What I Thought Going In: Well, they've been advertising this for centuries, hope it's good.
"Salt" stars Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor and is directed by Phillip Noyce.
"Salt" is an action-packed summer flick that offers little more than a lot of gunfire and car crashes. The story is very good, but for some reason, every single "twist" they threw in, you kinda saw coming. So, that's the equivalent of us robbing "Salt" of the HR it might have had.
Props To: My boy, Liev Schreiber, one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. Thankfully he's getting more props now, after being one of the lone bright spots in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" he also starred in "Defiance" and "Repo Men", I think he's gotten the ball rolling. Nice work man!
My Burn: Oh boy, Angelina is getting older man...her sexy factor is no longer enough to carry a film over the top...either that or I'm gay...and I'm pretty sure I'm not gay.
Bottom Line: "Salt" had a ton of action and a still-sexy-but-not-as-good-as-she-used-to-be lead, it will satisfy your summer action movie craving...but just barely.
