Well, thank goodness she is Angelina Jolie!!!!! Apparently, it could have been Tom Cruise (a male character - Ethan Salt???) but we were spared! *Phew*
Anyways, who else could have played the role? Go watch the movie and give me your views. I believe none could have pulled it off as well as Mrs Pitt! But i am biased! ;-)
All in all, a great show! Many say it's a no brainer compared to Inception (see here) - well, i must admit tho that it keeps you guessing quite a while - who indeed is Salt? Is she a CIA agent? If so why did she do that? Is she a Russian spy? If so, why did she do that? And it has sufficient twists and a whole load of good action sequences to please this blogger here.
But then again, just having Angelina Jolie on screen for a couple of hours would satisfy me. Hehe.
At the end of the day, i recall my dismay when i first caught the exciting trailer to this movie - another action movie??? Why????? Such a waste of talent! Why doesn't she do more roles like the ones she did in Girl, Interrupted, A mighty heart or Changeling? She has proven that she can be a brilliant actress, not just an action movie star or a pretty face (with a great body to go with it).
Having said that, as stated above, who else (female actor) can do action like she does too?
