A classic in my book

The Terminal is a classic film, a very unique one. I say that it is unique because I truly can't think of a another film like it. The plot revolves around Tom Hanks's character, a foreign man traveling from a country that is in ruins and now he cannot go back to his country because it no longer exists, but the airport can't let him go into America either, so he has no choice but to stay in the terminal. Stanley Tucci plays the man working at the airport who is basically in charge. He quickly becomes the antagonist in the film, and he plays that role well, Tucci has flexed his acting muscle in other great movies such as Devil wears prada, Julie and Julia, and more, and this one is no exception. Hanks ofcourse shines in the lead role, as he always does, I remember being amazed at the accent and how great he nails it, I also love how he portrayed Victor, his character. Hanks plays Victor with a lovability that's just undeniable. That lovability is crucial for this character, it must be expressed through him in order for the entire film to work in the way it's supposed to be. Then there's Catherine Zeta Jones. I absolutely love her and her character in this film. She plays a fight attendant that frequently comes to the airport that Victor is at, and he develops feelings for her. They have great chemistry together and I couldn't take my eyes away from the screen when they are together. Theirs isn't a grand epic love story, but it's a very sweet endearing one, and it works perfectly for the movie. The writing really is great and I love it has some comedy and sweet, touching moments. It's very balanced, and it makes for a great film.

Charming Spielberg/Hank comedy

I watched this again recently with my 16yr old son, who enjoyed it he was laughing and smiling throughout. I explained to him this is based on a trued story of Merhan Nasseri who lived in Frances main airport for 18 years which in itself is remarkable. I've seen a few negative reviews on this movie and personally I don't see why.

They made the movie their own and in a comedic style and for me they pulled it off, yes of course you have to suspend belief with the likes of Zeta Jones who looks stunning in this falling for Viktor (Hanks) I mean would Zeta Jones fall for a much older guy in real life.....oh wait

Hers is a tragic character and I dare say there is some woman who are like that, keep falling for the wrong guy and keep going back for more. The other sad character was played by Diego Luna stalking, yes lets be fair stalking Zoe Saldana and getting Viktor to get info from her then eventually presenting her with a ring. She still had no idea who was interested in her c'mon this is really where you have to suspend belief.

Give this movie a go it's up there with "Catch me if you can" another Spielberg/Hanks movie as an easy watch that is quite charming and sweeps you up.

For The Dreamer In Us

Movie Review: "The Terminal" (2004)

Actor Tom Hanks carries this tragic as comical picture on his sole shoulders with the real-life-inspired, romanticized story of fictitious Viktor Navorski, arriving at JFK airport in the state of New York, USA, while his former country seizes to exist, when the charming, yet automatically-reminiscence to "Forrest Gump" (1994), spoils the experience of an slightly-lengthy 120-Minute-Editorial by Amblin Entertainment's man of trust editor Michael Kahn, when Director Steven Spielberg pulls magic tricks by the shots of splendid moments in the heart-warming love story of homeless Viktor & Amelia the stewardess, portrayed by eye-catching as beat-striking Catherine Zeta-Jones, at age 34, to a fairy tale conclusion not without having a couple of visual surprises by Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski in ultra-movable camera motions as light transitions, down to miss-placed handheld shots, especially at scenes of costumes chief inspector Frank Dixon, performed by suspense as conflict-sharing actor Stanley Tucci, delegating backstage business with costume officer Dolores Torres, played by ensemble-completing actress Zoe Saldana, in forth-coming realms of an imaginative airport wonderland with massive budget-raising product placements for any audience to buy in.

The third collaboration between Director Steven Spielberg and Actor Tom Hanks presents itself as quality motion picture entertainment as it can be expected by these two extraordinary filmmakers through decades of taking-seats in Hollywood's mind-set of the highest order. "The Terminal" is rounded up by another playful this time lounge-music-indulging score of romancing emotions by composer John Williams, when some of Spielberg's key players as producer Kathleen Kennedy and production designer Rick Carter are substituted by "Men In Black" movie-series-producing Laurie MacDonald and Alex McDowell in realism-preaching production design, when the high-standard screenplay by industrial professional Jeff Nathanson becomes the ideal project for the director's vision of happy endings and portions of magical realism for the dreamer in all of us.
