Wait, what? I thought Ebert hated movies in which women play men-like roles?!

Most of the reviews praise Jolie:
 
Jolie herself is in her full glory here. IndieWire
 
Jolie is very much in her element, submitting gamely to the mayhem and hitting crucial emotional notes with effective understatement. Variety
 
Action suits her like a split skirt - and this may be her best-fitting role to date. Total Film
 
And the actress finds enough emotional depth to keep Salt from being a mere action decathlon. The National
 
And Jolie is up for the challenge. She scales buildings barefoot, jumps from bridges onto moving vehicles, and blows up buildings in New York and D.C. Eat your heart out, Matt Damon. Salt is Jason Bourne without amnesia. Rolling Stone
 
A lot of the usual-suspect character actors are on hand (...), and they give Jolie able support, but this is really her show. At least she's always fascinating to watch, whether she's kicking ass or merely figuring out how to kicks ass. The Boston Phoenix
 
Sony Pictures should send Tom Cruise a helicopter as a token of thanks for deciding not to do Salt. It's hard to imagine this fading icon could have done half a good job as Angelina Jolie, who should emerge as Hollywood's top female star for her stunning performance (...). New York Post
 
I didn't know that Cruise was offered the lead in Salt and chose to do Knight and Day instead (!?!?). He must be regretting it. So far, Salt has received better reviews than Knight and Day, and though I don't think Salt's OW will top Inception this weekend, I guess it's very likely that Jolie's movie will do much better than Knight and Day did on OW ($20 mil).

Jolie has had better movies, and she has had worse movies.  This one, based on crix, leans a bit above so-so.  Better take your "Worst Movie of the Weak" message and stick a "?" to the end of it.

Ramona and Beezus is worse at 48%, but even that is in the realm of so-so.  It's safe to say we don't have a real turd on our hands this week.  It's a good thing, considering we already have enough candidates to stop Eclipse from "winning" Razzies, and we have yet to face the Expendables and Seltzerburg's Vampires Suck.
