Movie Synopsis: When CIA agent Evelyn Salt is accused of being a Russian double-agent, and at the same time when her husband mysteriously disappears from her home, she finds herself on the run from American and Russian forces, as she hurries to protect her husband and uncover what is going on around her.

Movie Review: This action-adventure-thriller starring Angelina Jolie in the role of Agent Salt is definitely an action-packed movie, with a lot of great action sequences, excitement and adrenaline throughout, and a lot of interesting twists and turns, some of which are genuinely surprising for the audience.  At the same time, some of the action sequences did become somewhat predictable and unbelievable, with the usual questions of how many times someone can jump from vehicle to vehicle without getting injured.  Furthermore, the overall plot and premise was somewhat farfetched, which detracted slightly from the movie.  Slight references to the past helped to frame and shape some of what we new about the characters, however overall there was limited character development in the film.  But in terms of a general fast-paced movie full of action scenes, definitely this was an enjoyable movie on that basis.

Overall Review: 3 stars out of 5
