Whereas 2010’s “Knight and Day” could not have been probably the most memorable motion flicks to function Tom Cruise, it served as a worthy summer season blockbuster that showcased the tongue-in-cheek comedic skills of him and his co-star Cameron Diaz. At one level, the unlikely pair of spies wind up using a bike, on this case, a Ducati Hypermotard, whereas being pursued by the streets of Seville in Spain (confusingly, additionally shot in Cadiz whereas the annual Operating of the Bulls takes place).
At this level, one has to query whether or not Cruise insists on there being a bike concerned within the movies he stars in, as that is yet one more frivolous, albeit extremely entertaining, sequence that mirrors “Tomorrow By no means Dies” in a high-speed chase, the place the pillion should sit dealing with backward on the gasoline tank whereas taking pictures on the enemy. They find yourself surrounded by stampeding bulls and dashing by the packed bullring earlier than performing jumps, wheelies, and zipping between two trams in a wonderfully timed stunt to finish the sequence.
Not like most of Cruise’s motion motion pictures, “Knight and Day” by no means spawned a sequel. To make one may have oversaturated the star, as he had already been concerned in lots of tasks that showcase his motion chops, not least the “Mission: Unattainable” saga that’s nonetheless ongoing. But, as a standalone stunt sequence, you can not ignore the motorbike chase in “Knight and Day” as an bold and well-executed efficiency, made tougher with the addition of a pillion passenger.
