Number of Times Seen – 2 (11 Feb 2006 and 1 Jul 2014)
Brief Synopsis – A foreign visitor to the USA gets trapped in the airport in ‘limbo’ when a civil war breaks out in his home country and he is left without a passport or entry visa.
My Take on it – It apparently doesn’t matter what kind of role Tom Hanks is cast in because he always succeeds in becoming that character and makes us believe that the character is teal.
In this movie, he plays a man with little understanding of how the US immigration system works but due to unforseen circumstances, he must learn how to survive for months trapped in an airport.
The premise seems far fetched, but once the ‘rules’ are explained, we can accept it and go with the flow.
All of the supporting characters are fine, but non clearly shine because Hanks steals every scene as a funny Borat type character.
Bottom Line – Fun and light movie with a quirky main character stuck in an impossible situation. Hanks is loveable as always. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
