Well I saw SALT today at the buck fifty theater, and I would have too say it would be worth seeing at a matinee price. SALT is a matryoshka of plot twist. Whoever said, “all is fair in love and war”, probably never played the game with Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie). Salt, who solo kills more than her share of kings and kings-men, all too avenge her murdered husband.
SALT begins when a defect spy Vassily Orlov (Daniel Olbrychski) walks into a office and informs the C.I.A, that the Russian President is going to be in town for a funeral… His! The assassin? C.I.A double agent Evelyn Salt. After, she fails a lie detector test, she’s on the run from every three lettered acronym of government agencies you can think of. Salt, parkours her way through a city in ways that would leave Spiderman with broken legs. Agent Salt is a master of disguise. “Who is that Mexican guy?..Ohhhhhhh. It’s Salt!”
So what’s the whole Rooski rouse? Pre-programmed, brainwashed Russian kids get adopted into the U.S.A, go to school, get jobs, spy, gather Intel and report back to Orlov. All, in preparation for Day – X. The day In which, if all goes planned, the Russian infiltration pays off in nuclear I.D. theft. Where, they get the bomb and we drop one in the middle east hornets nest, forged, “From America” starting World War 3 to infinity and beyond.
SALT will have you saying, “izvi`nite” in public just to see who turns around. It’s hard to tell who’s who until someone you think is a good guy starts killing everybody. And if you you stare at Angelina Jolie for a while she really does look like her father. I’m just saying. One last bad joke…? Don’t through this SALT over your shoulder, because that would be baaaaad luck. It took me three and a half hours to write this. This whole thing.
