Review: In a time of remakes, reboots, sequels and overused special effects Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks make the impossible and create The Terminal (2004), an unabashed comedy that takes both into realms they’ve never been before. It is really hard to direct a movie that takes place in one area but this pure, original script served Spielberg’s and Hank’s talent really well. We can name this gem a ”feel good” film, that explores the depth of humanity on every level. Outstanding performance by Tom Hanks and a good one by Catherine Zeta-Jones.
