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!
KNIGHT AND DAY is pure fun. It is an action comedy that doesn't try too hard, has a lot of intimate moments at offbeat times, and is completely endearing from start to finish. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz click with lots of action, witty dialog, and great chemistry. Think of it as a much better take on the Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Cruise is a secret agent that seems to have lost a marble or two. Diaz is just a normal girl who rebuilds old muscle cars. And while it's easy to think of the movie as a parody or a sendup of all spy movies or even just Cruise's own Mission Impossible series, it isn't. It's not a farce or a spoof. It's just a tight, kooky, engaging flick that stands on its own. And KNIGHT AND DAY is rated PG-13 which makes it great to watch with the entire family. We watched this with 3 generations (from 5 to 75), and everyone enjoyed themselves.
The Blu-Ray version of KNIGHT AND DAY is especially nice, with fantastic DTS sound and amazing color and clarity. Honestly, I've seen it twice and could watch it a few more times. The last movie I felt that way about was the 2009 Star Trek movie. For a light, cozy, entertaining evening at home, KNIGHT AND DAY is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Maybe I don't dislike Tom Cruise as much as I think I do...
The Blu-ray disc would not play. It showed the typical warning about who to contact if there were any problems but then after that nothing.
The DVD disc played fine.
4 days later... Finally was able to watch and enjoy the movie itself. It was quiet good. Fast paced lots of action no time for romantic filler. No real bloodshed or language. (Could be shown on the Disney Channel unedited.) At one point the story even had me wondering if what I was watching was actually happening or was it really a "Beautiful Mind" moment in June's mind?
Regardless, whatever Cruise and Diaz were thinking when they read this screenplay, the finished product doesn't work. It constantly undermines it's own momentum at every turn with another absurd plot twist any viewer could see from a mile away. The script is rotten, the direction by James Mangold is poor and the grinning face of Cruise in this summer action vehicle grows more tiresome every minute. Cameron Diaz is not as annoying but pretty close, playing the ditzy blonde only half convincingly. Perhaps she's more convincing in real life?
While watching this atrocious movie I was reminded more than a little bit of "True Lies" since the plot revolves around a regular gal getting involved with a world class spy who can kill anyone and get out of any tricky situation. Well, the James Cameron directed True Lies is a true showcase of how to do a big-budget summer action comedy right. It's an audience pleaser in the highest degree even if the film is breezy and superficial. Cruise and everyone involved in "Knight and Day" clearly wanted to have fun in this same breezy, carefree manner and maybe they did but the audience does not share their enthusiasm. I was restless throughout the whole film, hoping that soon enough the movie would get interesting but it rarely did. The people I was with were bored out of their minds as well. Looking around the audience I sensed an unease, as if the people knew they were watching a big budget turkey of a movie. Many audience members were constantly getting up and going to the bathroom and this was in a barely filled movie theater no less. It was all just too whimsical, fantastical and really smacked of half-baked schtick.
Another horrible feature of the movie was the C.G.I. I have seen plenty of terrible computer generated imagery in recent summer blockbusters but Knight and Day has to be one of the worst. The highway chase scene with the flying, tumbling cars defied all laws of physics and looked completely absurd, trivial in fact. There was no weight to the action scenes at all. Compare this silly scene with the harrowing bridge chase in True Lies when two Harrier jets use missiles to take out multiple terrorist targets and then Arnold Schwarzenegger hanging off the side of a helicopter rescues his wife played by Jamie Lee Curtis out of a moving on-fire limousine before it flies off a collapsed bridge. Now that's big-budget summer popcorn fun! Knight and Day has terrible action scenes and can't even compensate for that with chemistry from Cruise and Diaz. It just all seems too preposterous. If you're going to make a semi-surrealistic action flick like this, then go all the way and stop trying to ground it in some of kind of reality.
There were a few good points I wanted to mention. One was the cool way the director edited the sequence when Cruise drugs Diaz, escapes from his captors and escorts her half way around the world. The sequence is all filmed from her subjective, semi-conscious point of view. A nice part in a bad movie. But when the roles are reversed and Diaz rescues Cruise later on, the same subjective viewpoint from Cruise seems stale and tired. The location shooting is also very fine as the characters globe trot everywhere from Salzburg, Austria to Spain and unspecified islands. Ultimately all the scene changes wear you out and you grow bored. Like I said before, if you're under the influence of some substance and it's got you all giggly, perhaps you'll enjoy yourself with this movie, otherwise you have been warned. It's one of the worst films either actor has participated in and easily at the bottom of the barrel for director James Mangold's career.
