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.
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.

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
Great action speeds this movie through its paces. It's always fun going over the top when the scenes are this well staged.
A CIA agent goes on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.
Standard action and spionage thriller which unsuccessfully tries to outwit the audience with numerous plot twists.
Nothing in this movie comes as a surprise.
A predictable, shamelessly clichéd one, but enjoyed it a lot more than my first viewing experience when it came out back in 2010. Perhaps I became more lenient as I got older. Ha ha.
go off mother angelina
Jolie makes a convincing, kick-ass, heroine in this slick thriller that makes up for a lack of logic with decent pacing, enjoyable twists and turns, and some solid action set-pieces.
104 minute director's cut.
I remember enjoying this quite a bit in the theater, but I had no idea the three (!!!) different cuts on the Blu-ray were so different. The DC incorporates a lot of flashbacks, some more explicitly violent action, and an additional twist at the very end. It makes for interesting re-visits (I might actually watch all three versions now, knowing how different each one is), but I remember really appreciating the no-nonsense, streamlined pace of the theatrical cut. I think I prefer it to the more plot-heavy DC.
Muito bom, você fica tão confuso quando a própria CIA, muita ação, explosões e tiros. Versão feminina do Born
