Movie Review - Knight and Day

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are back in this year's summer action comedy Knight and Day. It's the second movie both of these A list Hollywood actors have acted in after the 2001 film Vanilla Sky. Which was a pretty friggin weird movie if you recall. Formally 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 do the Movie unless Jackie Chan was included as well. He also insisted 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 movie is far fetched as it is.

Anyway Tom 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 called Roy Miller. Da Da Da Duh Dum. Cameron Diaz plays June Havens who unwittingly gets entangled with him at an airport and now her life is in danger.

I did like how the movie started but it slowly spiraled down a path of big smiles, unrealistic action and predictable humor. The only saving factor 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 that's actually semi watchable. I'm actually a little surprised both of them agreed to take the roles.

It was entertaining 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 hitting everything in sight but still managing some how to miss main characters, this might be your movie. 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
