Knight and Day

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 17, 2015

Starts very well. Cruise is terrific: energetic, kinetic, and with a deep, palpable vein of chivalry. It’s a humanity that grounds the popcorn derring-do. Which, at about the half-way point, starts to get kind of noisy and tiresome. There’s a sour Parallax View cynicism beneath the alleged high spirits. Institutions all rotten … I guess, or you could make that argument. But what’s the point, or where’s the remedy of doing so? Well, I guess nihilism is better than futurism.
