James Mangold, USA, 2010, 110 min.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have inventive banter, run around, get chased, and dodge bullets in the surprisingly fun first hour.
After that, the script turns to serious, fills up with cliche’s and CGI, and ends with a whimper that the first half of the film did not deserve. The whole thing smacks of studio intervention. I would love to read the first draft.
This film wins the award “Coolest Safe-house” for Tom Cruise’s private island paradise.
