So, thanks to, myself and two other friends got a chance to watch Salt for free last night! No spoilers below unless specified :)

It stars Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt, a CIA officer, used to being in the field. So when a walk-in informant told the CIA that Evelyn Salt was a Russian spy and was intending to kill the Russian President, she was the subject of suspicion. So, who indeed was Evelyn Salt? This was the premise of the first hour or so of the movie. Was she as she says she is - an American CIA agent, or was she really a Russian spy as stated by the informant?

After that first hour of guessing, which made me feel like I'm watching an episode of Lost, because I kept changing my mind on my theory. Which was fine. Then the last hour started, and I got bored.

Sure, there was a twist at the end that I was totally not expecting.  [Expect a red herring moment!] But then again, it was not enough for me. This movie was too overhyped and did not live up my standards and what I thought this movie would  be.

As a friend of mine said, "this movie is like Bourne, with a girl on it." So, if you like movies with a lot of action and/or would just want to see Angelina Jolie, then by all means, see it. If you're choosing between Salt and a bunch of other movies, I'd say, go watch Inception instead. Inception is more worthy of your time than this flick.

    I watched Salt and was underwhelmed, too. I lost count at how many times she's a spy -- quadruple spy? Or something. Angelina would make a sorta cute guy, though. ^^

    Oh, and by the way, passing an award to your blog: :)
