Knight and Day is a fun action flick that knows what it is and is not. The plot isn’t the least bit complicated and the primary villain, despite being played by a capable actor, is hardly a worthy adversary to the heroes.

I’m certain Inception won’t be that big, but it certainly has the possibility of breaking out, but seeing how this summer has been, I’d be surprised to see it make it past even Batman Begin‘s $205 million domestic take.
