Salt

Critics Consensus

Angelina Jolie gives it her all in the title role, and her seasoned performance is almost enough to save Salt from its predictable and ludicrous plot.

    I went into this film not expecting much, And ok it's not great but it's not bad either, Jolie does well and carries the film, The action was ok but nothing new or memorable, The plot was ok abit weird and if you don't keep up it could be a kill joy, It was full of some nice twists that kept the film going but as an action film it's nothing we haven't seen before.

    Pretty thrilling chases, but just a standard espionage flick with no real substance. Orlov killing Mike to test Salt's allegiance seemed like it could go somewhere, but Salt flinches just enough for the audience to notice but apparently not enough for Orlov to, which is unsatisfying for the love angle and too easy for the test.

    Hollywood retreads safe Jolie = secret agent territory with Salt, a solid almost bi-polar film that can't decide whether it wants to be a taut thriller or an all-out action assassin flick and whilst it steadily balances the two, sometimes the tone wavers. The performances are steady and constant, particularly from Liev Schreiber. Salt is recommended if you feel like indulging in sustaining car crashes and mind-games, a considerably well-made film, you'll have fun trying to work out just who Salt is.

    Black definitely suits her better than blonde. Yeah... Definitely. That's normally Kurt Wimmer's fap material, you know... That is why the film briefly stinks like <i>Ultraviolet</i>. 47/100
