      I was really anticipating this film ever since I first saw its trailer. It opened today and I hurriedly watched the last full show. The movie just got a passing mark in It says ” the plot was predictable and ludicrous”.

      I dissent.

      Evelyn Salt ( Angelina Jolie ) is a CIA agent in the film. When she interviewed Russian defector Orlov ( Olbrychski ), the latter accused her of being a Russian spy. The brain scan of Orlov revealed that he was telling the truth. Salt, quivered by its accusation, absconded and disguises herself as a brunette. The

      CIA agents chased her but she pursued on her plan to kill the Russian President. The movie delivers three important points, the assassination of the Russian, Salt betraying Orlov and the surprise that Ted Winter ( Liev Schreiber ) was part of Orlov’s plot all along. The detonating of missiles to Muslim cities of Meccah and Tehran was a breathtaking part.

      The movie is a high-packed action flick. It was intelligent, super-charged, and delivers on-the-edge-of-your-seat entertainment. The plot has intelligent twists and discovery which I don’t consider it laughable at all. It was not a giveaway nor detectable at some ...

      • point which I don’t see why they will call it predictable. Perhaps the only thing predictable was that Jolie’s character was still the protagonist in the end despite the terroristic sabotage she caused the US government.

        Another thing, the movie is rich with cinematic affluence. Having a budget of more than one hundred million dollars, the backdrop of the movie takes from upscale avenues in New York City, White House and the CIA headquarters in Washington D.C. I also appreciate the richness in terms of action sequence which was ambitious yet rightfully delivered. All the leaps, jumps and explosive scenarios

        were not unsurprising. It was seeing a real life chase of criminals, a terrorism-inspired assassination style and modern depiction of army intelligence.

        The movie is tailored to fit perfectly Angelina Jolie in the film. This was previously written for Tom Cruise though the screenplay was revamped to suit to Jolie’s character, the story line depicts perfectly what it wanted in the actress. Nobody in Hollywood can come close to the feminine agility, strength and ruggedness but Angelina Jolie. The character is a strong-willed woman, incredible and yet fierce. She all has this qualities and she brought the character with sheer originality.
