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.
Completely baffling film.
It's clear early on that everyone involved in Salt had no clue as to direction to take it in. Stylistically aiming for the Bourne series but this time with a chick but recalling old Cold War scare tactics by bringing up the KGB in goofy style. The film fails to thrill because you're not sure what stance you're supposed to take on it, the film is constantly action orientated but never grounded in any sense of impact on the story and the whole reason this fails is because Salt as a character is always hidden.
Are you supposed to be rooting for this character? It starts off going in a Fugitive root when things suddenly turn and…
Run...run...and run again!
Far fetched premise, but a fine action move nonetheless. Energetic Jolie gives it her all.
the Cold War is (sorta) back in this spy-adventure starring Angelina Jolie. The movie does a good job of going against clichés and delivering the opposite of what conventions dictate. What results is a film that becomes somewhat unexpected at various turns and that is greatly appreciate for this particular genre. Well worth a watch.
Der zweite Film des Abends.
Salt hat mich nicht aus den Socken gehauen. Fing soweit gut an, war mir dann aber zu übertrieben von den Verschwörungen her. (Auch wenn es am Ende lustig ist, wer der nächste US-Präsident wird.)
Ich glaub, weniger wäre hier mehr!
I liked the movie sort of but when I really, really think about the movies its kind of a mess.
Do Russians have as many films with caricatured American villains as we do of Russians? Some solid action scenes, an unconventional concept, and a superb supporting cast, but after a while the leaps of logic were just too far for me to jump. Still, more female-driven films, please!
Peabody: How many more like you are there?
Salt: Like me? None. Like him? More than you or I can handle alone.
Do you need a bit of salt here? Yep, preferably with large grains, because you need that when you watch this movie. Do not expect a realistic movie, because then you'll be disappointed. "Salt" is a excellent spy action movie that rages like a TGV. From the moment Salt is accused of the fact that she is a Russian spy who has been specially trained by some Russian extremist who has devised a master plan to give orphans a U.S. education and then send them to the U.S. to wait for "Day X" after which they each perform…
Usually when I hear the name "Kurt Wimmer", I tend to "meh" a bit. As far as I'm concerned, he has only managed to deliver one truly epic action flick; the brilliant Equilibrium.
With "Salt", however, just as with "The Recruit" and "Law Abiding Citizen", he shows that as long as he just stick to writing and away from the director's chair, AND use some time to come up with something original, he MAY deliver something quite exciting.
Throw some Phillip Noyce in the mix, it gets interesting. Real interesting.
I like this film. It's fast paced, it's action packed, it's surprising from time to time, and it's got Angelina's lips.
Oh, those lips.
Having a female lead does not save this forgettable action-thriller from mediocrity.
