Cruise And Diaz Shows A Lot of Promise But The Script Blunders All Over....
“Summer Escapist Entertainment” is the exact description for “KNIGHT AND DAY”. The film has loads of potential going for it with two big name stars that promises great chemistry, beautiful scenery, an atmosphere of adventure and voluptuous romance; executed with lots of explosions and stylized action. Well, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz can always deliver entertaining dynamics to a motion picture, but the problem is, the direction and screenplay just cannot deliver on all the …

As I expected Knight and Day really fails on almost every level as it attempts to be a romantic-comedy, an action-comedy, and a sexy espionage story. Part of the problem is that the story is so banal and absurd that you can't ever take it seriously, but it's also so dull and unoriginal that it fails to be funny. Neither Tom Cruise (who again plays a dominant male action hero with an over abundance of confidence) nor Cameron Diaz (who again plays a ditzy loud-mouthed woman in the wrong place …

You May ConfuseTom Cruise For 007.
I have been a Tom Cruise fan for quite some time now and I could not wait until this movie came out in DVD, because I was worried about what the critics were saying about this movie. That is why I waited to see it until now, sometimes you should not listen to those critics. This was an amazing action movie with a lot of special effects, adventure, comedy and a thriller all mixed together. This did not last long at the theaters, but that is their bad luck and my good luck, because now I can add this …

Quick answer: sort of.      Knight and Day is that type of film that tries to be a lot of things, and in this case it's an action-comedy-romance and in the end the result is a little watered-down. In fact, director James Mangold opted to use a "drugged first person perspective" technique to short-cut the action sequences and get the story going. This is quite disappointing as the film had an enjoyable opening action sequence.      This star vehicle …

Just watched this movie for the first time, and I'm pretty impressed. I'm a Tom Cruise fan, plus a fan of the action/adventure genre, so this movie was a must see. Good plot, good acting, and basically an all around cool movie.

Let me get this out of the way up front: I'm a Tom Cruise fan. Always have been. Sure, there's been some stinkers over the years playing Nazis, fighting aliens and the debacle w/ Kubrick (Eyes Stay Shut?)--but for the most part I've enjoyed his films because you typically get an entertaining flick featuring a Tom Cruisey-character. And lock, stock and barrel-- that's exactly what's delivered in Knight & Day.      Roy (Cruise) is a dashing, boyish covert …

3 1/2 stars:
In this day and age,  in this era of films  spy movies  are literally a dime a dozen. They are one of the action genres most common uses for  an action/ adventure  picture  and have spawned many franchises, T.V. series, video games. You name it the spy genre has left there mark somewhere to make sure that you never forget them   the spy game has had a very successful run in the films. Although never quite commanding the respect they deserve from moviegoers …

I'll freely admit I enjoyed Knight and Day - in which master criminal-cum-cop-cum-spy Tom Cruise embarks on an intercontinental gallivant, having (literally) stumbled into winsome, dippy and adorable Cameron Diaz - even if I don't really understand why. As I reflected on the film over the weekend it occurred to me that, critically speaking, I'd had my pocket picked. But at least I had been swindled as masterfully and outrageously as any of the many conspiracies in the movie. Before I realised what …

See my review on this one. Not as bad as critics lead you to believe.

Knight and Day is the perfect movie for all those guys who have sat through a chick flick they didn't wanna and all those ladies who have sat through an action movie that they didn't care for. The movie combines the best of both worlds.    Tom Cruise might have all kinds of issues these days but none of them show in this movie, he combines the best of his younger action days with some sly comedy that constantly works.    Cameron Diaz plays the the 30 something …

It is unoriginal, uninspired and at sometimes rather cliche but "Knight and Day" is the kind of movie that summer is made for and proves to deliver on what it promises. Great escapism.
