Suspend your natural disbelief and add some salt, even if you don’t normally, to your popcorn. Angelina Jolie plays Evelyn Salt in this CIA spy thriller. Sleeper cells and outrageous car chases with Jolie leaping from the roof of one speeding truck after another. It’s all quite good fun, actually – and better than it’s been given credit for. The speed with which the movie progresses is a trip. The speed?: Warp.
You know that Jolie can’t possibly…right? But the twists and turns throughout leave you catching up, so there’s no time for reflection. That’s a good thing here. Jolie is aggressively athletic, and watching her (or her stunt double) is a kick. Enjoy.
