Knight and Day has action by the boatload, cheeky wit, unexpected double-crossing, sexual tension, and the blinding smile of its star, Tom Cruise. In short, what more could you ask of a rollicking good-time movie? Knight and Day, which also stars the irresistible Cameron Diaz as Cruise's superspy's ultimate foil, channels the best elements of earlier films like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mission: Impossible, the Bourne films, and even a little of Duplicity's sophistication. Mostly, though, Knight and Day is about moving things along merrily, if not completely coherently, as the two stars tangle, and tussle with trust issues, in a completely believable, compulsively watchable way. Cruise plays Roy, an on-the-lam spy (who may have had some kind of psychotic break--or who may in fact be the only person telling the truth); he runs into the winsome June (Diaz), who gets caught up in Roy's mad dash to escape the cabal of federal agents on his tail. "No one follows us," Roy announces to a terrified diner crowd as he moves to make his escape with June, "or I kill myself--and then her." While Knight and Day, directed by James Mangold, has more than its share of high-speed chases, hails of bullets, and explosions, it works far better as a romantic comedy--for the chemistry between Diaz and Cruise is delicious, palpable, and believable. So grab a date and an extra-large popcorn, and get ready for a sweet and fun Knight and Day. --A.T. Hurley

I only saw the first Blu-ray DVD as it was rented. However I had a great time and was on the edge of the seat from start to finish. I really liked June Havens's (Cameron Diaz) attitude towards the end of the movie. This was just the right mix of absurd action and attitudes. Many movies have a similar mix of characters and plot but I cannot think of one that executed it better.
The basic story is that a battery of great power was built and someone is out to pilfer it from the government agency in charge of keeping it safe. Now just who can that be. June must find out before it is too late. In the process June may just learn a little bit about herself and what she really wants in life. The catalyst is a wild man with a broad set of skills and knowledge, Roy Miller (Tom Cruise). Is he the good guy or bad guy or just crazy?" any how it had to happen sooner or later; June in all the confusion clearly is attracted to him.
So sit back and enjoy this action packed comedic thriller.
If you like this transformation story you should like "Real Men" (1987) with James Belushi and John Ritter.
Tom Cruise plays a James Bond type of character who has been set up by a fellow agent. Cameron Diaz was at the wrong place at the wrong time--or was it the right time to find true love? There is a ton of action and comedy that ensues. The directing is superb. In the hands of a lesser artist this movie could have been terrible, instead it is a pure gem.
If you are looking for a realistic type of thriller, this movie is not for you. However, if you are looking to be entertained, like romance, lots of action, and are not too serious, you will love this movie.
I just wanted the move, so I cannot comment on the extra features on the discs. The quality of the Blu-ray was great.
Audio: The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio really gave the home theatre speakers a real work-out, with tremendous surround effects, like the car chase in Boston. Gun shots ping-ponged around the room. The sound was quite realistic, that made you feel like you were actually in the midst of the chase. (5/5)
Trivia: Tom Cruise received only $11 million pay for this film, instead of the $20+ millions that he usually received. The budget for this film was about $117 million, but it only grossed $76 million. And Tom Cruise actually dropped out of "The Tourist" to do this film. Of course, Johnny Depp took his place in "The Tourist". Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz did a majority of the stunts on their own. Both were avid drivers and had experience doing sharp turns and 180s. The car Cameron Diaz was driving in the chase scene was a 1966 Pontiac GTO with Martinique Bronze exterior and Parchment interior. Of course we all know that Tom Cruise personally owns a $2 million Bugatti Veyron.
Goofs: Errors in geography: When June was taken to Antonio's home in Seville, Spain, the city was celebrating the festival of San Fermin. Part of that was the famous running of the bulls, which happened in Pamplona, not Seville. Pamplona was in northern Spain; Seville was in southern Spain. Also, Knight's "tropical island" refuge was in the Azores, which were nowhere near the tropics.Read more ›
