Salt (2010)

When I first saw the trailer for this film, it really looked like a movie I wanted to see. Though, despite my interest after seeing the trailer - I waited a bit to see what others thought.

From the reviews I read, many people just didn't like the film. Though, I went to see it anyways. And, I can say - I was really disappointed.

The film started out with a really good storyline - it was very interesting and unique in its own way. Though, somehow the movie lost direction after awhile - things just started falling apart.

There was a point in the movie where I thought I knew which direction the film was going. And, if it had gone in the direction that I thought - I think it could have worked. But, it didn't - it took a turn. And, that turn was for the worse. It only went downhill from there.

(Note: For those who have seen the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about. I was a bit surprised at how the movie had a really good opening and introduction to the story. It just all got lost as the movie progressed).

Once the movie and its storyline started falling apart, it really lost direction. From this point on, it really felt like the whole movie was just thrown together. And, not in a good way - a bad way. It all seemed hurried in an effort to just finish the movie.

Though the film has a good storyline and interesting concept, it really lacks focus. And, this is what made the movie make a turn for the worse.

For those who have been thinking about seeing this film, I'd say - save your money. It's really not worth it in my opinion. I don't even recommend it as a rental.

It definitely threw me for a loop. It had a good storyline, it just kind of fell apart - like they threw it all together. I think it could have been a good movie had they taken more time and energy into the storyline, it was just poorly executed. Thanks for stopping by!
