This good-natured, though intermittently violent,
action-and-romance combo sees an everyday woman (Cameron
Diaz) unwittingly caught up in the conflict between a highly
skilled but apparently rogue CIA agent (Tom Cruise) and his
former colleagues (led by Viola Davis and Peter Sarsgaard) as
they battle each other and an evil Spanish arms dealer (Jordi
Molla) for possession of a recently invented (by young geek
Paul Dano) energy source with revolutionary potential.
Director and co-writer James Mangold's breezy diversion takes
a largely bloodless toll on the extras while the adroitly
portrayed central relationship progresses, for the most part,
Watch out for: Frequent, though mostly nongraphic, action
violence, at least one use of profanity and of the F-word,
some crude language, a few instances of sexual humor.
