Review - Salt

I love espionage movie...


Of course i had already put this movie in the list of movies i want to watch for this year...and surprisingly...it was better than what i imagined...angelina jolie really fits in the character...a character which was originally written for tom cruise...but when tom cruise pulled out from the movie saying that it has resemblance to his previous characters in MI...the producers shifted the character to be a female lead instead of a male lead...and casting angelina jolie was perfect...

The movie kick-off with a scene of salt (angelina jolie) being tortured in a north korean prison...then was release with an exchange with a korean guy...then move on to two years later...one fine day...on her anniversary (owh yeah she was married to the guy who freed him which was actually her assignment prior to being captured in the korean prison)...a russian defector walked in to the C*IA office (veiled as rink petroleum) with an important information about a russian spy that was ordered to kill the russian president during the funeral of the U*S vice president...the guy was telling about this so-called school of spies in russia where they had train young children since they were infants to become a russian spy...and live in the U*S as a citizen of U*S...lots and lots of children...it was portrayed that the first successful mission was the assasination of JFK (konon la)...that the guy who shoot the president was actually russian spy trained for that particular mission...hurmmm...just about when salt had enough of it...the guy revealed the name of the so-called russian spy....salt...evelyn salt...and let the chase begins...

I could write more...but it would take away all the surprise factor of the movie...coz this movie surely have lots and lots of surprises...everyone is not as they appear to be...it was full-packed action...angelina jolie do have that russian menace look...which suits the role perfectly....in the end...everything goes on...but the end of the movie means there will be another installment of the movie...as this movie was written as a female spy franchise...cool...can't wait to watch another...hehehe...another good movie to watch...and angelina jolie is dem hot weih...
