Angelina Jolie returns to action films, a la Wanted-style, in the unfortunately titled Salt. She plays a CIA agent who is named as a Russian spy and goes on the run from the people she works for to rescue her kidnapped husband. One can expect lots of logicless action and sexy shots of the leggy female star. The story attempts to be a psychological thriller (is she a spy? Or is she being set up?), but looks like it's more of just a slam-bang summer action flick. The film co-stars Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Serenity). And in case you get confused, just remember that Angelina Jolie probably wouldn't star in a movie about sodium.
