    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It strikes me that their teasing and one-upmanship are more brother and sister at play than lovers in heat. Cruise and Diaz are in it for the action rush. show more

    In the end, Knight and Day isn't really about much of anything besides having a good time or perhaps the meaning of Tom Cruise-ness in the universe. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    It's a quintessential movie hybrid: a romantic thriller with exciting high-speed chases, brisk comedy and exotic scenery. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The source of this movie's energy is near-perpetual desperation. You can see it in Tom Cruise's fixed grin, and in the mad proliferation of unspecial effects. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Diaz works that trademark mix of ditziness, sexiness, and brassiness. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Despite its impressive pedigree and unshakable assurance, Knight and Day is nothing more or less than an average popcorn flick. show more

    Laziness permeates the film from the inexplicable escapes to the neglected romance. show more

    Nothing Cruise does seems to come from the inside -- every eye crinkle, every grimace, every brow furrow seems plucked from the air, collected from the universe around him and bent to do his bidding. Maybe that’s one kind of acting. But it’s not cool. Never will be. show more

    An action comedy that works. But it’s also a surprisingly poignant romance. This is the summer flick you’ve been waiting for. show more

    Diaz has one of the most winning grins in the movies. Basically, what I wanted was more of it. Some of that Cary Grant dialog. More flirtation. More of a feeling the characters, not the production, were the foreground. More of the stars. show more

    Way too \'plastic\' in all the sense of the word: Fake, Insanly Choreographed, and just... an Awful Flick. Cruise is getting desperate, but good acting of Diaz saved him of a total disaster, thus my rating.

    Been watching it for about 30 min. Too silly with the comedic lines and Tom not being struck by at least one bullet when fighting against hundreds is just too Hollywood for me.

    Totally better than any critic said it was. Tom Cruise was great. I admit I used to love Diaz's body, but her acting and star potential is slightly less than this movie needed, but overall the action was great and the suspense was excellant from beginning to end

    I thought the movie was GREAT and I watch a hell of a lot of movies being retired in Michigan in the winter,lol. These people that don`t like it must be looking for some artsy fartsy film or spmething that makes them think.. So what if some of the stunts are outrageous and such. That`s why most of us go to the movies, to be entertained. This movie was really FUNNY and had alot of action. Miss Diaz is as cute as a button. Really not much of a Cruise fan but I really enjoyed him in it also. Rent this 1 and enjoy a really entertaing movie.
