The use of the unconscious scenes while interesting and also not often used while having a consistent theme and use at times were not well edited leaving the audience wondering about what and how the characters were able to accomplish what they did. The beginning sequences of this movie, however, were quite exhilarating not for the action, but for the close up facial shots of Cruise and Diaz in non-verbal human expressions that are rarely shot in these movies and made for some pretty fascinating cerebral contemplation and interaction not seen usually in such action comedies. It's good to see that this wasn't a film that was taken too seriously, thank god. Diaz is serviceable, but I'm still not a fan. While the chemistry works great with Cruise, and she is cute, I could see her being replaced with several actresses that I would enjoy much better. To her credit though, she did get a laugh or two out of me. Cruise's charm and humor added the spice in the film. His character here is crazy. Shooting an innocent man in the leg and surfing on a car is pretty hilarious, while also exciting. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the action.
Knight and day, though not entirely original, is perfect. It's the funniest, and good for watchable this weekend so far.
