Salt [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Salt [2010]

Well finally i checked out this summer blockbuster with Mrs. Angelina Jolie as hot agent Salt. Keep it Salty, and all the other possible commercial crap that can be done with a movie title like that. First of all I think that Angie is too skinny for this type of action movie, I remember seeing her run from the agents and it seemed like she is falling apart during that process (although she supposedly buffed up for this movie). The production values are top notch as in any other movie of this genre, and the jumping, running, fighting scenes are choreographed pretty decent. Also one more thing, whats up with the wall running. In every other scene she is running up the wall to build up strength for her punch. It looks cool when Jackie does it, not you. Not to mention the fact that she cannot get tired, no matter how long or strenuous the fight or run is. At least give her a cocaine or methamphetamine addiction or something, just to make things a little bit more believable 🙂

So you know the story, Salt is a CIA agent accused of treachery, so she must find a way out of that mess. There are a few twists that are not so unexpected, but still amusing in a sense that you can predict them and later be satisfied with your judgment. So, if you want to have a bit fun this movie is good, but if you are looking for something more complex and involving you will not find it here. Enjoy…
