I thouroughly enjoyed this film. I felt there were a few silly moments but, in general, it's heart was in the right place. There were sometimes laugh out loud moments and having seen 'Red Eye' the night before, 'The Terminal' was truely from a different league. Has Tom Hanks done a bad film yet???

I loved this film from start to finish, Hanks is really convincing as Viktor Navorski and the supporting cast is just wonderfull. This is not just a light hearted popcorn movie, it speaks about the value of compassion and human decency over slavish adherence to rules and if ever a film demonstrates that rules are made to be broken then this is it. Also all the characters in this movie are likeable even the guy running the airport has a good side, it really makes you wish more people in life would be willing to break the rules when the occasion demands it.

Recently re-watched, had forgotten how great a film this really is. A slower paced, but nonetheless dazzling experiment for Spielberg and an incredible performance from Hanks, always humourous and touching but never straying into self-parody or stereotype. A forgotten modern gem!

The brilliant Tom Hanks and the rest of the amiable cast make this bumpy ride worth sitting through.

Yes, it's not perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than you'd think. The unusual story is told masterfully through Spielberg's technical brilliance, and given real emotional weight by Hanks' astonishing performance. A joy of a movie.

Also, a pretty spot-on review from Empire.
