Review

Mindless entertainment...

Knight and Day can be fun if you want it to be. There is no point going into this film with an Inception mindset. It is not a film that will blow you away, but rather allow you to relax and enjoy the ride. In a way, this is most probably Cruise most charismatic performance in a long mile and the aging Diaz; she still remains one of Hollywood most attractive and genuine laughter and smile package. The action sequences are a joy to watch, even if the suspension of belief is way over the top. The dialogue is cheesy, cool and random, but it is one of those films.

Tom Cruise plays a secret agent trying to protect and sell an everlasting battery. I have never seen a movie where Cruise talks so much, almost non-stop. While it may seem annoying at the beginning, it is really just part of the film. As for Cameron Diaz, it’s been a while where she venture back into her winning comedy mode. After last year’s dramatic turn in My Sister’s Keepers, Diaz is far more relaxed when smiling and being randomly high with that famous laughter and grin. As for the chemistry between the two leads, there are some noticeable sparks, but at best, it is only workable. The Austrian dealer chick is hot and worthy of a mention.

All in all, Knight and Day is pure mindless entertainment. It’s not a film that will stay with you, but its certainly a fun film what it is. Should we forgive Cruise for jumping up and down the crouch? Probably not, but at least, he made something fun for us...(Neo 2010)

I rate it 6.5/10
