I was up in the air on Salt. I love my action films but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to see another Action- Jolie. I am glad I took a chance on this one. Some have compared this to a female Bourne Identity but I beg to differ. No one can top Matt Damon as Bourne.
I don’t want to summarize the film because there our a few twist that I found a bit shocking. I will give you some high and low points.
- At first you think she is good, then she is bad and then she is back good or is it bad. This film was a mind jumble trying to figure out what side Salt is on!
- The ending leaves room for a sequel.
- Want to know what Angelina would look like as a man. Watch this film.
- I like Liev Schreiber(Winter) just like the next person but his flat, unemotional performance was less than desireable.
- Some parts of the film seemed to drag. I thought I was in a two and a half hour film. The real running time is only an hour and thirty-nine minutes. This could be due to the huge breaks in between action sequences during the film. This is no Die Hard!
I give this film 2/3 stars. Rent It!
