A Hologram for the King's user reviews

Chicago Sun-Times

A beautiful and eccentric waking dream (...) This is quite simply a beautiful film to behold.

A meandering mess of half-baked storylines that amount to little. Hanks's affable presence keeps it all afloat.

It's that rare fish-out-of-water story in which the fish miraculously manages to stop needing water, and learns to crave air instead.

'A Hologram for the King' is a baffling film (...) The problem is not that anything on screen is troubling, it's that nothing there, not even star Tom Hanks, is capable of holding our interest or attention for very long.
