Knight and Day.

Knight and Day. 
DVD and Blu Ray

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in a comedic spy movie. Sounds like a hit. Yet when I saw a advertisement for the DVD release I was a little stumped it seemed funny and action packed. But why hadn't I heard of it. 

After reading online that the movie went through 5 directors and a series of rewrites and casting changes, I suspected it was terrible. I still sat down and watched it. 

Tom Cruise plays a secret agent who supposedly went rouge stealing a perpetual energy source the size of a battery. Cameron Diaz gets involved by forcing her way onto a airplane filled with agents and Tom Cruise. She doesn't know who to believe because Cruise acts totally insane for the majority of the movie. 

This movie is really fun, packed with a lot of decent jokes, funny sayings, satire and espionage. Like when Tom Cruise shoots a fireman in the leg and tells him he'll be a hero and probably get a promotion, and that it's just a flesh wound.

Peter Scarsguard plays protagonist to the two main characters but had no real character development and his whole character seemed to be a glorified extra.

It really is too bad that this movie didn't do so well in the theaters, a sequel would have been fun to watch.

I don't really know why it is called knight and day though. 

7.5 out of 10
