A Film Review: Salt

I feel I should tell you from the outset that this originally started as a much longer review and I just found myself getting bored. So I started again.

What you need to know is:

Mrs Pitt is a believable hero in the film, strong and beautiful doing things no human should be able to do and all in the name of her country. If you loved Peirce Brosnan’s Bond you will be on board here.

Although there are twists and turns a plenty, you will probably work out the key points in the first twenty minutes or so.

This is a strong start to a franchise.

It is possibly the most xenophobic film I have seen and ends with Angelina Jolie declaring that she will destroy all Russians, because you know, Russians are evil.

It is only about an ninety minutes long, making it the perfect Orange Wednesday length.

Rating: ★★★★☆
