Last night I went to see the movie Salt. I don’t know why but for whatever reason there hasn’t been any great movies this summer. Sure there were a few good ones but no great ones. Salt was no different.
The plot for Salt was so predictable that those who actually paid attention to the trailers could actually have guessed what would happen at the end. I was hoping that since it was an angelina jolie movie the bar would be much higher. I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
The plot summary is basically that there is a russian organisation that recruits and trains young kids to be assassins. These people are responsible for assassinations like the JFK assassination. They plant sleepers amongst their targets and then they use them to strike from within. They kidnap americans and then replace them with russians. I did like this concept and was hoping that there would be much more to offer.
Salt is one of these kids but she defects from the organisation because she fals in love with someone. I’m not going to give up the main twist but I will say that you can figure out the movie within 30 mins of the movie. The main boss fight lasts 3 secs. The traitor dies easily without a chase or anything. It was just a dull movie.
If you guys see it tell me what you thought of it.
