Salt' Movie Review: Peter Travers Weighs In

By |

This week At the Movies, Rolling Stone's Peter Travers recommends that everyone go see current RS cover star Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception . For those who have already seen the summer's best film, there's a new action movie called Salt, starring Angelina Jolie as a CIA agent forced to go rogue after she's accused of being a Russian spy. Travers is pleased to report that Salt, which was originally supposed to star Tom Cruise before the lead role was rewritten for Jolie, is "really great." Like all action films, it asks moviegoers to suspend their disbelief to its utmost breaking point, and while the film itself is unbelievable, the well-staged action sequences from director Phillip Noyce make Salt a ride worth taking.

Also this week: Travers asks his followers on Twitter to tell him why audiences keep going to bad movies like Grown-Ups and implores his viewers to tune into the Season Three of Mad Men this weekend.
