Knight & Day is about a rogue agent (Tom Cruise) that hides a powerful battery in a normal woman named June's (Cameron Diaz) carry on case at an airport. He thought that would be it and he'd never see her again, but he finds himself having to protect her from the people he used to work with.

The movie is just fun and it may be silly that Cruise and Diaz talk casually during shoot-outs but that's one of the things I enjoyed about the movie. The movie isn't meant to be taken seriously, just sit back and enjoy all the entertaining non-sense. Out of a so far lackluster summer season, Knight & Day is one of the better summer movies. Don't listen to the idiots on At the Movies, this is a fun flick and I highly doubt the Killers is a better movie like they said!

My wife and I got a free ticket to attend one of three movies--"Predators," "Knight And Day," or "A-Team." It was a no-brainer. I'll wait for the other two to come to DVD to partake in them. My wife was fairly adamant about wanting to go and see "Knight And Day" right from the gate when the trailers were appearing here and there in different venues--internet, TV, DVD releases, what-have-you. It looked to be a ton of fun, and, boy, was it ever! There was so much wondering about what was really taking place as opposed to what was seen on the surface that it would be a bit difficult to explain it all here. Let's just say that Tom's character, Roy Miller, may have been a good guy or a bad guy throughout the movie, we just simply don't know, which adds to the suspense...ten-fold. His personality says he isn't, but his actions say otherwise. All in all, through all the guessing and wondering what was truly going on, there was a bit of well-placed humor and an exceptional chemistry between Cameron and Tom. They were having a ton of fun in the making of this movie, and it showed. My wife made note that the trailers didn't show every bit of the good stuff, leaving nothing for the movie-going experience. That was completely true. This is not a movie for all the tight-a**, boring, nepotistic critics out there. This one is for a great time out on a weekend and a soon-to-be great time on adult movie-night at home. One more note: Mid to late teens would be fine with the subject matter of "Knight And Day" as well. LOTS O' FUN!!!

This is what movies are meant to be -- great fun from start to finish with actors and a script and direction firing on all cylinders to create the most fun you will have at the movies this year. If you have ever liked tom cruise, this is a must see -- cameron diaz is superb and I cannot say enough good things about this movie. IT'S A MUST SEE.

Far better than I expected and yet, still somewhat lacking; `Knight and Day' is as fun as the genre allows but I was left wanting much more. I think the reason for this is the fact that everything `right' about this movie is VERY right. Tom Cruise may be one of the most obnoxious celebrities around, but he's a fun actor and he works that suspicious charm all over this film. I am smitten with Cameron Diaz (who I feel is highly underrated as on of her generations greatest working actresses) and she is all sorts of charismatically alluring in this film. The action sequences are non-stop and totally engrossing and the basic plot (a predictable twist off the expected espionage thriller) is interesting enough to hold it's own in the film. The supporting cast is a whose-who of respectable faces doing underwhelming things (Sarsgaard is demoted to predictably sleazy, Viola Davis is stuck in `Law and Order' mode and Paul Dano is laughably out of his element) yet they are forgiven thanks to the quick-fire pace of the film itself. It's like a `Bourne' films without the intelligence, but when all is said and done it's richly entertaining. It rides of cusp of greatness by teasing us with all the goodies it has in its bag, but I was waiting desperately for it to cross that line and really, really deliver.

I rarely watch a movie twice. I've seen this move many times. It is just that entertaining. My kids love it as much as I do. This is just a good old-fashioned adventure movie, with a creative story line and great acting.

fun action movie, doesn't really deserve 5 stars, but I still enjoyed it. The love story with-in the movie was very stylish. There are definitely times when it borders on the impossible or unbelievable, but that's what attracts us to movies in the first place I think. Nice work Ms. Diaz & Mr. Cruise.

No summary, character analyzation or storylines here. That has been written by just about everyone else on Amazon so I will focus solely upon the quality of the transfer of this film to Blu Ray.

