Jolie's shallow, ludicrous thriller has lots of violence.

This spy thriller suffers from several problems, even though it is fast and entertaining at any moment. It it taking the uncertain loyalties theme so far that you actually question the heroine's motifs, with estranging results. When you really think about it, the following plot twists are not all that surprising, if you paid attention. It also doesn't help that Jolie has seen better days. That being said, the film is well shot and has a few quite spectacular action sequences. The fact that the ending very obviously tries to opt for a sequel does not make it much more likable, though. Entertaining, but forgettable.

img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif/img] While it's highly forgettable, and flawed in so many places, Salt is hard evidence and proof that film makers who produce ludicrously plotted action thrillers, still have the capability to make a brilliant movie. As opposed to the Transformer-esque blockbusters released in recent years this big budget thriller is well acted, well written, well directed and above all more thrilling than action movies that have been churned out lately. But the most amazing thing is, it's actually never boring, it's got an interesting "hero" portrayed with absolute dedication from Angelina Jolie that's enigmaticity kept me glued to the screen even more so than the breathtaking action set pieces. It isn't perfect but what it unexpectedly does right, is something to admire.

"Then you are a Russian spy". So cheesy. Hated all the dialogue in this movie. "Salt" so desperately wants to be like the Bourne series but falls flat. Chiwetel Ejiofor... I've had enough of your stale acting. The plot? Exudes cheesiness and an unbearable personality. I know many agree but are merciful because of the great action scenes. Sorry, I didn't see any great action scenes; there were some nice shots... but other then that, this movie was a bore, annoying, and SUPER cheesy.
