What Did You Think? Post your Knight and Day review!

06.25.2010

Despite positive reviews for KNIGHT & DAY (Chris Bumbray really enjoyed it and said it could help salvage an otherwise lackluster summer), the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-comedy opened on Wednesday to rather weak box-office numbers. It's not a huge bomb but probably not the huge hit that Fox was hoping their summer Tom Cruise action film would be.

Eager to find out how KNIGHT & DAY works for people who actually saw it this weekend, we want to find out what YOU thought. As we do every weekend over the summer, we'll be leaving the Strike Backs open all weekend and encourage everyone to post their reviews below or on their MovieFanCentral page. Please keep spoilers to a minimum and remember, no insulting people who disagree with your opinion on the film. Oh and of course, let us know WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TOM CRUISE MOVIE?

Was pleasantly surprised.

I actually really dug the movie. It was a fun time. Haven't really been into either actor for the past few years. Renewed my faith in them. It's not trying to win any awards but I'd definitely watch it again.

I'm really lookin forward to this...

Love anything TC is in...despite him being an alien in real life, haha. Not a fan of Diaz, but she's watchable. Mangold is a very good and versatile director (3:10 to Yuma, Walk The Line, etc.) And being this is such a dismal summer for movies I has it pretty high on my list. It looks like a good time, which is what a movie should be...especially during the silly season and all...

Loved it!

I actually thought Cruise and Diaz had great chemistry and it made for some awesome laughs throughout the movie. The action was fun, the dialogue was cute, it was just a riot. Cruise is still the man!

It was good....

Cruise and Diaz have no chemistry. He really needed someone else, like Barrymore or someone else. Not to mention that Diaz was looking her age. Other than that it was a good popcorn movie, some good laughs and lots of action.

I really liked it.

Folks.... if you're going into this thinking it is a spy movie you're going to be disappointed. It is not. It is a rom-com with Spies. I thought it was really good. I also think that the 20-something crowd is not going to like it, mostly because they can't relate to the main theme of the film, that of feeling you've missed what was down the road not taken. We'll see. I really liked it and the wife and I will probably watch it again.

Good Concept

Walking out I didn't like the movie too much, but as I thought about it I realized what the movie was going for. It's a spy movie entirely from the perspective of the chick who gets stuck with the James Bond character. You know how the chick always gets knocked out, drugged, or confined when the major fights and plot points are explained in a James Bond flick? Mangold did something different here where he made us feel like Cameron Diaz's character, lost, confused, and along for the ride.

This movie is not going to win any Oscars, but who gives a shit because its main purpose was to entertain the audiences and I thought it did a good job. Tom Cruise proved that he has the chop for comedy and IMO, Cameron Diaz still look good. Overall, I rate this movie an 8 out of 10.

Proof that you gotta know the rules

before you can break them. James Mangold was trying to redefine the spy movie with this flick, but you could tell he didn't know what he was doing. I really liked Tom Cruise in this film (and I'm usually not a fan) but I thought he had zero chemistry with Cameron Diaz. Also, the fact that they just knocked Diaz out started as a joke and became a cheap way to resolve situations.

Overall, there were some good moments but not enough to sustain the film.

Thought it was a pretty good summer popcorn movie overall, tom cruise was great in the role and cameron diaz was nice too look at. I mean the cgi was a little corny sometimes but it didnt ruin the movie for me. Story was pretty good as well so id prolly give it a 7.5/ 10.
