Movie Review: Knight and Day - PG13

Tom Cruise plays Roy Miller.  it is soon apparent that he is a spy, but what is not as apparent is what his interest in June Havens (Diaz) is. As you see in the previews, he meets her at the airport.  He is carrying a new perpetual source of energy, which the bad guys are after.  The CIA claims he is a rogue agent.. 

Two elements of a good mystery are not knowing who the real bad guy is, and not knowing who you can trust. Both are done very well here.

There is almost non-stop action,  and many comedic moments. 
Both Cruise and Diaz are at their very best.

Content warnings:  Minimal; aside from one single use of the F word, there is no other objectionable language.  There is no nudity and no sex scenes.

I am seeing reports that the opening box office was disappointing, but I disagree.  It is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen this year.

An excellent movie:  SEE IT!
