I don't mind this movie, but I don't think it should sweep any awards or penalties either. Angelina Jolie is either hit or miss.

Well, neither movie was a run away hit. Jolie might win just because she's more mainstream.

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Really what a work done by Angelina, i really appreciate her work.

By any chance, are you a studio marketing guy trying to get in some last minute, word of mouth?

Cracked.com got it right. The title should have been "Jason Bourne ... If He Had a Vagina". The movies is totally forgetable, and the closure-less ending just makes you row your eyes. 2/5 for me.

It's a more than efficient and effective action film. One of the more spectacular ones in the past few years. Just my opinion. And who cares if it's a Jason Bourne movie....with a vagina? People said the same with Hanna, which was Jason Bourne....as a kid!

1. It comes across as the most dated action movie in the past few years, too. Russians as the bad guys ... in 2010 ... really? And the pointless plot twists galore. And did I mention the ending that was without closure?
 
But back to the "Jason Bourne with a vagina" quote, you may write Cracked.com off as a cynical humor site, but there is often truth in jest, and they are 100% correct here. What were the Bourne movies? Black Ops agent is betrayed by his government agency because they think he has gone rouge, amazing car chases and fighting sequences ensue. What was Salt? Govenment spy is bretayed by her agency because they think she is a double agent, amazing car chases and fighting sequences ensue. Read any book about screenwriting, they will tell you point blank that most blockbusters are sold to studios on the pitch of "high concept meets other high concept", ie. "Cowboys and Aliens" (the western meets science fiction), or "successful, establish franchise ... with a twist". I bet you all of my life savings that at one point of the pitching of, or production of "Salt", someone uttered the phrase "Think Jason Bourne ... if he were a woman". It's impossible to be in denial over such a transparent issue.
 
2. Well, that's what it was! In fact, that movie was probably sold on the pitch of "Jason Bourne ... if he were a teenage girl!", just as "Salt" was probably sold on the pitch of "Jason Bourne ... if he had a vagina!".
