A lake in southern France took locals and visitors by surprise when it suddenly turned blood red. But it wasn’t some mass Satanic ritual that gave the lake its eery color, but extraordinary high levels of salt.
Salt is one of those movies that I like to go into not knowing much about. The trailer shows lots of good action, but that doesn’t mean much these days. The “Who is Salt?” campaign I thought was sort of stupid, but I figured with Angelina Jolie and Liev Schreiber it had potential. And as it turns out, Salt is a pretty good summer action movie that’s well-paced, decently written (even though it was written by the guy that wrote Ultraviolet) and some great, unique action sequences that make it worth watching, even if you wait til it comes on DVD and VOD.
