    Synopsis


    The Terminal
    Shot almost entirely on a two-and-a-half-story recreation of a full-size operating airport terminal, this romantic comedy from director Steven Spielberg revolves around an Eastern European man by the name of Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), whose plans of immigrating to New York were hastened by a violent coup in his home country. Unfortunately, Viktor finds himself on the wrong end of a nasty technicality while en route to America: His passport was issued from a country, which, during its upheaval, ceased to exist in an official capacity. Unauthorized to leave Kennedy Airport upon his arrival and unable to return home, Viktor finds himself exiled inside the terminal's international transit lounge. Though airport official Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci) views Viktor as an annoying bureaucratic glitch, other airport employees -- including a beautiful flight attendant by the name of Amelia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) -- come to see him as a welcome, if unofficial, addition to their numbers. As the days stretch on into months, the terminal transforms from an intimidating atmosphere of forced assimilation into a country within itself, complete with culture, ambition, status, complex diversity, and the need for love. The supporting cast includes Diego Luna, Chi McBride, Kumar Pallana, Zoe Saldana, Eddie Jones, and Jude Ciccolella. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

      underrated comedic gem

      This comedy is probably Steven Spielberg's most underrated film. Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks), a native of the fictitious country Krakozhia, arrives at New York's JFK Airport. Once there, he's informed that, while he was en route, a coup occurred in his native land, which has rendered his passport useless. With nothing else to do and nowhere else to go until the bureaucratic red tape disappears, Viktor decides to basically 'set up shop' at the airport, where he makes a living by working odd jobs, eventually making friends out the employees, one of whom, an emotionally troubled stewardess (Catherine Zeta-Jones), he falls for. All of this slowly but surely gets on the nerves of the terminal director (Stanley Tucci). Although not as sharp as Catch Me If You Can, there is still a great cast and some good laughs to make this enjoyable. The best part, however, is the eye-popping terminal itself, which ranks up there with the Overlook Hotel in The Shining as one of the all-time great movie sets.

      Soo Funny

      Here we have another classic example of why Tom Hanks is considered an elite actor. Set in New Yorks' busy JFK international airport Tom plays a Russian national coming to America to complete a promise he made to his dad. But while he's in midair a civil war breaks out in his home country. Unable to return home and unable to get his visa authorized, he's forced to stay in the terminal. But while he's making an enemy of the acting director of security affairs, he meets a beautiful woman, makes friends of the airport rejects, and causes the whole airport to fall in love with him. Great movie with really great comedy. What more could we expect from Mr Hanks?

      Not Speilberg's best but a marvel on bluray

      Not a great Speilberg film by any stretch, but man is it a stunner in Hi Def. Zero qualms when it comes to AQ and PQ. The only thing left to be desired is the lack of a director's commentary and lengthier extras.

      I would go as far as to call this one of his least successful and least entertaining films. Still, this movie, 14 years later is still better than most movies coming out today. Worth watching for sure!

      One of the few romantic comedies that I actually enjoy, plus it has Tom Hanks so that never seems to disappoint.

      The Terminal is a slower movie but it's worth watching. If it wasn't Tom Hanks in this movie it wouldn't work, but he delivers from beginning to end.
