An­gelina Jolie (pic­tured) once again comes out with guns blaz­ing in this fast-paced es­pi­onage thriller from Aus­tralian di­rec­tor Phillip Noyce (Rab­bit-Proof Fence). Jolie plays Eve­lyn Salt, a highly re­spected CIA agent who i abruptly accused of be­ing a sleeper op­er­a­tive by Rus­sian traitor Orlov (Daniel Ol­brych­ski). The femme fa­tale is forced to go on the ru n in a bid to clear her name. Us­ing all of her skills, she em­barks on one chase scene af­ter another, leap­ing from all man­ner of things and evad­ing her ever-present pur­suers. This flick brings re­lent­less ac­tion and nail-bit­ing sus­pense to a genre that can be found want­ing. Jolie pulls off her fa­mil­iar role with aplomb.
