The storyline for this movie was very interesting. Soviets had gotten their hands on American children when they were very young and trained them to be on their side to help overthrow governments when they were older. Somehow they got back to their parents or others to raise them (outside of the USSR), but they had this brainwashing instilled in them.

At the beginning of the movie, Angelina Jolie's character, Evelyn Salt (a CIA agent) is accused by a Russian of being one such Russian spy. She realizes her husband is in danger and runs from authorities to make sure he's ok.

The trailers for this movie made it look better than it was. But, it did keep me guessing. I had no idea if Salt was a good guy or a bad guy. Unfortunately, Jolie's fight scenes weren't very believable (and there were quite a few of them, so that was distracting). And, the movie is left wide open at the end.

They have to leave movies wide open so they can make more money with the sequel.
