"After she's accused of being a Russian sleeper spy, rogue CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) goes on the run, using every tactic, accent and disguise she knows to elude her pursuers, clear her name and protect her husband. Her supervisor, Winter (Liev Schreiber), buys her story, while counterintelligence officer Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor) decidedly does not and will do anything to stop her in this fast-paced, intrigue-filled spy adventure."

I have to word this "review" properly. I will start off by saying I did enjoy the movie and really liked it. However, I was disappointed. The movie was originally written for Tom Cruise and he turned it down because he said it was too similar to his Mission Impossible character -- while watching the movie I felt like I was watching Mission Impossible. I thought I was gonna be really excited about this bad ass girl kicking ass, but I was that impressed or shocked. Its not the first time they've done a movie with a bad ass girl and I thought her role in 'Wanted' was way more bad-ass than this one.

I thought the biggest problem was actually the directing/camera angles. So many times I found myself thinking "that could have been a really amazing shot" she did some amazing kick or something but the camera angle didnt really capture it that well

its definitley not predictable, its shocking, its interesting, its intriguing...when you think your bored or that you have it figured out. you don't. I remember sitting there like "well yeah, this movie thinks its soo clever, I know exactly what happened and whats gonna happen.." and then you don't. haha. definitley worth seeing!


  1. Saw it last night and agree completely. I do love AJ as an action hero, though. In fact, I find myself liking pretty much everything she's done in the last couple of years. I just think she's way too skinny.

  2. oh yeah shes great as an action hero and she did awesome in it i think it was the directing and the cameramen haha -- i as well have liked almost every movie she has done lately (wanted, mr. and mrs smith, changeling) shes a great actress and i like her more and more

    she is really skinny, she makes me jeauluos especially when you know she had twins and another kid -- isnt she supposed to have baby weight? haha

    they had her in alot of baggy clothes in this movie too and i didnt understand why shes already sexy and bad ass fighting chick why not make it more sexy and i dont mean bikini trashy but they could put her in some fitted pants and button downs lol
