Seeing this numerous times in the discount DVD/BluRAY bin of retailers, got around to finally watching it OnDemand .. it was not a bad flick and the plot (as any other action film) was acceptable, if not almost prophetic in the times that are now had. The Russian intelligence myth, or even theory about some Manchurian Candidate breeding program was an interesting twist and coupled with the action scenes came with some surprise .. Evelyn Salt should have been dead after the first chase.
In all the action in this film was acceptable and in some instances struck as art imitating life. However, much can be left for the plot and the ending which came with not too much of a surprise, given the twists and turns of the characters and the roles performed.
“Who is Salt?” .. just some crazy chick with skills ..
If anything was redeeming or even nostalgic of this movie was probably the relationship between Salt and her husband Mike .. the unwitting arachnologist who she had fallen in love with and married. Perhaps this would make for a great Valentine’s Day movie to watch with a significant other?
