I went yesterday and I saw ‘Salt’, the new movie of Angelina Jolie. Boy, was that a bad idea! It was so disappointing! It was definitely one of the worse movies I saw this year.
You have some spy, action movies like the Bourne series. You know they are farfetched and the hero is literally indestructible, but at least they are well directed and intriguing. You also have some action movies like ‘Wanted’ when at least Jolie looks sexy. ‘Salt’ was nothing like any of these. The story was awful; the acting was bad and the action scenes amazingly unoriginal and uninteresting. Jolie looked amazingly skeletal skinny with bad skin and awful hair. She was able to singlehandedly however take out most agents of CIA and KGB (or whatever the Russian agents were) that stupidly waited in line to be bitten by her.
I believe even ‘Piranha 3D’ might have been a better option than what we watched yesterday. At least there you know what to expect and laugh with it.
