Movie #109 Salt

(2010, US, d. Phillip Noyce)

Ludicrous at every single moment of the film, it would seem as if this Angelina Jolie vehicle were doomed from the get-go. However, as fate would have it, I thought this movie was freaking awesome. It’s a nice relief to see movies that don’t rely on visual effects to conduct their action sequences. It’s obvious Angelina Jolie performed a lot of the stunts on her own here and they embellished the movie quite well. It borrowed a lot from the “Bourne” series but I thought they did that well, especially with the car chases. And the best part of the movie? It ends just when you want to see more. I’m not even kidding when I say I can’t wait for the sequel. Yes, the movie is stupid. Yes, there are at least 75 minor to major plot holes. Yes the bad guys do actually want to “destroy America”, kill the Russian president, assassinate the US President, and seize control of all American atomic bombs in one movie. But Angelina Jolie is still hot. And there’s nothing a bad guy can do to that.
