When a sports agent has a moral epiphany and is fired for expressing it, he decides to put his new philosophy to the test as an independent agent with the only athlete who stays with him and his former secretary.
Cuba Gooding Jr.,
June has a garage in Boston. At an airport heading home, a man bumps into her a few times and tries to keep her off the plane. He's under FBI surveillance; they wonder if he and she are working together, so they let both on a flight full of armed men wanting to arrest the stranger. He's Roy, he shoots his way out of trouble and tells her she's in danger. She's home the next day, miraculously, when agents pick her up; Roy saves her again, and a transcontinental chase ensues with Roy convincing her that he's the good guy, protecting an energy source that a rogue agent wants to sell on the black market. Can she trust Roy, and will trust matter when the bullets start flying? Written by
While leads Cruise and Diaz were promoting this movie they both appeared on the BBC's Top Gear Top Gear: Episode #15.5 (2010) where they competed in the traditional speed lap in the "reasonably-priced car." Their respective time records were 01m:44.2s and 01m:45.2s. See more »
When Roy is flying the plane he issues a mayday call to ATC, he uses the suffix "heavy" with the call-sign of the plane. "Heavy" is given with the call-sign to denote an aircraft with a maximum take off weight above 255,000 lbs which is not true of either the Boeing 727 or Airbus A320. See more »
We saw the Saturday sneak preview for Knight and Day, cautiously optimistic for a film that has had almost no reviews despite the fact it releases on Wednesday. To avoid spoilers, I'll make this simple:
The Good * Tom Cruise turns in a star performance, and Diaz holds her own. * Story has several twists and turns * Walks a fine line between comedy and action well (for the most part) * I never looked at my watch once and the film running time flew by
The Not So Good * CGI is weak and there is a lot of it * Can get a little campy from time to time * Predictable
Overall this was quite entertaining. If your expecting an Oscar caliber film you will be disappointed. If your looking for some above average summer fun buy your ticket without hesitation!
