Knight and Day (DVD)
Advantages: Pretty funny in parts
Disadvantages: Romance doesnt work
Knight and day is a sort of weird action comedy film. It combines some of the cool bits of action, and some comedy. The problem I found with this film was the romatic aspect of it, kinda ruined the touch slightly.
Basically, it all starts off when Knight (who uses a spy name Miller) "bumps" into June (Cameron diaz) in an airport. Basically they both end up getting on the same plane, which the FBI have used to try and catch miller, but he kills everyone on the plane. After this, june basically becomes part of his "underworld" life, and there is a constant theme of trust, and whether june should or should not trust miller. Basically Miller says he has taken a battery that lasts forever (I did not quite like this bit, because a battery that lasts forever is not physically possible... but there you go...). Anyway, thats all the plot I am going to spoil, I will leave the rest for you.
Anyway, the film is pretty good, and has some hilarious parts, due to the way Miller is just so cool and can fight off like 16 guys whilst telling June he has everything under control. My only problem with this film is that after about 1 hour into the film, everything just seems to start falling apart. I get the feeling that towards the beginning of the film it was working great, but then the writers tried to change it (and the sad thing is, the change doesn't add any comedy or action, but more of a romantic feel, which kinda fails to kick off until the end, and doesn't really add anything to the film).
Anyway, overall, this is an ok film, I actually enjoyed it quite a lot. My only "recommendation" to the writers if you are reading this is please don't try to make it so romatic next time. if you are making an action comedy, make it an action comedy. not an action-comedy-romance. It just doesn't work brilliantly.
Summary: Pretty good
