DVD: Salt, For retail & rental (Sony)
Sunday 12 December 2010
This year's other Bourne imitation – which Tom Cruise dropped out of – stars Angelina Jolie as a CIA agent who goes on the run after she's accused of being a Russian spy.
It starts off in something like the real world, and the emaciated Jolie is convincingly anxious as she stays just a whisker ahead of her pursuers. But the tone remains determinedly po-faced even as the plot becomes more ludicrous than that of a Roger Moore Bond outing.
