St. Louis Post-Dispatch
An action comedy that works. But it's also a surprisingly poignant romance. This is the summer flick you've been waiting for.

In the end, Knight and Day isn't really about much of anything besides having a good time or perhaps the meaning of Tom Cruise-ness in the universe.
75
It's a quintessential movie hybrid: a romantic thriller with exciting high-speed chases, brisk comedy and exotic scenery.
75
Diaz works that trademark mix of ditziness, sexiness, and brassiness.

Diaz has one of the most winning grins in the movies. Basically, what I wanted was more of it. Some of that Cary Grant dialog. More flirtation. More of a feeling the characters, not the production, were the foreground. More of the stars.

Nothing Cruise does seems to come from the inside -- every eye crinkle, every grimace, every brow furrow seems plucked from the air, collected from the universe around him and bent to do his bidding. Maybe that's one kind of acting. But it's not cool. Never will be.

In this oddly uninvolving caper, the size of skulls makes its own statement: The producers assume that audience interest in movie stars is bigger than audience interest in characters.
50
It strikes me that their teasing and one-upmanship are more brother and sister at play than lovers in heat. Cruise and Diaz are in it for the action rush.
50
Despite its impressive pedigree and unshakable assurance, Knight and Day is nothing more or less than an average popcorn flick.
50
Laziness permeates the film from the inexplicable escapes to the neglected romance.

Wall Street Journal
The source of this movie's energy is near-perpetual desperation. You can see it in Tom Cruise's fixed grin, and in the mad proliferation of unspecial effects.
