The 8 Worst Steven Spielberg Films

8. The Terminal (2004)

While certainly well-intentioned, and endearing on a certain level, this Tom Hanks comedy about a baffled immigrant who is forced to live at JFK Airport because of political turmoil that dissolved his native country while he was en route was thin, bland, and obvious. Spielberg’s point about America being a wonderland and a melting pot isn’t wrong, but he makes it in a saccharine -- bordering on cloying -- way.

 

7. Empire of the Sun (1987)
