Fluffy Action Comedy with Appealing Cast
Although far inferior in both concept and results, “Knight and Day” has its roots in the classic screwball comedies of the 1930’s. Cute, seemingly coincidental airport encounters connect an attractive blonde, Cameron Diaz, who is en route to her sister’s wedding, with a handsome man of mystery, Tom Cruise, and a series of wildly improbable events ensues. An early scene aboard a near-empty airliner is perhaps the film’s highlight, as Cruise does battle with unknown assailants, while a blissfully unaware Diaz primps in the restroom, intent on seducing Cruise. Perhaps if the humor and pace of this scene had been sustained, the film would have been more successful. If Cary Grant were the dashing stranger and Katharine Hepburn the unwitting accomplice, the film would have been classic.
However, while they are attractive leads, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are not Grant and Hepburn. Although the pair have undeniable star power and seem to be having fun, their eyes were likely focused more on the paycheck than on the superficial script which lacks the witty exchanges of classic screwball comedy. Also appearing for the money is a talented supporting cast that includes Viola Davis, Peter Sarsgaard, and Paul Dano; unfortunately, none of these gifted performers have roles that stretch their acting skills. With chases, gunfights, and rapid cutting, director James Mangold keeps the film moving at breakneck speed as the cast chases a “McGuffin” in the form of a super battery, whose importance is often lost in the sometimes confusing proceedings.
Although even the classic screwball comedies stretched credibility, Mangold’s film uses CGI to create sequences that are beyond preposterous. At times, Cruise seems to be a super-hero with supernatural powers; his close encounters are unbelievable even for a Batman or Fantastic Four. As the complicated plot unfolds, the characters’ motivations seem to shift, and the audience is kept guessing as to who can and cannot be trusted and who is working for whom. The action, light comedy, and appealing performers will hold viewer interest throughout, although, like cotton candy, this fluffy piece will fade from memory before the closing credits finish rolling.
Cruise and Diaz Got This!
KNIGHT AND DAY is one of the most fun you’ll have at the movies this summer. Fasten your seatbelt and leave the drive at ‘Cruise’ control. It’s non-stop action, entertaining, mysterious, thrilling and full of surprises . What The Bounty Hunter and Killers failed, KNIGHT AND DAY excels. The combination of rom-com and action is as worth watching as the chemistry between Cruise and Diaz who by the way are not only comfortable with each other, they really claim their roles and own this genre like it’s nobody else’s business.
Imagine a less serious Ethan Hunt from Mission Impossible or Ethan Hunt with the just the right shot of effective comedy, and you’ll have yourself KNIGHT AND DAY. In a way, it is kinda like the True Lies of this decade. Just like Jamie Lee Curtis, June (Diaz) panics most of the time and just like Arnold, Roy (Cruise) would smoothly save her ass from flying bullets. And Jamie eventually becomes part of Arnold’s team. But what makes KNIGHT AND DAY more interesting is its ability to keep you guessing who might actually be the bad guy. I’m not saying action sequences are not gonna be far fetched but this is the kind of movie that you just have to allow to be what it is because it’s got enough twists and turns to get you smilin’ and satisfied.
After Girl Interrupted, Cop Land, Walk The Line, Identity, 3:10 To Yuma and then this, I think it’s safe to say that director James Mangold’s name is synonymous with good quality films. The difference is, Mangold relaxes a bit with KNIGHT AND DAY, it emphasizes on making Roy Miller seem ten times more invincible than James Bond. There are scenes when Roy and June get captured but after a few minutes of unconsciousness and trying to regain consciousness on June’s part, Roy suddenly gets June in a safe place all over again. Sometimes it makes you wish you could see what’s going on or how Roy gets them out of that situation but you won’t mind it at all because that’s when the comedy comes in, along with the interaction between the two characters that will definitely crack you up.
If there’s one thing I think could be tweaked is that the runtime might be a bit long but hey, I’d rather have this than The Bounty Hunter where it completely doesn’t make sense how Aniston and Butler got around to like each other after all their annoying arguments. In KNIGHT AND DAY, it’s not tough for June to fall for Roy who is always there as her knight in shining armor, besides, girls love mysterious men. KNIGHT AND DAY feeds on that stereotype, so much so that when her opinion about Roy is compromised, they’ve spent enough time together that she can somewhat eventually calculate his moves, or at least attempts to. I think Roy is amused by June, he enjoys saving her, despite going through all kinds of trouble doing so. He admires her attention to family, the very thing that he as a spy is forced to leave behind. So there’s very little confusion as to how on earth that these two different characters end up in a wacky but convincing romance. It definitely helps to have Cruise and Cameron in the lead. Cruise is charming and badass, and it’s funny that his character remains polite even in the middle of chaos. Cameron is sexy and irresistible, because even when she’s panicking, she doesn’t get to the point in which she’ll irritate you.
