Movie Review: Knight And Day

By Shaz Ferouz

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are reunited in this year’s summer action comedy Knight and Day. Its the second movie both of these A list Hollywood actors have acted in after the 2001 film Vanila Sky. Which was a pretty friggin weird movie if you remember. Previously titled “Wichita” and “Trouble man”, this film originally slated Chris Tucker and Eva Mendes as the two lead roles.

Apparently Chris Tucker didn’t want to act in the Movie unless Jackie Chan was included as well. He also suggested they changed the title to Rush Hour 4 for some reason. Seriously though I think it just came down to the fact that nobody would buy Tucker as a spy. This film is far fetched as it is.

Anyway Cameron Diaz plays June Havens who unwittingly gets involved with Tom Cruise at an airport and now her life is in jeopardy. Cruise plays a spy *que Mission Impossible Music*, not exactly like Ethan Hunt however he plays a less serious, cornier version of his Mission Impossible character named Roy Miller. Da Da Da Duh Dum.

I did like how the movie started but it slowly went down a path of big smiles, unrealistic action and predictable humor. The only saving element for this movie was the fact that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz were acting in it. These two A list actors took what would have been a B grade movie and turned it into something thats actually semi watchable. I’m actually a little surprised both of them agreed to take the roles.

It was watchable at some parts though and shot in various locations around the world. So if you’re in the mood for a generic Hollywood action adventure where the bad guys have such terrible aim that even after thousands of bullets have been fired shooting everything in sight but still managing some how to miss main characters, this might be your film. Otherwise you might want to save your money for Toy Story 3. I hear that might be a good one.

I rate this movie 2.5 out of 5
