Salt never interested me because I am not a fan of Angelina Jolie. Why you ask? Do I really need to answer that question? Why do you think? Yes, because I am a loyal Jennifer Aniston fan, that’s why! But when you get a chance to watch something for free and then write about it, why would you say No?
So the movie is a typical action/ spy thriller. The story revolves around Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent, who is accused of being a Russian spy. Is she innocent or is she an actual spy? This question forms the main crux of the story.
The story has interesting twists but nothing out of the ordinary. The ending was abrupt but could just be an indication of a sequel.
The film has good action sequences and Jolie does some impressive stunts. The editing by Stuart Baird and John Gilroy is also good – I like how they show flashbacks in between to help the viewers better understand the story.
Overall, the movie is entertaining but it is definitely not a “WOW” film like Inception and that is why Inception is still #1 at the box office.
