I can’t fault the acting in this, A solid cast of stars highlight otherwise failure of storytelling and pacing. Terminal has a lot of enjoyable elements in its oddball style, but the narrative keeps it from being something truly special, a wasted opportunity.
Screenwriter Steven Rogers tells a story about Harding that has rarely been told, and we end up sympathizing with her for the first time telling this story. When the Detroit attack happened, Harding was painted as the villain as Kerrigan was portrayed as the poor innocent girl who viciously attacked. While the attack was indeed dastardly, Kerrigan’s portrayal by the media was anything but accurate, while people were too harsh on Tonya but history is written by the victor.
