Movie Review by Keith Kelly

“Salt” is a Cold War action thriller that brings back our old enemies-the Russians. It’s got spies, sleeper agents, lots of chases-both on foot and involving vehicles, plenty of shoots-ups, double and triple crosses, and agent Salt played by Angelina Jolie, smack dab in the middle of all of them.

It’s a mixture of the Bourne, Bond and the Tom Clancy “Jack Ryan” films, but doesn’t add any real unique stamp on the material, other than having a woman in the lead. It steals from the best, but doesn’t add anything fresh to the genre. Salt is one tough-ass babe, but I couldn’t connect with her or any of the other characters, including Liev Schrieber.

Because of the meager script, all of the actors reveal very little about their inner feelings-- if they expose them, they would expose themselves and the plot twists-so the cast’s acting range is very limited, which left me cold. Yes, there are a few surprises, but I saw them all coming a mile away.

The action runs the spectrum from somewhat believable to totally mind-boggling--but not necessarily in a good way. It’s spectacle without much depth or heart-which to me says-“wait for the DVD”.

I give “Salt”, directed by Phillip Noyce, a grade of C+. I’m Keith Kelly.
