A knight in shining armour?

Directed by James Mangold
Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Maggie Grace, Paul Dano & Marc Blucas

I certainly did not expect this movie to be so good. It's basically about this guy, Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) who goes around killing intelligence officers and arms dealers who have bad intentions and are also after a powerful battery called the Zephyr.

Unexpectedly, he meets June (Cameron Diaz) on a plane. They have bumped into each other twice at the airport, which leads June to think that she might have a chance with this good-looking stranger. Little did she know that she's in for the most exciting and terrifying ride of her life.

The lines were good especially Roy's. He says the wittiest things without meaning to. His character has a calm demeanour and one couldn't help feeling impressed with his fighting and surviving skills. Anyhow, June's character was sort of typical. All she had to do was act sweet and flirty when she first meets Roy. Then she turns into a shaky, panicky, screaming machine when she sees Roy shooting people.

I liked the ending though. I liked how things turned around for June and Roy.

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz had great chemistry in this show. This is the second time that they have worked on a movie, with the first one being Vanilla Sky.


  1. I love the sound of this movie and since you liked it so much, I'll definitely have to watch it! Great review

  2. I wasn't sure about seeing this movie but after reading your review I can't wait. thanks. I hope your having a good day ♥

  3. Hmm, I'm not sure I want to watch the movie. June doesn't sound like she's very interesting but then great chemistry ... I can't decide. LOL.

  4. I'll wait for the DVD, but I like the line in the preview.. something like, "I'll kill myself and then her!"

  5. Kah Woei: Oh, don't worry about June! Her character turns out well in the end. :)

    Charley: omg, I loved that line too!
