Movie review by David Blackwell

WRITTEN by Patrick O'Neill
DIRECTED by James Mangold

June is a woman with a normal life- waiting for her sister's wedding and transporting automobile parts in her suitcase (those parts wouldn't make it past airport security.  She meets Roy at the airport.   Soon she ends up on the same airplane as Roy and all hell breaks loose.  Her life is changed forever as she discovers Ray is a spy.  First, she thinks he is crazy.  Then she knows he is trying to protect an inventor named Simon and Simon's super battery.   She is thrust into the adventure of her life as Ray tries to protect her from some evil Spanish arm dealer named Antonio.
 
KNIGHT AND DAY is like a Bourne film done as an action comedy that stars Tom Cruise instead of Matt Damon.   The film does have a manic energy to it and it is a charming popcorn film to pass the time.   Tom Cruise just cruises on his charm as this is a role you have seen him in before.  June is a capable character for Cameron Diaz to play.   The scene with the bulls is too CGI fake for my tastes and so are a couple of other scenes where the visual effects aren't up to snuff.  Still KNIGHT AND DAY is miles above in quality from JONAH HEX.   Still I would chose teh BORUNE films over this one and veen the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE films.   KNIGHT AND DAY is just a good two hour popcorn distraction.
