Salt (2010)

A CIA agent goes on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. [imdb]

Nominated for 1 Oscar:

Best Sound Mixing

Talk about getting surprised once in a while by an action flick... there's not a single break moment in Salt or a lazy scene, as the action never stops: one great scene after another. Of course, it's not always that believable, but it's a decent screenplay, with twists and turns all the way. Hardly what I expected from the trailer.
Angelina delivers an unexpectedly good, profound, touching performance and she's so damn cool in those chase scenes. While it's not really one of the year's best, Salt is still an underrated film, as it was one of the most enjoyable 2010 films I saw.
My rating for the film: 7.5/10. Yes, it will get more than The King's Speech on my list :))


  1. It's a pretty good action flick with all those surprising twists and turns. I never had issues with the unbelievable action scenes.

    Really liked it. Maybe I'll give the same grade as yours.

  2. Absolutely hated this movie. It was so unoriginal.

  3. Agree wholeheartedly with your comments. Fairly zips along as a quality action thriller, not much more though.
