*Don't worry, reading this will NOT spoil the movie. Promise*
SALT starring Angelina Jolie as CIA agent Evelyn Salt accused/caught as being a Russian spy! dun, dun, dunnn. I REALLY enjoyed this movie. [For the record, I'm so not a fan of her husband, but whatever.] It was SO intense. Granted, a bit predictable (what movie isn't), but there were a few times for a several minutes or seconds I was completely dumbfounded about the plot twist I had just witnessed. And I was like whoa, whoa! Whaaaa? The opening scene grabs you and hooks you SO well. It's a dramatic scene with North Koreans interrogating (and we all know they have unorthodox ways of interrogation) a captured America. I spent a lot of that movie literally very tensed up because I was so into it. It was almost non-stop action but done so well that I was not getting tired of it. The fight scenes weren't never-ending, like those in Transformers 2 (I still liked that movie though, it was funny). The audince wasn't thinking "Seriously? They've been fighting for like, the whole movie." The car chases weren't ridiculously unrealistic. There are some epic moves. And the usefulness of a taser gun was definitely highlighted. It's not the "feel good" movie of the year, it's every US federal agency versus Russian operatives trying to destroy America. Casualties are inevitable. The ending is great(!) and fit extremely well. It's exciting and you'll be starring at the screen, mouth slight ajar thinking ohhh my gosh! Did you see that!? Angelina Jolie is pretty badass and super smart in this movie. I love her character, Evelyn Salt, she's a highly trained CIA agent, one of the best. And I am a fan of her blonde hair.
OKAY, I just watched the trailer and my desire to see it again has just increased immensely.
