Product Description

An Eastern European visitor becomes a resident of a New York airport terminal when a war breaks out and erases his country from the map, voiding his passport. He makes friends with the airport staff and falls in love with a flight attendant.

From Amazon.co.uk

Like an airport running at peak efficiency, The Terminal glides on the consummate skills of its director and star. Having refined their collaborative chemistry on Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me if You Can, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks mesh like the precision gears of a Rolex, turning a delicate, not-very-plausible scenario into a lovely modern-age fable (partly based on fact) that's both technically impressive and subtly moving. It's Spielberg in Capra mode, spinning the featherweight tale of Victor Navorski (Hanks, giving a finely tuned performance), an Eastern European who arrives at New York's Kennedy Airport just as his (fictional) homeland has fallen to a coup, forcing him, with no valid citizenship, to take indefinite residence in the airport's expansive International Arrivals Terminal (an astonishing full-scale set that inspires Spielberg's most elegant visual strategies). Spielberg said he made this film in part to alleviate the anguish of wartime America, and his master's touch works wonders on the occasionally mushy material; even Stanley Tucci's officious terminal director and Catherine Zeta-Jones's mixed-up flight attendant come off (respectively) as forgivable and effortlessly charming. With this much talent involved, The Terminal transcends its minor shortcomings to achieve a rare degree of cinematic grace. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Would you live 24/7 for nine months in the International Arrivals Lounge of a major airport for the chance to score with Catherine Zeta-Jones?
Say, honey, would you mind if I went off on a short trip?
Tom Hanks is Viktor Navorski arriving at New York's JFK. While in the air from Eastern Europe, his homeland of Krakozia - probably a chronic trouble spot in the Balkans - slips into a government coup. It's revoked all of its passports and, in response, the U.S. State Department has nullified all travel visas issued to Krakozian nationals. So, when going through Immigration, Viktor is told that he can neither enter the United States or fly back to the Old Country. The resident chief immigration officer, Frank Dixon (Stanley Tucci), allows him to stay in the International Arrivals Lounge - a overnight state of limbo that eventually drags into nine months. And since Viktor never got as far as Customs, what's in that can of peanuts that he guards so closely?
THE TERMINAL is built around the clever premise that you can, as frequent fliers can attest, lead a full life even if confined within the limits of an airport transit lounge: learn a foreign language, get a job, make new friends, eat well, acquire a trendy wardrobe, sleep, maintain one's personal appearance, and, if you're lucky, find Love.
Stanley Tucci is excellent as Dixon, who's at first in sympathy with Viktor's plight, even going so far as to stage manage a breach in security through which he hopes Navorski will bolt into the outside world (thus becoming some other agency's problem). Eventually, however, Frank's attitude hardens after Viktor embarrasses him in front of some government inspectors. Something about a goat.

This film on its own proves that Spielberg is a multi-talented director. Released during the time that Speilberg took a new turn in directing and decided to get away from the aliens and head towards true storys on a smaller scale.
The Terminal is a heart-warming story, that at moments can make you laugh and at others cry as well. The story tells of a man called Viktor. Who after arriving at a JFK New York Airport, discovers that his country is in the middle of a civil war. Unable to get back to his country or even step out of the airport as he temporarily has no country, he is being forced to live at the airport's lounge. He then goes on to meet new friends, get a job, and discover a liking to a air stewardess.
Tom Hanks who plays 'Viktor' does a fantastic job at playing a convincing foreigner. Sourrounded by a the likes of Cathrine Zeta-Jones and other fairly well known stars, thay make a great cast.
Theres very little to have a go at with this film except maybe that it does tend to go on a little sometimes. Its a fairly lenghty film, which is the only reason I didn't give this film 5 stars.
The Terminal is a treat for the family and with the joint efforts of Spielberg and Hanks leading the front, whats to dount. Highly recommended for all ages.

Format: DVD
When I first heard of the Terminal it grasped me as a film built around an experience but this film actually impressed and surprised me because it goes beyond the experience of being stuck in an airport in the contemporary world we are in and embraces the atmosphere of a cosmopolitan world with the airports of it being the hub.
Throughout the film you can't help but be amazed and entertained by this character's journey, realistic as it is and multi-dimensional as it captures his experiences with other characters who are quite expertly by Spielberg, introduced throughout the film. To add to which it is all done with a style that is oustanding, well edited, beautifully phased in and out of scenes and chronologically executed masterfully.
The unfortunate factor for Terminal is, it doesn't have Goblins, Aliens or a huge war atmosphere. It doesn't embody dramatic characters from history like Gangsters or Politicians. Quite simply the individuals on display are everyday people doing everyday jobs but that's what makes the plot of the film unique and entertaining.
In everyway a technically brilliant film but it entertains like a great film as well.

Format: DVD
At $20,000,000+ per movie, Tom Hanks always delivers. This movie takes the hustle and bustle environment that is a busy airport, and focuses in on one character, facing the problem of not being allowed to exit the airport due to a war being fought in his homeland.

Hanks character is "urged" to leave the airport by the airport management, because if he leaves the airport they will not be responsible for him. But Hanks discovers he has a sanctuary within the airport, due to not having citizenship anywhere else, and creates a life within the import, gets work, and even learns english.

We meet the various characters that work behind the scenes to keep airports running effectively. Catherine Zeta Jones plays the love interest of Hanks, offering continuity as a flight-attendant using Hanks to develop her character throughout the movie.This is a romantic look at one life within an environment notorious for busy people passing through.

The production of the movie is grand, you almost feel you know your way around the airport during the film. The large set which the film is shot in is large, and high budget, and also contributes to the overall authenticity of the setting.
