Trailers/Ads Versus a Movie - SaltI watched all the TV ads for 'Salt' and thought 'Thanks, but no thanks'. Celebrity Star, and the only advertised reason to watch. No cast members mentioned but Angelina Jolie - so I thought, to heck with that (though I might have asked whether I liked her earlier films). The ads did not mention Liev Schreiber nor Chiwetel Ejiofor, actors I love seeing. So I decided no way I watch this.
And man is it good! Take a Bourne film and replace Matt Damon with Angelina Jolie and that is it roughly. But the secondary casting here is SO rich. What a nice piece of moviemaking!
Angelina Jolie is a celebrity. But she is one great actress (explaining the earlier point). I think this movie deserved a lot more respect.
