Salt Movie Review

“SALT”: A collection of hidden wills

The movie has a thrilling opening which almost maintains its very state by the end. Although the movie is of action type, the director is expected to be loyal to at least Newton laws in classic physics. In some scenes of the movie, unnecessary exaggerated actions have been designed for Salt (Jolie). For instance, when she is on the run in the express-ways, she jumps off the vehicles so unbelievably. It seems that Angelina Jolie is forgotten in the mind of director for minutes and substituted by Pierce Brosnan. Even at the end, the way she jumps down to follow the elevator of President may remind the viewer Master Li Mu Bai in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”. Jolie can discuss this issue with Brad Pitt as “Tom Bishop” in the movie “Spy Game” where he played a more believable and realistic role as a CIA agent.

The movie “SALT” exhibits a brilliant idea which is mentioning to this fact that nobody knows nobodies’ intent in a system. While Evelyn Salt is after her own goals, Ted Winter follows another mission and both serve under the name of CIA. The personality of Salt with this degree of violence and feeling of revenge is nicely contrasted by a romantic relationship with her husband. However, the idea of saving the world from nuclear threat by a single-handed woman who has specialty in lethal weapons is not acceptable. When US president and his guards are in a safe shelter one may vividly remember “Air Force One”: Russian terrorism and US president in one chamber. This time, the story is tens of feet under the ground whereas in previous story US president and terrorists were thousands of feet above the ground. National security advisor introduces himself and gets killed right away in both movies in an unbelievable similar way. In contrast to “Air Force One”, there is no Harrison Ford in “SALT” to play a heroic role as the US president and kill all terrorists. Besides, symbols electrifying the American spirit are not used in this movie.


While the open-ended movies have their own fans, these types of works should obey reasonable rules. The viewers should not be left on the seats of cinema after the play with contradictory options about the rest of the story. It is unclear why Salt is abetted to run away by Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor). What unfinished mission she was released to accomplish?! She had taken revenge from the persons who had terminated her life. In the meantime, she has killed many US citizens (security forces) and there is no reason that a CIA agent lets her go.

The Best Casino Movie Of All Time

If you are fond of thrillers, then you would have loved ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Departed’. In the late 1970s, Italian film and casino magnate Mario Puzo are tapping by his employers to head up the newly established Tangiers Initially, he is a huge success with the job, but as the decades wear on, difficulties with his underlings, his boss’ secret admirer (Sidney Poitier), ambitious femme fatale (Celine Dion), corrupt politicians and the volatile “Godfather” (Kevin Dunn) put Sam in constant danger. Scorsese directed this adaptation of Nicholas PileGGi’s novel. Starring in this film would also be Robert De Niro, who would go on to star in such movies as ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Casino’, ‘Me, Myself, and I’, and ‘Catch Me If You Can’.

In the late nineteen seventies, ‘The Godfather’ made its way to America and was later made into a movie of the same name. The film was successful in telling the story of how the Italian immigrants settled in New York and set up their own casinos in Las Vegas. Both the United States and the United Kingdom feature ‘The Godfather’ as major film festivals today. Notable supporting actors for this film would also include Edward Paget, Marilu Henner, Richard Castellano, Frank Capra, Jack Nicholson, Joanna Scanlan, George C. Scott, Ben Gazzarra, John Turturro, and Joe Mantegna.

Though it never won any major Oscars or won any Academy Awards, ‘The Godfather’ did become one of the most beloved films of all time, and marked the beginning of the modern era of high-stakes movies and television shows. Two decades later, ‘The Sopranos’ would feature similar high-stakes situations, but this time with much greater stakes, and the stakes were much higher. Both shows became hugely popular and are still popular today. One thing that the two productions have in common is the use of some of the most memorable actors and actresses of all time. No list of high-stakes casino movie favorites would be complete without the names of Mario Puzo, Frank Sinatra, James Cagney, and John Turturro.
