Knight and Day (2010)

6/10

This is an energetic, kinda fun espionage is-he-isn’t-he movie but it has a notable problem in that Tom Cruise’s otherwise likable spy has murdered about thirty non-corrupt agents before Cameron Diaz decides, almost inexplicably, to team up with him. (There’s only one corrupt agent in the entire movie.) Yeah, his life may be exciting, she may have a thing for him but he’s a serial killer of law enforcement agents. That’s not the kind of thing is allowed to pass even, perhaps especially, for a government operative. The extended edition is largely better except for a really unconvincing bit of motorcycle CG stuntwork to escape a charging bull. It also seems unlikely airport security would allow Cameron Diaz on an airplane with the ingredients of a pipe bomb.

This movie contains a single sexual swear word and substance abuse and strong violence, unpleasant scenes.

Classified 12A by BBFC. Persons under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
