Well I have to admit first, my only reason for watching this movie was Angelina Jolie. She is only actress who can sell an action movie to audience convincingly. Her commitment for this role is commendable. I really admire her for her commitment and acting ability. She is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood and that is not just because she is hot and beautiful. Let’s talk about movie now.
In this movie Angelina Jolie played CIA operative Evelyn Salt. She finds herself in trouble when one Russian spy labels her Russian Spy working against the US government during interrogation. Now is this accusation true or not, that’s what we find out through some crazy action. What’s interesting to watch is that, historical cold war situation between US and Russia is used at the backdrop for motives.
Movie starts off with slow pace but gains momentum with every scene. Angelina Jolie carries all her action scenes extremely well and with ease. Twist in the story was good but I didn’t like the climax much. It is so obviously hinted that there will be sequel. Well I personally won’t mind a sequel. Any Angelina Jolie movie is must watch for movie. But other than that if I have to rate this movie I will give it 7 out of 10.
