Review

Wrapped in a recognisable summer formula, and saturated with some of the most hilarious and cheeky action and dialogue on this side of the millennium, Knight and Day is a delightful crowd-pleaser filled with the right amount of energy, humour and thoughtlessness for hot summer evenings. In addition to James Mangold's enterprising direction, an industrious and unrestrained Tom Cruise, and a delightfully loose and inventive script makes this one of the best film in the genre in a while. Never mind logic and realism when the stage has been set as well as Mangold does here. It should be said that the fun does dry up a bit towards the end, also when it comes to the romantic vibe between Cruise and Diaz, but luckily, the good old parents keep up the good stuff.
