SALT Movie Review

SALT movie review

 SALT is an entertaining action thriller that follows CIA agent Salt (Angelina Jolie) who is on the run from the government after being accused of being a double agent.  There are car chases, heavy weapons fire, and fight scenes galore in this film.  As I was watching the film, I was reminded of No Way Out starring Kevin Costner and Telefon with Charles Bronson.  SALT is a combination of those movies, with large doses of action added in.  Although I loved the premise, and there were plenty of twists to keep you guessing as to Salt’s allegiance I found that the more the movie tried to get clever, the more I was able to predict the outcome.  One scene did catch me of guard, which led to a cool action scene on a barge, but from that point on I was able to foresee what the next set of twists were and I was right. Despite the ease I had in figuring out the final plot line, it was a fun ride getting there.

    I agree with you… I did enjoy this flick though… But if every movie was an “A” then I would go poor paying to see them all… I have to add a “+” to the review because I think that Jolie is HOT (she is even warmer than our summer)… My wife knows I’m delirious from our heat wave, so I won’t be sent packing after she reads this comment… lol
