A very stylish neo-noir movie, Terminal starring Margot Robbie, is a truly unique revenge based thriller with a great central mystery that will keep you guessing.

In the vast tapestry of cinematic neo-noirs, Terminal emerges as a visually stunning, if sometimes confounding, exploration of deceit, double-crossings, and dark dealings.

The film is set in the neon-lit, shadowy realms of an unspecified city. It dances between genres, blending elements of crime, thriller, and dark comedy, while revelling in its own stylish excesses.

Boasting an all-star cast that includes Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher and Mike Myers, director Vaughn Stein has created a gripping revenge based thriller.


So what is it all about and is it worth watching?

What Is Terminal About?

Terminal unfolds in an unnamed, perpetually nocturnal city. At the heart of it is Annie (Margot Robbie), a waitress with ulterior motives, who spends her nights working in a dingy, neon-lit diner.

As the story progresses, we delve deeper into the intertwining fates of several characters: a terminally ill teacher, two assassins, and a mysterious employer.

When Annie's past and intentions gradually come to light, her involvement with the other characters becomes increasingly complicated.

The two assassins, Vince and Alfred (played by Dexter Fletcher and Max Irons respectively), find themselves in a power struggle, manipulated by an unseen employer and the cunning Annie.

Without giving away too much, Terminal thrives on its plot twists, constantly keeping the audience on their toes. Relationships are never what they seem, with betrayal lurking at every corner.

The terminal illness of the teacher, Bill (Simon Pegg), plays a central role in the narrative, adding a layer of emotional depth and urgency to the story.

Everything culminates in a climax that showcases the film's blend of dark comedy, violence, and drama. The motivations of each character are brought to light. And the consequences of their actions are felt in full force.

Is Terminal Worth Watching?

Terminal is a gripping thriller based on revenge as the lives of multiple characters become intertwined with murderous consequences.

It is packed full of twists with very dark humour and a truly shocking ending. So if you are tired of the same old type of movie this art noir thriller is definitely a different option.

One of the standout features of Terminal is its captivating visual style. The neon-lit scenes, paired with meticulous cinematography, create a dreamlike atmosphere that perfectly complements the film's noir elements.

Margot Robbie delivers a magnetic portrayal of Annie, oscillating effortlessly between seductress, manipulator, and avenger. Her layered performance adds depth to a character that could easily have been one-dimensional.

Throw in the complexity of the story with layers of deception, paired with the interconnected fates of its characters, and it really does make for a thrilling watch.

That said, while the narrative is engaging, the pacing can occasionally lag, leading to moments of disengagement. A tighter edit might have made the storyline even more compelling.

Plus some characters, especially secondary ones, felt underdeveloped. Given the film's emphasis on interconnected fates, fleshing out these characters might have added more depth to the overall narrative.

Overall Terminal is not your everyday run-of-the-mill movie but that is its appeal. The dark humour is overlaid with lots of violence but if you are looking for a unique film, with a great cast, fantastic cinematography and a very twisted tale, you will love Terminal.
