Tom Cruise does a great job of reminding us why we like him as a performer and actor. Of course he just walks through scenes. But what do the agents want, and why do they insist that Roy is the one to be feared, and not them? Definitely going to bookmark it. The twists and turns may have been a little unnerving, and the movie does suffer from being quite vague at times, the overall package is a fun one. Unfortunately, it seems like it was edited by someone with a samurai sword and too much sugar in his blood.
Paul Dano also gives a really nice performance as Simon Feck. Loved it since I love Cole Porter Music, old Hollywood movies that are really well done like this, and Cary Grant, Monty Woolley. You can sometimes go wrong with The Black Eyed Peas, who are super saturated these days, but they prove to hold their luck again here. Everyone else did a respectable job, but they consisted of dozens of small roles. Kudos to the leads for not carrying the movie with their effervescent acting, but also for doing many of their own stunts. I don't think this has the emotional depth that you'd think of for an Oscar; but nevertheless, I think this is a delightful funny movie that will make you laugh and enjoy an evening out.
Cameron Diaz is funny, warm,beautiful, and spunky. The break-neck pace can keep the audience guessing about where Cruise's character is dragging Diaz's reluctant heroine off to next. After crash-landing the plane in a darkened cornfield, Roy tells June that she should expect a visit from government agents, but warns her that by cooperating with them she risks almost certain death. Check out this clip from the show Shindig. If your expecting an Oscar caliber film you will be disappointed.
I had not expected more than a ho-hum old movie experience at the time. Will Jacob be able to protect Renesmee as promised? By the time June emerges Roy has killed everybody on board, including the pilots. So, in terms of quality, they deserve 101 out of 100. It's been seven years since the notorious battle between the Volturi and the Cullen family. It goes through the motions of the same stunts, car chases, shoot outs and comic mishaps we've all seen a million times before and is basically the kind of thing Mel Gibson used to be so good at before he became a fat, ageing bigot.
It's wild speculation on my part, but I'm not sure how else to explain the way this one went off the rails - it was entertaining for a short while, maybe a half an hour, but then it suddenly seemed to not know what kind of film it wanted to be, and the result was something to which I was indifferent, in the end. Their skepticism is given fuel when Matt meets Erica Shannyn Sossamon, A Knight's Tale at a laundromat. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are obviously having a blast, and anytime they are on screen, the movie's energy and fun level pegs the meter. And as they discover, they're better together than apart. I found it to be great fun, charming and occasionally funny, and I found the ending quite touching and suitable and funny.
½ An ordinary suburban woman unwittingly becomes the sidekick to a heavily armed covert operative on the run from his own agency and an international arms dealer when she bumps into him at an airport terminal. Forget the corny fictionalized screenplay and just sit back and enjoy: Mary Martins version of My Heart Belongs to Daddy. A great break from current movies! Were they not the keepers of daylight and darkness, Day and Night would be a couple of average Joes—Day busy with sunshine and joggers, Night focused on stars and drive-in movies. The only issue is that characters are revealed in such quick and awkward manners, but it might be more an editing issue rather than a writing issue. I watched it first in a theater at a Cole Porter festival, then a week later the Amazon Instant version. For instance, truth and movie are different in regards to: his sex life he was a gay man in a marriage of convenience with a divorcee friend , his relationship with his wife, Monty Wooley was a contemporary not Professor , and his French military experience was a hoax. Without revealing too much trust me, predicting the movie from the trailer will do you no good , Knight and Day follows a secret agent Tom Cruise that accidentally involves a bystander Cameron Diaz in the middle of a crazy fight spanning multiple agencies and multiple countries.
The movie however suffers from one major flaw: potential. No special effects, car crashes, or explosions. The fight on the plane is a both Santa Maria and the Santa Maria Remix combined. This movie could have been something very special if it had been given a little more love, a bit more budget, and better editing. Suddenly, Roy is back, and he's once again whisking June away to safety. Wry humor throughout pay attention to the dialogue and you'll be chuckling at something in almost every scene.
It depends on who she listens to. A song that Delovely totally butchers. The character isn't placed in any context, she's simply picked up by a driver, fed a dinner of Chinese noodles, deposited in a motel room, and instructed not to open the curtain or show her face at the window. I got the sense that somewhere along the way, the vision was compromised, and that maybe it was during test screenings, once the movie was already shot, meaning that the more marketable plot had to be pieced together from footage that didn't necessarily belong in that order, or in the film at all. This is strictly for Cole Porter's music.
We've seen it all before, but it worked pretty well then, and it works pretty well now. The cue from The Sonics plays in the background of the auto body garage before Louie Louie comes on. Just like in Vanilla Sky even if the editing and obscurity allowed the movie to collapse , Knight and Day is jump-started and propelled by Diaz and Cruise acting together. Speaking of badassitude, my sincere hope is that people will also be trying to track down the song that the trucker was seeing when the plane crashed around him, because you can never — I say never — go wrong with the Scorpions. Plausibility and realism takes a timeout as we get insane chases, dozens of explosions, and plenty of fights. What do you think of her? The story line is actually carried by the actors. What´s the name of the song and who play´s it…….
