Salt (2010)

Evelyn Salt: By this, I take it you think everybody is who they say they are.

That quote right there is a pretty good summation of the movie.  Angelina Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, a CIA spy in their Russian house.  One fine day, a Russian national walks into the CIA cover business where she works and offers up some tasty pieces of information.  Apparently Evelyn Salt is a Russian agent who will kill the Russian President the very next day.  Clearly, Evelyn claims she is no Russian spy.

We think.  She leads us to believe.  Kinda.  Turns out she is, as we see through flashbacks her training as part of a super dooper double secret KGB program to replace American children with Russian sleeper agents.

And apparently they are everywhere.

I don't want to give too much more away, but no one is quite who they say they are, nor are they doing exactly what you would think they should.  Fun movie, kept ya guessing pretty much right up until the end.  The ending was predictableish; sequel chances I'd say are 20%.

I give it 12/15 cover stories.
