I watched Knight and Day with Gem yesterday =)
How was it? One word. “Meh“.
The movie was okay. It had some great scenes (like the car chase 30 minutes into the movie) and it has its moments when it makes you laugh or smile. I guess i thought the movie was just “meh” because i went into it expecting Missions Impossible 4 (meaning non stop adrenaline pumping action), I didn’t expect to get a romance comedy in the middle of it. Not to mention, my enjoyment was significantly lessened because of the jeje-moron who kept “k1ck1n6” my damn seat (Fuck ). So in retrospect, if i had aligned my expectations to what the movie is about (and if assholes who kick your seats didn’t exist), I would have liked it a little bit more. Just a little bit though, there are better movies out there who nailed the action-slash-comedy-slash-romance better. Off my head i can recommend True Lies, Mr. and Mrs Smith and Maging Sino ka Man (I’m being serious, this movie is a masterpiece. Robin Padilla is the shit).
Going off on a tangent, I noticed while watching the movie that Cameron Diaz looks really old, while Tom Cruise doesn’t look a day older than 35 (he should be 48 or 49). What’s with that? Did Tom Cruise sell his eternal soul to the devil or is he using some hi tech scientology de-ageficator? Just wondering. haha.
To wrap it all up, as I said, the movie was ok. How does it stand up to the rest of Tom Cruise’s work? Not that good. When Tom Cruise finally gets picked up by his alien gods and gets on that big flying saucer in the sky, we will miss him and we shall reminisce on all things Tom Cruise. What movies will we remember? What will be on his E! True Hollywood Story? For me, I’m thinking Top Gun, Risky Business, The color of Money, A Few Good Men, Jerry Maguire….
Oh yeah, and off course, who can forget this:
Sadly, we won’t remember Knight and Day. Still… you go Tom Cruise.
