If you want to know what might happen if Tom Cruise starred in an animated movie- but without the animation- Knight and Day should be quite a treat. Knight and Day, like many animated films, dispenses with reality and provides silly circumstances and wacky characters. And yet, at the same time, Knight and Day is a surprisingly solid action movie. There are fun chase scenes, and legitimately cool fight sequences- all while retaining the film's zany, crazy tone. By all accounts, Knight and Day should not work. The blend gritty action scenes and cartoon-like humor is jarring, to the say the least. But the action is effective enough, and the comedy is funny enough, and it all lends itself to a very enjoyable popcorn flick- albeit, a nutty one.
June Havens' life turns upside down …

If one imagined, mission impossible mixed with humor, then the result is knight and day. Tom Cruise is a special agent who confronts Diaz in an airport, and says to her, better be off the plane in a difficult way to understand. She later realizes what he meant? Now cruise fights some people and says to Diaz, pilots are dead by mistake. This film is intended for fun, and it works. Direction from James Mangold, is seriously funny. He knows how to induce humor in serious action scenes. Cruise gets his shoes on and proves once again as an action hero. Diaz was good in her funny role. An action movie can’t get funny like this. But you know what I enjoyed the film.
So what’s the plot. It is about Roy Miller (Cruise) who has a battery which can be used for energy production. Some Agents …

An ordinary suburban woman unwittingly becomes the sidekick to a heavily armed covert operative on the run from his own agency and an international arms dealer when she bumps into him at an airport terminal. Knight & Day is EXACTLY what you'd expect from a film starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It's a cynical attempt to be a rom-com version of The Bourne Identity in a desperate attempt to lure as many undemanding cinema-goers into the theatres as possible; romance for the girls and action for the boys with big names duly attached. It goes through the motions of the same stunts, car chases, shoot outs and comic mishaps we've all seen a million times before and is basically the kind of thing Mel Gibson used to be so good at before he became a fat, ageing bigot. Unfortunately Cruise …

OK, its summertime and you’re looking to duck out of the heat and take in some good entertainment, right? Oh look, there’s a new Tom Cruise movie out! Hey, it’s also got Cameron Diaz in it too. The previews looked like this could be a good fun movie with some action and maybe a bit of romance. This could even pass for a date night movie, right? Well, I’d have to say right on all points.
‘Knight and Day’ follows in the path of such films as ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ and ‘Date Night’. Is it better than any of these? Well, I’d have to say it’s a tough call. Director James Mangold (‘Cop Land’, ‘3:10 To Yuma’) keeps the action moving smartly along, so there’s barely time for our two lead characters to develop their romantic connection, but they manage. The …

“Knight And Day” is Tom Cruise’s long-awaited return to the action film. If you are going to see this film purely to see Cruise complete amazing stunts and kill all the bad guys, then you will love this movie. If you are expecting anything else, chances are you will be disappointed. The first thing that strikes you about “Knight And Day” is that it seems extremely dated. The film would have been a hit if it was released at the most the early nineties, but now almost every aspect of it seems old and dated. June (Cameron Diaz) boards a plane to Boston with a handsome stranger, Roy Miller (Cruise), whom she is immediately attracted to. Little does she know, she has now become involved in a dangerous game of cat and mouse between Roy and his ex-partner, Fitzgerald (Peter …
