Discussion[edit]

This is simply not a hoax. The Terminal is about to release on June 8, 2004 in the US. Everything in this article is true. -- Toytoy

Hanks is not a good imitator of foreign languages, just like most Hollywood actors. That he spoke Bulgarian almost without an accent is an extreme exaggeration. At first, I actually thought that Hanks was playing an English-speaker pretending to be Eastern European. Yes. Seriously.

Critics / box office[edit]

Surely this needs more on reactions ? -- Beardo 19:38, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. This film was one of the worst I've ever seen, and rotten tomatoes agrees that it's bad with 60%. Seeing it here without a criticism section makes it seem like a fan article. mr_happyhour 25/04/07 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 122.19.20.110 (talk) 00:26, 25 April 2007 (UTC).


60 percent on rotten tomatoes is regarded as the mark at which films can be regarded as fresh......if anything that suggests an ok movie, but certainly not a bad moviePLAYWERT 14:34, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Real-life "Terminal" story[edit]

In the news [1], there is Ghanaian teenager stranded in a Philippine airport a la The Terminal. Can this be added in the article? --Jojit fb 00:21, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


That is so not the story where the movie is about! This is the story about. Mehran_Karimi_Nasseri and here is the connection with Spielberg. There was a man really over 15 years trapped on airport. [2]

Image:Airportset2w.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

Time Victor spends in airport[edit]

shouldn't there be an estimation of the time Vic was stuck at the airport? it was mostly during the 2003-04 period, might just be 2004, I'm not totally sure but the movie does have references within it, that I think should be mentioned on Wikipedia.--74.60.232.185 (talk) 18:32, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

A prison movie?[edit]

An interview with the screenwriter in either Scr(i)pt Magazine or Creative Screenwriting stated that the structure of the movie is designed very much like a typical prison genre movie. MMetro (talk) 09:48, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
