Salt – Have You Seen it Yet?!

Angelina Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, a Russian spy… or is she?

Recently, I was upgraded on a flight and decided to watch a movie (it being free in first class and all!).  I’m not normally drawn to action movies, but I remembered thinking the previews for Salt looked pretty good.  And indeed, it was!

Angelina Jolie stars in ‘Salt,’ a contemporary espionage thriller about a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy and becomes a federal fugitive.

Angelina did a great job in the title role. She played the part well and was able to present a host of emotions — pain, sadness, shock, appreciation — and transition between them in an instant. Angelina really makes you wonder who Salt really is, and what her motives truly are.

I recommend that you rent this one if you haven’t already seen it.  I enjoyed it so much, I even watched most of it again on my return flight two days later, and rented it for my fiance to see at home!  (One note, the DVD includes a Director’s Cut and an unrated version, in addition to the theatrical release.  I would recommend watching the theatrical release first; I liked that one best.)

Salt is now available on Netflix.
