Life is waiting.
Viktor Navorski is a man without a country; his plane took off just as a coup d'etat exploded in his homeland, leaving it in shambles, and now he's stranded at Kennedy Airport, where he's holding a passport that nobody recognizes. While quarantined in the transit lounge until authorities can figure out what to do with him, Viktor simply goes on living -- and courts romance with a beautiful flight attendant.
This is about a man who is stuck in an airport terminal and he can barely speak English. I'm not quite sure how Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg pull this off, but they did.
I don't know how many times I've watched this film. One more time I caught it on tv and I couldn't resist.
Viktor Navorski is probably one of the sweetest characters in cinema and one of my favorite Tom Hanks performances.
It's so sweet and warm, I always feel great after watching it!
Marking the third collaboration between Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks after Saving Private Ryan & Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal is an intimately crafted, light-hearted, feel-good romantic comedy that, thanks to Spielberg's assured direction & Hanks' heartwarming performance, succeeds with a smooth take off, stable flight & safe landing over the course of its runtime.
Inspired from a real-life event, The Terminal tells the story of Viktor Navorski who arrives at JFK airport from a politically unstable country only to find himself trapped at the terminal for his passport is no longer valid & he can't be deported back because of the outbreak of war in his homeland. Stuck at airport for an unspecified time, he ends up making this new place his…
I've seen The Terminal at least six times, and it never gets any less entertaining. It is charming, simple, lighthearted, and refreshingly isolated. The entire film takes place in an airport, and the entire film focuses on Tom Hanks building relationships and learning the ways of American life. He is the nicest man you'll ever meet, and people enjoy him for it. There really aren't any thematic or existential ideas to write about, but that does not take away from the film at all. Many consider this a wasted collaboration between Spielberg and Hanks, they couldn't be more wrong. Sometimes cinema is best when it functions as the most pleasant way to pass time.

Strong Performances - Tom Hanks
The Terminal was a film that was frequently visited in my adolescence, a favourite within our home, evoking an accessible and sentimental tone that once in a while strikes me, filling my insides with warmth; a film that immediately places a smile on my face right from the start. This is Tom Hanks not in his most complex and demanding of roles, but it is the one that got through to me since my initial viewing; powered by primarily nostalgia, the loneliness and heartbreak he endures is worthy of my sympathy, and it cannot be helped, but I gain a sense of awe in his ability to create an entirely new language…
Steven Spielberg + Tom Hanks = I really don't think I need to say anything else.
Après un début qui fait un peu peur (Tom Hanks est borderline supportable, il en fait peut-être un peu trop, il a l'air quasi-retarded plutôt que perdu), le reste du film passe quand même bien. Mais ce n'est pas sans heurts: l'obstination de Tom Hanks a ne pas enfreindre les règles est poussée très loin (après réflexion, on peut dire que puisque le personnage n'est pas occidental, et vient d'un pays plus ou moins développé et sous régime dictatorial, c'est quand même crédible), autant que la volonté du personnage de Stanley Tucci de lui mettre des bâtons dans les roues, artificiellement justifiée par une promotion imminente. L'idylle amoureuse avec le personnage de Zeta-Jones étire également pas mal l'élastique du crédible;…
Spielberg möchte uns in diesem Film von kafkaesquen bürokratischen Strukturen erzählen, lässt uns aber dabei aber in noch gnadenloserem Hollywood-Kitsch ertrinken als bei Forrest Gump.
This is a good movie, from the terrific performance of Tom Hanks to the subtle but great direction from Steven Spielberg.
È un film abbastanza atipico e a tratti anche simpatico, ma è stato davvero tirato troppo per le lunghe. Comunque è un film molto dolce su una persona semplice e pura interpretato da quel mostro sacro di Tom Hanks.
I want to visit the post-war Krakozhia.
