The plot outline, Angelina Jolie (Evelyn Salt) works as a spy for the CIA. She's getting ready to go home for her anniversary with her husband when a Russian "defector" shows up. Her and her colleague Liev Schreiber (Ted) decide to see if he's real or not. He starts to tell about a bunch of Russian kids who were trained to replace American kids, to bring down America and the plan is now for a woman to kill the Russian President while he's in NY. He then reveals that Evelyn is the spy. She claims he's lying and is worried that her husband can't be reached and that they have gone after him. Homeland Security want to keep her locked up to check the story, but she's worried about her husband and using all her spy skills escapes only to find him kidnapped. She then goes looking for him, finding the "defector" who had managed to escape and who had kidnapped her husband.
This movie is totally far-fetched, she jumps from the overpass onto a semi-trailer, then onto a tanker trailer, then onto a smaller truck, is thrown to the ground, avoids some bullets and steals a motorcycle and escapes. But that's the fun. It's one explosion and completely unrealistic scenario after another, and at first you aren't sure that whether she is or isn't the spy and even if she is, whose side is she on? I started to suspect other spies near the end, I won't reveal more but it's quite the theory. If you like action movies with lots of explosions and close escapes and car chases and crashes and random murder by machine gun, it's the movie for you. It was a fun summer film, not to be taken too seriously.
Oh and if any of you are recruiting spies, do NOT choose women who look like Angelina because no amount of make-up and facial prosthetics can hide those lips. She's ALWAYS recognizable.
As an additional bonus, here is some eye candy. Where did I find this video? Umm. My daughter says "I have something for you." and sends me the link. Oh, um, thanks hon. I'm so passing that on. LOL Enjoy.
I almost sent you this video when I saw your tweet about this post! This song KILLS ME! It has been stuck in my head for the past few days. The 44 second mark is quite impressive.
Kristin sent this to you??? God, Tam, I'm sorry, we DID have a nasty influence on her this past weekend!! I really tried to contain myself, I did, but...well....I'm sorry.
Only about Kristin, not the video...
I gotta get me one of those. ice cream optional.
MY FRIEND SHOWED ME THIS VIDEO TODAY!!! He thinks Cazwell is so cute. I don't. But it's a funny video.
The girl child is going to fit in so well with us in SF. :P
Hahaha Polt somehow I *kiiiiinda* think -- given the contents of Tam's blog -- that Kristin already knows her mom pretty well and that none of us "corrupted" her at the pool party ;-)
Thanks for the eye-candy, Tam. Cute video. Cute guys. :)
I LOLed about the "lips" comment. I am SO not a fan of the bee-stung collagen lips look. It would be hilarious if SNL did a skit about the idea you bring up about Angelina Jolie's lips in Salt but alas by the time their fall season starts Salt will be a distant memory.
Great round up of the movie - as long as the kidlet enjoyed it... that's all that matter...
When do you get home...
You and the kid, great minds think alike. LOL Yeah, :44 is impressive.
I think I started the corruption before you got to her Polt. You just cemented it a bit further. Sigh.
Oh, I agree Enrico. He's NOT that cute. But yeah, for fun it's good.
She doesn't visit my blog Justin, at least not that I am aware, she has no interest in my stuff really, but she knows what I read.
The thing with her lips though is I've seen her really young and I think they are au naturel, or pretty damn close.
I think I fear SF more than the Puntabuparty Kris. Seriously, I am quaking in my boots, or socks as the case is right this minute. :-)
She did enjoy it EH. We leave tomorrow morning, when we get out butts out of the hotel and it should take 8-9 hours to get home. So I hope by dinner tomorrow or early evening anyway. I'm looking forward to being home.
Oh and Polt, now my threat is "Do you want to sleep in the hallway like Nathan?" LOL
Too funny that Kristin sent you that link!! :) Safe driving home tomorrow!
Thanks Chris. I know, my kid. Sigh.
"I think I fear SF more than the Puntabuparty Kris. Seriously, I am quaking in my boots, or socks as the case is right this minute. :-)"
Yeah, I would be careful with keeping the girl child away from those other three. They are bound to be bad influences.
"Oh and Polt, now my threat is "Do you want to sleep in the hallway like Nathan?" LOL"
So I corrupted her, but I gave you an additional discipline technique, so it all balances out in the end right? :)
That's one way of looking at it Polt. LOL I wrote that before I saw your blog post. We both killed ourselves at that picture of Nathan in the hall. Too funny.
LOL Oh, you're a clever one. :-)
I saw this video yesterday. LOL she is definitely her mother's daughter. Too funny!
It seems to be making the rounds Lily.
