Movie Review: Knight and Day

knight and day

Last night, I was treated to dinner and a movie. Yay for experiencing date night again. We had 3 movie choices. The A-Team, Toy Story 3, or Knight and Day. Knight and Day won this time, but Toy Story 3 will eventually prevail. :-)

I had gone into this movie, knowing nothing about it. I’d seen commercials on TV, but never was able to follow. It seemed a bit more complicated than what my mind was about to comprehend at any time I was watching TV. However, I did walk into the movie at least knowing that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz had a new movie out together, and this was it.  (*high five* on that.)

I had a hard time following the actual story line, but following the movie, was no problem. From the beginning of the movie, I couldn’t stop focusing on how old TC is getting. Holy cow!! He’s no Risky Business sex symbol anymore. He’s definitely showing his 48 years. I understood who the characters where, and how they acted, but as soon as they started talking spies and espionage, I might as well had been watching a foreign film. The acting was a bit over-the-top, but the more I think about it, the more I convince myself that it was supposed to be that way. I mean, come on, bulls jumping over rolling cars. Right! That’s gonna happen. We can’t even get the bull to walk successfully through the bank drive-thru in the Capital One commercials, let alone jump over a rolling car. Ha. (Pardon me while I laugh a bit more about this.)

In all honesty, I enjoyed the movie. Tom Cruise played the part well. There were a number of times when his character surprised me, and to be honest, there were a few times when his characters bad boy image with guns blazing, made me glad I was sitting. ;-)

Overall, good movie.

Rated: 1-10 (now that I’ve had a chance to let the movie sink in), 7

Go watch it. Maybe it’ll make more sense to you (JK had no problem and rated it higher than 7), but I warn you…TRY to stay focused on the movie and not how old TC is.
