Knight and Day
Rating: Didn’t Suck
This movie was a lot better than what I was expecting. In the same vein as “True Lies”, but far better than the recently released “Killers”, this movie is definitely good enough to be a date movie to check out. It’s a little too cheesy romantic to check out with the fellas, but there’s definitely a lot of action. People will have an easy time accepting Cruise in this role, he’s been very smart in accepting the fact that he’s a complete wack job and instead of hiding it, just finding roles that allow him to be crazy.
What you may not like:
-It does drag a bit, some scenes, while they aren’t bad, don’t really add to the story at all and could have been left out to make things tighter
-Some of the acting is sort of dead pan and doesn’t really connect in a way that makes you feel like they’re actually falling love
-Some of the comedic timing is off
What you may like:
-Lots of cool action
-Better execution than most of the movies that come out in this sub genre
-All the loose ends are pretty much accounted for, you’re satisfied by the end of the movie
-Personally I actually laughed, while during “Killers” I don’t think I ever did, here I laughed quite a bit
Definitely worth a matinee price, if you can’t agree on what to see on a Friday night, I think you’ll only feel partially satisfied with paying full price, but not necessarily like you wasted your money either. Not sure I’d buy it on DVD.
