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.
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.
BOX OFFICE. 💰💰💰 💲293.5 million
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
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.
is there anything better than watching angelina jolie fight other people

Decent little cold war, double agent thriller.
Angelina Jolie does carry it off, and the stunts were pretty decent.
Pretty predictable in the end though for a paint by numbers action thriller.
Nota = 5
Angelina Jolie kicking ass. That is all.
Tons of fun. Exteemely entertaining and rewatchable, but deeply flawed. 6.5/10.
I enjoyed Salt more than I expected. Yes, in many ways it was the somber, po-faced affair that the trailers suggested, but the plotting surprised me. The cold war basis was utterly ludicrous, but allowed the film to hark back to a thriller genre and style I've really missed. While the denouement was utterly predictable, getting there wasn't completely formulaic, and I liked the way Salt's legitimacy was kept open until the final minutes and created an unfamiliar conflict in the audience, rooting for a lead who....couldn't be, could she? Jolie is typically luminous, and JN Howard's music is above thriller average. Noyce has never been my favourite action director, but his set pieces here have a decent intensity and…
why the fuck did Orlof go to the Cia? why the fuck did he say Salt's name? why the fuck did they let them shoot that draft?
