Salt: Deluxe Unrated Edition Blu-Ray Review

Salt: Deluxe Unrated Edition Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: Angelina Jolie stars in Columbia Pictures' Salt, a contemporary espionage thriller. Before becoming a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. She will prove loyal to these when a defector accuses her of being a Russian sleeper spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture, protect her husband, and stay one step ahead of her colleagues at the CIA.

Review: There was a lot of talk about SALT being the new action-film franchise.  Angelina Jolie is the new Jason Bourne, thats what we're fed.  Is this true?  I came into this film with a certain level of skepticism.  I love Jolie's past work and obviously I don't mind looking at her on the screen, but can this film live up to the enormous hype?  The reviews from moviegoers online were VERY mixed.

What is SALT?  Salt is action..hardcore and intense action.  The movie almost completely rests upon the bad-ass action sequences.  This film has been very, very underrated.  This unrated version includes extended and director's cuts versions of the film.  There are a lot of more violent scenes that were cut out of the theatrical release.  The action is realistic and therefore rather gritty.  Jolie pulls out a great performance and shows she still has her acting chops.  Overall, this is a great film for anyone into action thrillers.
