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
An 'Extended Cut' is available in Region 2 (UK and Europe), Region 3 (Asia) and Region 4 (Australia & NZ). It adds eight minutes of footage, mostly extended versions of existing scenes, as well as a new opening scene that better establishes June Haven's profession as a mechanic. The 'Extended Cut' was released on Video On Demand in North America, but as of January 2011, it has yet to receive a Region 1 release. (See the FAQ page for more details.) See more »
I've watched this movie at least three times and I like it more each time I see it. I have no idea why critics tanked it when it first came out. This movie definitely has 'staying power' and the goods.
I've come to really appreciate Tom Cruise's ability to provide some top notch comedy. It's not what he's known for, but man can he deliver some really funny scenes. Point in case, "Tropic Thunder". Cruise was absolutely hilarious in this movie. People who make their living being comedians would be hard pressed to match the level he obtains in that movie. "Edge of Tomorrow" is another. Cruise is a man who can deliver on many different levels when it comes to acting. He does just that in "Knight And Day". Cameron Diaz, who I normally don't like very much - does a very good job in this movie and her chemistry with Cruise is spot on.
This movie delivers a good script, beautiful locations, great acting and intense action. What more could you ask for? I highly recommend this film. It delivers on so many different levels. A great way to spend an evening!
