Summary:

Angelina Jolie stars as a top female super-spy accused of being a traitor in this fast-paced action thriller.

Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) is a CIA agent brought in to handle a routine interrogation of a Russian defector. Although the Agency are treating his claims with sceptical caution, he insists that a Russian spy is heading to New York to assassinate the US President. And then Salt is stopped in her tracks when he reveals the assassin's name is... Evelyn Salt. Now Salt must go on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. But even when she does get caught, breaking free from a fast-moving police car holds little challenge for an agent who is as deadly as any lethal weapon. But as Salt desperately fights to prove her innocence, her entire life story and her identity itself are called into question.

Review:

Salt brings good old memories from the Jason Bourne franchise. The Film revolves around Angelina Jolie(Salt) who is a CIA agent who may or may not be a Russian spy. It basically has everything one would want in a summer action flick from Car chases,explosions,a hot chick and an audience engaging 100mins of motion cinema. Before going into the critics reviews we must understand that it was made by Phillip Noyce as a SUMMER ACTION-FLICK and it perfectly achieves what its looking for.It engages the audiences for the entire 100mins with us playing the guessing game every minute.Even though it can be a little predictable,it is worth a watch for the light pleasure in viewing especially after having watched the brain-cracking Inception. With that said, i would wrap it up by saying that Jolie delivers a fine performance, with good special effects and fine direction by Phillip Noyce.It is very rare and pleasing to see the lead role of such an action film taken up by a woman in Hollywood, and it definitely works. Perfect 100mins killer!
