Action thriller.

2010. 96 min.

With Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Director: Phillip Noyce.


Rating: 3/5

Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, a highly trained and impossible-to-kill CIA agent whose life falls apart when a Russian defector named Orlov accuses her of being a secret Soviet-era double agent and part of a conspiracy to assassinate the Russian president at a funeral ceremony in New York.

All hell breaks loose when Orlov escapes and Salt goes on the run to protect her husband. The chase is on when her boss (Schreiber) and a CIA internal affairs agent (Ejiofor) team up to hunt her down.

Jolie dominates this political spy thriller. There’s loads of action, especially from her deadly wig-sporting character who makes her own weapons and slays one of her victims with a vodka bottle.

Her role was originally written for a male – Tom Cruise did us all a favour by dropping out to do his box-office flop Knight and Day.

Fans of action movies such as The Bourne Identity and Jolie’s Wanted will love it.
