Summary: There was a lot of action, as well as twist and turns. Angelina Jolie is a tough ass, as usual, but while salt was definitely entertaining to watch, the storyline was a dry, done, and out-dated. I mean Russian spies in 2010?!? Come on... It left a lot to be desired.
Excerpt: When an alleged KGB defector accuses one of the CIA's top operatives of being a sleeper agent, she goes rogue with her former colleagues in hot pursuit. Salt is exactly what you'd expect it to be; a star vehicle for Angelina Jolie that's distinctly lacking in imagination but executed with mechanical...
Excerpt: Angelina Jolie stars as Agent Evelyn Salt, the CIA operative accused of being a spy for Russia with plans on killing the Russian president to set off a world war. With Counter-Intelligence Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and her boss Ted Winter (Liev Schreiber) wanting her for questioning Salt has to go...
Excerpt: While watching this film, I had a huge sense of déjà vu. In trying to craft something original, writer, Kurt Wimmer (‘Law Abiding Citizen’, ‘The Recruit’) manages to do everything but. The whole plot smacks of everything from ‘The Bourne Identity’ to ‘The Boys From Brazil’.
Summary: If you can't figure this out in the first half hour wear a pointy hat for the rest of the movie. Truly trite and totally predictable. Who's the sleeper? Who's the mole? What can we do with a spider?
Excerpt: Lara Croft dexterity meets Bourne. Angelina Jolie is Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent accused of being a Russian spy. The confusing plot just overshadowed the direction and action sequences. This film could have been better with the right script and ending.
Excerpt: This is the movie that never ends. Not as bad as that cheesy song you hear when growing up. Never-ending movies are still somewhat lame. In this epic story of CIA agent Salt, the Russians are trying to blow up other countries to try and get the US in to trouble.
Summary: The premise is definitely interesting, but the emotional depth of the story sometimes gets glossed over by the action. That said, the action is non-stop and efficiently directed, really capturing an adrenaline feeling that continues for the entire film.
