Movie Review – Knight and Day

A woman, traveling back to Boston for her sisters wedding bumps into a handsome man wearing sun glasses. He is on the same flight as her, they chat and then things start to get crazy!

Starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight and Day is this years Mr & Mrs Smith, albeit, without the tabloid speculation of romance on set. It is a fast paced, action packed movie that delivers fun, spills and more than its fair share of explosions. Set in various locations around the world, it does tend to rely on computer graphics a little too much and which did not seem to be state of the art in some instances.

In any Tom Cruise movie, height is often commented upon and Knight and Day should be no different. Although Ms Diaz is two inches taller, Mr Cruise appears taller than her during most of the movie, with the rest of the time approximately the same height. If they can insert Jabba the Hut into Star Wars, can’t they make Tom Cruise the same height all movie long?

Another thing, and this is perhaps more because of who I am but, if you are going to stage a car chase, and lets face it, all movies should have at least one if not more, try not to use SMART CAR ROADSTERS as the cars. Especially when the garage where the chase begins also contains a Ferrari 599 and what looked to be a Morgan. Seriously, its hard to believe any car chase where most of the cars are economic, cheap, and have a removable roof made of plastic and material!

Even though it isn’t difficult to pick faults in the movie, Knight and Day does its job very well. Its entertaining, fun, and puts a smile on your face. A good summer movie!
