Complete list. :-(
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.

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
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.
Omg, bad scripts make bad movies! The plot was awful, if there was any. The entire film was focused on Angelina's actions scenes...
"Noyce seems to do everything in his power to make Angelina Jolie look like she's even capable of taking down three men in the span of five seconds, but it seems incredulous. That being said, 'Salt' is much more enjoyable on an entertainment basis only, and that's only if you can look past its gaps in intelligence." -fb701560354.
I am thinking of .....Jason Bourne....Mission impossible........No Way Out (ok, I am old....).. Alias and Nikita. And yet I was entertained, despite the overly loud soundtrack in the local theater and the OVERLY loud teenagers all over. But nice twisters in the story and even if there were loooads of unbelievable and surreal actions scenes, a film with Liev Schreiber can not be all bad! And Angie does kick ass!!!
angi ei petä koskaan
Some cool parts here and there, but the story just isn't all that well-written. It seems like the writer was flip-flopping between who Salt is really loyal to, and the ending left me thinking "OK. That doesn't add up."
There's a certain charm to its ridiculousness, until it all goes haywire.
it's 3am, why the hell did i watch this. (the 2 stars are because angelina jolie is an amazing actress and she's the only reason i sticked until the end)
Two seemingly unconnected impressions in my mind:
1) The first time I saw this film (in theaters, six years ago--how time flies!) I enjoyed it mostly for what it was--a derivative, well-crafted franchise-starter in the Bourne mold with a sprinkling of paranoia on top. There were a number of action scenes where I found myself distracted by how skinny Angelina Jolie was though, and that skepticism/worry for her health pulled me out and kept the film from quite hooking me.
2) I remember hearing a few months back, somewhere or other, that somebody.....possibly Michael Bay? is remaking DEATH WISH.
How the thoughts are connected, I swear: Remaking DEATH WISH feels like a bad idea for a great many reasons, but…
Worst movie ever!!!!
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
pick any 5 from this list at random and you have a great squad..... the possibilities are endless
