Made In: 2010
Starring: Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber
Director Phillip Noyce teams with screenwriters Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium) and Brian Helgeland (Mystic River) to craft this thriller starring Angelina Jolie as dedicated CIA officer Evelyn Salt, who is accused by a defector of being a Russian spy. With each attempt Salt makes to prove her innocence, her mentor, Winter (Liev Schreiber), only grows more suspicious of her true motivations. The longer she eludes capture by ambitious CIA agent Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor), the higher the stakes get.
We have had a little bit of extra time to watch a couple of movies the past couple of week. I had really wanted to watch Salt and was happy when we rented it. I like it and so did my family. It was action packed and had a good story. It did finish like they were setting it up for the next movie. I guess that isn't a bad thing. I'm going to give this movie 4 and 1/2 stars.
