Overview: Big screen superstars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz come together in this fun, action-packed thrill-ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. When a small-town girl named June (Diaz) meets a mysterious stranger, she thinks she’s found the man of her dreams. But she soon discovers he’s a fugitive super-spy, who thrusts her into a thrilling cat-and-mouse chase that spans the globe. As the bullets and sparks fly, June must decide if her “Knight” in shining armor is a dangerous traitor or the love of her life.
Review: June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is woman traveling to Boston. Her line of work is restoring old cars. Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) is a phenomenal spy. He can fly planes, kill bad guys, and kick ass, and look good while doing it. But Roy is a government agent that ‘goes rogue’ when he’s framed for attempting to steal a top secret renewable energy source. In order to help clear his name, he actually does steal the energy source, kidnaps its fresh-out-of-high-school creator. While at the airport, Roy bumps into June and uses her bag to smuggle an item of great importance. She is unaware of his hidden agenda until later on.
From then on, we get to watch June and Roy travel the globe. Of course, there’s the double-crossing, close escapes, false identities, and head-spinning romantic snafus, which they come to realize that all they can count on is on each other.
Anyways, I feel for Tom Cruise whose gotten some really bad publicity as well as the negative reviews from this movie mainly because of his past behavior. But one has to see this movie with a tongue in cheek attitude. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz sizzle together, there’s a lot of funny humor all through out the movie.
Director James Mangold did amazing job with his camera angles. He kept the camera steady especially during the action sequence scenes. It’s a fast-paced action flick with incredible car chase special effects. The only negative thing I had with the film is that there were more than enough facial close up shots on screen. You can really tell on Blu-Ray that both Diaz and Cruise have aged a bit with those close up shots but they still look good on screen.
