sick-Boy
Fortunately, it doesn't aimlessly amble for more than a few minutes after it should. But this ending separates a great film from a very good one with a ridiculous coda.
Nick Rogers - State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
One of Spielberg's worst movies.
David Sterritt - Christian Science Monitor
It never gets any big laughs or major lumps in the throat, but it sparks throughout.
William Arnold - Seattle Post-Intelligencer
It's a recommendable movie if only for the flurry of solid laughs that come early and often, but that's about it.
Scott Weinberg - eFilmCritic.com
Nathanson's rich mix of wit and sentiment culminates in a moment so moving that it blooms within you as you watch.
Nell Minow - Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
Effective but overlong.
Phoebe Flowers - South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Takes you on such a funny, good-natured ride that you forgive its destination being so ordinary and disappointing.
Eric D. Snider - EricDSnider.com
The first 45 minutes or so are interesting, as we learn about Hanks' character and his unusual situation. Then the whole thing takes a nose dive and never recovers.
Paul Clinton (CNN.com) - CNN.com
What...makes it all worthwhile, is Hanks' performance, which consists of one part Chaplin.., one part Sid Caesar.., and one part Hanks' own personal warmth.
Arthur Lazere - culturevulture.net
Spielberg's love letter to America.
Harvey S. Karten - Compuserve
makes its audience suffer one too many layovers, but Hanks and Spielberg's technical crew keep it aloft
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
Spielberg seems to be letting the audience know that he's not trying to be terribly serious this time, so just sit back and enjoy the show.
Jeffrey Chen - Window to the Movies
Cloying and contrived.
Glenn Lovell - San Jose Mercury News
Airport-purgatory story from Spielberg and Hanks is a minor work from two master craftsmen.
James Rocchi - Netflix
The film is so flaccid and pedestrian one can hardly believe it comes from the director whom a majority of Americans would presume is the best this country has.
John Anderson - Newsday
Within ten minutes, I was hooked; within thirty, I was rapt; by the last act, I knew that the hands of a master had played me like a piano. It's beautiful.
Eugene Novikov - Film Blather
A heart-tugging, crowd-pleasing yet light-hearted human drama with refreshing comic undertones.
Susan Granger - Modamag.com
(CNN.com) Paul Clinton - CNN.com
In 50 years people will remember, talk about and admire The Terminal as they do both It's a Wonderful Life and Mr. Smith Goes To Washington.
Erik Childress - eFilmCritic.com
The Terminal is a light-hearted and thoroughly entertaining film about the joys that can be ours when we slow down, practice deep listening, and cultivate the art of patience.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat - Spirituality and Practice
Misses the mark when it incorporates an ill-conceived love story between Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones into the plot.
Rebecca Murray - About.com
Sarah Chauncey - Reel.com
Chicken soup for the narcoleptic and the easily distracted.
Walter Chaw - Film Freak Central
Takes off in spectacular fashion, but too much narrative turbulence prevents its flights of fancy from ever achieving maximum altitude.
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing
Spielberg applies his so-called 'magic touch' to the picture and produces something genuinely charming and sweet.
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
A movie so confused that it might have been directed by a jet-lagged world traveler.
Ben Kenigsberg - East Hampton Independent
The subtle implications of Viktor Navorski's inimitable status are pregnant with charm.
Jeanne Aufmuth - Palo Alto Weekly
Plays like the first few episodes of an expensive, gimmicky sitcom about a guy forced to live in an airport.
Rob Blackwelder - SPLICEDWire
the slickest sort of escapism, designed to amuse . . . but not challenge, [sending] its viewers out into the world with the sense that they have seen something profound
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
...so visually sophisticated you could enjoy it just as much with the sound turned off.
Sean Burns - Philadelphia Weekly
Not unlike experience of talking to a foreigner who barely speaks English: Strangely intriguing, but kind of sad and deeply frustrating
Christopher Null - Filmcritic.com
It's sad that Spielberg seems content to engage in crude slapstick-the mischievous diversions of a crowd-pleaser.
Keith Uhlich - Slant Magazine
The Terminal emerges as a political commentary that pulls no punches.
Steven Snyder - Zertinet Movies
The Terminal is the anti-summer movie ... I'll wager that there will be few films released this year that will be this pleasant a surprise or engaging a movie.
Jeffrey Lyles - Gazette (MD)
The Terminal is one of those films that is so warm and fuzzy you want to cuddle up on the couch with it.
Willie Waffle - WaffleMovies.com
By favoring cuteness over credibility, The Terminal ends up being far too fantastical--even for Steven Spielberg.
Jeffrey Huston - Mixed Reviews
...as pleasantly adrift as its hero, a modestly enjoyable sojourn that has no idea where it should be going.
Rob Vaux - Flipside Movie Emporium
Summer is for more than monsters and mayhem ... a picture like The Terminal is worth as much consideration as vampire hunters, ancient warriors and boy wizards.
Steve Rhodes - Internet Reviews
Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks serve up a heaping helping of Capracorn...and in their hands it's a reasonably palatable, though hardly gourmet, dish.
Frank Swietek - One Guy's Opinion
Only on a concourse can a Sbarro franchise boast: 'When it's got to be good enough to be between Gates 16 and 17.'
Mark Ramsey - MovieJuice!
Starts off with a quirkily original premise before completely derailing in shallow subplots that go nowhere and a loathsome conclusion that wants, but fails, to be uplifting.
Dustin Putman - DustinPutman.com
The movie for the most part scores, in spite of muddied premise and a singularly bad casting choice.
Joshua Tyler - CinemaBlend.com
The key to this is not bigger, faster or more intense. It is the simple clarity that is at the core of all great storytelling.
David Poland - Hot Button
