A copy of Salt

By taiwanrepublic

Salt was released around the time Russian spies were caught, most notably Anna Chapman. The plot has many holes, but overall it was a decent performance put up by Angelina Jolie. Olympus on the other hand copies the same terrorist attack at the white house, where president was held hostage at the presidential bunker. Only difference is we currently have North Korea crisis, and the bad guys are the Koreans. The plot is somewhat better than Salt, but how many times do you want Hollywood to produce movies about attack on White House and hostage situation at the bunker? While I've seen worse movies this year, I have to give this below a so-so rating.

Xcellent Movie

The movie was relevant utilizing the US's history of squatting in other people's countries under the guise of implementing Democracy, and it's cruelty to others with some of the possible repercussions of these acts. It was simply a really well put together experience as movies go!

Even a movie has to be believable - better technical advisor needed

Good action, plot, and characters. Battle in front of white house = disappointed, except for close up action. Who stands up on open ground in a fire fight? After those scenes the story kept me in my seat.

Great Movie

I didn't know much about the movie before going, and I was pleasantly surprised. Great action and just downright scary. I don't want to give anything away, but if you like action movies, it's definitely worth seeing...and praying something like this never happens!
