SALT is an enjoyable film, not on par with recent Bourne and Bond entries perhaps but an enjoyable if not plausible thriller on par with TAKEN with some flavor of The FUGITIVE. It's also commendable for giving us a trailer which clips almost entirely from the first hour of the film, instead of telegraphing the reveal and even ending like many similar films. The issue of "identity" is immediately resonant to the Christian, the possibility that love may have transformed someone entirely is also curious, and the film explores the tightrope between love and vengeance.
