Angelina gets a high-impact workout as a spy on the run in ‘Salt’
If you’ve never understood the appeal of Angelina Jolie, “Salt” may be required viewing. It’s a vehicle designed to show off its star in all her glory, and director Philip Noyce and director of photography Robert Elswit are obviously die-hard fans of their leading lady, who puts in overtime here to earn her paycheck (which was reportedly $20 million).Jolie has never been one to try to get by on a pretty face and some sex appeal. Like Susan Sarandon, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Pfeiffer and other beauties of the previous generation, she knows you need more than just good looks to carry a movie. Jolie’s spellbinding, swimming pool-deep eyes let us know she always has something cooking in her kitchen, and it’s usually worth waiting for.
