SALT by Phillip Noyce


salt - embitterment level - disappointment level

When CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) interrogates a russian defector, he tells about a plan to destroy the USA with the help of sleeper agents trained from early childhood. And he names one of the sleeper agents – Evelyn Salt. Salt escapes her colleagues who want to arrest her and goes on a quest to find out who the sleeper agents are, to save the United States (and the world) – and who she herself is.

Initially a Tom Cruise-vehicle, the script was rewritten for Angelina Jolie. Probably a good decision, as Angelina Jolie is the best thing in Salt. The plot is by the numbers, with holes in it larger than the ego of two Hollywood superstars, and Salt is saved from looking like the latest Bourne-ripoff only by Jolie’s performance and the gravity-defying stunts.
