Reviews:
3 stars out of 4 -- "Hanks remains a great everyman, which means here he can be a wonderful outsider, a surrogate into our realizations or failures." - 04/22/2016 RogerEbert.com


"It takes an actor with the finesse of Tom Hanks to turn a story of confusion, perplexity, frustration and panic into an agreeably uncomfortable comedy. But that’s what Mr. Hanks accomplishes in the German filmmaker Tom Tykwer’s easygoing screen adaptation..." - 04/21/2016 New York Times


"There's more than a faint echo of 'Death of a Salesman' in Hanks' 21st-century take on Willy Loman." - 04/22/2016 Rolling Stone


"It’s like an international-relations microcosm imagined by the Coen brothers, down to an occasional sense that the absurdity isn’t taking us anywhere." - 04/21/2016 Boston Globe


"A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING beguiles and even captivates, and after the dramatic exertions....It’s a relief to see Tykwer operating in a comparatively low-key, even minimalist mode." - 04/19/2016 Variety


3 stars out of 5 -- "Sarita Choudhury breathes life into blossoming romantic subplot which proves the film’s most intriguing feature." - 05/22/2016 The Guardian


3 stars out of 5 -- "Hanks is as watchable as ever....It’s a charming performance, and you root for Clay..." - 05/19/2016 Empire
