The Terminal - * *
Originally reviewed 12/7/04
I was pretty disappointed by this movie. It all seemed so unbelievable. Sure, it was amusing, but I expect a lot more out of Spielberg. It's almost as if he let someone else direct and put his name on it. This movie proves the dictum that you can never make a good movie out of a bad script (even if you have one of the best directors).
This might have made a good short film, but the high concept idea of a guy living in an airport because the United States doesn't recognize his country seems a bit ludicrous.
