Who is Salt?
As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt's efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: "Who is Salt?"
Couldn't have cared less about whether she was a Russian spy or not. Seriously, the plot in this is so nonsensical and boring, it's not even a joke. Humourless, baffling and uneventful.
Would have been better with some pepper dashed across it.
Now lets be honest here, Angelina Jolie is a very attractive woman.
She is also a very good actress.
But most of all, Angelina Jolie, is one complete bad ass.
She can kick ass more than any man. And as Evelyn Salt she gets many chances to do just that. For Salt is a film that embraces its own ridiculousness, and Phillip Noyce sets out to give us one brilliantly soundtracked, expertly choreographed action scene after the other.
It is genuinely exhilarating. Very enjoyable, and utterly ridiculous.
What's not to like?
But of course, best of all, Angelina Jolie is a very attractive woman.
Oh, and a very good actress.
Black definitely suits her better than blonde.
That's normally Kurt Wimmer's fap material, you know... That is why the film briefly stinks like Ultraviolet.
Angelina Jolie is Jason Bourne. She looks a lot older than when I last seen her not to be shallow.
Salt-->Alternative title "Forget Physics Exist"
How the hell is she jumping miles down the elevator shaft with no bionic parts or mutant powers? Knocks out every guy with a single punch. Jumps between speeding vehicles with precison timing, car wrecks are not a problem, she'll just walk away.
You could see the end coming a mile away, but Salt is still a fun film and I think part of that has to do with Jolie doing her best to sell you on it. I would definitely see a sequel.
Though it's far from the most intelligent of movies, Salt has some exciting chase sequences, and it manages to patch over most of its plot holes. The fight scenes are a little lame, though - Jolie keeps coming back to the same move - and as the predictable climax approaches, we see the pieces starting to come together not to deliver a satisfying ending, but rather, to set up a sequel. Considering that the lead role was written for, then turned down by, Tom Cruise, Jolie acquits herself quite well, and I thought Liev Schreiber turned in a strong supporting performance - but otherwise, the acting and the dialogue ranked between poor and mediocre, and by the time you reach the un-ending, most of the wind has come out of the sails of what might otherwise have been a decent, straight-ahead action flick.
Nominated Best Sound Mixing
Otra vez, la cara de Angelina Jolie actuando, se nota q sabe actuar, no lo hace, pero se nota q sabe.
No esta mal la peli, es bien evidente y exagerada, como a todos los sin cerebro les gusta.
Essentially a female Bourne movie. Angelina Jolie plays a CIA officer accused of being a Russian spy. Is she isn't she? YOu find out at the end.
Confusing - and I mean really confusing - plot.
But hey, Angelina Jolie kicks ass to make up for it.
Nice little actioner with a stupid storyline. Pure and simple entertainment, what else do you need. :)
Next on my rewatch-list: Wanted...
not too bad if you watch it thinking that its a parody of something.
The latest Angelina's movie "Salt" is a very fine action thriller. It has all the cliches of other movies but the difference is that they are done perfectly well! I read somewhere that it was like "a rebuke to all the lousy action movie directors who've been banging pots and pans together in our skulls". Well said!
In this gloriously absurd performance, where all laws of physics are suspended, this fine-looking woman is showing us why she gets the big dollars for every movie! I want be spending ink writing about the plot - for you is enough to say that she is a woman determined to singlehandedly save the world... with lots of surprises which will keep you on the seat until the end of the movie!
Enjoy this movie and actress with an animal energy!
Neat little spy flick that is very entertaining. Great cast, too.
Skipped the Theatrical Cut and went for the Director's Cut on the Blu-Ray. Overall an entertaining, if not very realistic, mix of The Manchurian Candidate and The Bourne movies.
SALT is a really good action thriller with Angelina Jolie. Jolie hasn't really impressed me much as an actress but she's really good here. Evelyn Salt (Jolie) is a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian mole. To say much more about the plot would spoil the film and every twist and turn it takes you on. As I have previously stated Jolie is very good here but so is Liev Schrieber as a co-worker of Salt's. Chiwetel Ejiofor is strong here as well as the CIA agent who does not trust Salt at all. Director Philip Noyce keeps the action coming and holds the viewers interest throughout. SALT is a film that will keep you riveted from…
