Product Description

Evelyn Salt, a trusted and loyal CIA operative, goes on the run when a Russian defector convinces her superiors that she’s a double agent sent to assassinate the President of United States. As the intense manhunt heats up, Salt uses all her skills as a covert operative to elude capture and uncovers a secret so powerful it could change the course of world history. Angelina Jolie stars in this action-packed thriller that will keep you guessing until the end.

Amazon.com

Angelina Jolie confirms her status as action-heroine supreme in the sinewy thriller Salt. Evelyn Salt (Jolie) is a respected high-ranking CIA agent… until a defecting Russian operative declares that she's a Russian mole in deep cover, launching her on the most delicious chase sequence since the Bourne movies. When the film's over you'll realize the motivations for much of what happened didn't make much sense, but while the movie's going on the pell-mell pace will brush such concerns from your mind. Director Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Dead Calm) has a gift for staging action sequences you can actually follow moment to moment, which is infinitely more engaging than frenzied editing that blurs everything into cattle-prod jolts--the movie's first third is top-notch orchestration. Jolie's star magnetism provides the cool, calm axis around which everything else revolves; the sturdy supporting performances of Liev Schreiber (The Manchurian Candidate) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Inside Man, Dirty Pretty Things) give enough heft to the plot to keep you from questioning anything. Salt is an old-fashioned entertainment, a skillfully made mechanism with enough grace notes to let it breathe and catch you by surprise. --Bret Fetzer

There are 3 versions of Salt available for viewing, the Theatrical, Extended, and Director's Cuts. They run 1:39:56, 1:40:58, and 1:43:59 respectively (credit to Interzone_Records for the correction). Here are the major differences as compared to the base Theatrical Cut, e.g. Theatrical vs. Extended, and Extended vs. Director's Cut. Note, SPOILERS follow below, so read at your own risk. There are a few major, significant differences between the versions.

The Director's Cut makes the most sense plot-wise, and includes some better character development, in my opinion.

THEATRICAL vs. DIRECTOR's CUT
*****************************************************
1) Evelyn Salt's opening interrogation scene in North Korea is longer and more brutal. The soldiers force a tube down her throat and subject her to more intense questioning, followed by several kicks to the abdomen.

2) Extended scene of Orlov training little kids who will be future sleeper agents. As the kids finish a race through the woods, Orlov asks which kid was first, and which was last, whipping the last kid with a riding crop.

3) Abduction of Michael (Salt's husband) by Orlov's thugs is shown.

4) Additional scene where Michael tells Salt about a new species of spider that he has discovered.

5) Childhood scene between Salt and Schnaider at Orlov's training camp.

6) Salt's husband is NOT shot in the Director's Cut; rather, he is slowly drowned and Salt is forced to watch. Michael's death is much more harrowing in the Director's Cut.

7) Salt kills Orlov with a broken bottle, and the stabbing is shown in more detail, rather than off-screen.

8) Salt's rampage through Orlov's freighter HQ is more graphic.

This is a really well done action flick worth viewing. Here's what's good with it:

1. It's full of non-stop action that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The stunts and fight scenes are really exciting.

2. The story has twisty turns and it keeps you thinking. There's no boredom here, and I felt the plot was close enough to being plausible to keep you interested. Even if the exact program of placing trained children into America isn't complete realism, we all know that there are spies living as Americans in this country. Just watch the news. It's a current and relevant theme.

3. The acting is excellent, and the characters, especially Angelina Jolie, show depth. You can't help caring about what happens to Salt.

While I agree with another reviewer who said that Salt's husband isn't shown a lot, I felt he was shown enough to reveal that Salt really loved him. That was what the audience needed to know in order to understand her motives, and to care about whether he lived or died.

I'd definitely recommend seeing this movie, and it's one I'd own as well.

Now this is what I'm talking about. Phillip Noyce's "Salt" is my type of summer movie. First and foremost "Salt" is an action film and it succeeds with flying colors in that regard. But what I really admired about this picture is that it took place in reality. The action was grounded in physics and therefore made it messy, mean and hard hitting. Then we have bon-a-fied movie superstar Angelina Jolie in her best action performance. Where "Salt" also succeeds stupendously is with Evelyn Salt's characterization, which is complex, dualistic, fascinating and ultimately enigmatic. Jolie thrives in this role which plays to literally every one of her strengths as an actress. You root for her and sympathize with her even though it's never clear what side Evelyn truly falls into. It's in this intense dynamic between plot, character and action that leaves "Salt" head and shoulders over films like "Eclipse", "Clash of the Titans", "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" and yes, even "Inception". But also on a side note it's just plain refreshing to see a film that has Russians trying to take down America, crisp and clean action cinematography and a true movie star like Jolie leading things along. This is classic summer filmmaking at it's finest.

Ok, this is not a product review. I merely want to help you decide which version to buy.

For the first time ever, I personally prefer a theatrical edition over an unrated director's cut, and I'll tell you why. The version shown in theaters was more fun, and made a lot more sense. Unlike typical director's cuts, this one doesn't just add cut footage and tweek some of the editing, it actually uses alternate takes, with alternate events and outcomes, that fundamentally change the story. Simply put, without giving spoilers, the director's cut is far more bleak, and makes the idea of a sequel fairly pointless (or at least insurmountable). In fact, the alternate takes, if one looks back on them, invalidate the entire reason for the story in the first place, making it all a redundant waste of time. Again, trying to avoid spoilers here, so let me just make up a silly analogy that will convey the idea. Imagine a convoluted story about trying to, say, poison a city's water supply, and in the director's cut version you discover afterwards that the bad guys just happened to have someone planted who, by happenstance, already works at the water plant and could have poisoned the water at any time over a lunch break. Seriously, it's that sort of stupid.

I absolutely loved Salt when I saw it. It's a fantastic, exuberant movie that could easily be the start of a really enjoyable franchise. The director's cut, however, I did not enjoy. It did not add anything of substance beyond a few fairly insignificant scenes that were extended by a minute or two, and the alternate takes were far less satisfying than the originals, and only made the movie depressing and, honestly, rather stupid (and I'm far more partial to clever, intelligent stories that make sense).
