June Havens finds her everyday life tangled with that of a secret agent who has realized he isn't supposed to survive his latest mission. As their campaign to stay alive stretches across the globe, they soon learn that all they can count on is each other. Written by
At one point while describing the battery, June(Cameron Diaz) jokingly comments 'The ring which never runs out of juice'- which is most likely a reference to the Green Lantern of the DC Comics. Coincidentally, the main antagonist (Peter Sarsgaard) has also worked as the main antagonist in the movie 'Green Lantern' released 1 year later(2011). See more »
The 727's flight deck has instrument displays seen on modern 737s. The real 727 is an old airplane, with almost no displays. Some modern versions have small digital displays, but not what the film shows. Yes, indeed the flight deck shows modern equipment, but it is definitely a Boeing 727, as can be seen by the fire handles, throttles levers, flap, speed brake and landing gear handles, Flight Engineer's station, and circuit breaker panel locations. The modern equipment only mean that this particular flight deck has been updated with modern EFIS displays. 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!
