Viktor Navorksi (Tom Hanks) falls into a bureaucratic crack in the system when his plane lands at New York's JFK airport from the fictitious country of Krakozhia. Unbeknownst to Navorski, his country fell prey to a military coup while he was in flight, causing it to be wiped from the map. This effectively renders his passport null and void, meaning he cannot legally enter America, nor return to his now nonexistent home. Barely able to speak English, the hapless Navorski is offered a sanctuary of sorts by kindly staff who allow him to freely inhabit the airport. With little money to his name, Navorski has to quickly shed his feelings of displacement, confusion, and alienation to survive. Fortunately he has a resourceful nature, and makes a meager amount of money for food by returning baggage carts. As time passes he becomes more comfortable with his surroundings, even finding time to pursue a passing stewardess, Amelia (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who has captured his heart. But airport denizens such as customs chief Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci), who is a constant thorn in Navorski's side, remind him of his outsider status throughout the ordeal. Director Steven Spielberg uses the airport setting of THE TERMINAL to represent a microcosmic view of the immigrant experience in American society. Drawing on a fine performance from Hanks, and a supporting cast who provide plenty of laughs, Spielberg handles some delicate subject matter with an acute sensitivity, providing a heartfelt tale in the process.
this movie REALLY shows tom hanks acting abilities!!!!!! this was a tough role to play and they couldnt have cast it better!!!!!!!!
its a movie about a man whos passport got canceled while in the air on his way to america (due to a government takeover that happened during his flight that made his country not recognizable as a country) ..... now he fell through a crack in the system, his plane is landed and he is in the US but there is no way to help him, he isnt allowed to leave the airport and is expected to stay until the matter is resolved ..... so he finds himself living in the airport, doest speak ANY english, and there is no translator to properly explain the situation.... this movie has a little of everything (except action) its dramatic, sad, funny, and even a little romantic (with cathrine zeta jones) .... basicly shows how he survives in the airport, learning english, no money, deals with no one wanting to hire him, and has an unsaid war with the supervisor of airport security (and no matter how hard he tried to be friends something happens that makes the supervisor not like him) .... he even becomes the airport hero!!!!!!!
an amazing thing about this is i hear its inspired by a true story.... i bought this movie and i enjoyed it so much i watch it again and again, i even had friends visiting international and we all watched it together for some good laughs!!!!!!!!
The Terminal is a 2004 comedy-drama film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It is about a man trapped in a terminal at JFK International Airport when he is denied entry into the United States and at the same time cannot return to his native country due to a revolution.
The Terminal with Tom Hanks is an adorable story about a foreigner who gets detained at JFK airport and speaks no English. He is a good hearted honest man who just wants to meet another man who knew his deceased father, but that requires him to pass through security. He is forced to stay at the airport until his paperwork is approved to enter the United States. He finds all sorts of resources within the airport to earn money, make allys, and even find romance. This is a light hearted comedy/romance and it'll have you laughing because he thinks himself out of everyday binds that maybe we all have been in somehow or another. The longer he is detained, the more friends he makes, and the more "American" he becomes. I enjoyed this movie, might even watch it again soon!
Another great Tom Hanks movie. This is one of the roles that very few could pull off, and even fewer could ome close to Tom Hanks in their attempts. It gets your attention rights from the very beginning, and keeps it throughout the entire movie.
Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks) lands in New York at the Kennedy Airport to find out his country was in a civil war, and his visa is no longer recognized by the United States. So, unable to enter the U.S, or return home, he is forced to live at the airport. And............
You will have to watch it to find out what happens next, and I am sure you will not be disappointed. I can honestly say, that in my opinion, there is no bad movie with Tom Hank's in it.
