4.0 out of 5 stars The Terminal 7 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and light hearted, despite mixed reviews 8 Jan 2007
By Picard TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I liked this film for many reasons, the main being it was easy to understand thanks to its simple yet heart-warming plot, that opens up as the film progresses. Tom Hanks plays a Russian who enters a USA airport to travel to New York, but loses his own nationality as airport security discovers his country is in admist turmoil and trouble. So, as the troubled man he is, with a difficult language barrier, he has no choice but to settle into the airport to avoid the authorities. His expieriences in this chaotic place are both humerous and heart-warming as he falls in love with a regular american traveler.

The story has more to it than his consolodation into the airport, but its a good film if you want something thats easy to understand and watch, and does without the effects. Another great piece of filming from Speilberg!

By Joseph Haschka HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "What is the purpose of your visit?" 22 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
This comedy focuses on some of the flaws in the immigration system in the US and exposes how sometimes strict rules have to be bent for things to make sense. Everything starts when Viktor Navorski arrives to the US and is stopped at immigration on the JFK airport because his passport is invalid. That is where the nonsense begins, since even though he speaks no English, the personnel of Homeland Security talk to him really slow as if that would change his understanding of a language with which he is unfamiliar. Things just escalate from there.
Viktor's country (Krakozia) has suspended his right of traveling with his passport due a political war at home that has the country in total chaos; basically there is no country. The problem is that he cannot enter the US, but he cannot return home either, so he is stranded in the airport. The solution: he has to remain in the International Transit Lounge while his situation is sorted out.
Little by little we see this individual figuring out how to survive in this strange world, filling us with a sense of desperation due to his situation, but at the same time with one of hope due to his ability to cope and figure things out. Hanks is excellent in transmitting the emotions of this character, and his portrayal of a foreign citizen with an accent resembling Bulgarian is praiseworthy.
The film revolves around Viktor's problem and his relationship with several people in the airport. First there is Frank (Tucci), the acting Field Commissioner of Homeland Security, who wants to get rid of Viktor in order to have less to worry about when the time comes for the inspection that will determine if he gets the position for good.
