Salt is a crappy version of Bourne.

It’s like someone buried a script during McCarthyism, unearthed it with pieces of radioactive sludge still attached and filmed it straight. With Bourne-like action scenes.

The rest of the film is impeccable, but the plot and setting are so asinine they infect the whole package and ruin it (at least for me). It would be better if it was simply a string of set pieces. There’s also that truly baffling choice of having infinite volte-face, so you can’t track who is fighting who.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
