Knight And Day

Cruise goes for the funny bone in this surprising action caper

Knight and Day review

“With me. Without me. With me. Without me.” If Knight And Day is about anything – if only – it’s about Tom Cruise.

He turned down the role of Salt to play an almost identical one here. Why? There’s one big difference.

Potentially insane super-spy Roy is funny. Really funny.

With Cruise pulling a hugely enjoyable pastiche of himself, KAD zigzags forward with pace, punch and even a little heart – though there’s a second-half dip where love interest Cameron Diaz has to hold the fort.

Clearly, we’re better off with him.
