Goofs for

  • Revealing mistakes: In one shot, a SWAT officer can be seen holding a Colt Model 933 carbine fitted with an EOTech red dot sight, the sight being mounted backwards on the weapon.

  • Continuity: When Salt walks into the holding room to interrogate Orlov, she places a black plastic ashtray containing a pack of cigarettes on the corner of the table. It stays there throughout several following scenes, but has vanished when she's in the room alone.

  • Continuity: When Evelyn is climbing on the outside of the building, in some shots her dog's head is visible sticking out of her backpack. In other shots the backpack is zipped up tight.

  • Errors in geography: In one of the Washington DC scenes, Salt is seen entering the Archives/Navy Memorial Metro station, and emerging from the L'Enfant Plaza station, without ever boarding a train.

  • Continuity: When Evelyn first goes on the run, she enters a stairwell, takes off her shoes and tosses them in the corner. The next shot shows the security camera's view. The shoes are in a different position.

  • Revealing mistakes: While the CIA raids Evelyn Salt's Apartment, they throw a flash grenade into the home, every single window on the exterior shatters but none of the mirrors or household appliances get damaged.

  • Factual errors: The Russians refer to Salt by her Russian last name, Chenkov. However, in Russia, as in many other Slavic countries, last names have different endings when referring to a man or a woman. In this case, Chenkov is a male last name. In reality, the name would have been Chenkova.

  • Revealing mistakes: The scene where Salt is mixing the bottles of bleach and a dark brown liquid to make an explosive device. When she starts to pour them into another container, the cap on the bottle of brown liquid is still on it.

  • Continuity: The movie is supposed to take place during the winter time as evidenced by the fact that there were no leaves on any of the trees during the scenes in D.C. and NYC. However, during the first chase seen on the overpass which took place in D.C. there were leaves on all the trees. This is because that seen was actually filmed in Albany, NY later on during the spring.

  • Continuity: When Salt is locked in the CIA building she takes a chair and throws it on the floor, in the next scene the chair is gone (at the security camera's and the normal camera).

  • Continuity: Despite all her climbing and sliding down the elevator shaft, Salt manages to escape with her white shirt completely clean.

  • Continuity: Outside the Vice President's funeral, the CIA lapel pin on Ted Winter's coat changed orientation between shots.

  • Continuity: The ring that Orlov wears changes fingers. When he is on the helicopter with the baby it's on the third finger. When the children kiss it it's on the second finger. At the junkyard it's back on the third finger.

SALT:Jason Bourne with a Vagina, 27 July 2010
Author: aakashravs from India
Salt brings good old memories from the Jason Bourne franchise. The Film revolves around Angelina Jolie(Salt) who is a CIA agent who may or may not be a Russian spy. It basically has everything one would want in a summer action flick from Car chases,explosions,a hot chick and an audience engaging 100mins of motion cinema. Before going into the critics reviews we must understand that it was made by Phillip Noyce as a SUMMER ACTION-FLICK and it perfectly achieves what its looking for.It engages the audiences for the entire 100mins with us playing the guessing game every minute.Even though it can be a little predictable,it is worth a watch for the light pleasure in viewing especially after having watched the brain-cracking Inception. With that said, i would wrap it up by saying that Jolie delivers a fine performance, with good special effects and fine direction by Phillip Noyce.It is very rare and pleasing to see the lead role of such an action film taken up by a woman in Hollywood, and it definitely works. Perfect 100mins killer!
