The Terminal


theterminalWhen his passport is revoked and the authorities forbid him from leaving the JFK airport, East European tourist Viktor Navorski (Tom Hanks) creates a life for himself in the terminal. Itā€™s really a tragic story, but Steven Spielberg nevertheless comes up with a romantic comedy. It may be a bit too saccharine, a bit too protracted, but as a simple fantasy it does work. Hanks is one of few superstars who can play a regular guy in a credible, likable way; Stanley Tucci also gives an excellent performance, although his mean-spirited security chief is too much of a clichĆ©.
