Men get away with it.

Action all the way with this, but rather shallow and with unbelievable shoot-outs and car chases plus Angelina Jolie as the CIA heroine who is suspected of being a double agent. She is the action figure, almost cartoon-esque, and her stunt double really earned her money in this film.
It really is ridiculous plot wise and deserving of zero stars for the acting, especially from Liev Schreiber who plays his character as if he has a barge pole running through him which is most unusual as he uplifts most productions that he is in.
If this had a male central figure, such as Cruise or Arnie or any other, I would probably describe the film as another action fest that is entertaining and give it the average 3 stars or more. Why cant a woman be the same action heroine in a film full of amazing but absurd action that is mildly entertaining but will never win any Oscars for the acting ?

So I give it 5 stars, as this copy has 3 versions of the film : theatrical, director's and extended cuts. There are further bonus features including a radio interview with director Phillip Noyce. English subtitles with the film.

Salt - DVD
Verified purchase
I’d not seen this for a while but it’s a fun (if increasingly preposterous) spy-jinks thriller with Angelina Jolie giving it her all.

She plays Evelyn Salt, an intelligence officer accused of being a double agent poised to make a high level assassination attempt within the next few days. Protesting her innocence but with colleagues having to take the accusation seriously, she ends up on the run.

Director Phillip Noyce knows the territory well having directed a couple of the Jack Ryan films of the 1990’s, and he can handle the action well. The main problem is a script that after the halfway mark throws twist after twist into the story until it becomes a bit of a mess by the finale. But, Jolie never wavers or lets any of that get in the way of making you believe it’s all possible, and as she carries the film virtually solo, all credit to her for that!

At its current cheap price, it’s a decent popcorn flick.

Jolie re-invents and proves herself again and again!!
Verified purchase
Just when you think Angelina Jolie can't do any better work - she does! She looks to ride this roller coaster story with ease, but that's surely the mark of a good actor! I have watched this movie several times and will watch it again, as it is so good. Jolie looks gorgeous and kicks ass - what more could we want from a 'A' list actress.

DVD is perfect, film not to my taste
Verified purchase
First off, the DVD is perfect. No complaints about it as a product. However, the film itself is not to my taste. I had heard much good about it, the cast sounded fantastic, and I was genuinely looking forward to seeing it. However, right from the get go I found it repulsive. The graphic torture of a female right at the beginning did not appeal. I didn't need to see it to believe it. And when it was followed soon after by the close up of a huge tarantula crawling over the screen, the disc went straight back into the box. I don't enjoy seeing this kind of thing, I didn't even want to find out if there was a point to what seemed like cheap shock value to me. It sat on the shelf for a while, waiting to maybe get watched at a later date but has since been donated to the nearest charity shop. First time I ever did that with a DVD I paid good money for.

Action-Packed
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this film. The plot is rather convoluted, but it has plenty of action and is very entertaining. Angelina Jolie plays the lead role and the character is a kind of cross between Jason Bourne and James Bond, but without ripping either franchise off. I thought that it was a pity that there wasn't a sequel to this, but there you go. Five stars from me. Just switch your brain off, don't think too much about the plot and enjoy.

A film full of action
Verified purchase
Lots of action even though far fetched but exciting to watch .
It kept my interest . The ending was a disappointment though and would prefer it to have carried on until she had killed them all . It ended in a weird way

Cartoons would have been more believable!
Verified purchase
I actually like thrillers, with action, but this one was completely over the top! Have film makers really run out of good narratives, and the only way to seduce audiences, is to create more and more unbelievable stunts? It was so ridiculous it was more of a comedy than a thriller.

subtitles dont match
Verified purchase
Its very difficult as we know to get in touch with Amazon! I bought this film and for the past two evenings we have tried to watch with subtitles as my husband is hard of hearing. The subtitles do not match, being approximately 30 to 40 seconds behind the action. I would like my money back but its taking longer to figure out how to do this than it would be to watch the film. If you need subtitles, dont get this film from Amazon
