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.

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!

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.

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!

Format: DVD
I've charted Angelina Jolie's career with increasing disinterest as she seemingly becomes more Celeb than Actress. However, despite her life being a series of tabloid tittle tattle when it comes to the big screen there is still something magnetic about her. `Salt', like `Wanted' before it, is Jolie attacking the genre film. This is the action packed spy thriller you never knew you wanted to her to be in. Jolie plays Veronica Salt a US Secret Service Agent who is accused early on of being an undercover Russian spy. The CIA lock people up first and ask questions later, so Salt goes on the run to try and clear her name. What is the real truth?

In a period of cinema were most films are by the numbers it is great to see something like `Salt' that comes out of left field and leaves you a little confused, but greatly impressed. The plot is not as obvious as it first seems and the film twists and turns towards its conclusion. Jolie may be increasingly skinny as she gets older, but she is still a realistic action presence (I don't know how she does it). The character of Salt is not particularly believable, but in the context of the film this is just perfect. Director Philip Noyce is able to keep the pace of the film running continually so that you never have much time to question exactly what is going on.

`Salt' is an action thriller that was designed for you to disengage your brain and have a good time. It does exactly this and any people trying to closely follow he plot will probably struggle. Therefore, don't bother and instead enjoy watching an action women shooting and beating up various bad guys.
