As much as I couldn’t possibly care less to hear or read about Angelina Jolie’s personal life with Brad Pitt and their dozen or so offspring, I will admit this much: she is nice to look at. If you love movies that are basically 90-minute chase scenes and you also enjoy looking at Angelina Jolie, then this new movie that she stars in, which is called Salt, is your cinematic wet dream. Salt is a movie which is best seen without any beforehand knowledge of the very loose plot, because the more you know the less you will be surprised by a couple of key plot twists, only one of which I saw coming. All you need to know going in is that in Salt, Jolie plays a CIA operative who is accused of being a Russian Spy. Once that scene plays out, it’s all about watching Angelina Jolie jump from one speeding semi to another speeding semi, roundhouse kick dudes in the head, and basically slaughter every other character in the film with anything and everything from machine guns to handcuffs to her bare hands, all the while looking fucking fantastic, even when she is covered in blood. Acting! Salt also stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor (hot) as a couple of Salt’s CIA cohorts. I was entertained and, for a free movie screening, that is all that matters. The Worleygig gives Salt Four out of Five Stars.
Salt Opens nationwide on Friday July 23rd
