I was’nt quite sure what to expect from the new Tom Cruise & Cameron Diaz action flick “Knight & Day”. What I got was typical action adventure which could have been easily the next installment of the Mission Imposssible(MI) series. Throw in some of Cameron’s sass and sexy appeal, plus her and Tom’s whimiscal banter and you get an entertaining action film w/ a sprinkling of a romantic comedy on the side. Typical MO in Hollywood these days.
Tom plays”Roy Miller”, a susposedly rogue agent trying to protect an infinte battery and it’s inventor “Simon”(Paul Dano) while being chased by the agency and real rogue agent(Peter Sarsgard) . Enter Tom’s mule June(Cameron Diaz) just trying to get her sisters wedding in Boston.
After surviving a plane crash the two travel the world trying not to get caught. Plenty of shoot outs and chases to keep you interested. With June not knowing whom to believe or trust she starts to have feelings for Roy. Ya think its’ coming to an end and then the grand finale and payoff.
Entertaining yet predictable, this should be the summer blockbuster their studios expecting it to be.
