Evelyn Salt kicks serious butt

100 minutes of pure escapism. Angelina Jolie is terrific as Evelyn Salt in this non stop action thriller. The pace is relentless as Salt is pursued by the CIA. Jolie is a trained killing machine, expert in hand combat, weaponary, escapism and evasion.
Angelina is totally believable as one super cool, ruthless and aggressive lady.
Great stunts and cinematography too. Interesting that Jolie does the stunts herself (EXTRAS). Loved it.

It is a bit like rubbing Salt in the wound, painful to watch!

What is this? It's trying to be an action political thriller along the lines of 'Enemy of the State', but is really just a yawn inspiring US verses good ole Russia yarn, with no teeth. This film clearly thinks that it has depth, and is trying to be politically complex, but I was just left thinking what is going on. Confusing but nit in a deep way, very shallow and insipid. The end is, well this is one of those films that does not have an end, so they can make a follow on, you know what I mean! I found this quite boring to be honest and a big disappointment.
