SALT
Players
Director: Phillip Noyce
Writer: Kurt Wimmer

Local Distributor: Columbia Tristar Films
Plot
As a highly accomplished/respected CIA officer, Evelyn Salt is a diamond in the rough. On the evening of her anniversary, she’s called in for a last minute emergency cross examination of a Russian prisoner, and a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Without any solid explanation, Salt immediately takes off and initiates the goose-chaseof the century to avoid disclosing the truth behind her identity.

Personal Comment
Still remember Tom Cruise at Mission Impossible? And now a Female action movie is great isn't it?
The Plot/The Flow
mainly about KGA- CIA (at the United States & Russia).
I am not the kind of history person, so I am not sure if the plot is really relevant to the past history.
The flow of the movies grip with suspense, emerged the audience with mystery and the eager to find out the answer. The twist & turn is kinda amazing, provided you don't read any plot and review before the movie.
SPOILER starts
A.Jolie(Salt) is like the U.S top criminal crime, one part where only 3 police car escorted her, and she run away. The last part in the helicopter, there is only 1 chain to lock her? And the key near her? Come on, be more practical.
SPOILER end

Effects
You can't find pretty much good effects in the movie. I even think that, it's kinda fake.
SPOILER starts
Especially the part where A.Jolie throw the bomb and destroy Orlov's office.
She doesn't get the impact at all.
SPOILER end.
How about the Chasing scene?
I kinda agree that is it well develop in terms of visualize, but it is unrealistic.
Imagine she survive for machine guns and car accidents.
For me it's okay, since it is an action movie, I just want to point out some points here.

The 3 main actor.
From the left:Liev Schreiber (as Ted Winter, Salt's friend and colleague) , Chiwetel Ejiofor (as Peabody, an ONCIX agent in pursuit of Salt) & Angelina Jolie (as Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer accused of being a KGB sleeper agent)
Personal Rating:
Plot: 8/10
Effects: 7/10
Suspense: 7/10
Fighting: 7/10
Overall: 7/10
