Salt is a mix between the Bourne films and The Manchurian
Candidate with a female in the lead.
Personally, I prefer Angelina Jolie in dramatic
performances like Changeling, instead of these action woman roles, because she's grotesquely miscast!
The film fluctuates between predictable and ludicrous as
Evelyn Salt (Jolie) is suspected as being a Russian spy deep in the CIA's ranks and then embarks upon the kind of behaviour you could only expect in a Hollywood movie, leaving gaping
plotholes along with each and every explosion.
Even a couple of hours after watching this it leaves
lasting impression in the memory. Perhaps it's a sequel to Gone In 60 Seconds.
