VERDICT – 4/5
1) Highly-trained Soviet double agents are deployed all over the United States substituted as real American children. Evelyn Salt is one such double agent working for the CIA, however, her loyalty to CIA/Russia is shattered when she actually fell in love with his boyfriend who moved heaven and earth to get her released from North Korea.
2) A solid action-packed spy-thriller with all elements of a great franchise like The Bourne Series.
3) Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt is absolutely stunning. A thoroughly entertaining movie from the first minute to the last.
4) Kurt Wimmer’s story is the real winner here. The core of the movie is the secret Soviet program that plants brainwashed children into American families. The final TV news report confirms that the new US president visiting Russia is one such child.
Peabody: How many more like you are there?
Evelyn Salt: Like me? None.
