I have to admit that in real life, I am not a huge fan of one Ms. Angelina Jolie but I have to give props where props are due: When it comes to action movies Angelina Jolie is the woman! I mean seriously, she does it all and she does it well.
So for this review I will have to look past the fact that she is a home-wrecker long enough to focus on her craft.
That is pretty much the nuts and bolts of the film. While many aspects of the plot were intriguing as it related to action, international espionage and high tech weaponry, there was really nothing exceptionally original about the plot.
Liev Schreiber was pretty on point in his role as Agent Tim Winter, Salt's only ally, and Chitwetel Ejiofor was plausible as Agent Peabody, the super-alpha agent who is hell-bent on getting his man (or woman) by any means necessary.
At the end of the day I give Salt a solid B+.
