Evelyn Salt: More than Meets the Eye

Angelina Jolie delivers another explosive performance as CIA Operative, Evelyn Salt in the Columbia Pictures release, Salt. Accused of betraying her country, she is called out by a Russian defector as an undercover Russian agent infiltrating one of America’s most valued agencies. Is she a sleeper agent or a falsely accused hero? These are the questions to be answered throughout the adrenaline-driven flick. From the opening scene all the way to the end, the film is so intense and captivating that I found myself holding my breath.

I truly enjoyed the movie mainly because I love action thrillers like these. I loved the twists and turns in the story and as always, Angelina wowed me with her action prowess. Her high powered stunts reminded my of her role in Mr and Mrs Smith, although without the comic relief that film had.  Her role in Salt also reminded my of Sydney Bristow in Alias and I loved that series a lot!!!

Salt is one of the films I’ve been waiting for, as I said in my previous post about the movie, and I’m so glad I finally got to watch it. The movie is relatively short, running only for about 100 minutes (according to Wikipedia!) but it’s so action-packed and intense, extending it may not have been to the films best interest.

Do watch out for Salt’s secret weapon (harhar!)…and more so, watch out for her escape scenes right after that!!!

Salt also stars Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Daniel Olbrychski, and Andre Braugher and is directed by Phillip Noyce. Salt opens on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 in Philippine theaters.

Special thanks to Columbia Pictures for the invitation to the advanced screening of Salt this evening at SM Megamall’s Cinema 2 🙂
