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

The name Knight comes from the real name of Tom Cruise aka Rob Miller aka Matthew Knight. Plus he uses a toy knight to conceal an experimental battery that can power a whole city. I am sure there may be some other knight symbols, such as knight in shining armor etc., but the movie isn't designed to be that deep. Cruise bumps into Diaz (June) in an airport as they get on the same flight. After some innocent flirting Diaz goes into the airplane restroom and does some primping, trying to figure out how to hook up with Rob Miller (Cruise). While Diaz is looking in the mirror checking out her T&A, Cruise is being attacked by everyone on the plane. Diaz comes out, has a drink with Cruise who explains that the pilots are dead.
Later in the movie Diaz attempts to have a serious conversation with her former bf. As she explains about the airplane, he ignores her and tries to talk about "the relationship." The movie is filled with these numerous turn arounds, most of which come near the end. One chase scene reminded us of that "Mission Impossible" criticized impossible train explosion scene, as Cruise jumps to the wind shield of an automobile which Diaz is driving. Crusie jumps around building tops like The Phantom and at one point Diaz models a red bikini for us. Eventually Diaz gets into the whole spy thing and decides to take matters in her own hands. The movie is fun and clever. The action has impossible chase scenes, but what action movie doesn't. It would make a great date movie.
Occasional dropping of the F-bomb.
The plot(and a word to the wise,the following contains spoilers)involves one Roy Miller(Tom Cruise)who is an FBI agent and is now on the run from his colleagues.He and a comrade,John Fitzgerald(Peter Sarsgaard),were protecting an important young scientist,one Simon Feck(Paul Dano),who created a seemingly unlimited supply of energy built into a small battery.A Spanish arms dealer who also wants the battery,has turned Fitzgerald,and when Fitzgerald tries to get Feck away from Miller,all hell breaks loose.Miller runs and hides Feck in a safe place,and flees on a plane,but it is Miller who is made out to be the bad guy by Fitzgerald.Here is where the movie really begins for us as Miller arrives at the airport and is in the process of waiting for his plane.It is here he literally runs into Diaz(June Havens) and places the battery into her luggage knowing her belongings will be searched ,as she is carrying car parts to rebuild an old car of her fathers.
Both Miller and Havens are on the same flight to Boston but as Havens tries to board she is told there are suddenly no seats.Read more ›
Diaz is a regular girl who bumps into Cruise in the airport - Cruise is a rogue agent who's the good guy but Diaz can't figure if this is true or not since Cruise's ex-agency keeps telling her otherwise. There's an item that everyone wants and Cruise just wants to do the right thing. Diaz get's stuck in a rollercoaster of action and near-death experiences but it's all very fun to watch.
This is one of those you can watch again in a couple of months. Great movie!
As for purchasing, it was very cheap and arrived very fast.
and they all lived happily ever after.
