Very much like Mission Impossible but Jolie instead of Cruise. I have to say I preferred this to Mission impossible. I'm not usually a fan of hers but she impressed me with this film. Easy to understand and quite graphic at times. Good fight scenes and she looks amazing. Great for both sexes to watch, me and my husband really enjoyed it :o)

  Its OK But Nothing Special.

| | See all Dirtfish's reviews (475)

Salt (2010) is an action thriller starring Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games) directs.

There are some pretty good action scenes in this movie and director Noyce proves that he is technically very good. Noyce moves the movie along with a quick pace and with a few surprising twists.

The main problem though is that I never quite bought Angelina Jolie as an action hero. Jolie is too frail looking to fully convince in the action stakes. And despite the surprises the script is actually quite silly.

Salt is an enjoyable enough movie but it does not have anything special to make it better then all the other movies in its genre.

Good to see AJ in a kick ass film which portrays a strong woman and like nothing else you'll see of late!
Well worth watching and great entertainment!

  SUPERB!! Edge of your seat action!!

| | See all Suverent's reviews (1)

This movie was thrilling from start to finish. We follow Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) a CIA agent. Suddenly she is being accused to be a undercover Russian agent. This turns into a cat and mouse game between Salt and the CIA. You will find yourself confused and wonder who Salt really is to the bitter end.

Great action sequences, great story, good acting! This is really a must see for everyone who loves a action/thriller!!

  'ANGELINA' S' ' BEST EFFORT IN YEARS

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

the role as 'salt' is truly one of the best films i have seen 'angelina jolie' play for some considerable time, 'action-films' like this is without question what the lady does best.
in this she plays a 'C.I.A' agent who is suspected of being a 'sleeping' russian operative by her piers.
somehow she has to avoid capture to prove where her loyalty's really are....she will have to pay a heavy price to do so.
the film does keep you guessing which side she's really on in this fast moving 'action-thriller' ------not to be missed.

  A superior spy thriller which looks great on blu-ray.

| | See all dragonlord's reviews (442)

Angelina Jolie is perfect as the CIA double agent spy and the plot is very clever with lots of twist to keep you guessing. Some of the stunts are amazing with Angelina Jolie's stunt double jumping from lorry to lorry for example. I've been looking forward to watching Salt for some time and it was even better then I expected it to be which was a nice surprise. As a actress Angelina Jolie as done many different types of roles and like her partner Brad Pitt she always performs well and is convincing. If you like your action films with brains and good acting then Salt will be right up your street.

  Salt.

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

Salt has a great basic set up - Angie plays CIA agent Evelyn Salt. When a Russian walk-in identifies her as a double agent planted to assassinate a key political figure Salt is forced to go on the run from her colleagues (Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor) to try and prove her innocence.

The first hour or so is great - a brisk, efficient set up, explosive action set-pieces and a real sense of mystery and tension about what is happening then........after a certain point, which I won't spoil too much but will identify as the moment a character arrives at a barge......the movie tilts into complete plot carnage territory as ludicrous twist piles upon even more ludicrous twist to a final conclusion obviously designed more to set up a franchise instead of finishing the first film properly.

The only thing keeping it remotely together is Angelina Jolie - absolutely committing to the character of Evelyn Salt and going where the story goes. With any other actress around today starring it would never ever float at all. But with her, for the time your watching it, it just about does.

On this Blu-ray edition, which has excellent picture quality there are three cuts of the film. The theatrical cut, a director's cut and an extended cut. None make the film substantially longer, and most of the director's cut is merely scene extensions and the inclusion of more flashbacks although it does have a slightly juicier twist alongside the existing ending. The extended cut however has much more substantial changes from the midpoint, including a completely and utterly different ending from both the theatrical and director's cuts. Generally though I think I actually prefer the theatrical cut out of the three. There are also several featurettes, commentary and the assorted usual extras.

A not bad package overall if you enjoyed the film. If you didn't then neither of the alternate cuts is likely to make much difference to your original verdict.

Angelina is certainly on top form in her best movie to date!! Great thriller with an interesting story from start to finish, lots of ass kicking action from Jolie, great supporting cast too! The story has a great little twist at the end too!! This is certainly one of the best films of 2010 I recommend you must watch it!! The bluray has a good picture and loads of cool features too!!