VIDEO...A rather low bit-rate spanning the mid teens to mid twenties that belies the actual quality of the video transfer which is really quite good. Colors are true to life and naturally saturated. Plenty of details to be seen in darker areas as well as skin lines, pores and various textures of objects, so you know that no one went too far with crushing the blacks. At no time did I see artifacts of any kind. With the extreme chase scenes in this comedy adventure the transfer could easily have been prone to motion blur and stair stepping but I saw none of that. Grain, for the most part, is not seen at all. I picked this film up as a lark, on impulse at an inexpensive price and I do not think it is a 'must have' movie. However, I was surprised at just how clean the transfer really is.

AUDIO....The lossless DTS MA 5.1 audio is the star of the movie on Blu Ray as the editors and producers clearly put some real effort into creating a realistic audio surround field. Your left and right front and rears all get their due when their due is due. (Had to try that line). There is excellent panning across the front stage as well as between the front and rear sound stages. Foley effects are often discreetly channeled to all 4 surrounds when appropriate and your LFE channel gets a bit of a workout on the bottom end of many gunshots, car crashes and explosions. I did not expect the audio for this movie to be as good as it was.

Extras include a few broken up 'Making of' documentaries, a Black Eyed Peas music video and BD Live which I have never, ever bothered or had interest in using. Unfortunately, there were also the hated movie advertisements they call previews which just takes up space on the disc which then calls for more compression to the movie you have paid for. The Blu Ray I purchased did not have a digital copy on disc but just a sticker to download one via Vudu. Haven't done that yet.

All in all, if this film is your cup of tea...half man, half chick flick and fun to watch, you could pick a worse film easily. What I am concerned about is whether the transfer to blu ray is any good and in this case...YEP

All my reviews focus solely on the quality of the transfers to Blu Ray of both video and audio and I do hope that this review has been of some help to you in deciding upon your purchase decisions and that I am on the correct path with this type of review.
Thanks for reading.

Knight and Day was cursed with a zillion rewrites and many years in development hell before it came to the big screen. It shows. Boy, does it show. Everything in the film is so half-assed, superficial, and disposable that's it barely able to stand on its own two feet. Thankfully, the 'star power' of Cruise and Diaz, now pushing the end of their prime and peak, keep it interesting enough.

June is a ditzy blonde (a dangerous new role for Diaz!) who meets Ryan (why does Tom cruise?) at the airport. She is immediately smitten by him and is caught up in a whirlwind of adventure, leading from one ludicrous set-piece to the next, chasing a token MacGuffin, and avoiding a lame CIA bad guy (a quickly-aging Peter Sarsgaard). It's never boring, but the action is the usual post-modern trash with stutter cuts and impossible physics that do not once excite or take your breath away.

The 'CIA Bad Guy' plot is so old it knew the dinosaurs. The Agent-gone-rogue crap was the story behind Mission: Impossibles 1-3 (and in an inverse sense M:I 4 also), as well as 5 Bond movies and all of the Jason Bournes. Puh-lease give us something new. Knight and Day (a stupid, virtually meaningless title) had about 50 people draft the script. I do realize it's hard to conjure up genuine intrigue and plot twists but if you can't do it then you're not much of a writer. Probably why Hollywood loves you then.

An inoffensive timewaster. Do not go out of your way to see it.

The Blu Ray looks nice in 2.40:1 1080p with Dolby DTS-HD sound and a bunch of extras I honestly could not care less about.

After a crazy day at work, I was looking for a movie that would entertain me without having to use too much mind. And I found this. It was all that I expected of it. The plot was simple with lot of convenient loop-holes (which I expected and accepted). Tom Cruise looked older than ever and Cameron looked $exy as ever. The stunts, the dialogues, the "missing" chemistry between the lead pair - all just "tied" together.... but I have to admit still gave me "now-what-is-happening-amazed" tickles. Cameron's goofiness was enjoyable. Like I said, I didnt start with much so was not disappointed. You can watch the movie - make sure to switch your brain off. :)

This movie was a lot better than I had originally expected. It is filled to the brim with over-the-top action, suspense, and comedy. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz were perfectly cast together. June Havens is on her way home, and literally bumps into Roy Miller at the airport. After they talk on the plane, June begins to like him, but she soon finds out that Roy is secret agent and doesn't take it too well. Roy is constantly following June in order to protect her from Agent Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is after a perpetual energy battery called the Zephyr and will do whatever it takes to get it. I highly recommend KNIGHT AND DAY!!!
