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at JFK airport from a politically unstable country only to find himself trapped at the terminal for his passport is no longer valid & he can't be deported back because of the outbreak of war in his homeland.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.
This is one of the most underrated films of Steven Spielberg's career. A heartwarming, magical piece of filmmaking to take me away from reality.
I believe this is my third viewing, and yes, I really do love this film, deal with it. It's a big ball of candy floss that melts your heart, and that's OK to enjoy from time to time, especially when it's made so expertly by a guy like Spielberg (he really does know his way around a camera). It's not all sugary though, the film has the perfect amount of bittersweetness that makes it not just an enjoyable time, but a memorable one, a story that sticks with you for its heart, it's earnestness and it's beauty. And oh my god, John Williams score is simply magical. He is a god of composition and this is some of his best work. Makes my heart flutter every time I hear it.
"The Terminal" or two hours with Forrest Gump at the airport.
A lovely tragicomedy about more humanity and cultural candour in times of terror. Meanwhile, this movie is more than 10 years old but more relevant than ever.
Finally made my cousin watch it. It was very well received.

I love rom-come, I love Tom Hanks and I love Catherine Zeta Jones. This is perf.
