Knight and Day, staring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, opens in theaters nationwide Wednesday, June 23, 2010.
In what is being called a “sexy action-comedy” Knight and Day, Ray Miller (Tom Cruise) is a covert agent sent on a mission he was never meant to complete. June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is a woman caught between the agent and those he claims set him up. As their globetrotting adventure erupts into a maze of double-crosses, close escapes and false identities, they come to realize that all they can count on is each other.
The overall grade from the critics for Knight and Day is a C+.
“The movie is entertaining, but could have been better.” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“…when the action’s pitched at such a ridiculous level of hyperbole, the laughs barely have enough oxygen to qualify as wheezes.” -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
“Once the initial suspense over Roy’s intentions wears off, Knight and Day shifts from mildly intriguing to clumsy and predictable.” -Geoff Berkshire, Metromix.com
“Logic and plausibility take a holiday in this nonstop actioner that counts on stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz to sell the nonsense.” -Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
“…one of those movies that requires you to accept that every single time a character is presented with a choice, he or she will make the worst and most inexplicable one.” -Lou Lumenick, New York Post
Knight and Day was directed by James Mangold and written by Patrick O’Neill.
