knight and day

Saw this movie with the whole family. some love it, some not so.
Here's the review, read up!

the lowdown: A chance encounter thrusts a woman named June Havens (Cameron Diaz) and a charming but lethal operative, Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) into a series of adventures across the globe. As if dodging assassins and uncovering world-changing secrets weren't enough, she must now figure out if he is a good guy, a traitor – or just plain crazy.

what's the buzz?: Knight and Day is an interesting thrill ride with Tom Cruise at helm. You soon forget his crazy antics these past years and jump right in with his character's Roy Miller. Cameron is great as her ever loving goofy self. Her transition from an insecure single woman to an ass-kicking sidekick was quite wonderful. The action scene, great comedic timing and breathtaking scenery makes this movie pretty satisfying.

what's the fuzz?: The chemistry between the leads was not as convincing. Luckily, the movie focused on all its energy on humour and action. Also it could have been a bit better with a shorter run time and maybe a stronger ending.

roundup: A good comeback from Tom Cruise. The leads at their most charismatic selves, charming each other and the rest of us.

  1. I love the movie very much.
    I guess it's due to Tom Cruise.
    He's really charming in the movie.
    Besides, whenever he smiles, his face lights up in a boyish grin.
    Cameron and Tom do have chemistry but it's not as electric as some others that we have seen.
    Quite and enjoyable movie.

  2. yeah, few ppl are turned away by him with his recent hollywood behaviour. but i think it's great comeback from him.
