4.0 out of 5 stars Salty Goodness, 28 July 2011
This review is from: Salt [DVD] [2010] (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.
