5.0 out of 5 stars Relentless 11 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
Although I can see how casting the `All American' Tom Cruise would have been a hook, given the storyline, casting Jolie has probably produced a far more interesting movie and she really has excelled herself, a great performance and creation of a very memorable character. The same can be said for the rest of the cast - all generally not quite given the credit they deserve and yet they deliver time and time again.

Undoubtedly the whole project has picked up a few lessons from Bourne, good and bad, but that only serves to make a film that solidly stands on its own feet and delivers a breathtaking spectacle. No gloss, glamour or romance just full on intrigue, betrayal and combat. The story, twists and action are utterly relentless, barely stopping even when the film finishes.

Buy it or rent it. Just watch it. Salt 2 will definitely be on my `to watch' list. Can't wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Salt! 2 Sep 2010
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Salt is a bit daft, but is also a very enjoyable, very well made and well acted action thriller. Angelina Jolie is excellent and leads a very good cast, Chiwetal Ejiofer from Serenity and Inside Man and Liev Scrieber from X Men Origins: Wolverine and Defiance also both very good as they lead the hunt to capture Salt. Plenty of twists and turns and things are not entirely who or what they seem. This was originally meant to star Tom Cruise but he passed to do Knight And Day and someone somewhere had the bright idea of rewriting the character into a woman and cast Angelina Jolie instead. Hopefully this will become the start of a new movie franchise as the end strongly hints at a Salt 2. In fact, they might as well have put up a to be continued sign! This has the potential to be if not a female James Bond series, then at least a female Jason Bourne. Excellent!

By rob crawford TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The true test of an action film is if the viewer can stop thinking and just believe it while watching. This film definitely did that for me: it is fast, scary, and for the most part just realistic enough. A few scenes are over the top, but not many. Spy action films can also be very fun in that they keep you guessing as to what is really going on, with clues, sudden choices, and shocking revelations. This filkeeps you guessing more or less to the very end, changing the viewer's mind not once, but twice or even three times in what may be a record. Good guys become bad guys and vice versa, but multiple times! Even some (admittedly crude) politics come into it. Of course, there is also a question of style, that is, how cool the characters are, how sexy. Here again, Jolie proves herself a gifted, charismatic screen presence, one of the greatest woman character actors at the moment as well as a star. She is sleek, strong, and sinuous, exuding both sensuality and hard concentration. These elements work in this film eminently well.

However, at the deeper level, that of emotional identification with the character, the film is weaker. Sure, Salt has connections with her past and present that make themselves felt, but I did not empathize much with her mission and plight. To be sure, that isn't required in an action film, but it is in the very best of the genre. The supreme masterpiece that does this is the Bourne Trilogy, which reached a new level of realistic action with an emotional overlay. Bourne sets a new standard that the new James Bond series accomplishes with some success for an old character, but Salt doesn't quite reach it - yet.

Recommended. I hope it becomes a series, because its potential is high and with a better script, we can expect much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 19 Dec 2011
By Valerie J. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
SALT (2010) is a brilliant espionage movie that packs a punch right from the start and keeps on going like a runaway train right the way through. The plot is excellent but not so convoluted that you cannot keep up. Angelina Jolie, the star, seems to be good in action roles and it's reminiscent of her as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

The movie starts with Evelyn Salt (Jolie) being tortured in North Korea then released in exchange for a Korean political prisoner held by the Americans. The Americans would not have traded except that her husband, an arachnologist, has created a fuss in order to organise her release. Back in America, when a Russian defector walks into the CIA offices requesting asylum, he declares her a spy who is going to kill the Russian president who is due to attend the funeral of the Vice President in Washington. Salt protests that she is innocent but in fear for her safety makes a run for it and the chase is on. And what a chase! Then she discovers her husband has been abducted. She is not a happy agent.

This movie is directed by Phillip Noyce who has directed superb movies such as Dead Calm, Clear & Present Danger, Patriot Games, and The Bone Collector. Seems like this guy can't go wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Salt! 20 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
Bought this and watched it over Christmas and it was without doubt one of the best action/thrillers I saw over that period! Angelina Jolie again shows that she's a very gifted and versatile actress. In this action packed film she plays an undercover Russian agent who gets embroiled in an assasination attempt on the Russian Prime Ministers life.

Jolie does all her own stunts as usual and on this dvd there are three versions of the film. I watched the extended version and didnt get bored once, it's a great!
