Pass the SALT…

Salt-with-Angelina-Jolie_290SALT is an enjoyable film, and though not on par with recent Bourne and Bond entries, it is a tight – if not plausible – thriller on par with the equally plot-holed but gripping TAKEN, along with some of the flavor of Harrison Ford’s FUGITIVE remake.

It’s also commendable for giving us a trailer which clips almost entirely from the first hour of the film, instead of telegraphing the reveal and even ending like many similar films.

The issue of “identity” is immediately resonant, with special meaning for the Christian, and the possibility that love may have transformed someone entirely is also curious; the film explores the tightrope between love and vengeance. Check out this spoiler free video review and feel free to add comments, but note if you’re going to speak about pivotal plot points.
